get firefox to prompt whether or not to accept cookies

Hello,

I need to get Firefox 45 to prompt me whether or not to accept a cookie(s). I cannot find anywhere in Firefox to do that. I installed Cookie Monster but can't find anywhere in that add-on to get Firefox to prompt me.

Is there another add-on that might work? Or is there some secret way to get Firefox, itself, to prompt me?

Can anyone help?

TIA, RS

hi, the ask anytime option for cookies was removed in firefox 44, which was supposed to happen for a long time (bug 606655).

i would recommend the following setup instead: in the custom history options choose "keep until i close firefox" as a default option & set exceptions for the few sites where you want stay logged-in across sessions. this way you'll have less work to do over all and a privacy-minded setup after all.

or as an alternative you could also take a look at an extension like https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/self-destructing-cookies/
