The engineers of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung web site http://faz.de (major German newspaper) seem not willing not to include me in their fabulous community thing, with their cookies.

Behold the accompanying screenshot of a Firefox set to whitelist cookie policy.

Oh I just don't like it.

Which cookie manager is that?

I use 'Cookie Monster' for iceweasel (packaged as xul-ext-cookie-monster) which sports a nifty toolbar-button with various options instead of asking for every cookie, less granularity but i can accept that.

Fixed it for you! Many sites can load far more cookies than that. You need to learn how to use noscript or other cookie software.
