I have had a few emails about the what to do with the “Google Cookie” issues been used in logs, so here is a quick tip.

Use firefox clear you cache :

To clear your cache for Mozilla Firefox:

  1. Open Firefox.
  2. Clear your browser’s cache.
    • For Firefox version 2.0:
      1. Click Tools > Options > Advanced.
      2. Click the Network tab.
      3. Click Clear Now under the Cache heading.
    • For Firefox version 1.5 or earlier:
      1. Click Tools > Options > Privacy.
      2. Click Cache > Clear.
  3. Click OK to exit.

Next step Clear you Cookies : also note this could also remove your saved settings for sites you’ve previously visited.

To clear your cookies for Mozilla Firefox:

  1. Click Tools > Options > Privacy.
  2. Delete your cookies.
    • For Firefox version 2.0, click Clear Now under the Private Data heading.
    • For Firefox version 1.5 or earlier, click Cookies > Clear.
  3. Click OK to exit.

Now we need to make sure that we delete cookies when we Close the Browser 1

Google Cookie

If you set tick all the the boxes like I have, you will delete the cookie when you close the browse, but if you really want to make sure, click on Exceptions and add something like :

Blocked Google Cookie

But be Warned, Google really wants that cookie on you system.. so while you can browse Google and see Google ads !! if you want to use Gmail, Google analytics’s or Google Adwords you will see this screen

Google Cookie Warning

So I would advise take the Cookie but delete it when you close the browser
