[Bug-gnuzilla] Cookie confirmation dialog loss in Firefox; affects GNU I

Hi there.
After Firefox 44.0 was released, it turned out, that it lost the
cookie confirmation dialog, and upgrading to version 44.0 also deleted
all per-site permissions for cookies. It's a reduction of privacy
options, and also introduces some dataloss.

All this was achieved in Mozilla Bug 606655

Dataloss reported here:

After Firefox 44.0 release, many ferociously complained in Bugzilla,
and the bug was thereafter restricted to any new comments; any
relevant discussion was moved here:


Note, that SeaMonkey also experienced the same backend/UI loss:

For the time being, people can stay with Firefox 43.0.4 or Firefox 38.6.x ESR.

There is, though, a strong possibility, that Firefox 45 ESR (based on
Firefox 45, planned to be released on March 8) won't have the cookie
confirmation functionality anymore.

I was thinking, that cookie confirmation dialogs should be retained in
IceCat, given that IceCat is much more privacy-conscious.
