Thanks for the SHIFT- click info, Paul; but it's insufficient. Like
many people, I build up hundreds of cookies, so when I delete there

raised up into the window. Therefore I was only able to delete about
25 cookies at a time. This becomes tiresome when one has about 2-300
In the applications which have it, sweep-highlighting continually
brings more items into a window when one reaches the bottom.
Therefore one can highlight as many consecutive items as desired. Is

already present in so many other applications.

Number 2: I can't imagine why you would ever want 300 cookies; the best
cure for that, as someone else already said in this thread, is
prevention. I myself accept only session cookies, and those only if they
(and Mozilla before it), all cookies are purged. If a site wants to set
another cookie when I return, fine.
The Cookie Manager allows you to set certain sites as "always allow" or
"always block" with respect to cookies, and I use that to tweak my
For the mechanics of deleting all but a few, I probably would click the
first, scroll to the end and SHIFT-click the last, and then CTRL-click
to deselect the few I wanted to keep. But it will be almost as good --
and probably easier -- to just delete them all and let your favorite
sites set fresh cookies the next time you visit.
