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...

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.

comment How to build RPM from SVN?
I just notice I forgot the disclosure: I'm the dev of said framework, and author of the linked article. Though that might have been guessed from the name and my nick already, it's custom to explicitly state it. Better late than never ;)

comment Distinction between active/inactive windows (titlebars) with Windows 7 Aero
Unfortunately, that site requires an account to download attachments. I'd like to try one of the solutions from there, but am not willing to provide any personal data just for a simple download. Is it possible to have those "themes" (the "Glutton" one looks promising) downloadable via a non-barred site?

Thank you for the details explained! I'm using Cookie Controller for a while now, and am quite satisfied with it :) Flash-Cookies I still handle with BetterPrivacy; this is the only thing missing for an all-in-one solution. But the two have no problems with each other, so it's working fine for me.
