    Thanks JR. I just checked again and my machines have been updated to FF 59 now. I may have been too early.

    Ah finally. With a new API, addons that delete cookies now can also delete cookies when First Party Isolation is enabled.
    UPDATE:
    Wow, download manager S3 is working again as well. Though the url displayed when hovering on a link is displayed on top of the downloadbar.

    What do you especially like about Download Manager S3? I've been using WX Download Status Bar which looks similar, but I'm open to trying new things :)

    Thanks - here are the details. It's interesting to note that also Firefox ESR 52.7.2 is affected. This suggests that code is impacted which is not written in Rust (as there is no Rust code in FF 52). In the future it will be interesting to watch if those types of vulnerabilities will still occur if more and more code in FF is rewritten in Rust.
