Description

If you change your cookie pref to manage cookies by privacy levels, the cookie
icon behavior does not take effect until you open a new window or restart the
browser.

The change in prefs should impact the currently open windows immediately.

Steps to reproduce:

1. In a P3P enabled build, set prefs to accept all cookies
2. Exit and restart browser
3. Set prefs to flag all cookies (manage cookies by privacy levels)
4. Visit a site which should set off the P3P icon (e.g., http://nytimes.com)
5. Note that icon does not appear
6. Exit and restart browser
7. Visit a site which should set off the P3P icon (e.g., http://nytimes.com)
8. Note that icon appears now

Expected behavior: icon should have appeared in step 5, but instead only appears
after a restart.
