I block all cookies by default, and then add exceptions.
Now I have to add many exceptions such as,
forum.foo.com
forum.bar.com
forum.baz.com

bugzilla.mozilla.org
bugzilla.gnome.org
bugzilla.redhat.com

You should be able to use wildcards such as,
forum.*
bugzilla.*

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
I have to add an exception for every single forum and bugzilla site manually.

Expected Results:  
Be able to use wildcards.

I agree with this request. I also block cookies by default, but some sites won't work without accepting certain (ad-related) cookies. The obvious solution is to create an "Allow for session" exception. However, there are sites generating cookies for servers like:

0abb34d87134f871e0bc92.damoh.welt.de

And the first part of that is different every time. The only way around this would be an exception for *.damoh.welt.de, but that doesn't work today.
Dupe of bug 259006?

Is there any progress on this?
