Developer responseposted 3 years agoIn version 3.0.32 the functionality to import and export add-on settings has been added in "Preferences".
On import settings can be selected to either replace all existings settings or become merged - and only added if there are no rules for a website set.
Thanks for your feedback!
- by Firefox user 12315590, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Great functionality, albeit somewhat clunky UI. In contrast to similar addons, this one makes it possible to individually select cookies to keep or delete and it has a "profile" mode where you can delete cookies based on if you want to stay logged in or not. The developer is very responsive to design/UX recommendations and fixes issues very quickly.
- by Firefox user 14139753, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Compared to my previous cookie manager, which stopped working around FFx 59, this is obviously a powerful and sophisticated tool. Unfortunately, I am finding it non-intuitive to use. What would help me is a brief tutorial centered around use cases. Give examples with screenshots of how Flag Cookies can be used to solve specific problems. And please use simple language. "Sub-domains are understood" is a short sentence, but its meaning is not immediately obvious to non-experts.
Edited to add: Before I study the help text on Github, here is something that is either a bug or I am not understanding FC at all. When I click on the cookie icon in a particular tab, the FC overlay window opens, top left corner says "Cookies for domain: https://www.ABC.com" but in fact, I am on page https://www.XYZ.com, page https://www.ABC.com is open two tabs over to the right! (And on that tab, FC does show the correct URL.)
Developer responseposted 3 years agoThank you very much for your feedback. I started to work on a 'Help' section which is provided in the latest release of FlagCookies and I also tried to reword some of the information provided on the add on listing, as well as more meaningful tooltips.
The help or documentation can be viewed online at the FlagCookies wiki @ Github:
At the moment of writing, this is work in progress. But I tried to provide a starting point inside there, about the basic "flag switches" and "modes" which are offered and where they might be possible used; so I gladly would invite to review this new addition.
Is the issue you report reproduce able? Does this always occur?
Usually, the domain which got loaded should be displayed. I am also not sure which exact version you are using to get an insight if this was caused by another request interfering with what Flag Cookies thinks is the current active domain/tab you are on. But the issue might be resolved already in a later version.
In case you don't call a Github account your own, can you provide me with the urls of those two domains and the details which version you are using at the moment? You can drop me this information by email, using the support address and I try to troubleshoot the issue.
Or you can open an issue on Github instead.
- by Konrad, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Exactly what I wanted, but it's on early phase of development, so features like: notification when deleting cookies (like Self-Destructing Cookies) or delay before deleting are missing.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoThank you for your review.
Update to reply: In version 2.0.4 - user choice enabled/disabled notifications have been added. In a previous release, also a tooltip when hovering the mouse over the Flag Cookies icon, when actions have been taken, can now be viewed and displayed, similar to the "page action log" in preferences.
At present, you can see the count of removed cookies on the cookie icon in the toolbar. In addition, there are written details under "preferences" (reachable in the main view) and "page action log" for review.
To add further information when hovering the mouse over the icon. I haven't looked into that, but this sounds like a good addition to the interface!
Regarding the delayed removal of cookies, I would require more information. The main feature of the add-on, is the ability to remove unwanted cookies automatically if not allowed or used as profile cookies. Or to delete particular unwanted cookies by flagging them especially.
But if you miss this as a feature and you want to provide me with more background information where a delay might be useful, I can see how this fits in or if this could be added as a addition to Flag cookies.
The easiest way would be to add your feedback as an issue on the add-ons Github issues page:
I then try to get in touch with you about this feature.
