Description

about:preferences#privacy

Before:
[_] Accept Cookies from sites

After:
[_] Accept Cookies from clearnet sites
[X] Accept Cookies from .onion sites

I had to add my .onion site to "Exceptions"(Allow for session).
It automatically cleared when I restart the browser.

Please make this permanent by:
a) Add new option: [X] Don't clear my cookie exceptions list.
b) Or, add new cookie option, like above.

You can make this permanent yourself by leaving the private browsing mode. That said I have a hard time understanding your use case: Why would you want cookies from onion sites but not secure cookies which are only being sent/set by HTTPS protected websites? What properties do .onion sites give your cookies that those coming from HTTPS protected sites lack? And what about non-onion traffic in general and all the other tracking mechanisms associated with it? Those are fine but just cookies not?
