Best for Firefox, Cyberfox_64.

Option "accept until tab closed" missing? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great plugin but I'm confused how to use it: I have configured Firefox to ask me every time a new cookie is created. What option to choose to accept a cookie only until the tab is closed?

SDC as an Add-On .... GUH-REAT .... (With apologies to Frosted-Flakes' 'Tony the Tiger') Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am very impressed ... although a little sad that I've been doing the manual equivalent for such a long time!

For those starting out, if you've got an "Exception List" created in Firefox already (with default policy to deny cookie storage), SDC will honor these settings ... and these sites will be incorporated into your SDC whitelist upon installation. It's likely that the 'list' is the same animal for all I know.

I've noticed when I start the browser (FF v35) it takes about 7 seconds per wall-clock to delete the cookies that were present the last time FF normally ended. Even with the grace-period set to 1 and 0. Is there some sort of setting that would ensure all but white-listed cookies are deleted during the normal FF-shutdown actions? Howz'about for cached objects?

Thanks for the great add-on!!!!

Fabulous! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely love this add-on! Works perfectly on my Android Firefox browser,and compliments Ghostery really well. I can't believe everyone is not using SDC. Big thanks to the developer.

Neat! If only it can detect and control third-party cookies.

Great Add On but Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using this add on for a long time and it works great, all of a sudden with Firefox update 36.0.1 the Icon, menu entries disappeared. The add on list says it's active but where'd it go???

Best cookie manager yet Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the best cookie manager I've used yet. The awesome thing about it is that it doesn't break websites by disabling features they implement using local storage and cookies, but it still allows you to decide whether to keep that info on your system or not.

Amazing!!! Exactly what I needed!!!

Memory usage Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful addon. However, it consumes more than 3 MB of memory (one of the most heavy ones!). It would be awesome if it could be made lighter.
Thanks for the goof work :-)

still using it, still the best Rated 5 out of 5 stars

it's actually the biggest reason why i changed from seamonkey back to firefox.
I learned to trust this addon and simply let it do its thing.

About cookies "hanging around for too long": There's 2 scenarios:
1) - actively closing a tab: "Grace Period" in the Settings to adjust that.
2) - navigating away from a domain in the same tab: I contacted the dev about the exact same issue (why does it take so long until the cookies are destroyed) and they said they get destroyed "eventually" (but it does take long...). After a while I realised that this makes sense: when you do e.g. online banking, you are being redirected and your credentials (essentially cookies) are pushed back and forth between various domains, and that wouldn't work anymore when the cookies were destroyed immediately after changing domains. But yes, more customization in those fields ("eventually" is a little vague), white- and blacklisting are desirable.

About Google and possibly others "cheating" the addon somehow:
It has been said already a few times, and again just a few comments down (i think Skepp Tikal's advice is way too complicated), but i'll say it again:
The google PREF cookie is actually a Firefox preference that is checked under Edit => Preferences => Security: "Block reported..."! Uncheck it & clear your cookies & restart your browser, it's gone.
Google is everywhere. It tells FF (meaning You, the user) which websites are "good" and "bad", and in the process it collects all sorts of data from you.
It makes sense to UNcheck this preference (and I've been doing that even before I started using this addon).

I never had a single entry in SDC's Whitelist. On my machine (and my browsing habits and general FF settings) it's definitely NOT self-populating. Maybe other addon interfering?

Essential for anybody who cares about privacy. It is my "must have" Firefox add-on.

Love this function. I use it to great effect with ghostly! The two together are a powerful combination!

I like the concept, but those cookies hang around far to long after I close their tabs. And I have to keep clearing out the whitelist which keeps self-populating.

How to defeat the persistent google.com PREF cookie Rated 5 out of 5 stars

SDC is outstanding, but it cannot block the google.com PREF cookie. However, I used a method to remove and defeat the google.com PREF cookie, which prevents the PREF cookie from repeatedly and persistently reinstalling after each time a user removes it.

Platform: Firefox 35.0.1 and Firefox 31.4.0esr, Mac OS X 10.8.5

On 02/14/2015, this worked for me. The google.com PREF cookie did not return after I removed the cookie and took the following additional steps:

1) Open Firefox/Preferences/Privacy/Show Cookies/Cookies and remove all google.com cookies.

2) In Firefox/Preferences/Security, deselect "Block reported attack site" and "Block reported web forgeries".

3) When a user selects those settings, the google.com PREF cookie will reinstall in the browser after the user removes the PREF cookie.

4) Quit and close Firefox. This is a necessary step. Otherwise the remaining steps will fail to prevent the googl.com PREF cookie from reinstalling in your browser after you remove the cookie.

5) Open ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/[current Firefox profile folder name such as 9skvsz0g.default-1402623486951, or whatever is the folder name]/cookies.sqlite

6) Drag the "cookies.sqlite" file to the Trash folder. Every conventional cookie in your browser is in that file. You will lose all of those cookies until such time your browser installs them again, except the google.com PREF cookie will not return.

7) Restart Firefox.

8) Firefox automatically will generate in the Profile Folder a new "cookies.sqlite" file in place of the file you put in the Trash folder. The file will not contain the PREF cookie.

9) Before you delete the "cookie.sqlite" file that is in the Trash folder, you can prove that the "cookie.sqlite" file contains the google.com PREF cookie.

10) All *.sqlite files are text files. Right click the "cookies.sqlite" file that is the the Trash folder and chose "Open with TextEdit.app" or any other text editor application.

11) Read the text in the "cookies.sqlite" file.

12) The text "google.com PREFID" will be present somewhere in the long list of characters in the file.

13) The new "cookies.sqlite" file that replaced the offending file will not have the google.com PREF cookie in it.

14) The google.com PREF cookie will not return to the "cookies.sqlite" file unless you select "Block reported attack site" and "Block reported web forgeries" in Firefox/Preferences/Security.

Does what it says.

Please though, change that huge icon back to the normal size (or make it optional). This gigantic icon distorts the bars of people using small icons. Rolling back for now.

I love this approach to cookie management.

However, I would like it to be easier to white-list alternate domains--as found for those web sites that depend upon cookies from multiple domains. Currently, it's easy enough to white-list the domain of the web page itself, but you may notice cookies being destroyed for other domains. The pop-up notification can go by quickly, so you'll have to dig to figure out which domains those are, and then manually add them to the white-list. Youtube is a typical example. I would like to see a way to easily list which other domains have been destroyed for a page (at least in the current session), along with an easy way to add those to the white-list. And, I would also like to see a link to the settings under the tool-bar button.

Again, I love this approach, and I look forward to seeing this evolve further.

Not working. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The addon worked well in the past but recently it has stopped deleting most cookies.

It's a great addon when working but right now it doesn't work.

I love this add-on, but it doesn't work with Slashdot.org.

I have "slashdot.org" in the white list and am logged in on the slashdot.org site, but when I read a story (e.g.: on ask.slashdot.org) I am no longer logged in on the subdomain. If I disable the add-on and go to the same page then I am logged in OK. Cookie information only shows two cookies for slashdot.org, so it's not like there are subdomain cookies getting killed.
