Cookie/Password engines should also sync cookie/password permissions
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052912 Firefox/3.0 eMusic DLM/4.0_184.108.40.206 Build Identifier: 0.2.2 Syncing cookies without syncing cookie permissions (no/yes/session-only) for sites is a bit useless, especially for users who don't allow cookies for any site by default: A cookie for a white-listed site gets synced but the white-list entry for the site doesn't. The same applies to passwords and password permissions. Please consider syncing permissions.sqlite too. Reproducible: Always
Justin, just FYI. Let's talk on monday maybe?
To clarify: this is a request to sync the password and cookie per-site prefs that control whether to ask the user what to do (e.g. pop down the infobar and ask to save the password). Similar to site-specific prefs.

This is the issue I see as the problem which I would like to see resolved.
I should note that Sync does not currently sync cookies; see Bug 638865.
Is this the same as bug 470699? Is everything consolidated in the permissions manager backend or is it just the frontend that is consolidated in about:permissions?
It is now, indeed. Cookie perms used to be special, but no longer.
