That looks great. the download link on the prefbar website attempts to install a German? version. Is there a prefbar english version available.?

Got the prefbar. It looks simple, but it's not easy for me to setup.

For example, exactly - with examples - how would you add a "Cookies" button to the prefbar toolbar? I tried dragging and dropping, but got stumped by the last step.

Cookie Culler on the other hand was a breeze.

Really easy solution without addons.....

1. Accept first party cookies, and visit the sites.
2. Delete cookies you don't want, and set to session only.

Go ahead, close the browser, and visit the sites you kept the cookies for, they're still working. In some cases when your cookies expire you may have to repeat this process, but it works great for me. No whitelisting which usually doesn't work, just letting it save the cookies you want to save, and then setting cookies to session only.

There's really only one website I save the cookies for, and on top of that I have my flash cookies cleared every time also.

Good call, BZ. Tried it. That works fine and is indeed an easy solution.
