Thanks. I may do that at some point, but I kinda liked the idea of using an extension by "one of our own" here in the Pale Moon world. (Even if for no other reason than I probably won't have to worry about PM compatibility, at least for a while)

Crush Those Cookies is written specifically for PM too: https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/crush-those-cookies/

When I installed Cookies Exterminator over Crush Those Cookies, my whitelist was not imported. I wonder it worked for you and not for me? :think:

So it looks like it's not support to import the whitelist from CTC. So I still wonder why it worked for you, dark_moon! :shifty:

I guess dark_moon meant "was imported from Self-Distructed Cookies" that was installed initially, before Crush Those Cookies :coffee:

Hello.
Unfortunately this add-on doesn't work for me.
I have no idea why, maybe some of you had a similar problem. All pages that are in the whitelist anyway have cookies removed, very strange.

1) Main browser settings

2) Settings of pages where I want to keep active logging.

Can anyone with this add-on work be able to show screen of their main settings? I would be grateful. Regards.

It seems that using these settings everything works. Thanks for this useful extension!

Doesn't seem strange, from your settings it appears you are asking Pale Moon to clear cookies every time it closes, regardless of what any extension does.

Coming late to the conversation, but I'm only just now looking for an alternative to my current cookie-crushing extension. Could you explain what a greylist is? I looked at the AMO description of both CE and SDC, and neither one actually defines it as opposed to whitelist.

CE auto-erases cookies and local storage objects as soon as they are no longer used by open browser tabs. Whitelist and greylist both protect from such cleaning, but all cookies and local storage objects from greylist are forcibly removed on each browser restart.

Very late, but I want to thank you very much for that very nice extension.
It's most valuable and works really nice, but I have a suggestion which is needed for users who are not really cookie/web-tech aware:
Implement a second timer for cookies from visited (opened by bookmark or URL etc.) sites.
Since CE determines it it's needed or not by "open" URLs, this information should already be available.

Advantage: Lazy users needn't bother with grey/whitelists.

Example:
Say I visit www.inter.net and get cookies from singleklick.net, inter.net and some more.
Now if I get redirected from www.inter.net to pay.3rdpartybank.net, I love to see cookies beeing deleted after 10 seconds which came from singleklick.net, but the ones which came from inter.net shouldn't be deleted before a much longer timeout lapses - say 10 minutes. So I can safely pay and return within 10 minutes without having to remember to switch to grey!

Thanks,

-Garry

Sorry, but I doubt that such logic can bring useful results.

Wow, I can't believe that you're making this extension even better! This is great!
