When trying to search for a given cookie in current active tab, we got no result, and couldn't figure out why.

Here are the steps to reproduce the bug:

1. We opened page for url: http://localhost:8080/nuxeo/view_documents.faces?conversationId=0NXMAIN` and now have a cookie named 'JSESSIONID'
2. We search for all cookies named 'JSESSIONID' with url 'http://localhost:8080/nuxeo/view_documents.faces?conversationId=0NXMAIN3' it returns undefined (!):

chrome.cookies.getAll({name: 'JSESSIONID', url: 'http://localhost:8080/nuxeo/view_documents.faces?conversationId=0NXMAIN3'}, function(cookies){cookies.forEach(console.log)});

We tested this behavior on other urls as well, it worked well. Then we noticed the port part of the url and tried this:

chrome.cookies.getAll({name: 'JSESSIONID', url: 'http://localhost/nuxeo/view_documents.faces?conversationId=0NXMAIN3'}, function(cookies){cookies.forEach(console.log)});

And it returned the cookie we wanted to find (in a list of one).

So it seems that the port component of the url is not used correctly to look for cookies.

We found that it works well in Firefox 57, but is broken starting from Firefox 58.

Are you sure that this works in Firefox 57?
I believe that bug 1398630 causes this issue (, and that first landed in Firefox 57

It does, actually. I reproduced the error in FF57.

Wait, it does or it doesn't work?

"reproduced the error" usually means "doesn't work".

Can you please confirm?

nit: "Found cookie using..." or something.  Also below.

Hm, I guess this makes more sense than the alternative. _Infelicitous_ indeed.

I meant the error does indeed occur in FF57... I reproduced the error in FF57.
