 You can make this permanent yourself by leaving the private browsing mode.
 That said I have a hard time understanding your use case: Why would you
 want cookies from onion sites but not secure cookies which are only being
 sent/set by HTTPS protected websites? What properties do .onion sites give
 your cookies that those coming from HTTPS protected sites lack? And what
 about non-onion traffic in general and all the other tracking mechanisms
 associated with it? Those are fine but just cookies not?
