#18 Huge concern

I'd just like to note again a big concern noted several times already but worryingly not being dealt with. The Security/privacy option of "allow cookies from originating site only" has been outright taken away. This simple privacy feature existed since early Fx versions and even now exists in IE and other browsers. Its a very basic privacy/security feature, and with the addition of many things in the options window, in no way is it justified to take away such a basic privacy/security feature. This needs urgent attention as its been extremely underrated and will lead to problems, and people percieving Firefox to be taking away basic security/privacy features but adding other lesser known or needed features, and thats basically correct. This needs an urgent re-think.
