Is anyone one unhappy with the fact that we can't block individual cookies anymore. In privacy it only takes HTTP or HTTPS now. I have always been able to block individual cookies like, bing.com, google.com, alawar.com and can't do that anymore.

I'm not sure what you mean. Try restoring the old preferences dialog box and see if that helps. Screenshot id from Cyberfox but it should be the same in Firefox.

In FF Address Bar type about:config then press Enter. Accept the warning.

In the search box type brrowser.preferences.incontent

EDIT: Should be browser.preferences.incontent

Press Enter. Set value to false. Exit Firefox and restart.

Set Tools > Options > Privacy as shown.

browser.preferences.incontent is not listed.

The boxes you posted are what I use. You can see my photo that there are only HTTPs. It will not take google.com or any other with just .com like it used to. IE does still accept it.

@ Emmar

I see your point. I just installed the latest Firefox and it does not have that preference. Additionally when I set it to block cookies from google as a test - it did not actually block them.

You might want to try these addons:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ookie-monster/

Tested Cookie Monster and it works. Can block cookies set by http and https domains.

I've also been using self destucting cookies for more than one year. You can whitelist cookies on a per site basis if needed.

"Tested Cookie Monster and it works. Can block cookies set by http and https domains."

The way I understand that statement is the cookie monster blocks the same way it's done now. It has to be the http and https. I tried a couple of adons, but really didn't understand them. I use ghostery and when reading about the update it said it blocks cookies of http and https, but when it popped up it did show it without them.

I think cookies helps someone out there make money and FF is cooperating with them and making money.

I stuck with FF V 28 for a long time, but my adons that block cookies don't work anymore.

Electrolisys works better in this version, wooohoo!
Yes, I know is not enabled by default, but enabling it and testing worths the time.
