    Thanks Ronjor,

    good info. i had the same problem with Cookie Crusher and didn't know why. It crashed my system and I uninstalled it. Look's like a nice utility but couldn't get it to work with FF.

    Since we're on the subject of cookies, is it necessary to have a program like CC when you are using FF. I don't know the program at all, but it looked very powerful as to controling the cookie issue. The reason I ask specifically with FF, is their way sufficient to handle cookies? Or do we still need a stand a lone product?

    I will appreciate your advice.

    Thanks,
    Rilla927

    In my opinion, no. Firefox does a great job with cookies.
    I have Cookiepal, which I have used for years, and it is inactive.

    Cookie Crusher has still prompted me several times to allow or reject cookies from Firefox from I am assuming tracking sites. I did notice that cookie crusher does take up some resources as I seen it very high in the top 30 MB's.

    Thanks Ronjor for your response. I guess I won't have to install Adaware SE Pro! I'm just learning FF and I'm really pleased with it.

    Thanks guy's for the additional response's.
