Hello. I was watching glenn beck on his site gbtv on Safari over a secure connection. I also had tenfourfox 10.0.3 open and the gbtv site on Safari was depositing lso's on the lso manager in tenfourfox! Just wondering how that was happening? Regards, Dana

    I'm not sure what you mean by an LSO.

    What you're saying suggests that there is a common LSO directory, to my best knowledge these are flash cookies so that isn't shocking. As you seem to have discovered BetterPrivacy, I would encourage you to continue using that solution to manage LSO's.

    I figured it out. Tenfourfox's better privacy(under tools) finds all
    lso's(supercookies), even if stored by other apps such as safari.

    Yes, the BetterPrivacy add-on is very good for that kind of management. I'm glad it works for you. Please re-open if there is another question or issue related to this.
