I'm using: Mozilla/5.0 (X11;U;Linux x86_64;en-US;rv:1.9.2)Gecko/20100123
In preferences if I set: History->Firefox will: Use custom settings
for history and check (x) Accept cookies from sites and
uncheck () Accept third party cookies and set Keep until: ask me
With this setting sites will not load. The status bar will display
Loading... forever. On other platforms including 32bit Ubuntu it will
show a dialog and state the site wants to set a cookie and ask if you
want to accept it and provide a checkbox to make this the default
setting for this site.
This happened in my default profile. Since I had imported a bookmark
file I setup a new, clean test profile and it was the same.
I wonder if anyone else sees this same behaviour? I'm thinking of
filing a bug, but if it's just me I would want to dig a little deeper so
I don't waste their time.
BE WARNED if you try this and are using multiple profiles and having
Firefox offer you the option of which profile to use on startup the next
time you start Firefox it will start in whatever profile was active when
you shut it down. To get the multiple profiles option back I had to
clear the cache, shutdown Firefox and reboot Ubuntu.
