Everything google is blocked in Cookies>Permissions, in order to prevent google tracking from search. Even after being removed, a single cookie, whatever it is, reappears even with a non-javascript google search (JS disabled in search from uBlock Origin.) Looking in Storage Inspector doesn't provide much useful information about the content of this cookie. Running Cookie AutoDelete, but would still like to find a way to block this one cookie.

Update: found the following in Storage Inspector after all

In Cookies>Permissions, have entered http://google.com and https://google.com. Doesn't seem to be any way to enter either as a wildcard. Don't understand why this one is getting through.

Have discovered that this is expected behavior when using Cookie AutoDelete. Needs to set Cookie with value "CookieAutoDeleteBrowsingDataCleanup." With CAD disabled, no google cookies.
