Default Cookie Manager

I'm using Firefox 40.0.3 and Win 8.1. I'm looking for a cookie manager like the old "Cookie Monster" that allows me to protect certain cookies and mass delete the others.

Cookie Monster wouldn't work and request for tech support bounces back.

I've just started using the Self-Destructing Cookies Add-on, and so far I'm liking it.
(Someone on here recommended it recently but for the life of me I can't find their post now to acknowledge them).

You can achieve this with CCleaner, by adding cookies to the "Keep" list in settings, but I don't know of an FF add on which does it.


I did spend quite some time searching for one a while ago, because I wanted to keep my settings in DuckDuckGo without having to sign in every time I used it. I had no luck though.

The best I could find was add ons which let you select and export cookies, and then import them after you've done a clean up/mass delete. Even that wasn't very satisfactory though as there's no option to automatically import the cookie file, so I had to open the add on and manually select the cookie file I wanted to import. Quicker to sign in to DuckDuckGo. : )

I did find one or two "cookie protect" add ons, but they didn't work for me. Running a clean up just deleted everything, protected or not. Cookie managers do allow you to set whitelists, but even then cookies are still wiped if you run an indiscriminate clean-up.

I think, the only way to do what you want is to rethink your approach to cookies and avoid "mass destruct". Do post back if you find anything good though.

Thanks for reminding me of CCleaner. It does just what I wanted.
