I found a couple of annoyances with the cookie handling in the new options window so I developed this extension to fix them.

First thing it does is to add a button to the window displaying the cookies. When you select a site and click the button it will delete all cookies from the site and block the site from sending you cookies again. Yes you can do this by enabling the autoblock option, but I didn't want to do that.

Secondly, in the cookie exception list, if you want to change a site's settings you have to type it in again and click one of the buttons. This extension makes it so when you select a site in the list it automatically enters its name into the text box for you, unless you have been typing something in there in which case it does nothing.

Let me know what you think.

This sounds good and I will be trying it out, but I wanted to ask if it was possible for an extension to handle this (to me) bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=284315 ??

I'll take a look at that tomorrow. I suspect though that it will involve a bit more than anything I have done so far so it might have to wait till I have a free weekend.

I think that is what this extension is for...

Thanks, I guess they finally updated it to work with nightlys. It didn't at the time of my post.
