Cookie Manager Main Window

The cookie manager lets you view the websites that can store cookies on your computer and block those that you wish to. There are a number of buttons along the top of the manager that give you control of the manager. Apart from the Session button, these buttons are the same for all managers and will be described below.

When you open this manager, the text bar along the top will be pre-filled with the domain of the site that you were on when you opened the manager, but you can change it to any other domain.

In all managers of the Content Blocker, you can select multiple items by holding down the Ctrl key and left-clicking.

Block the selected site(s) from setting cookies
Allow all cookies from the selected site(s)
Allow cookies from th selected site(s) to be stored as session cookies only (ie they will be deleted when the browser is closed, and not persist across sessions).

This button is always disabled for the cookie manager and does not do anything.
