Yes, this could be the case, because each OS has its limits for notifications system, so there is no guarantee that all notifications from CE will be shown. Use the cleanup log to list all the events occurred.

I've noticed notifications intermittently not working too. For whatever it's worth, Crush Those Cookies behaves the same while SDC always displays notifications.

This is known issue on some linux distributions, see also my reply above.

I have added 2 screenshots of my settings, as i just discovered that crushthosecookies still is to be found allthough I removed this add-on long ago. could it be, that this causes cookiesexterminator to not work properly? if so, would you, JustOff, or someone else tell me how to get rid of these settings. I'm still on linux

You can right-click on each of the settings you want removed and select "Reset" which should remove them if the add-on has been removed (you would need to refresh about:config or close and reload about:config for the settings to not be displayed).

No, the settings of one extension do not affect the operation of the other.

I am looking at switching to Cookies Exterminator from Self-Destructing Cookies as it can also handle IndexedDB storage.

Questions:

  • What does the greylist do?
  • Is there a particular reason you do you not use the browser built-in exception list (as SDC does)?
Good-bye Firefox.

This has already been answered above.

Just because it gives more flexibility.

Thanks for the explanation. Another great extension!

It would be useful to add a description of the purpose of the greylist and redlist to the extension page.

I know my English is far from perfect, but I thought it's already stated quite clearly:
Right after installation Cookies Exterminator works in passive mode to allow the add the necessary domains to white or grey lists. They are intended for sites where you need to stay logged in as long as possible or until browser restart respectively, even without having any related open tabs.

It's perfectly good English; having re-read the description again, greylisting seems perfectly clear now. I think I just didn't get the idea of extermination at startup because I let the browser clear cookies at shutdown. My bad!

If I understand correctly what you are intending to say and if you don't mind my taking it upon myself to offer a suggestion :angel: -- Instead of "Right after installation Cookies Exterminator works in passive mode to allow to add the necessary domains to white or grey lists." I would perhaps word the sentence as such: "Right after installation Cookies Exterminator works in passive mode to allow the addition of necessary domains to the white or grey lists." (or something to that effect) -- that said, I'm not good at this myself and on top of that I might be misunderstanding your intention :eh:.
