Some years ago I had learned somethings about cookies that I have since forgotten all about. At that time I set my browser up to ask me about every single cookie. I only have like 4 or 5 cookies that I allow. sites like this site I only allow session cookies and everything else I absolutely denied.
I also run a addon for Firefox called Better privacy and delete cookies from there many times through out the day also. Youtube is really really bad at loading your system up with macromedia cookies.
I know sitting there clicking deny all day long can be a real pain in the backside. But if you realized just how many cookies were set just from one site alone. I would think you would take the time to do this also. Just think how many you can get blocked that will never bother you again..
I also know it can be a pain in the backside when you decide you want to make a purchase at some site but you can't because you blocked their cookies. If your privacy is that important then it won't bother you going in and delete that denied cookie and allow session so you can now make a purchase, or just make a call. If it is not a site I will be frequenting I then go back in and deleted that session cookie and reset it denied.
I KNOW this is a pain. It really matters how much your privacy means to you on whether you will take the time needed to protect yourself as much as you possibly can.
I will continue to check this addon out more. Could it be one of my other addons that are blocking this? Could be. But what ever I got seems to be working fine
Every little bit helps
Thank you for telling me about Do Not Track Plus - Added to my arsenal.
