[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#591037: chromium-browser: should not repeatedly ask if cookies should be set in incognito mode

Package: chromium-browser
Version: 5.0.375.125~r53311-1
Severity: normal


The above upstream bug report has this issue.

When in incognito mode and when you have configured Chrome to ask before
storing cookies there is no way to say "allow all cookies from this site" (for
the duration of the incognito session) and there is no way to configure the
cookie policy for incognito mode to be either "accept all" or "reject all".
This means that if you visit a cookie-heavy site such as www.microsoft.com
then you have to press ENTER a lot.


The above bug regarding closing an incognito window when being asked for a
cookie causing a crash makes this more annoying.  If a web site is on a slow
link and is periodically sending another cookie then there is always the chance
of getting a crash when you close a tab.  I haven't reproduced #42920 on the
current chromium-browser package (it hit me on the Google Chrome package).
