comment Leave ACL handling to Windows with Cygwin rsync
@miking already gave a nice hint with that link and the noacl option. Didn't work out for me with MobaXterm (portable), as that seems to re-create /etc/fstab on each start. I partially got around that placing mount -c /drives -o binary,posix=0,user,auto,noacl into my .bashrc. "Partially" as this only affects the "Windows drive letters" (and not e.g. /home).

comment How to print new line character with echo?
@michael_n which is what the OP finally reverted too, in fact. But the question was explicitely stating "with echo" – hence my answer this way. Anyhow, it was not "with Bash" – so thanks for your pointing out those differences!

comment How to control websites' use of localStorage in Firefox?
That's what it's set here. Got no exception yet. Maybe the sites using LocalStorage here (e.g. SE) are limited to those having "full cookie permission", so I was not bugged by that bug (yet). And yeah, a 2012 bug still unsolved. I rawly remember it hit me when I just joined SE (as stated in my question), and had trouble logging in...

comment How to control websites' use of localStorage in Firefox?
Thanks a lot for your comprehensive answer! No detail left open :) And yes, I use that Foundstone addon already for a while to investigate. Also checked the corresponding databases with SQLiteman. What I was lacking you filled in: As the described cookie policy matches mine (unticked that checkbox, have non-whitelisted sites ask first), I feel backslapped :)

@bonob That's a good pointer, thanks! May I suggest you inform the dev about your finding, so he can correct the description?

comment Accept Cookie by Name
Having accepted this: Have you written/found such a script meanwhile, and maybe would make it public? I'm interested in the very same topic, just the other way around: having discovered that some proxies "inject" cookies (which they claim to come from the visited site, google for "BCSI-CS- cookie" for details), I want to automatically reject those.
