I have got quite a lot of valuable feedback since Firecookie 0.6 release and so, I have decided to create a fresh new version. Thanks to all who took their time and helped to improve this Firebug extension!
If you are interested, read more about all new features (with bunch of screen-shots attached) or read release notes and see what bugs have been actually fixed.
Cookies panel now supports activation, just like Console, Script and Net panels in Firebug. This is useful for those who don't need to have the panel activated all the time. Firecookie extension uses internal Firebug's activation APIs and so, the user interface for enabling/disabling Cookies panel is exactly the same as for the other panels.
Since there is still ongoing discussion about how to properly enable/disabled Firebug, I expect some improvements in this area yet. Anyway, the activation of Cookies panel will change automatically according to Firebug's internal implementation.
Panel activation is introduced in Firebug 1.2. Cookies panel remains the same in the previous versions.
Cookie Expire Time
Cookie expire time is now displayed using local timezone and current Firefox locale (requested a few times). It should be much easier to figure out the actual expire time now.
Both <xul:datepicker> and <xul:timepicker> are introduced in Firefox 3 so, the dialog remains the same in previous versions.
The UI now indicates whether a cookie is HTTP Only or not. Also the Edit Cookie dialog contains a new option that can be used to change the flag. Cookie clipboard support has been also updated.
Cookie Source URL
Another requested feature was to display URL of the source that created/modifed a cookie. So, this is now displayed as a tooltip for Cookie Event within Console tab. Just move the mouse cursor over the blue domain link displayed on the right side of the event.
Of course the Cookies->Options->Show logs in console option must be on.
The toolbar button for removing cookies has been renamed to Remove Cookies (there was some confusion with the previous name). The purpose of the button is: to remove cookies currently displayed in the list. Notice that the list can be filtered using:
- The Filter toolbar button
- The Firebug's search box (located on the right side of the FB tab bar).
And finally localization! Thanks to all who localized Firecookie!
