Description

Environment

Ubuntu 14.10 alpha, Firefox 32a (Nightlies), ABP 2.6.1.3820 EasyList + Easylist Privacy.

Since ABP no longer blocks page rendering and thus no longer protects privacy on startup, ABP should clean cookies on startup to compensate.

In Options/Privacy/History you can just configure the custom settings to keep cookies only until you close Firefox. Apart from that, we are planning to add a setting to ABP to chose whether to delay the startup of Firefox in favour of ABP already running or to start Firefox as quickly as possible with maybe not yet loaded ABP until we managed to improve the speed by a high enough degree.

Well that's both ridiculous and unhelpful.

This on the other hand is incredibly helpful and thanks for stating that on record, I raised the subject in another bug, but alas nothing was said, hence filing this as a workaround. Thanks again.
