Seems to loop through the list, rewriting the cookie file each time. With 100's of sites this can (and did) take several minutes at 100% CPU. Could this be a special case in the code and just write an empty file ? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. ensure you have some sites in the list 2. click "Remove All Sites" 3. sit and wait ... Actual Results: Browser takes a significant amount of time to return, using 100% CPU. eg with 100 sites in the list open() prefs file rewrite prefs files with remaining 99 close() file open() prefs file rewrite prefs files with remaining 98 close() file etc ... Expected Results: Just write an empty prefs file
I believe that has since been fixed...
