Here is my test. 1. I downloaded the daily build today (6/17) 2. I deleted my .mozilla directory 3. Started Chimera 4. Set my "privacy prefs" to be "Accept all cookies" and "Ask me before storing a cookie" 5. Visited www.slashdot.org (no cookie questions asked) 6. Logged in to slashdot (no cookie questions asked) 7. Quit Chimera 8. Looked at my cookies.txt file in my .mozilla directory, and there were two cookies stored. So Chimera is obviously not asking me pror to storing those cookies.
pink--can I have this one? :-)

Verified using 06-21 build on OS 10.1.5. Test steps: 1. Went to Privacy preferences panel. 2. Selected "Enable all cookies", and checked "Ask me before storing a cookie." 3. Clicked "Clear stored cookies". (although it didn't look like it did anything) 4. Closed prefs panel. 5. Quit chimera. 6. Relaunched chimera. 7. Went to the bugzilla site and submitted a query on the query page. 8. Dialog box popped up, saying "PermissiontoSetACookie". Beneath it is a checkbox for "Remember This Decision". Beneath that are "No" and "Yes" buttons. 9. Clicked "No" in the dialog box. Expected result: dialog box disappears and I get my query results. Actual result: Identical box reappear. I clicked "No" again for the second time and the dialog box reappeared yet again. I clicked "No" for the third time. The query results page loaded properly. 10. Hit "Back" and submitted another query. 11. Clicked "Yes" in the dialog box without checking the "Remember This Decision" checkbox. Expected result: dialog box disappears and I get my query results. The next time I perform a query again, it should ask me if I want to set a cookie again. Actual results: I have to click the "Yes" button three times to get pass this dialog box and get to my query results page. By the way, the dialog box that popped up said "PermissiontoModifyCookie", and not "PermissiontoSetACookie". My last comment is: Did we intend to say "PermissiontoSetACookie?" and "PermissiontoModifyCookie?" in the dialog box? It doesn't seem very user-friendly to me. Pink/brade: Not sure if these test results are what you intended. Leaving as Resolved Fixed for your commenting.
Winnie--without knowing the specifics of the web page (how many cookies are they trying to set, etc?) I can't speak to specifics on expected behavior. You should probably confirm behavior against mozilla1.0 or 1.1a. I do see that I am prompted for 6 cookies (set or modify) with NS7.0PR1 when I go to Amazon.com (regardless if I click Yes or No). The dialogs might be "permission to set" or "permission to modify" depending on what the site wants (and if the cookie is already there). By the way, it's a known issue that the strings you see in the dialog are NOT the correct strings we should be displaying. I will file a new bug on that particular issue.
the strings should be fixed today, we found a workaround and filed some more bugs. i can't imagine that we're doing anything different that moz wrt cookie handling, i mean, all we're doing is showing the dialogs that the cookie service wants.
verified 2002-07-01-05 - a dialog asking permission before setting cookies is now popping up
