    Just saw Brendan Eich's blog post today: https://brendaneich.com/2013/05/c-is-for-cookie/

    Not sure the UI in this screen shot is the final one: https://bug818340.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=693740

    Users may be interested both in understanding how the new default works -- does it override all existing preferences? -- so they can make sites work correctly when needed and/or return to their earlier preference.
