Is there an easy way to control cookies for specific sites?
With the new and "improved" quantum version of firefox, several of my add-on no longer work, most notably Cookie Controller. Is there anything like that where I can quickly add a website to my whitelist of acceptable cookies with a quick click or two? The method of going to the options page, then privacy and security and manually adding a web sites address is tiresome. I've checked out Cookie Manager and find it completely non-intuitive and difficult to use. Or maybe the developer of Cookie Controller can get it to work in quantum (though his web site seems to indicate the APIs that he needs aren't there).

If you are viewing the page you want to control, yes, using the Permissions panel of the Page Info dialog.
You can call that up using any of these:
- right-click a blank area of the page and choose View Page Info > Permissions
- (menu bar) Tools menu > Page Info > Permissions
- click the padlock or "i" icon to the left of the site address, then the ">" icon, then More Information > Permissions
Scroll down to "Set Cookies" and uncheck the "Use default" box, and then select the permission you prefer:
- Allow = allow persistent and session cookies
- Allow for Session = allow session cookies only
- Block = don't set cookies
Well, there you go! I had clicked on the "i" icon and the padlock, but had tried all sorts of clicking on the permissions box, as well as the ">", but didn't think of going down to the "more information" section. Not exactly intuitive. Also didn't know about the Tools->Page Info option, and it didn't come up in any of my searches. Would be a lot easier to find if it simply had a cookie with a slash (or not) through it with right-click options, but now I know. Thanks much!
