Re: [Bug-gnuzilla] Suggestion: .gnuzilla/icecat/ instead of .mozilla/ice

I think it's a better idea to keep all the Mozilla-based products' profiles in 
the same predictable place. Thunderbird, Tor Browser Bundle, etc.

BTW, any new info on the v45 security issues vs the cookie prompt? Were we 
going to backport the security updates to v38, or move forward to v45 like TBB 
has, possibly including one of the add-ons Mozilla recommended?

Personally I can't imagine using a cookie prompt for each site (plus every 
banner ad and invisible GIF?) and always found it better to clean cookies on 
shutdown, and have done so pretty much all my life. I wouldn't mind sacrificing 
such a feature in exchange for fixing security issues now and more easily in 
the future.
