Sending cookies conforms too closely to the spec

Reported by: bringert Owned by: somebody
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: component1 Version:

From http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=471140:

Package: libghc6-http-dev
Version: 30010004-2
Severity: wishlist

When sending cookies in a request, the cookies get sent with $Version,
$Path, and $Domain set, one cookie per header. While this conforms
exactly to the spec, there are some servers that don't process these
headers correctly. It might be nice if there were some way of specifying
that cookies could be sent in a more iceweasel-like manner.

It's not clear to me what servers this concerns, nor what exactly needs to be changed. What does Iceweasel do?

I'm talking specifically about livejournal.com. I was trying to see my friends' "friends-only" entries, but it wasn't paying attention to my cookies. When I changed it to be more like firefox, it worked.

Firefox sends:

Cookie: <name>=<value>; <name>=<value>;

just wondering while cleaning the debian bugtracking system: Is this going to be fixed, will it not be fixed, or does it depend? :-)
