[Solved]Cookie management in Opera v40

  • I am new to using Opera on the PC (Win 7); I've installed version 40.0 and am unable to find any way to selectively whitelist cookies. I'd like specific cookies to be maintained (not deleted), without having to laboriously troll through a long list of cookies prior to deleting them. Am also unable to locate an extension that will do this for me.

    Am I simply missing something, or, is this not possible with Opera? If not, can anyone recommend an Opera extension that I can use for this?

    Thanks for any help / advice.

  • Have you checked Settings > Privacy and Security > Cookies?

    Maybe you can set it to block cookies and put the ones you want to white-list as a exception.

  • Thanks for the response - yes, I've checked, and the settings do allow blocking of cookies, with the possibility of creating an exceptions list. However, blocking all cookies except the ones I want to keep undeleted tends to hamstring browsing. Websites can be pretty insistent about wanting to place cookies and while I don't want to keep their cookies I would like to be able to browse the sites. As well, some of the sites that I log into need to place their cookie, but I don't want to keep the cookies from all of them (just a chosen few).

    No extensions that work like cookie culler (not available for opera, it seems)?

  • Is it for Chrome? If you use the 'Download Chrome Extension' from the Opera store it allows you to install Chrome extensions. This is, of course, not supported by Opera's developers and it may not work, but its worth a try.

  • Thank you! That's brilliant - I now have Vanilla installed, which (so far) appears to work well enough for my purposes.

    Thanks again. I really appreciate the help.
