    I have 42 extensions, but I use none of those and I don't find many of those useful.

    I've got 12 extensions of which 1 is disabled. Stylish is the only one of the 13 (best) recommended extensions I have.

    No Flashblock? It's really nonsense. :doubt:

    Not a single one that I use, I'm afraid.

    I only use two, NoScript and Adblock Edge. In Sandboxie is probably all I need.

    AdBlockPlus should probably get a honorable mention.

    You have a very strange and unnecessary desire to spend a lot of posts trashing ABP, Pinga. Regarding the relevant topic, I wouldn't consider the listed extensions in that article as the best. In fact, Bluhell I found to be very lacking.

    Your words, not mine - your comments are out of line for this thread.

    I really don't see that list as the "Best" of 2013. I use a large number of extension (90 installed, of which 10 are disabled) and I use only one from that list, Stylish. I have been looking at Self-Destructing Cookies as a possibility, but currently not installed.

    I've installed "Self-Destructing Cookies" and "Disconnect" and noticed that
    some of the cookies are destructed, but some - not.

    "Self-destructing Cookies" did not destruct cookies from
    yahoo.com, analytics.yahoo.com, google.com,
    or even huffingtonpost.com, malwaretips.com, giveaway.glarysoft.com, etc....

    I wonder why?

    Yes, and I don't consider something as best just because it's new. At least NoScript should be the eternally best Firefox addon because it's what makes Firefox to stay afloat till this date.

    BluHell firewall supposedly is superlight, with only five blocking rules compared to the tons of Easylist.

    The title is misleading, Stylish actually is from 2006:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/nl/firefox/addon/stylish/versions/?page=2
    The others seem to be quite new though.

    It's working fine for me. Keep in mind that it deletes cookies only after tabs are closed and with default settings, cookies need to be not in use for 10 seconds, so if another tab is still using analytics.yahoo.com for example, it will not be deleted.
    I don't know if SD cookies also looks at the FF cookie whitelist. Perhaps you have malwaretips.com etc whitelisted in FF or SD cookies?
