Re: Gmail anomaly

I agree - the default cookie manager leaves much to be desired. I've
found a very useful extension called "CookieCuller" that handles them
much better, allowing you to save or clear cookies with a single
click. Plus, you can view the information contained in the cookie
without having to do anything special. It's so simple, yet so powerful
when used properly. I haven't had any more problems with FireFox and
cookies after I started using it (back with FireFox 0.9.x)

Check it out here:

HTH. It certainly did the trick for me.

Yep, something is awry with Firefox's cookie management.  it pisses me
off.  I disconnect from a site (close the browser), but the next time
I open FF,  all my cookies are acting as if they are still live.

The Maxthon add-on for IE does the same thing

Its annoying as hell when you are testing web apps.

This is not a security risk but a weirdness worth noting. I reported
it as a bug to gmail but im not sure if its a bug on their part it may
be firefox not doing something right.

If you open  two gmail accounts in two different firebird/fox browsers
the first account logged into after a refresh becomes the second
acccount. Or if you send an e-mail with the second account, it may
send as the first and refresh back as account1.

So if you login with GmailAccount1 and then open another browser and
log into GA2, go back to GA1 browser and hit refresh, GA1 will be in
the mailbox of GA2.

This obviously is not a security risk because the mailbox was already
logged into, but I still thought it was a weird thing to do. It doesnt
act that way with internet exploder though so it must be something
with Firefox ...
