Setting cookie with domain which has the leading dot doesn't work.

var domain = "";
chrome.cookies.set({"url": url, "domain": domain, "path": "/", "name": "api_debug", "value": "1"});

It will be probably caused by readding antoher in (sorry, the link currently does not work, e500, the general

When I read the documentation I somehow assumed that all domains should be the opposite host-only, but it only says when "domain" is committed that cookie should become host only. "The domain of the cookie. If omitted, the cookie becomes a host-only cookie."

So I have to test Chrome again if it always adds a "." before domains. The two leading dots are definitely wrong.

I think it does, but it would be good to have the additional test either way.

Allow leading dot in domain in cookies.set

Yeah, that's true. Tom, once Kris lands his patch, can you check that the test passes without your ext-cookies.js change and then just land the test?

The error went away, but the result is wrong. It seems to create a hostOnly cookie now. If 'domain' is specified the result is never a hostOnly cookie. As far as I can tell you can only get such a cookie when omitting it.
You're right, I got that bit of logic wrong.

Comment that this will be a host only cookie.

I fixed the conflicts, and checked that your tests pass after that patch. Let me know if you want me to check it in.
Sure, whenever you want.
