Make contextualIdentities an optional permission.

See original GitHub issue

Cookie AutoDelete changing this internal Firefox preference: privacy.userContext.enabled;true in about:config without my permission and without my knowledge.

My Default preference is: privacy.userContext.enabled;false

I also don’t have ability to control (enable/disable) this “feature”.

Enabling or disabling “Enable Support for Firefox’s Contextual Identities (EXPERIMENTAL Firefox 53+)” setting in Cookie AutoDelete option doesn’t change anything.

I’m using Cookie AutoDelete 1.4.4 + Firefox Nightly 57.0a1.

Please provide ability to control (enable/disable) this “feature” and some information after installing this extension.

Nope sorry individual APIs need their own support for optional API support.

The bug is: if you want to follow it.

Follow the bugzilla link above for progress as it is a browser limitation at this time.

TL;DR at this time, not yet.

Closing for now due to browser limitations. Feel free to comment on this to reopen it or create a new issue (when contextualIdentities can be made optional).
