Firefox has the function of deleting cookies when closing the browser. It also has exceptions to not delete cookies from frequently visited websites.
Today, to add exceptions, you have to go to the settings every time, which is quite annoying.
My proposal is to add a button that will add or remove the website on which the current user is to the exceptions.
The button could be where the extension icons are and the icon would display whether the web page is in exception or not. Extensions work the same way, but the function in firefox works better and always deletes all cookies.

This is what it looks like in extensions:

I like this idea, and I would like to suggest something similar:


I typically check to see under which domain cookies are identified and then add it to the list of exceptions. A button to add an exception for selected site data would be very convenient.

Having spent some time removing all the cookies I didn't want and keeping the ones I wanted to keep, I looked at the "Manage Exceptions" feature of the feature for deleting cookies and site data upon exit, hoping to see a button that said "add current cookie set to exception list" but that feature isn't there yet.  Could a button be added to "Manage [delete cookies on exit] Exceptions" that would load up the exception list with the current cookie set?

I would love a quick way to add cookies (and related site cookies such as SSO sites) to the exception list

Good idea to have a fast lane. Currently it seems it´s not allowed to use wildcards in the exceptions list. Is that true? As an example I need it for SAP support page and here it would be a nightmare to put in every page/site manually without wildcards.
