1. This add-on cannot detect the currently set cookies. Only after reload will be cookies detected.
2. This add-on prevents setting of cookies even in the "Allow All" mode. You have to enable each domain separately.
It is hard to find any realistic scenario when this add-on might be needed. That is why it is useless to me.
Regarding reloading: OK, I could accept it, if there was a hint that one has to clean up all cookies by himself and reload page.
Regarding "there is no realistic scenario": Of course there many such scenarious. Here is just one example. You disable some cookies to remove some advertising or tracking . On many sites this blocks also some functionality like commenting or sharing via Twitter or Facebook. In most cases you don't care about this. But sometimes you want to write a comment or share the content. To enable this, you have to enable blocked cookies. You don't want to spend hours analyzing what cookie is responsible for this. You just enable all cookies (and accept tons of advertising), reload page, write a comment of share the content, then disable all cookies (from the black list) again.
There are many similar scenarios, when you want temporarily enable some cookies, but don't want to waste time analyzing which ones you need. You just enable all blocked cookies, do what you need, then again disable all blocked cookies.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoReview of your review:
1: It drops the cookies that are not permitted, and doesn't store them away so it can force them through if/when you decide to allow them for a domain. While it technically could (although a bit complicated) the chances are reasonable that some web pages wouldn't deal well with this, and it is safer to require the user to reload the page after allowing the domain.
2: The extension is all about controlling which domains may set cookies; there is no realistic scenario in which you would install it if you want to 'Allow All' cookies. The setting you refer to is for 3rd party cookies; honestly, I can't imagine anyone wanting to set that to 'Allow All' either, but it seemed rude not to at least give people the choice.
