1- Cookie:"__cfduid" - Function:?
This is for Cloudflare services. You can turn it off. It doesn't affect the site performance.
2- Cookie:"guest" - Function:?
You do not have to be a member to create a form in Jotform. You are also able to create a form as a guest user. However, guest users have more restrictions than free users. You can turn off this cookie as well if you don't create any forms as a guest user. It doesn't affect the performance of the site.
3- Cookie: "PHPSESSID" - Function:?
It isn't recommended to turn it off. If you turn it off, you will log out from your Jotform account.
4- Cookie: "theme" - Function:?
You can disable it. It's for the themes of my forms section.
5- Cookie: "UserRefer" - Function:?
Via this function, we keep logs of user references. For example, how do our users discover Jotform? Via a search tool etc... You can disable it as well.
Please let us know if you need further assistance.

There are some browser extensions for this purpose. However, unfortunately, I can not make a suggestion to you as I have not used any of them.
