buggy, slow, installs it's own permanent junk Rated 2 out of 5 stars
This add-on does seem to block or remove most cookies, BUT... here is the reason I gave when I uninstalled this and then TACO 4.0 beta (which I tried it a few days later hoping it had the bugs fixed) and involuntarily had a window opened in my browser by Abine asking why : "The reason that I uninstalled is the same as privacysuite 0.738 ; the security pop-up doesn't work properly on web site opening and no cookie pop-up on mouse hover over status bar icon in 4 different versions of Firefox from 5.0 to 7.0.1(newest)(and YES, I turned on both options in preferences). Privacysuite 0.736 works correctly but badly slows the browser, particularly on start-up. I also don't like the FACT that upon uninstall, you left persistent (unremoveable?) cookies on my computer - one of the very things you claim to prevent!" . This after I had submitted a bug report and recieved an email reply stating that they were not aware of any problems, but if there was a problem, it would be due to an "older" version of Firefox I was using (I submitted the bug report with Firefox 5.0.1 which had been released all of two months earlier and was the last version that I tried the add-on with, along with three more recent builds). Too bad. This add-on looked promising, but seems to get less useable with each new build.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.739).
Thanks, here are some facts:
Sorry you didn't have a good experience. It's a little hard to understand everything you are saying, but here are some facts:
1. we never put cookies other than opt OUT cookies (the ones you need that tell advertisers to ignore you) on a browser.
2. we never leave cookies of any type on your browser.
3. we turned off the "hover over feature" by default
