Please Vote for API to Fix Broken Add-On(s) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a very useful and simple add-on that I used often. I contacted the Dev to find out why it doesn't work and whether it can be fixed. This was his (Mardeg's) reply:

"I stopped maintaining the extension because upcoming APIs won't allow privileged code in it to work. Vote for:

https://webextensions.uservoice.com/forums/315663-webextension-api-ideas/suggestions/9437394-add-an-api-to-monitor-and-alter-existing-about-con

if you want Mozilla to make it possible"

So there you go, users...go vote on this issue as it affects many add-ons dealing with cookies, which Dev says will "eventually stop working too unless they switch to the upcoming API."

I know there are many who would like this functionality...please vote and comment to change this issue. Thanks!

Toggle Cookies

Really Useful Tool, but would like slightly more functionality Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love this add-on -- thank you! I have cookies mostly blocked and had to go find where to unblock them every time I needed to. What a pain! I like that this tool sits in my task bar and I can simply & easily click on it to allow cookies only when needed. With that said, it is also easy to forget about it. The icon is very small (a good thing! :), and the green check mark (cookies on) is tiny and very hard to see. I tend to forget that I allowed cookies and then I forget to shut them off when I am finished with my session or go to other webpages. I wish it functioned so that cookies were only turned on for that session / page instead of permanently so that when you ended the session or switched to another website, they automatically switched off again. Then it would be a perfect 5 stars! :)

P.S. I realize the increased functionality probably requires a lot more complex development. As a simple on/off toggle tool, this does exactly that very well.

[Correction: The icon doesn't sit in the task bar -- it sits in the add-on bar like mentioned below. I too don't like the add-on bar, but I like my cookie toggle and no-script add-on at the bottom and you can' t drag the icons to the task bar, so it is what it is.]

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.1-signed.1-signed).
