Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:10.0.10) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.10
Build ID: 20121024073834

Steps to reproduce:

I want to set the cookie permissions for a ite listed in about:permissions to match the global default, so that the cookie setting permission will change in line with changes made in the options dialog.


Actual results:

Cannot be done.  There is no option for this.  If the site currently does not have an exception, it can still appear in the list but with no indication that it is actually not an exception for that site.  If there is currently an exception it cannot be removed except by pressing the forget button, but this also removes any other permission settings for the site.


Expected results:

One of the permission options should be something like "default setting" and should act to remove the exception.  The cookie permission would then be whatever the global permission is and would change whenever the global permission changes.  Probably this should be done for more than just cookies.
Thank you Ian for this enhancement proposal!
