Firefox allows to block all cookies on a site-by-site level. This is ok for the most part. However, it does not help with blocking only Google Analytics cookies. The GA cookie names start with
Is there a Firefox add-on which can block all
I know there are many cookie related add-ons for Firefox - but apparently all of them simply fine tune cookie site-by-site blocking, according to their descriptions. Hopefully I missed the one who can do this... I also know about Google's plugin to opt out of analytics. Installing a specific plug-in for that purpose (as opposed to an add-on) seems a bit overdone. Plus, I would have to trust Google with that and that is exactly what I don't.
Edit. Comments about things which have been suggested:
- Adblock plus: Fanboy's tracking list did not block new
__utmaetc. cookies, e.g. from vkistudios.com. It may work on many other sites (did not check).
I'll try again with the CustomizeGoogle add-on as was also suggested. I did uninstall it before because I suspected it might reload search result pages in an endless loop sometimes (a thing I noticed occasionally, and at some point Google even blocked me because of it). The add-on is not available for the current version of Firefox (and the last update is 2 years old).
I'd still prefer cookie blocking by name.
