#18231 new defect

Torbutton keeps forgetting which cookies I would like to protect

Would be great to remove all cookies frequently if trustworthy cookies are easily protected, but it isn't helpful if the "Cookie Protections..." wizard always shows them as "false".

I can open up "Cookie Protections...", set useful cookie protection to "true", then leave the wizard. If I immediately open it again, it will have forgotten which cookies I cared to protect - making this feature close to useless.

Unlike #10824 I unselected Torbutton's own "Don't record history…" switch in Privacy Settings (I don't need to distrust my own computer or fear law enforcement). Have not checked what happens if I flick that switch since in that case I would expect it to indeed not persist the choice of cookies.

I am using TBB 5.0.7 from the gentoo torbrowser overlay. install.rdf from torbutton xpi says I am using

Thanks in advance for looking into this, Mike. Was great meeting you in Berlin!

@gk Close as a duplicate of #11206 - since Tor Button doesn't have this functionality any more ?
