Love it. Easy. Highly recommended. Icon too small though.

• Open source. If you are not familiar with "open source", it means this app is more secure. Because its code is publicly available for review and contributions on GitHub at
• Attractive GNU General Public License version 3. This means the software code of this add-on app is owned and supported by a friendly not-for-profit community. Instead of a for-profit corporation. And more secure because its full code is publicly available for review.
• Easy to use. Using the button in the browser toolbar.
• Whitelist cookies. Very easy. Two clicks to whitelist a website.
• Frequent add-on updates
• “Active mode” allow you to optionally automatically delete cookies after a set delay

• When "Active move" is disabled, the toolbar icon design color is small and hard to see on large screens. It is a tiny dot inside a circle. It does work :) But it is just hard to see :( I contributed a suggestion with this ticket at

• The add-on preferences can not be open from the toolbar icon. I suggest to add this feature. Meanwhile the preferences are accessible at about:addons

• The handy “Active mode” allow you to optionally automatically delete cookies after a set delay. But the delay range from 1 second to 10 minutes. It would be useful to be able to set a longer. I suggest an unlimited delay?

• Not compatible with Firefox 57+. Due to challenges not yet resolved with Mozilla does not yet provide all the necessary APIs that could allow to migrate this add-on to WebExtensions.

• Add-on 2.9.2
• Firefox 52.8.0 (64-bit)
• Debian 8 Jessie 64-bit
• GNOME 3.14.1
