TorBrowser or NoScript 10 prevents cookies even if cookie exceptions are present
In Linux-64 Mint 18.1 & NoScript 10.1.9.6, I can't set TBB 8 or 8.0.1 UI prefs to "Block cookies" and use cookie exceptions (session cookies). TBB and / or NS won't use the exceptions to set cookies for them.
-Up through TBB 7.5 & NS 5.x, blocking cookies globally & using exceptions worked fine.
-It appeared the problem may be mostly NS, as uninstalling NS fixed most of the problem. (NoScript forum says contact TorProject "support" for TBB & NS problems).
Blocking cookies by default in browser prefs & entering site exceptions as needed always worked in TBB & NS 3, 4, 5.x. It STILL works in Fx 60.1 & NS 10.1.9.6.
When cookies are blocked & but an exception is entered, https://trac.torproject.org shows: "Missing or invalid form token. Do you have cookies enabled?"
Switch the TBB UI pref to "Allow cookies" & cookies are set & allows logging in or browsing (for sites demanding cookies). Though to login on many sites, every option in NS 10 "Trusted" mode must be enabled. I don't know if that's a good idea. That wasn't true in TBB 7,5 & NS 5.x.
Switch TBB pref back to "Block cookies & data" & no sites I've tested worked (but had cookie exceptions). There's no reason to allow cookies for all sites, all the time.
- Even if TBB cookies are enabled, only cookie names show in TBB "View cookies." If you R-click the web page > Page Info > Security, cookie names & content are visible there.
