    I am using windows 7 64 bit and Firefox 3.6.3 There doesn't seem to be an option for controlling cookies. In the Windows user profile only two cookies are there. Does Internet explorer override Firefox when it comes to storing cookies? I think that I am correct in saying that in windows XP you needed cookies stored in order for passwords to automatically log you in? I know that this might be a security issue but I like it when I click on a site that I use regularly - Flickr - and it logs me straight in. TIA

    Hi jascarlin,

    You manage your Firefox cookies by selecting Tools | Options | Privacy Tab and under History Firefox will: click the drop down list and select Use custom settings for history . To the right of the Accept cookies from sites selector, click the Exceptions button. From there you can enter sites to always allow cookies, never allow cookies, or allow session cookies, which will be deleted after your current browser session.

    Internet Explorer has nothing to do with Firefox cookies.

    Hope this helps.

    One option (the one I use) is the Firefox add-on "CookieSafe":

    You can use Ccleaner to manage all of your cookies. Great cleanup utility also.

    True story. A lot of CCleaner users don't realize that the program has an option to select which cookies to clean, and which ones to keep.
