This isn't a regression compared to the windowed prefs, so this doesn't need to block shipping.

Hi,

The feature to navigate through cookies exceptions was deactivated in the same time as other windows, certificates, app, ... as you mentioned in bug 1116587.
And since two months months already ! Bug Status is still NEW ???

This is an obvious regression !!!

It is possible to understand from which release the bug was introduced, please? And ask the developer that made it to roll back the modifications ? !!

Best Regards,

As I noted in bug 1116587: I don't understand what issue you're talking about, but this isn't about "deactivating" anything. Please file a separate bug with detailed info about what issue you're seeing.

Please don't spam every bug in bugzilla you think might be related with identical comments.
