Firefox and www.linuxquestions.org/removecookies.php


On http://www.linuxquestions.org/removecookies.php, the instructions for Firefox are "Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy tab -> remove individual cookies -> search for linuxquestions.org and click Remove All".

For Firefox 11.0 at least that should be "Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy tab -> Show Cookies -> select the linuxquestions.org folder and click Remove Cookies".

Looking at both Firefox 11 and 12 (on Ubuntu at the moment), the "individual cookies" instructions still appear to be valid. Out of curiosity, are you still finding it necessary to use that page? I'd have hoped to deprecate it by this point to be honest.

No "Remove individual cookies" on Firefox 11.0 on Slackware64 13.37. Help -> About Firefox only says 11.0. Check for Updates gets "Firefox is up to date".

I referenced the page because, since removing all cookies (was trying to book travel tickets and a logon was being persistent -- it didn't solve the problem), I have to logon to LQ every session and sometimes am logged out. Re-initialising the Firefox profile would probably solve it but that's non-trivial so I was hoping for a quick fix.

After a routine maintenance upgrade to Firefox 12.0, www.linuxquestions.org/removecookies.php is correct.
