Be careful with old versions!
These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.
- Delete Temporary Cookies and Permissions When All tabs for URL Close
- When selected, instead of the temporary cookies and permissions being deleted upon exit from Firefox, they are deleted on a per URL basis when all tabs for a URL are closed.
- Display Icons Indicating Default Setting
- When selected, the icon for a default setting will indicate what the default setting is, instead of just being the same icon.
- Display Tooltip When Hovering Over Cookie Monster Menu (Selected by default)
- This is the default, but if this is un-selected, the tooltip is not displayed when hovering over the icon for CM.
- There is an additional icon set, selectable in the Options dialog
- The name of the icon set is Rosenbloom, after the name of the gracious person who created them for CM.
- The Default option is what you know (and possibly love ;)).
- Automatic (a.k.a "easy-peasy") Mode
- Cookies Accepted By Default are Deleted When All tabs for a URL Closed. If a user has set the cookie permissions for a site to Accepted, then the cookies will not be deleted, just as before.
- When this mode is selected, the default permissions are set to "Accept for Originating Site Only," so no 3rd Party Cookies.
- When a tab is opened and a site visited, the cookies for the site are accepted automatically.
- When tabs open for all of a URL are closed, any cookies accepted by default will be deleted.
- If desired, a user can change the default setting to also accept 3rd Party Cookies via the Firefox interface. However, any 3rd party cookies will not be deleted until FF is closed.
- To NOT have the cookies for a site deleted, just accept them from the CM menu, as before.
In addition, there is a new option: "Apply Cookie Settings to both HTTP and HTTPS". If this is set, the CM menu will not show the scheme and when a cookie setting is chosen via the CM menu, a permission for both HTTP and HTTPS will be set for the current site.
Moreover, I changed the keyboard shortcut to Control + Alt + M, from Control + Alt + C, as there were reported issues with Control + Alt + C.
Lastly, I made several other changes in response to a previous review from Mozilla, but kept the minimum version at 37.0a1. This minimum version change is really an educated guess based on a breaking change in version 37, so if someone can provide me with a more accurate minimum version that works with CM, please let me know.
