I used IE for a while before changing to Mozilla, and when using programs like Spyware Blaster that blacklists many cookies for IE the list had grown huge. I decided to go ahead and manually import them, and that had taken an incredibly long time as you may imagine. Just like you can import address books and bookmarks, I figure some people will want to import the cookies from other browsers as well. For IE in windows 98 (not sure if it is the same in other MS OS's, but I imagine it is), the list is stored in the registry at the following location and as you can see if you look at it, it is very easy to decipher. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\P3P\History It should be able to import from many browsers like IE, Netscape, different Mozilla/Firebird profiles, Opera, and any other semi-popular browser.

is this covered by patch for bug 185689 ?
It doesn't look like it is covered in that bug to me for two reaosns: 1) It only deals with Internet Explorer, and I want this to happen with all major browsers 2) It doesn't handle the cookie whitelist/blacklist, and that is the entire point of this bug
Migration should be an embeddor responsibility, and implementing a global migrator in the backend is a bad idea, especially on a piecemeal basis (i.e. per-module). Seamonkey won't have a migrator, and Firefox already does this, so its not needed anyway.
