    Hi Friends,

    I have noticed that when i go to clear my cookies (on a reg.basis), THAT "Google Cookie" is always there.

    Huh....Wat da Flock?

    How are they able to place a cookie in my browser (using FIREFOX) without me doing a google search or using anything to do with Google ?


    • Anyone Know the Answer?
    • How do i shake these guys....(*as well as the other cookies that i always see) ?


    Thanks Man!

    Have you tried running Incognito in chrome? If you want to change it in the actual setting go type in "about:config" in the URL bar to get to the main browser settings. Be careful though, because you can mess a lot of stuff up there!

    It's a flash cookie that you need to clear manually. Google .sol cookies and you'll find out how, it's not hard.

    Just do it in the firefox about:config then. It should be good. Just something for your to think about...the way I understand it is that the Chrome browser is run by a different division of Google(the open source division) It shouldn't be a problem for your security I don't think. Just my opinion...

    Ok...tried it out (but only used the LSO Option).

    I went into FF and still see the cookies there (sigh).

    Help me out...what's the scoop with the FF browser and cookies. I'm using 33.1

    thanks Buds !

    Ok, this is what I would try. I would clear my current cookies here.
    first.png
    Then I would go into the about:config and disable flash(How are they going to store a flash cookie if its disabled?)
    Then I would go and block Google from storing cookies(since flash is blocked they should only be able to save the normal kind of cookies)
    coo.png This should work. If it don't hopefully someone else will have some ideas! :)

    You can also use CCleaner to clear out cookies in one click.

    I actually use a different browser for searching on google and another browser for gmail. :/ lol.

    I've disabled my Flash plugin and have it in Ask To Activate mode. A great way of staying protected and telling Flash cookies to f@#k off. Sure you can block them completely but that's not what I want to do. I've only recently realized how many non video websites actually use Flash for one thing or the other that you would normally not expect to see.

    I'm not sure what you did, but what I'm talking about has nothing to do with Firefox. You need to go here: C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects and here: C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys and empty both of those folders. Close Firefox before doing this, and then reopen it afterwards.

    Edit: It appears to be putting a space between the F and the L in "Flash Player" in the file path there, I'm not doing that on purpose. It looks normal in the text box so I'm not sure what's up with that, but just remove it.

    And since we're talking about Flash cookies and stuff in here, I would like to use this moment to voice my opinion and let you guys know that Flash sucks. I hope someone comes up with something better that will completely replace Flash because I don't see them making it any better any time soon. I've come to realize that Flash is the #1 reason why Firefox crashes / becomes slow.

    Unfortunately Flash is still a major player and it will be hard to get rid of it, but that's an interesting mission, will definitely look further into it.

    I'm not too sure about HTML5 though.
