I am looking for a decent cookie management extension. When I say the best, as long as it can do the following I will be happy:

1: Prompt me if I want to save a cookie with site management

2: Ability to lock a cookie, so when I clear cookies it does not get deleted.

CookieCuller comes highly recommended, but I'm not sure it works with DPa2.

CookieCuller works with any build of Firefox as long as you make sure that MaxVersion in the install.rdf is set to the appropriate version for the build you want to use it with.

CookieCuller 1.2.0

One thing to remember: CookieCuller works but does not protect cookies from manual delete under Options/Privacy. That is if you "sanitize" 'em, they'll all be gone, including protected. Read FAQ.

Thanks guys seems to work well, however its site by site management is not the best. Any other suggestions?

In addition to CookieCuller, I've added Permit Cookie.

Permit cookies is killer!

Just make sure you disable all cookies in TOOLS>OPTIONS>PRIVACY. Permit cookie extension will take care of the rest.

get it here

Just found out about this one. Anyone want to try it and let us know if it is better/worse/same as Permit Cookies?

cookiebutton extension page
or
cookietoggle extension

I think they are mostly the same. I guess size, speed, accuracy, and consistency of service are the defining features that separate them. Test drive anyone?

i tried cookie status button and tho i like its icons very much, it doesnt remove "www." from the address when changing permissions.
as for cookietoggle, it seems quite outdated
