No matter the whitelist, I still have to reidentify myself and go through a lot of verifications. It does not work well for sites where I want to keep cookies. Going to look for another app.
EDIT: I had some time to troubleshoot some things more, and it must have been some glitch maybe: I just disabled all of my extensions, restarted firefox, and then re-enabled cookiebro and it worked by itself. So I re-enabled the same extensions that I had enabled previously, and its still working (apparently). IDK LOL. I remembered that something similar happened with a previous extension some months ago after an update to firefox, and this procedure to troubleshoot it worked (It had slipped my mind at the time of the original review, which of course is not meant to be a bad review or anything).
//////////////// disregard below:
Nice extension (I use it on chromium builds too!), it was actually deleting my cookies in FireFox where many of the other extensions were failing. I was so sad to see it break with v59.x. The issue: When clicking the icon on the toolbar the menu no longer appears, its blank and not the correct size. The options for the extension seem to load in the addon manager, however, I do not see cookies being removed.
I am presuming it might be related to some coming changes in how cookies are being managed?, one of the developers posted about it on reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/80bhv7/new_cookie_management_or_lack_of_in_nightly/duumo43/
Also for reference: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1432743
I look forward to seeing this extension functional again
FirstPartyIsolation + Containers management is important.

Works pretty well!
Finally, a viable and fully featured modern replacement for CookieKeeper !
Beyond the fact that it does what one of my favorite all time addons, Cookie Monster, used to do, it seems to have fixed the issues I have been having with Facebook ever since Firefox Quantum was released. So I'm guessing it was a cookie issue...
I was hoping this would automatically work with the whitelist I set up in Firefox Options before my prior cookie button fell victim to Quantum, rather than having to rebuild a new whitelist. I would like to use Firefox Options to block all cookies, then use a simple add-on button to whitelist particular sites. (Going Firefox Options to add exception is a big huge pain when you are in the middle of something.)
There's no WebExtension API for accessing or managing the Firefox internal whitelist so what you are asking is impossible (at least at the moment).
However, I recommend you to use just Cookiebro. "Enable blacklist filtering" in Options, enter one line to blacklist: *.* and then whitelist the sites you want either by using the whitelist or when needed using the extension icon action. That will then completely block all cookies except the ones you whitelist.
You don't need the Firefox internal whitelist system at all and as you said, it's very cumbersome to use.
Finally a replacement for a very old extension selectivecookiedelete that fits my needs: periodic manual cleaning of cookies with the ability to review cookies that have been saved in the browser since the last clean-up (so that I can see what should be whitelisted). I have tried Cookie AutoDelete, but it doesn't support this workflow (see issue #225 on their repo). Cookiebro solves this issue for me.
One feature that I'd like to see is a way to clear only non-whitelisted session cookies. It's a bit inconvenient that the trashbin button in the options deletes all of them, including session cookies from wl'ed domains; it goes against the idea of having a whitelist. - Disregard that, 1.1.0 is now perfect for this!
With a better title ("*bro" can put off some part of the audience) and a GitHub repo I can see this add-on going places. Thanks!
Thank you for the feedback! Cookiebro 1.1.0 now has two new buttons that allow you to either delete all session cookies or just the non-whitelisted session cookies. That was a good suggestion!
Good replacement for my previous cookie addon. One thing it needs is for the icon to change so I know the status (white listed or not) of the current site I'm on.
Thank you for the feedback and the suggestion! Cookiebro 1.1.0 should now support changing extension icon (enable in Options). Note that when you change tabs, the icon status isn't automatically updated. It's updated only when navigation happens.
Works well and author responded quickly to a bug fix. I prefer this to the other cookie addon which would only delete when you closed a tab. This one works by deleting cookies within specified times and adds a few other privacy features.
