Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0
Build ID: 20120312181643

Steps to reproduce:

Used about:config to set network.cookie.lifetimePolicy to 1 (ask every time), in Aurora 13.0a2 (2012-03-30)
Cleared all cookies
Browsed to www.google.co.uk

(HTC Desire HD, Android 2.3.5)


Actual results:

Browser went "busy" (whirling wheel).  Dialog didn't come up.
Opened a second tab (any destination - chose about:config)- tab 2 showed the dialog content, but only had the checkbox for "Use my choice for all cookies from this site" and the "Show Details" button; didn't show the accept/reject etc buttons.
Needed to use the Andoid application manager to force stop then clear data to be able to use Aurora again.


Expected results:

Dialog should have come up immediately.  Accept/reject etc buttons should have been present.

This works ok in Firefox 10.0.3 for Android.

It would be helpful to know if the browser still causes lockup. As per the duplicate report above, we still don't honor showing a prompt for network.cookie.lifetimePolicy; 1

This still happens in Firefox for Android 43.0 as described in comment #1. I have to exit Firefox through Ff menu in a new or different pre-existing tab in order to change the setting back.

Running Android 2.3.6.

Getting to confirm cookies would be a very important feature, because, AFAIK, major competition doesn't have this feature in their mobile browsers.
