User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:49.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/49.0
Build ID: 20160524073714

Steps to reproduce:

Using nightly after May 25th, and a brand new profile

# Step 1

# Step 2
- Goto Preferences > Privacy
- Select "Use custom settings for history" option
- Uncheck "Accept cookies from sites"
- Visit

# Step 3
- Goto Preferences > Privacy
- Make sure "Accept cookies from sites" is NOT checked
- Click "Exceptions" button next to it
- Enter "" in the "Address of website" box
- Click "Allow" button and then "Save Changes" button
- Visit

Actual results:

# Step 1 shows message "Cookies are ENABLED in this browser"

# Step 2 shows message "Cookies are DISABLED in this browser"

# Step 3 shows message "Cookies are DISABLED in this browser"

Expected results:

# Step 1
Got expected result

# Step 2
Got expected result

# Step 3 should shown message "Cookies are ENABLED in this browser". It seems when a cookies are disabled for all sites except for few white-listed ones, cookies are still being blocked for white-listed sites as well.

Tracking this cookie regression for 49. In response to Alice's comment about a test in Comment 2, would it be possible for someone to write one?

Looks like this was fixed while 49 was on nightly, from comment 6.
