Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

The option "ask me every time" does not belong to the entry "Keep cookies" but
should be a configuration option under "Allow sites to set cookies".

I might want to be asked to store a cookie everytime but keep cookies only until
Firefox exits.

Allowing and keeping cookies are two distinct options. The current layout is
somewhat counter intuitive.


Reproducible: Always
Firefox 1.5 will have a feature called "Clear Private Data",
so this RFE is WFM, maybe it's still a bit counter intuitive.
if you want to be asked about cookies, and store them for this session only, use
the appropiate button on the prompt.
