If the Cookies window is open and no browser or other Firefox windows are open, opening a new browser window will now still open the last page visited instead of a blank page, even if "Show a blank page" is selected for "When Firefox starts:", and even if the last browser window opened was blank; I tested this by opening a webpage and then opening a blank browser window, closing the browser window with the webpage, then closing the blank browser window, then opening a new browser window while the Cookies window remained open. It is a time waster to have to continually close and reopen the Cookies window and a potential privacy disaster to have your website reopened after you closed your browser. Please, please, fix this.

Note: the Options dialog has to be closed while doing this.

It is also a waste of time to have to re-clear cookies, and flash cookies as well, when the webpage reopened when you weren't expecting it.

Work-around: keep a blank browser window open while keeping the cookies window open.
