Description

As a follow up to 1353726 it would be nice to add the ability to move stores from one cookieStoreId to another.

The use case is a logged in user wants to keep their sessions to a website whilst moving into a different container or out of private browsing mode.


browser.browsingData.move(
  {cookieStoreId: "firefox-default"},
  {cookieStoreId: "firefox-container-1"},
  {cookies: true, history: true, formData: true, cache: true, ...}
);

This might become even more useful if first party isolation has the same cookieStoreId API.

As :andym mentioned this is a lot more contentious than the first proposal.
