Description

15 years ago
This problem is an intersection of bug 109982 (which is currently "won't fix"),
and the newer fix in bug 209689 (for bug 161636). 

STEPS: use any file URL that writes javascript cookies, and you can find that
you can overwrite Cookie Manager "Cookie Sites" entries for schemes w/ a file
URL w/ the site's string as the hostname.

1- view about:
2- Select: "Tools | Cookie Manager | Block Cookies from this Site"
NOTE: the Cookie Sites tab entry says "scheme:about"
3- open a local file:
      file://scheme:about/
4- Select: "Tools | Cookie Manager | Allow Cookies from this Site"

OBSERVED:
The "scheme:about" entry will change as you use the cookie manager menu commands
from the file: URL.

EXPECTED:
I'm not sure that having mapping null hostname situations to scheme:SCHEME is a
good idea. I'm wondering what other people think.

FIXED, since the scheme: functionality was removed back in one of the ff3 betas.
