Removing unwanted cookies after a certain time? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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.

Good plugin Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

A whitelist for cookies. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

Nice Little Helper Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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!

Great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Protects the cookies you whitelist while deleting the cookies you do not want upon Firefox shutdown. This is the way cookie management should be. Thanks dev!

I was having problems with whitelisted cookies being deleted until I realized that I must set Firefox to not delete cookies (Set privacy setting to "keep until they expire" under Firefox's Options menu). Otherwise, I think Firefox will just override Cookie Culler's whitelist. Let Cookie Culler delete the cookies for you.

Requested features: Great addon but if you want to add anything, I would suggest: 1) grouping cookies by domain for easier organization 2) deleting cookies every x seconds (some sort of timer option).

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

One of the add-ons I use frequently. I was excited to see they finally updated it for Firefox 3. But there is STILL no grouping by domain! C'mon! It makes it much easier to manage if we can expand and collapse domains, and keep or delete by domain. I'm sorry but this is a simple feature which people have been requesting for a long time, and I have to give you 1 star in the hopes that it will prompt you to finally add the feature.

This add-on can cause a mess Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I read an earlier review about someone having trouble unblocking previously permanently blocked cookies. I agree that is a pita. Fortunately I had backed up my profile settings with MozBack before trying this add-on.

I was looking for an addon that allows all cookies temporarily only, while cookies on a whitelist are kept all the time. To me this is the best way of managing your cookies. All sites will work, it's not much hassle to maintain and all unwanted cookies will automaticly be removed.

Luckily i found this addon, which does just that.

Now my requests :)
- icon with menu in statusbar
- delete cookies at shutdown
- allow cookies by domain

"Always on top" problem Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The problem is that the CookieCuller plugin window is set as "always on top" and the window need get closed to be able to use the browser (the plugin window fully covers the browser one)

Quite nice, I like this ability to protect individual cookies and not cookies on a per-domain basis, so I can protect login cookies and discard tracking cookies from the same domain

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon does exactly what it claims to do, and I've been using it for years. I'm only posting this review in hopes that NijaPirateGrrl will read this. Unblocking previously permanently blocked cookies is tricky. Go to firefox's options, privacy, set that to customize to get the extended options that are otherwise hidden. Then you will see the exceptions list within the cookies section, and can remove blacklisted cookies from there. This addon integrates with firefox to have a quick and easy way to block or lock cookies, but to unblock them you have to go about it the old fashioned way. Blocking the wrong cookies can render some sites useless, as you found out, but it can also be undone. :)

Only use this if you NEVER want to use cookies again.
I have to use IE for anything Google-related now because no matter what you do cookies CANNOT be reinabled

I've been using this for a while, but since I just made an account here I wanted to give it a review.

And it's been doing what it's supposed to be doing. I've avoided "Don't allow sites ... to set future cookies" option because of the comments here, though. I don't like irreversible actions.

I've found a nice companion for this addon in Cookie Monster. I mainly just use it to set "Block 3rd Party Cookies". That way it keeps out most of the cookies I never want, while allowing me to login to sites I occasionally use. Then CookieCuller cleans up the list each time I restart Firefox, without removing my regular sites.

it DOES retain protected cookies but you have to ENABLE it at the add-on options.

Now I've only been using this addon a couple weeks, but works as advertised for me. Easy to use, overall nice addon. Maybe you're having addon conflicts? Try turning off others or reinstalling addon, I once had a non-functional addon that worked fine after I uninstalled and reinstalled.

I agree with Hung Lo. This was, as afar as I know, the only add on that allowed you to protect individual cookies. It used to work. Now it ranges from not working at worse to totally unreliable at best. Sigh.

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Does not retain protected cookies. It worked in the past but not for over a year now. As this was the only feature that I wanted from it, it's fairly worthless for me.
