    is a widely referred to article about the "new cookies"



    You can do this http://www.macromedia.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=52697ee8

    or you can install a firefox extension that allows you to selectively clear entries

    Isn't this sort of like locking the barn door after the horse escapes?

    A worthwhile program would block the cookies before they ever get on your computer.

    Otherwise, just don't install Flash. I don't have it installed.

    Future versions will add a blacklist and other options available for ordinary cookies. For now just enjoy being able to selectively clear entries.

    Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. :)
