Great but doesn't work in private browsing mode (Firefox fault).

Needs a white list so when you flip the kill switch, only the ones you want get saved.

Just one thing missing Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Only 4 stars because I would love to see the extra option to kill all "session-only" cookies with one click. Just like restarting FF, but without having to restart FF. That would make this the killer cookie killer addon. :)

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple and very effective addon,does what it says:quickly gets rid of unwanted/obnoxious cookies.

*Unfortunately*,it no longer works in Nightly and Aurora,yet another victim of the faster release cycle.
I hope this gets sorted before the breakage is also in the normal release channel,because it's a very useful addon.

Actually, does not appear to work on FF 4.0RC1.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.10). 

It works fine for me on FF 4.0RC1. As always, it is recommended that you contact the author if you are having difficulties. I have worked with everyone who has contacted me with a problem, and don't know of anyone who has had an unresolved problem that I am not actively pursuing. (I'm working with someone now.) I cannot help with or fix problems that I do not know exist. It is rare that I read these reviews, and reviews like this provide no useful information for troubleshooting.

excellent... but a question Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add !Use it since a few monthes...But I wonder if it would not be possible to implement another function :beeing able to kill different cookies (I mean from different sites) in the same time...The options killing all cookies... and all but... are very good, yes...But many times I'd like to kill only a few cookies,and it's a little hassle to click all time on the iconto delete not all but only the ones I want :-)For example, If I may say, in No Script add, this function is very pleasant to use :the windows remains open until I clik somewhere else.Well, hope you'll consider this suggestion,and even better that you'll be able to include it in a further version of your exellent add.

This is almost a 5 ***** add, but the little annoying thing I mentionned makes me say 4,5 **** :-)

I LUV my CookieKiller! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

At last...a cookie add-on which has the features I've been looking for AND, also, provides cookie deletion "convenience". I happen to want cookies off my computer ASAP most of the time, and so I find myself spending much time throughout the day constantly opening the Firefox Cookie Manager and deleting them. It gets tiresome doing that, but if I'm going to be "paranoid", at least I'm glad Firefox offers me the opportunity do so! Sometimes I disable first party cookies (never 3rd party cookies) and a lot of websites do work without enabling first party cookies, but for the many that don't work, I again find myself reaching for the FF Cookie Manager a lot --- and I do mean "a lot". Anyway, I periodically have been searching through the Firefox add-ons, looking for something that would allow me a much faster and convenient way of deleting cookies. For the last 3 years, I've heard about many cookie extensions that are very popular, but after reading about them, I would discover they were not quite what I was looking for. On September 19, I viewed "all" the cookie extensions Firefox offers (very time consuming!) and found 3 add-ons that interested me, and so I downloaded them, which included "CookieKiller". After viewing how they actually worked, it was an easy decision for me to uninstall them...EXCEPT for "CookieKiller"!

I never wanted anything fancy, or bloated with things I didn't need, or basically duplicates of the Firefox Cookie Manager. CookieKiller is a time-saver and contains the options I've been looking for:
(1) View cookies on current website from an "easy accessible location"
(2) View cookies accumulated on other websites, also - for those times I wish not to delete all cookies instantly
(3) Block cookies
(4) Unblock cookies
(5) Kill current website cookies
(6) Kill all cookies except current website cookies
(7) Kill all cookies
(8) Enable permanent blocking of removed cookies
(9) Only show top-level domains in menu
.......I personally don't check this option because I prefer to see the related domains, also. AND I discovered a nice surprise when I first saw cookies listed from a website with the related domains listed. The subdomains are "indented", which allows me to quickly differentiate between websites instantly and, also, quickly "kill" off the subdomain(s) if I wish. Example:
mozilla.org
....addons.mozilla.org
In this case, I might wish to quickly delete the subdomain, "addons.mozilla.org", but leave the main domain linger awhile longer. Again, I really like the "indent" feature.

This is simply terrific, and so to the developer of this simple but unique extension, who stated:
"I developed CookieKiller for my personal use and decided to release it in case anyone else might find it useful."
I am s-o-o-o-o happy you decided not to keep this for just your personal use. Thank you for sharing...and "hats off to you", Joseph Moran!

NOTE: I would like to submit a request for the developer's consideration.
Regarding "closing of the icon".
QUESTION:
Since the icon stays open when I "don't" delete a cookie and I need to close the icon myself, would it be possible to have the icon continue to stay open when I "do" delete a cookie, allowing me to to delete a 2nd cookie while it is still open...instead of having to reopen the icon for deletion of a second cookie? (I hope that doesn't sound like I want to be spoon-fed, too!)

Unusable with thousands of cookies.
I am testing my web site and need to try it with new cookies, This CookieKiller can't do the job.
At first it lags to build an unuseful huge menu showing each of my cookies.
And then it takes forever to scroll all the way up to delete te cookie for the current web site.

Nice add-on, but if you have many cookies, the option to delete only the cookies from current domain needs to be scrolled up completely when clicking the statusbar icon.

There should be an option to toggle between showing "All Cookies" or showing "Only Cookies from current Page"....

Joseph, will you think about that option please ?

Outstanding - No fuss, no muss add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is great - it's lightweight, it works as advertised, and above all, it has a committed developer who listens to what users say and you can see/watch this add-on maturing and improving right in front of you.

It's important to note it's functionality - it's name is fitting; CookieKiller is suitable for people who routinely clear cookies for whatever reason. If you set Fx to clear all cookies on close for privacy reasons, then you too will find this add-on is right on target, giving you even finer tuned ability to easily delete a site's cookies whenever you want to without having to quit or pull up Preferences and then navigate to the Privacy tab and then open up the cookie manager. (oh, and the dev just added context menu item to open the cookie manager, too! whadya know!)

While I'd encourage anyone who deletes cookies to try it, keep in mind it's name: CookieKiller. It's purpose is to kill cookies so, by design, it's not a cookie manager per se. Like the developer notes, this add-on doesn't protect any cookies - but that's the key to its brilliance and usefulness: it's focused, fills a niche, and isn't trying to be everything to everyone, which always invites bloat and hogs memory.

Easy to use. If you surf the net for a while, the list of cookies gets long. It would be good if you could group cookies from the same site in folders (like in standard Firefox cookie manager) instead of using indent. Or at least allow this option in preferences. Also a link to open standard Firefox cookies manager in CookieKiller menu could be useful (again you can let people choose if the want the link) in preferences. Not so important, but icons for CookieKiller actions in menu look like they are made in Paint Brush. Maybe you could find something nicer. :)
