Cannot delete cookies
I used to be able to delete cookies fine. Now when I go to "remove individual cookies" to see all of them I can't delete them. It seems that if I press "remove all cookies" they're gone, but when I click "remove individual cookies" again, there they are again. Also, if I try to delete a single cookie, it seems like it's deleted, but if I hold the "delete" button, the previously "deleted" cookie appears and disappears. And no matter what I do - individually delete them or not, when I click close and go back to see the cookies, nothing has changed.
Also, when I click "use custom settings for history" and only make exceptions for two sites NOT to set cookies, then click OK, then go back, I don't see "use custom settings for history", but "remember history".
The cookie-deleting problem is new, but the "custom settings" is older.
Thank you for your time. If I didn't make myself clear enough, feel free to ask me for more details.

That are most likely opt-out cookies added by the Beef Taco extension
Sets permanent opt-out cookies to stop behavioral advertising by 102 different advertising networks, including Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, all members of the Network Advertising Initiative, and many other companies.
Thanks a lot. I uninstalled the extension and the cookies are gone. Opt-out cookies are cookies that basically disallow certain sites to set more cookies, right? So those cookies (there were hundreds) couldn't've been all opt-out, since I used a lot of sites which definitely used cookies. Also, I never got the hang of Beef Taco. When I click "Options" on the Add-on list, I have to check if I want to see some toolbar. I never found out where to set the opt-out cookies.
Did you install Do Not Track+ ? This app works by setting hundreds of cookies that tell the cookie-recipient not to track this user. If you want to remove those "opt-out" cookies you have to disable DNT+. But if you enable DNT+ all those opt-out cookies will return. And yes, there are hundreds of them on the DNT+ list.
