    You never have to clear cookies if you set up Firefox the right way.

    I have my browsers set up to block all cookies including third-party cookies. Then in the exceptions panel I type in the sites where I have log in accounts. I pin the tabs that I want to open each time I start Firefox. In the Options Panel > General Tab I set Firefox to “Show my windows and tabs from last time”.

    This way I never have to clear cookies and I rarely have to click the log in button.

    I also use the Better Privacy addon to automatically protect the Flash Cookies at these log in sites and clear the rest.

    Now I can surf the web in peace and my spyware scanner rarely finds anything.

    I forgot to mention Opera and Safari for Windows are the only two browsers that don’t allow you to do that. I will not reinstall them until they do.

    People that want more security should consider using NOScript, Adblock Plus, and Adblock Plus Helper addons as well.
