For a few weeks now even protected cookies are forgotten by Firefox. Uninstalled.
Easy to use cookie addon that lets you protect important cookies so you don't accidentally delete them!
For my own usage this plugin is a "must have" : it's the only one offering a white list for deleting all unwanted or unknown cookies in a snap, and managing the white list is very simple, right on the main dialog window. I don't use other fonctionalities like bloking domains (which seems to have a glitch from reading other comments - I use spybot S&D to set a black list within FF configurations). Thus for that sole functionality I give this plugin 5 stars.
It´s NOT deleting unprotected cookies on startup on 3.6.23.
It was a problem in co-op with session-saver.
Please be careful with this. If you block cookies for a site, you can not allow them again later, thus you risk that a blocked site is impossible to use.
Uninstalling the add on does not change this.
Please check this bug:
Just the best one. Although it should start by a wizard that protect cookies that have an expiration date and works only in secure connection. Because all the password for GMail, G+, FB etc... are in these little cookies. Last stuff, it should also integrate itself with the automatic cleaning of the privacy tab in FF preferences. :)
As I have previously mentioned, as have others - allowing by domain would be useful - and updating to work with Fx 7 and beyond would also be good.
Works for me.
Since the last update, CC has stopped permanently blocking cookies for me.
It blocks them in a session, but as soon as the browser is restarted, the cookies are nolonger blocked.
It still protects selected cookies, which is something. I just wish Firefox had better cookie add-ons. Surprisingly they're all pretty poor.
Very useful addon.
(1) Allow wildcard entries (like Adblock) so that you can whitelist all pages on the trusted intranet.
(2) Sometimes using private browsing clears Cookieculler entries. Add an option to sync between browsers (like XMarks) or allow export/import of CookieCuller entries.
Love this addon, only discovered it recently, glad I finally have control over cleaning up cookies. Just remember not to use Firefox's clear cookies option as this clears out all cookies, even protected ones. Prefer this to Cookie Monster, small and simple. Two features I would like to see added (which probably have been mentioned already) are the ability to search through cookies and an option to delete cookies on shutdown rather than startup.
I love this Add-On, it's incredibly useful.
Although it would be nice if there was a 'Search' option to search through the cookie list for the cookies you want to protect.
A possibility to whitelist cookies.
This addon is very useful because Firefox's feature "clear cookies on exit" doesn't let to whitelist cookies. In case this addon ever becomes un-usable, might anyone know of a similar addon that's regularly updated?
Enfin un vrai gestionnaire de cookies où l'on peut sélectionner les cookies que l'on veut conserver, ce qui permet de supprimer les cookies "indésirables" quand on quitte Firefox. D'ailleurs je ne comprends pas que les navigateurs internet ne le propose pas par défaut, ne serais-ce que pour des raisons de sécurité. Merci à l'éditeur de cette extension.
Thank you for this add on. Along with CookieSafe, I have found possible Cookie overkill and have an absolutely fine-tuned control of the cookies that are on my computer. Which is how it should be.
Does what it said. Great with the whitelist, but it needs more features to be a complete cookie manager.
Boomer, if you're using TACO or Beef TACO extensions, every time you restart, you'll find the opt-out cookies those extensions are meant to put there.
Does not seem to work. I protected some cookies. Clicked Remove All Cookies. The next time I start the "deleted" cookies were back!
Thank you for a tool to create a "Cookie Keep List", something that 'standard' Firefox does not provide. Whilst Firefox Cookie Exceptions provides a method to Block or Allow or Allow For Session, it does not provide the ability to keep cookies already accepted, and this add-on does just that. It could be further enhanced if it deleted the unwanted cookies either when closing Firefox or at timed intervals.
Thanks for a great add-on!
Would it be possible to have it delete all unwanted cookies every 5 minutes instead of just every time I restart Firefox? I rarely restart my browser, and would like the unwanted cookies removed more often.
Brilliant Plugin, however, needs backup/restore of cookies and CookieCuller settings, password protection of CookieCuller settings and some method of disabling Firefoxes native cookie deletion which unfortunately overrides CookieCuller's protection.
This is the only tool that I know off to help me create a whitelist of cookies that I want to keep and automatically delete the rest that I don't care for. This way I keep myself logged into websites I want remain logged into across browser sessions. But at the same time automatically delete all the other cookies that I don't care for. Good job and thank you for creating this add on.
CookieCuller is the only tool I know of that allows for managing individual cookies. Most cookie management tools provide only rules based on server addresses. In certain situations, a more fine-grained control is desired.
I agree to the criticism of some of the reviewers regarding the user interface. In the beginning, one must experiment a bit in order to establish the correct interplay between the cookie management of firefox and CookieCuller: I usually switch off all cookie deleting done by firefox and switch on 'Delete Unprotected Cookies on Startup' in Tools -> Add-ons -> CookieCuller -> Preferences. It would be very helpful if this important option could be moved to Tools -> CookieCuller. To avoid an unintentional loss of cookies in the beginning I suggest to shut down firefox and to make a backup copy of the file cookies.sqlite in one's firefox profile directory.
Another con is that CookieCuller deletes unwanted cookies only at the next start of firefox instead of deleting them at shut down.
Bottom line: Thanx for making available this nice little helper!
this add-on does not place options in the tools drop box on fire fox 3.6.8 the only option is in add-ons delete unprotected cookies at start up.
i rate this 0% don't use it' you'll end up deleting all your cookies, i now have to replace via Acronis True Image.
