CookieCuller

My usage guide Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Still working GREAT for me on Windows Firefox 12. I made a web page about how I use it.

Whoops, old reliable freebie Horizon Host is down now, so I copied the page over to my ISP Space:

CookieCuller

30 second video Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using the Cookie Culler Firefox extension

This is only 30 seconds, no sound, not very easy to see what's happening. Go FULL SCREEN on it.

CookieCuller

great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I find this extension indispensible. Btw it's not true that deleting cookies blocks future cookies. There's a checkbox for that, which I leave UNchecked.

p.s. if you have trouble installing CC in later FF versions, try using the Nightly Tester Tools extension to override compatibility.

Speed Dial

cookies and Speed Dial Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love Speed Dial on my Fox v.7.01. But one thing, I'm very careful about browser cookies, selectively culling (protecting and removing) with the CookieCuller extension - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cookieculler/
Using that, I keep noticing new cookies from sites I haven't visited since last removing their cookies. Even 3rd party cookies such as scorecardresearch. If I clear such sites' dial panels in SD, it doesn't happen. Conclusion: some sites are setting cookies through just the SD panel loading.

ReloadEvery

extra useful on DirecTV program guide Rated 5 out of 5 stars

DirecTV has this annoying thing where it logs you out every few minutes if you don't click anywhere. I mean, you even have to re-enter your user info. I found a fix, auto-reload the guide every 5 minutes. Then I can leave the Guide in a tab and leave the computer.

PriceBlink - Automatic Price Comparison & Coupons

conflicts with my DirecTV channel guide Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love this, works great on my FF 7.01. I will re-enable it next time I do any online shopping. Meanwhile, though, it's disabled because it conflicts with my DirecTV channel guide. The guide comes up fine but then won't move forward in time. I use the guide daily, shop maybe twice a month. This is NOT A BUG in Priceblink, just one of those things...

FF4 rc1? Yes after all Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When I installed FF4 rc1 over my 3.6.x the add-ons manager said it was incompatible. Booo, because I love this. A few days later I installed the Office Black theme. On FF restart, not only this but a few other 'incompatible' extensions came back to life. My guess, though, is that it wasn't about Office Black, but rather that after several days of restarts, the Nightly Tester Tools extension's Force Add-On Compatibility finally came to life at the exact restart after the Office Black theme install. Electrons, go figure!

Greasemonkey

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love Greasemonkey! It continues to work perfectly well with FF4 RC under the default Theme. So, this isn't a Greasemonkey bug, but I've noticed a problem under some other Themes, for instance Office Black which I just installed.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/office-black/
In my Tools/Add-ons screen, with the default theme I get to see Userscripts (Greasemonkey) in the same left column with Extensions, then am able to open a userscripts screen to fiddle. With Office Black, Userscripts is invisible. I've seen this problem with a couple of other themes.

Office Black

revived incompatible extensions!!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice theme, I love it. Not only that but after the restart on FF4 RC various 'incompatible' extensions rose from the dead. Googlebar, FEBE, Nightly Tester Tools, CopyURL+, Cacheviewer and Copy All URLs. Maybe more too that I just haven't noticed yet. ELECTRONS! We'll see if this new functionality persists...
p.s. so far, the only tweak Id like on this theme would be to have slightly different shades of grey on my toolbars.
p.p.s. now I see a problem in my Tools/Add-ons screen. With the default theme I get to see Userscripts (Greasemonkey) in the same left column with Extensions, then am able to open a userscripts screen to fiddle. With Office Black, Userscripts is invisible. I've seen this problem with a couple of other themes.

googlebar

suddenly working on FF4 RC Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As it says, Not Compatible with FF4. I didn't uninstall it though. And FF4 refused to open my saved xpi. But just now I installed this theme:
Office Black :: Add-ons for Firefox
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/office-black/
And after the restart it suddenly appeared. Yay, I love it!
BTW, after getting Office Black, not only did this Googlebar come back, but so did FEBE, Nightly Tester Tools, CopyURL+, Cacheviewer and Copy All URLs. Maybe more too that I just haven't noticed yet. ELECTRONS!
