Oh, good grief! How many times do I have to enter this information?! 1. I want to manage blocked cookies via a "blacklist", rather than a whitelist. Also, I want to select cookies to block from a current list, instead of having to memorize them and type them in manually. 2. I have "strict" tracking protection enabled, yet I get permanent cookies installed from websites I do not visit or interact with. For instance, if I open a new site web page, and that page has a Youtube video, even though it doesn't play (because I have autoplay blocked), yet the page adds a permanent Youtube cookie to my computer, that gets updated (and often multiplies), whenever I start my browser. Please provide a means to prevent this!

<sigh> Apparently, the folks "responding" to these requests & suggestions don't actually read them first. Oh, well.

  1. You can install an addon to do that.
  2. Cookies are not very hostile these days. You don't have to clear it every day. Please read Firefox rolls out Total Cookie Protection by default

As to 1, you can do that with Manage Exceptions on Settings > Privacy & Security > Cookies and site data. The attached screenshot shows the top of the dialogue you get.
