TV Guide problem Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you for this extension which takes care of a major privacy hole in firefox. I used to just manually delete the horde of files in the flash directory every once in a while.
A couple of notes:
1. If you enable the 'Disable DOMStorage' feature, it will break the listings grid at the TV Guide site (www.tvguide.com) so that you cannot change the date or time of the listings. I imagine it might break some other sites as well, so try disabling it if you have a weird problem. Took me a while to figure this one out.
2. If you enable the feature to delete the default flash cookie, you will also lose the flash global settings stored there (camera, microphone, storage). It would be nice if BP could modify the file instead of deleting it to remove just the site-specific stuff while preserving the global settings, though I'm not sure if that's possible.
Please install the latest version (1.41) from my homepage.
See FAQ, first answer, on update problem details!
Newer BetterPrivacy versions use another method to get rid of DOM storage data, thus there is no conflict with web-pages anymore. The latest development version even removed the "Disable DOM storage" setting completely.
Major BetterPrivacy enhancements would be needed to make Flash cookie modifications possible. This would also mean that BetterPrivacy would grow to approximately the double of the current size. In my opinion this is not appropriate for an addon whose business is just cookie deletion. I understand that some users are wondering that BetterPrivacy has a size of 24 KiloByte while it is possible to allow session-LSO deletion by using a batch script of less than 50 Bytes.
