Is there any extenstion or way to block a specific recurring cookie?

more options

I am specifically looking for a way to block a single youtube cooking, VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE, from reappearing as a cookie. My reason is that it forces one into a group for experimental youtube features even if you didn't opt in, which no one ever has to my knowledge. I have deleted several times but every time I open youtube, even with it having been closed before deleting the cookie, it comes back. Is the a built in function to block SPECIFICALLY this cookie or an extension to do so.

As a side note I do NOT want to block all cookies due to the fact that, to my memory it will also remove all cookies already in my browsers cache.

Sorry, there is no built-in feature to block specific cookies by name or by domain. And I am not aware of an add-on which would do that type of blocking. But please loo fo an add-on with that type of feature. >> AMO search for "cookie" extensions
