    Cookies, identifying and cleaning.


    My main computer is fairly ancient as far as OS goes, 5 - 6 years since last clean Windows install. While HW have changed it started with W7, Sp1 to 8 to 8.1 and all TP and insider builds since day one of W10. As you can imagine great pile of cookies have accumulated, 90% of them from Firefox.
    I don't want to get rid of them all, just some pertaining to individual sites because they are a problem with FF. I tried reading each one but almost none of them have clear reference to what they pertain to.
    It's been bothering me for years, had a program/utility to see connection per site long time ago but have forgotten which one it was.

    Hi, Cookiespy maybe?

    I'm sure you know Ccleaner lets you specify which cookies to keep when cleaning. Aside: Some UK banks amazingly rely on cookies so that the device being used is 'recognised'. And if not, needs a phone call or you to have a registered mobile phone to resolve this! And Santander always displays a message claiming I don't allow them to set cookies.. yet I have site access, and no complaints from other banks.

    +1 Ccleaner. It gives the cookies in a readable fashion:

    Plus you can import and export to other machines.

    Ah, now I see it, I'm not a great fan of CCleaner so I never investigated further than elementary options which I use in a pinch only. I'm going to check that part now.
    CookieSpy seems to have disappeared from net.

    Like you Mike, I only clean my system when something is giving me problems, myself too.
    The idea that cookies and other things are saved in Windows(and Linux distros for that matter), is to SPEED-UP the system, and not slow it down, as many of these "system cleaner" developers want to lead us to believe(as you obviously know, but this is for other users that read this thread too.)

    Well, you see, I have an E-comerce site that stopped displaying right way, this one if you are interested KupujemProdajem | Preko milion oglasa when opening adds it doesn't display all data on it, like price and availability, just item picture. Displays just fine on IE and Edge so I figured it's cookie that somehow got confused and want to delete cookies only for that site.
    There's few other ones with problems but this one I use a lot as it deals with new and used stuff.

    This new Translate add-on for Edge is great.:

    Some parts on a page can not be translated(pics of course) or hard coded stuff, but the text gets it where it can(sometimes with funny results, (specially when translating German literally, and not the idiom).

    Always the best way to download if possible
