Allowing Cookies by Site

You may find that you'd rather manage cookies by web site.  In other words, there are many sites that you trust and use on a regular basis.   Mozilla's Cookie Manager lets you add and remove these sites on a case by case basis in precisely the same way you've learned to manage popup windows above.

  1. From the main Cookies Menu, select Cookie Manager.

  2. Select the tab at top labeled Cookie Sites.

  1. A list of sites that have placed cookies on your computer will appear at left.

  2. To add a web site to the list of sites you will allow to store cookies, type the web address of the site in the top left field of the form.  Now click on Allow.  The site will now appear on your master list.

  3. To remove a site from the list, scroll down the list, and select the one you'd like to delete.  Now select the Remove button.  Select Close at bottom to apply your settings and return to the main Cookies menu.

Manage Cookies on the Fly

You can also manage cookies while you're surfing. Make quick decisions without the hassle of menus and file management by using the following shortcut.

  • Open the Tools Menu at top, then select Cookie Manager.
  • When the drop-down menu appears, you may choose to Block or Allow Cookies for the current site.

  • For more options, choose Manage Stored Cookies. This will direct you right to the Cookie Manager we've seen above.
