Cookies #13

Been curious for a long time about this. CCleaner cleans cookies, but
when I look in Options, some cookies are still there. The cookies are
important ones I don't mind keeping and also show up in CCleaner.

Not sure what exactly you are curious about but to clear cookies, you 
don't need any third-party tools because FF has its own.  See this picture:

He uses CCleaner to do it as CCleaner will clean but allows you to 
whitelist certain cookies to leave them.   FF itself just wipes all of 
them, no favorable in some cases.

How do you know which ones to whitelist using CCleaner, as opposed to 
going to Options/Preferences > Privacy > Show Cookies and not removing 
them there. Also, have Firefox set to not delete cookies on shutdown.

I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you asking why ccleaner doesn't 
remove all Firefox cookies? If so, that sounds like a ccleaner question, 
not a Firefox question. Maybe there's an answer at

I guess just common sense to start with.   My bank I might let them set 
a cookie.  Some stores I frequent that I do a lot of ordering might be 
nice to let them track me with cookies.
I do know a few sites that if I delete their cookies I've had things 
missing on the next return.   It's these that I miss and have issues 
with that I turn around and immediately add to CC.

Other than common sense, it's really a stab in the dark or good 
detective work.
