Do you see the agenda here? we are being attacked by shills. this is why there is suddenly so much (((((((((politics))))))))) here. they do not approve of GNU icecat. just like ((((((they))))) do not approve of GMO labeling, or laws that protect the second amendment, or anything that upholds the freedoms of this crumbling country. why was a hero like edward snowden hunted like an animal? ask yourself who benefits from the failure of GNU icecat. ask yourself why system-d was created and forced into ALL linux out of nowhere for no reason, just as people switched over to run from windows 10, soylent green edition?

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

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

Except for the part about politics, I fully agree with Daniel. I care
about cookies as well, but the built-in "ask me every time" option was
never satisfactory, because it involves asking the user far too many

The only satisfactory solution I've found for cookies involve add-ons.
I've been using "Cookie Monster", which works well enough that I've not
tried any others. GNU IceCat already depends on add-ons for critically
important functionality (e.g. avoiding non-free _javascript_), so why not
rely on add-ons for cookies?

Regardless of your opinion on that, asking the IceCat maintainer to make
additional non-trivial changes to upstream Firefox, when he's obviously
too over-burdened with his existing workload, is counter-productive.
Perhaps you do not understand how much work would be involved.

David, have you tried "Cookie Monster", or any other similar add-on?
