When is Primary Password going to protect stored cookies? (authentication cookies in particular)

There is a wave of malware targeting authentication cookies stored on disk (e.g. recent LTT hack). It has become obvious that malware doesn't need to target stored passwords to get access to a site/account. Primary Password has solved this problem, but only for the stored passwords. The stored cookies are just as exposed as the stored passwords were, provide access to sites/accounts and bypass 2FA checks because they bypass normal login protocols.

Primary password should secure the stored cookies as well. When is this going to be implemented?

Thanks!

That goes beyond what Primary password is only for Firefox account. One should check their cookie protection settings to change protection. Also one needs to insure their Security software is up to date and that it is working.
