    Default FF 3.6 and Google Advertising Cookie Opt Out

    The latest version of Firefox (3.6) isn't compatible with the Google Advertising Cookie Opt-Out so I haven't upgraded yet.

    If I upgrade FF, is there any other way to deal with this please?

    Thanks

    Steph

    Hi Steph,

    See if this link is what you're looking for.
    Google Advertising Cookie Opt-out Plugin

    The plugin lets you keep your opt-out status for this browser even when you clear all cookies.
    I have it downloaded on my FF 3.6, and it works for me.

    Happy Valentines Days!

    Hi Donna, thanks for your reply.

    Looks as if I was a bit quick off the mark with that query as I didn't check the latest position before posting.

    I've had the Opt Out installed for ages but the last time I checked a few days ago it wasn't compatible with the update to FF 3.6 so I didn't update. Looks like they fixed that now as it's just downloaded OK and there was an update to the opt out available too. All working fine now.
