Using Thunderbrowse (, I am able to log into a website (e.g. AMO), but only the first page loaded shows me as logged in. I do not know if this is a Thunderbrowse bug or not (I have notified the TB author). If there is some other test you can give, I'll post results.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a webpage via Thunderbrowse
2. Log into that site
3. Visit any page
Actual Results:  
I do not stay logged in.

Expected Results:  
Kept me logged in.

With Thunderbrowse enabled, the info box/URL bar is not visible with only it enabled. However, with some combination of these extensions enabled the info box and URL are visible. This is probably a Thunderbrowse bug.

Dupe of bug 236954? Bug 275131 (should have) added support for it...

Given the discussion in the date of this bug and the extensions in use (the main ones being Thunderbrowse and CS Lite in this case), this is more likely a problem with Thunderbrowse than Thunderbird's cookie handling - Thunderbird disables all cookies apart from RSS by default. From that discussion it appears Thunderbrowse overrides this in some manner.

Therefore resolving this as invalid as it is/was most likely a fault in the extension. If the extension author has a specific problem with Thunderbird, then they are quite welcome to file a bug on that and we can look at fixing it.
