As we are here to recommend software, and OP explicitly asked for a Firefox extension, let me add to ᔕᖺᘎᕊ's answer: Using profiles as suggested by ᔕᖺᘎᕊ is a good start – but to always have to go via Firefox's profile manager is not really comfortable. To make switching between profiles easier, you might wish to take a look at the Proflist Firefox extension, ...

First, Ghostery is made by Ghostery Inc. an ad company. I'm sure their research is respectful but it is good to know about it at least. I would try Privacy Badger made by EFF. The way it works is that it checks the requests (mainly third party ones) made by the browser and builds a blocklist based on what it detects. The upside of this is that it changes ...

Instead of using a separate extension designed for this, just use Firefox's built-in solution of having separate user profiles. You can find more info on setting this up over here at Firefox's website. Basically, to set up, open the Run dialog (Win + R) and type firefox.exe -p (p for profile). Everything else should be fairly self-explanatory, but check ...

Using the profile manager like others have suggested, while practical, seems a bit overkill and may be a bit clumsy, as you would have to wait for profiles to switch constantly. (Or you could run multiple browsers simultaneously, but this would get pretty heavy and cumbersome very quickly.) There's an extension called Priv8, which allows you to run tabs in ...

I'd suggest using cookies-based approach, instead of browser-profile ones. Because cookie solutions: are faster and more convenient - switching profiles takes browser restart need less setup - no need to replicate more direct solution - profiles deal with cookie collections too, not using profiles unless explicitly needed has less layers of indirection it ...

beforehand: no, there is not! there can't and won't be any real equivalent for chrome(ium) until this 7 years old bug is solved... maybe google calls it internally a feature. :-( --> so if there is any extension for chromium based browsers which claims to be a replacement for Firefox+Self-Destructing Cookies and - to be more precise - therefore clears also ...

Ghostery is a browser extension which knows almost 2000 trackers. It allows you to whitelist individual websites, allows you to choose which trackers to allow or block (generally or per-website), and disables social media share buttons which can be re-enabled by clicking on them.

As of Firefox 57 AKA Firefox Quantum, installing the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension (developed by Mozilla) will allow you to use multiple accounts for Stack Exchange and other websites, with a different account per tab or window. Under the hood, it separates website storage into tab-specific Containers. Cookies downloaded by one Container ...

Short variant you could simply downgrade to Ghostery 5 (on the Ghostery Addon page scroll down to "Version information" (click on it), scroll further down and click on "See complete version history", scroll down until "Version 5.4.11", hover your mouse over it, and tapp the "Add to Firefox" button). Though it's a "restartless addon", you might have to ...

I still don't get it what your problem with Cookie AutoDelete is... and it seems nobody else does. Please simply read at least the short description and settings carefully: it deletes cookies which are not used by an open tab (after a definable time!) and you can whitelist other ones, you wish to keep forever. So, once again: enable the Automatic Cleaning ...

Microsoft Edge now has a TamperMonkey plugin. Tampermonkey supports a Wireshark cookie injector: Setup: use https://github.com/ihciah/cookieinjector/blob/master/CookieInjector.user.js or simply copy file content to a new script in tampermonkey. Usage: Use some filters like http.cookie in wireshark and right click on some packets, copy cookie as value ...
