In Firebird 0.7, cookie acceptance criteria settings were independent of each other (i.e. any combination of "Enable Cookies From Originating Website Only", "For This Session Only", and "Ask Before Accepting" could be used). In Firefox 0.8, "Enable Cookies From Originating Website Only" is independent, but I must now choose between "Accept For This Session Only" and "Ask Before Accepting." I *ALWAYS* have both of these last two options enabled when browsing with Firebird. I now have to choose between expanding my cookie whitelist and blacklist on-the-fly and automatically modifying persistent cookies into session cookies. IMHO, this is a giant step backwards in user friendliness. Does anyone else think so? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
actually, current prompt dialogs give an explicit choice (Allow/Allow for Session/Block) with the ability to persist said settings. As a result, combining the prefs is useless now since the prompt explicitly controls how the cookie is accepted.
