Block exception cookies not allowed for local file:// files

Bug 400097 broke this on purpose; see bug 400097 comment 9 (at least it removed the old code for scheme: on purpose; it's not clear that it necessarily intended to break all sorts of permissions for file:// behavior-wise). See also bug 204285 comment 12 et seq, which is a similar bug to this but about pop-ups. Not sure if cookies can be "fixed" locally in-app like pop-ups or not, but even if they can, it seems like there needs to be a separate bug filed against the Permissions Manager to restore some sane behavior for local files, perhaps as described in bug 204285 comment 34 et seq.
I guess the issue likely comes from the CookiePermissionManager but I haven't looked more into it. If it is not the CookiePermissionManager, it comes from the UI given that the PermissionManager should now accept local files .
