- Noté 5 sur 5par moloco, il y a 2 ansYes, it's the best cookie manager for Firefox and Chrome. It's stable, functional, and the minimal UI is sufficiently usable.
Feature request: could you add "Clear current domain cookies"? This is useful for developers and troubleshooting web site issues. If the current domain is whitelisted, "clear unwanted cookies" will not clear them, even if the user wants to. The workaround is to go to the log and delete each. It would be nice to have the option to clear all current domain cookies. Thank you.
- Noté 5 sur 5par Mr. Axehandle, il y a 2 ansCookiebro is probably the best cookie manager for Firefox and Chrome, built on the bones of the now-abandoned Vanilla cookie manager extension (which I missed). I highly recommend it.
Cookiebro is easy to use, and relatively intuitive. Keep cookies in whitelists and block cookies in blacklists, and easily purge the rest cookies on-demand or automatically. Import or export lists as a simple text file that is simple to edit. The cookie log view and cookie editor are powerful tools whether managing privacy or just debugging.
Minor issues: While adding and removing list items is easy, one can't edit them in place. For example, if I have "getpocket.com" in my whitelist, and want to change it to "*.getpocket.com", I have to add the latter as a new element, and then remove the former. I also wish the extension would sync settings across browsers, so I didn't have to spend as much time importing and exporting.
For managing and auto-deleting cookies, also try the Cookie AutoDelete (CAD) extension. Choosing between that and Cookiebro is a matter of personal preference. I have found CAD to be a bit buggier, but it has some advantages of its own. While it lacks the Cookie Log and Cookie Editor, these aren't essential for the majority of users.
For those who are cautious about their extension use, the developer (Nodetics) has at least one other extension that is Mozilla Recommended, and I suspect Cookiebro has not yet been recommended largely because the UI is perhaps too minimalist and functional, with less frequent updates.

- Noté 5 sur 5par FD, il y a 2 ansI love this extension! Works flawlessly with Waterfox Classic. Lot of options, very useful to preserve login cookies for instance, so you don't have to log again each time. You can see all that stuff that is stored in your browser when you surf and easily get rid of what you don't need, or edit cookies according to your needs, etc. Maybe an option to lock specific cookies could be added, if it's possible, so websites cannot make changes on them (date or data). Thanks anyway to the developer, keep up the good work!
- Noté 5 sur 5par Pascal, il y a 3 ansOke, oke. After your reply I went through cookiebro again and as I said, I like it as the options to allow or block or even edit are great. Anyway, FF is since long not my default browser anymore... I added cookieBRO to Vivaldi and there this add-on cut a figure as the cookie management of vivaldi is still quite spartanic (but there are some recent efforts..) However, will rate ur add-on again on chrome....
This add-on would be perfect. But unfortunately it is not connected to the browser cookie preferences. It works as a stand alone, means the cookie preferences from the add-on won't be updated in the browser preferences... That is not really the idea of an add-on, isn't it?That's the idea. There's no API available for accessing browser's internal cookie preferences. And it really doesn't make sense to use both. Just use Cookiebro.
- Noté 4 sur 5par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 13550075 de Firefox, il y a 3 ansBest cookie manager ever. Can you add support for Multi-Account Containers? Because this extension doesn't delete cookies from containers... in my case.Cookiebro can delete unwanted cookies from other containers as well. However, it requires that you have a tab open for that specific container. This is an unfortunate limitation that Firefox devs didn't want to fix. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1578096
With Cookiebro you can also inspect and manage cookies in a particular container. Just open a container tab and then access e.g. Cookie Editor with Cookiebro.
EDIT: there's an upcoming workaround in the following versions for this.

All of a sudden for some bizarre reason the Whitelist is empty when I run Firefox, every session I can add sites to the Whitelist but on relaunching Firefox it reverts the Whitelist back to empty :(
*** END EDIT ***
Finally! A decent cookie manager that actually works for the stupidly restrictive, uncustomisable and broken mess that is Firefox Quantum 60+ ... or as I call it, Firefox Can't 'um do anything useful with it.Have you changed your Firefox settings or done tweaks in about:config?

- Noté 5 sur 5par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 15260577 de Firefox, il y a 3 ansNot a review and i have nothing to complain about - *i need help.*
Last week or 2, when i start Firefox, check the Cookiebro menu / find that my whitelist and blacklist have disappeared. (Thnk goodness i have them saved.) So far i can see, it is Firefox doing it, not Avast. I don't know whether caused by Firefox setting i changed or yet another troublesome change Firefox made.
I have Firefox set to allow cookies generally.

[they changed the icon provider from google to duckduckgo which is a safe alternative, so you can ignore much of what I posted below]
Best cookie manager hands down. Absolutely amazing little addon! Whitelist approach with timed removal of unwanted cookies is the best approach I can think of to reduce tracking and maintain a functional browsing! 5 stars! Just found the log and cookie editor which is mind blowing! Can even block or whitelist individual cookies on a single website or globally. There is nothing that I have found that comes even close. Deletes ALL unwanted cookies unlike Cookie AutoDelete, and "Self Destroying Cookies", which left hundreds behind. GREAT JOB!
Be sure to disable favicons if you don't trust sending some of your browsing data to duckduckgo. When fetching the favicon, you send the domain to duckduckgo for icon retrieval. This happens only when opening the cookie editor and log.
Please consider adding an option to delete a tabs cookies, and all the rest on tab close.
This would give it a leg up.
- Noté 5 sur 5par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 12150735 de Firefox, il y a 3 ansReplaced Cookie AutoDelete, which did not auto-delete all cookies that were not in the whitelist. This extension does. I am so happy. Kudos!
- Noté 3 sur 5par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 15042220 de Firefox, il y a 3 ansVery unintuitive. What is the default action for cookies with this addon? What happens to cookies that are neither whitelisted nor blacklisted? I have this add on installed and I honestly still don't know how my browser treats a cookie from a brand new site. What is the point of a cookie log that doesn't tell you how the cookies were handled? How should content blocking in Firefox settings be configured? Why write an addon with zero documentation? Hey, geeks can use it so who cares about normal people?
Ugh I miss the old Cookie Monster addon, so intuitive and easy.Cookies that are not whitelisted get "unwanted" status which means that they are subject to deletion either periodically or upon browser startup (see Cookiebro Options page to define how you want it to behave).
In the Cookie Log there is column called "Decision" which is either "Set" or "Blocked". If it says "Set" it means cookie was stored and if it says "Blocked" it means cookie was rejected.
Firefox should be set to allow cookies so that Cookiebro can take care of the handling.
- Noté 1 sur 5par Utilisateur ou utilisatrice 13445322 de Firefox, il y a 3 ansEnables autoclearing cookies every 2 hours by default on install without alerting the user about it. Cookies that it clears include Google, Reddit, Trello, etc session cookies, forcing you to immediately log out of all platforms.So you just installed the extension but didn't take a look at the settings at all? Point taken, the autodelete option will be off by default in new versions. We just released 2.8.0 where the default is "no periodical auto-delete". Apologies for the inconvenience.
- Noté 5 sur 5par Max, il y a 3 ansGood addon, but it was really unpleasant surprise that it deletes google, youtube, facebook etc. cookies each 2 hours by default. I spent hours trying to find the reason for my auto-logouts from many sites. I blamed adblocks, anti-tracers, containers...
I would suggest you'd better make default the option "do not delete unwanter cookies periodically".
