At the moment if you get Firefox to ask what to do with cookies on a case by case basis you get four options: ........Show details ........Allow ........Allow for session ........Deny ........Use my choice for all coookies on from this site I think it would be extemely useful to have an option for: "Deny for session" This is because some URLs set lots of cookies or keep on triggering the ask function masssive numbers of times. The only way currently to stop this is to deny the setting of cookies permanently. But you might not want to do that if after some browsing you need to accept cookies, for example, to allow passwords to be recorded or to enable financial transactions etc. In addition I think there should be a toobar button/menu option for modifying the current remembered cookie setting for the current particular URL. This avoids the considerable inconvenience of making these changes through the cookie management option "Deny" could be changed to: ........Ask ........Ask for session ........Allow ........Allow for session "Deny for session" could be changed to: ........Deny ........Ask ........Ask for session ........Allow ........Allow for session "Allow" could be changed to: ........Ask ........Ask for session ........Deny ........Deny for session "Allow for session" could be changed to: ........Ask ........Ask for session ........Deny ........Deny for session The dialogue box for this should indicate what the current status is for coookie management so you can be sure what you are changing from.

You're talking about something that involves changing what some of the text really means. Allow for Session isn't for the site, unless you make it that way. It allows that _cookie_ to be set but with an expiry at the end of the session. Deny for Session would not be any different from Deny, unless we change the meaning of Allow for Session, which we're not going to do. Since that's the gist of this bug, marking WONTFIX, since the backend does not and probably will not support something like this. The site-specific settings UI should be in 1.8, but it will be more than just cookies.
