Why does it let me erase only one cookie at a time, or all cookies at once, and not let me select multiple cookies that I want to delete?

Do you not realize that there are HUNDREDS of cookies in the Cookie Jar? I want to save SOME of them (banks, stores, Facebook, etc.) but get rid of the rest. Why have you made it so that I can't click & drag (or otherwise select) multiple cookies for deletion? You're going to make me delete them one at a time? What could possibly be the reasoning for such a decision? Or is it an oversight?

If you use the search bar to show a selection of cookies then you can Ctrl left-click individual cookies to select more that one and press the Shift + Delete key to remove the selected cookies.

Aye, Ctrl and Shift keys work as expected when browsing the cookie list. But I'll second the recommendation for Cookies Manager+, which has a wonderful Search feature for both cookies and cookie exception rules.

The last Firefox version that runs on Mac OS X 10.4 is Firefox 3.6.28.

Current Firefox versions require a Mac with an Intel processor and OS X 10.6 (Firefox 16 runs on Intel Mac OS X 10.5).

For an unofficial Firefox 17.0.7 ESR compatible version (TenFourFox) that runs on a PowerPC Mac with OS X 10.4.11 or OS X 10.5.8 you can look at:

Yes! It's works! Thanks! BUT.......the convention for key-naming creates a confusion for Apple users when talking to PC folks: on a Mac keyboard, there IS a key NAMED "control", and the "CTRL" key is usually referred to by users as the "Mac" key or "Apple" key. I KNOW Apple itself refers to the individual keys as the "CTRL" key and "Control" key, and that's been confusing for users from day 1.

Brilliant workaround, BTW!

I tried TenFourFox once. It re-skinned my browser, deleted my add-ons, and wouldn't uninstall so that I could once again use 3.6.28. Had to restore from a disk image to get back to normal. I seriously do not recommend TenFourFox for PPC.
