What is this "Cookie Delete" you speak of?

For what it's worth I've never been happy with the forum post editor.
I have it set to WYSIWYG and what I see is a far cry from what I get.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

Ken,

it is an Addon extension for Firefox, it can be trained to auto delete all extraneous cookies from sites you visit just once in a blue moon.

when we visit a new media site, CNN, FoxNews, others, they embed the webpage with so many pieces of trash that wants to track our keyboards, it just drives me nuts with how it makes the browser hang while their crap loads up...

I have a sluggish WiFi anyway, and throwing away bandwidth for crapola is detrimental to me enjoying what I want to see.

So, I started experimenting at how to get rid of it.... and installed the Addon called "Cookie Delete".

it works like a charm for what it is designed to do, but you have to Whitelist everything you needed saved.... when first booted up, it deleted the whole entire Cookie folder.... well, it was clean now, right

Then I started Whitelisting my forums and bank sites....
but, what I noticed immediately that rankled me badly was that it was messing with the forum's editor. which is not a superb one at all....

what it was doing was striping out all of the formatting characters totally, regardless of how I tried to format a post, it all ended up as one continuous runon sentence, and I am a control freak and that is simply not allowed...

so, I uninstalled it...


Then something else was bothering me.... I once signed onto one of the websites that looks to see if your Social Security Number, or other private details have been hacked and released into the wild...... that was started for me, by the hacking of Expedia which is a very bad thing.

I wanted to see if I was in danger of having my finance info exposed.... that led to me signing onto the website they recommended, and then when that finally teased me into saying that I was clean, but there are "other details" that I need to see, they asked for my Credit Card info and wanted to bill me $xy.00 dollars a month to watch my account info....

Smelled bad to me, and I canceled out.... but they attached something to my browser that kept pulling up nag screens that I had to get rid of, and that started the Cookie Monster search.

So, Cookie Delete fixed that, but, after the fact, I could have too by simply deleting all cookies period. I rarely do that, and it creates a mess for me.... but, I didn'[t know what method they were using to clobber my screens.

I have been using a LastPass subscription and rely on it for website login and not Cookies, or my memory for login info.

Once that was all handled, i decided to go back to an old favorite hacker defeater.

"NoScript" which disallows any link if you do not approve it in advance, or at the time it appears.

You can whitelist a web domain like our forum in one fell swoop, but if a link off forum occurs, that is blocked. sped up my browser a lot.

I found "Cookie AutoDelete" in the Addons.
The name alone scares the crap out of me.
