Firefox Tracking Flags

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:34.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/34.0
Build ID: 20141127111021

Steps to reproduce:

I created a test page to examine the behaviour of popsci.com articles. They store the scroll position in a cookie. 
So visit http://users.itk.ppke.hu/~fenta/vajon/cookie.html
Scroll up and down, and watch the counter. 

Actual results:

After 77 scroll events (bound to set cookie), no more "Confirm setting cookie" window opens. After about 130-140 scroll events, all firefox windows disappear, but the process is running. If I run it from console, it doesn't let me know what had happened.

Expected results:

I expected that firefox will handle infinite "Confirm setting cookie" windows or at least infinite set cookie events. I think this would be fair for people caring cookies, since websites tend to use more and more cookies.

I set the following in Preferences:
Privacy -> History: Use custom settings for history -> Accept cookies from sites: yes -> Keep until: Ask me every time
(This setting is good for web developers)

Didn't we remove the "Confirm setting cookie" feature?
