(In reply to Honza Bambas (:mayhemer) from comment #2) > I'm not a cookie person, sorry. I'm a cookie, so maybe I can help. * network.cookie.lifetime.enabled was migrated all the way back in 2004. Bug 233339 https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Cookies_Preferences https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-release/source/extensions/cookie/nsCookiePermission.cpp#49 * network.cookie.lifetime.days Bug 1457170 plans its removal from about:config, where it still exists and supposedly still works. Bug 232744 is a previous failed attempt at removal. Bug 1231319 requests it be added back to the UI. "only used if network.cookie.lifetimePolicy is set to 3 Sets the number of days that the lifetime of cookies should be limited to." https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Cookies_Preferences$revision/38525 https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-release/source/modules/libpref/init/all.js#2346 :jduell hasn't responded in 4 months. :mconnor, anything to add?
