I don't understand what's the problems with cookies options.

To understand my POV I'll explain what's my experience.

I understood the problems with cookies since 2003/2004.
So in that time each time I used a browser I deleted all info in it.
Never had trouble navigating and I didn't refuse any thing (wasn't aware

In 2007 I began to use the firefox and I used the automated functions to
deleted what I did before manually.
I still accepted everything (still wasn't aware enough)

Now I just accept cookies but only for the website in use (no third
parties) and everything is still deleted.
I don't have trouble with ebay, since ebay save the basket on their
servers same thing with a lot of other services, amazon for example (if

Plus µblock origin, umatrix, https everywhere, and random agent spoofer.
I just have problems with some banks because some of them use 3rd party
cookies and it's obligatory (wtf).

Something that would be useful is a container for cookies (or more).
Each container opened can only have access to it's own container.

In "Nightly" they introduced "containers tabs" it's seems that these
container can do the functions that I have talked about but when I look at

The big problem of the actual container is that you can't make your own
personalised containers.

Also one function by default that could be good in icecat is to put the
"Portable document Format (PDF)" in the application menu in the
preferences, under the "always ask" action.

Good night.

The only fault I see in Cookie Monster is the lack of an "About" option
to see version & license.

Cookie Monster is oriented in the best way I believe: the 3rd party and
the domains&subdomains.
Cookies are not simply cookies: the bad ones are set from different
origins than user has asked to visit.

eBay, Amazon, AliExpress and maybe others should change their security
policies (security for visitor) and allow responsible users to use their

David, have you tried "Cookie Monster", or any other similar add-on?
This is my conclusion regarding cookie add-ons that I evaluated in

* I use Self-destructing cookies as recommended in the link mentioned in
the first post of this thread.
* Privacy Badger is useful to reject untrusted cookies, keep in mind
that this add-on still is in alpha stage.
* Cookie Monster (CM) rejects 3rd-party cookies by default so you have
to whitelist a lot of domains using CDN domains with CM. This applies to
all the big sites like eBay, Amazon, and AliExpress. This take to much
work for me as there are no editable whitelist like in Self-destructing
cookies. The developer of CM have a copy of this email though.
