Re: [Bug-gnuzilla] IceCat 45 IMPORTANT consideration: Keep cookie prompt

Why is everyone so opposed to an addon for something that nobody uses? I can't 
imagine anyone clicking 20 dialog boxes per each loaded banner ad. So opposed 
to using an addon that they are unwilling to update serious security problems 
in software?

All I know is that all of this politics is aggravating me and I have not used 
IceCat in months for my own personal safety. I not only have Linux but Windows 
to worry about so having security is more important than whether something 
should be farmed out to an already existing addon or included in the browser. 
IceCat can be a great alternative as it's pro-privacy and anti-DRM. All our 
arguing has delayed an IceCat release for too long and we will not be taken 
seriously as a free browser if we keep arguing about cookies until Firefox 60.0 
ESR is released.
