- by Firefox user 14375198, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5This addon does exactly what it says it does and I love it for its simplicity. However, there are 2 things that keep me from giving it a 5 star rating:
1. The icon is just a static (and IMO ugly) image. It would be better to use the icon to indicate blocked cookies (red), blocking some/3rd party orange, and green allowing all. A material design, outline cookie would be really nice and blend in with FF own icons.
2. When changing cookie settings (ie, allowing some), a page requires a refresh. The addon does not trigger a page refresh, nor does it provide any settings to control or show a warning.
Otherwise a very nice and simple addon that does what its supposed to do. Thanks and keep up the good work!
Developer responseposted 3 years agoMy design skills are (obviously) terrible, and this is unlikely to change. However, the code is open source (https://github.com/craigmiskell/cookiemaster) so by all means, please feel free to submit Pull Requests with better looking icons of your own design, or from other free/opensource origins.
- by NameThatNobodyTakes, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Finally a replacement for the great but unfortunately gone CookieMonster addon. I don't have much experience with this addon yet but it seems to do its job and is pretty easy to use.
However when you set a cookie permission, the addon keeps this decision permanent (that means the cookie allowance is still set if you close Firefox and reopen it) unless you delete the permission again in the preferences menu or deselect the permission if you go to the particular website again → That's a feature from CookieMonster which I would really like to be resurrected, namely also giving the option of allowing cookies only on a per-session basis. If this feature is implement, I'll gladly bump up my rating to a 5.
- by ICJCSC, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5I want to like this, it's just what I need to replace the old CookieMonster (RIP). The problem is it doesn't actually delete any cookies! They are all still there in the Preferences window even though CookieMaster shows they aren't allowed.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoThat's odd; it's working fine for me, and presumably is also for the few dozen other users.
My only wild guess is that they were pre-existing cookies; CookieMaster doesn't *delete* existing cookies, just prevents them being set in the first place (well, javscript-set cookies are deleted immediately after they're set, but it's close enough)
If it's not that, and you're available to help debug this further, please get in touch with me by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by raising an issue on github: https://github.com/craigmiskell/cookiemaster/issues and we can delve deeper into what's going on.
Edit: Just released 1.0.2 that fixed a bug related to third party cookie handling, that *might* have been responsible for the behaviour you saw.
- by Firefox user 13828959, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Good extension to replace cookieSafe, which is no longer maintained. Also works on Firefox 57 while cookieShield does not. I would have put 5 stars if an option "allow for the session" had been present. This could be a good improvement. Thanks to the author for making our life easier. A tip: this module works when cookies are allowed in the firefox options.
