The cookies manager dialog has no buttons to dismiss the dialog, at least on Mac OS X. You can dismiss the dialog using the 'esc' key on the keyboard but that might not be all too discoverable to less familiar users. We should really add a 'done' button to this dialog (or something similar). 

For reference, I checked Safari and they provide a 'done' button on a similar dialog.

To get to our cookies manager dialog, follow these steps:
1. Preferences
2. Privacy
3. Remove individual cookies
Severity: normal → S3

Historically the cookies popup didn't have a close button on macOS because (maybe) it was a standalone popup
dialog handled by the macOS titlebar and window decoration system independently.

Since this dialog is now (since 10 years) a modal dialog, it needs a close button as shown on Windows and Linux.
