 Yes, I'm using the
Torbutton, with the default cookie settings (clear on
 toggle, etc.) The
google cookies are the only ones that require a manual
 click to clear. All
others are removed on closing and resetting Firefox.

 Are you referring to
the Google cookies that Torbutton uses to avoid having to fill in CAPTCHAs
every time you load a Google page? Those are the same across Torbutton
users, so they won't identify you.   

Now that you mention it, I haven't
seen that in a while. Nice feature, I wasn't aware of it.
