Talk:Cookies

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

I "vote" to get rid of this page. Everything important in it is already covered in either Profile folder or Firefox : Tips : Import Cookies From IE to Firefox. That would make one less article that needs to be categorized, too. --Wintogreen 00:46, 3 Apr 2005 (PST)

I don't see a reason why this article is bad. (And I don't like the profile folder article much!)
This article can be extended to include more general information on cookies (what cookies mean for users / more about cookies permissions). We can add stub notice, if you like.
However if you are sure it would be better to redirect this article in profile folder, feel free to do so. --asqueella
Funny, I was just going to post here again to suggest that this article be extended to say something about whitelists and other basic cookie settings, but it seems you beat me to it. So, let's not redirect; hopefully someone will add more to the article in the future. --wintogreen

Is there a functionality to remove cookies and offline internet files, such as in IEs Internet Tools option?

removing cookies etc

You asked is their a function to remove cookies etc, similar to IE tools / options. I wondered the same thing as I've just downloaded 'Firefox' today. But found it under Tools/Options/Privacy/ Where it gives you the chance to clear them.

info for 2.0

Thanks, updated "Cookie permissions" section for Firefox 2.0. Alice Wyman 00:26, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Other types of cookies

This article doesn't mention using DOM storage for cookies, which is managed by the offline storage section in the network tab in advanced options. It also ignores the existence of flash cookies which are supposedly used by half of the top web sites.

I could either add a paragraph to the introduction briefly discussing the other types of cookies (mentioning the betterprivacy add-on as a way to disable them) or try to expand each of the existing sections to cover three types of cookies. I think a single paragraph would be less disruptive. Thoughts? Tanstaafl 22:26, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
