I don't know if bug 818340 on third-party cookies from visited websites should be added for 2.19 already, given that it's not the default yet per bug 851606, or if we want to wait until it's actually switched (assuming that this will eventually happen).

Anyway, proposed text (if the answer is "yes"):

"The acceptance policy for cookies from third-party websites can now be restricted to sites that you have explicitly visited before (bug 818340, bug 845353)."

Known issues (unless Neil's fix can still land for 2.19 final):

"In private browsing mode, opening a new private window will clear any private cookies which were accepted before (bug 874042)."

Looking at bug 885136 and bug 851606 comment #19, it appears that the default may not be switched to "visited 3rd-party cookies" until a global list is available to avoid certain false-positive/false-negative cases. Thus, mentioning that the new feature is available now and then again when it's made the default should be fine.

This has landed on comm-beta, thus should be in 2.19 final after the merge.

In the "Fixes in 2.19 Final" section of the changes page I see:
"Selecting saved search folders in MailNews could lead to a crash (bug 856768)."

Is bug 856768 ("Alter socorro regex args check") really the relevant bug number?

No it's not. I was foolish enough to trust the information from comm-release changeset 586520179d8b (Neil seems to dislike copy&paste even when it's advised). The actual one is bug 857678. Will correct the entry later today.

Release notes still state "SeaMonkey 2.19 up to/including SeaMonkey 2.19 Beta 2" with other mentioning of 2.19b2 throughout the page while the other pages have been correctly updated. Was this missed or is it just a lag in the site propagating?
