Description

The nonfunctional options should be grayed out.

Part of nonfunctional options in Tor Browser:
Tools > options > Privacy&Security > Manage Data / Clear Cookie doesn't work and gives the user the wrong impression that the deed is done.

This inform that the action is done, the button is not grayed, but these options do nothing. It is very dangerous for user.

Is there any way to clear cookies for specific one site?

Version: 8.0.4 (based on Mozilla Firefox 60.4.0esr) (32-bit)

The "Page Info" -> tab "Permissions" seems also be nonfunctional :( See attachment.

How do you verify that those options actually do nothing?

I closed logged site. I tried to use these options clearing all cookies (the list of cookies was empty) and reload the site. I still was logged!!! :( Probably I was logged also on other sites and I do not know about it because I do not get warning about non-functionality. :angry:

Due above (users without knowledge still can be logged and tracked) I change the priority to very high for Tor Browser.
