    Angel,
    Are you already familiar with the “Better Privacy” add on for Firefox? If not, you might also want to give it a look.
    In a single click it removes all of your flash cookies.

    Thanks. I’ve been using cookienator, which is helpful, but it leaves a few that I’d rather it didn’t and removes a couple that I’d prefer to keep.

    I keep a small EVERYTHING! window open on one of my monitors, and enter SOL for a filter.

    After a reverse sort on Type, I can watch .SOL flash cookies pop up as they are created. I can also delete them in EVERYTHING! as I wish.

    I also use Better Privacy; when I close Firefox I can watch deletion of the .SOL flash cookies in the EVERYTHING! window.

    The EVERYTHING! search program is great, it uses the MFT (Master File Table) and is easily many times faster than any Microsoft search.

    @1fastbullet – I have heard of it but not had an opportunity to try it out yet. I will definitely have to look at it though. ^__^
