I confirm the feeling of a serious loss of security and accessibility.

I was using this feature quite smoothly since few months without any problem.
I didn't lost my cookie access list. Only strangely Firefox came accepting all cookies. (after upgrade)

Passing from "asking for all cookies" to "accept all cookies"!

That's why I'm looking at your list to follow if this limitation also merge into Icecat.

Here some more links:

https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/43aftm/firefox_440_removed_always_ask_option_for_cookies/ - some user noticed the bug here
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/firefox-dev/3mnR3ZTGSFU - discussion on a google groups here as the comment on the bug are closed
https://input.mozilla.org/en-US/feedback/firefox/44.0.1/#moreinfo - feedback bug, I reported a negative feedback here. I don't know where to report.
https://linuxfr.org/news/firefox-44-debarque - linuxfr (French) some comment here about FF 44.

So for me, please no, do not merge this limitation into Icecat.

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.
