When removing cookies from the Privacy -> Cookies -> View all Cookies dialog,
cookies seem to be removed. However, the option to forbid sites that set cookies
which I remove from doing so in the future does not seem to work. I checked in
the "Exceptions" dialog and found nothing for the sites with removed cookies.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Remove a cookie, check checkbox to forbid site from setting future cookies.
Check in exceptions for the appropriate rule. (It doesn't exist.)
Go back to the site that set the cookie (It'll be set again.)
Can you reproduce this with a current trunk build from:
<http://www.mozilla.org/releases/nightly.html>

I can not reproduce with the latest nightly build. It appears to be fixed there.

Matt, this will be fixed in Firefox 1.1

Sounds like an useful feature. Where is this checkbox in current versions of firefox?
