Comment (by tom):

 I'm not sure about document.cookie; but in general any cookie editing user
 interface features probably aren't correctly dealing with OriginAttributes
 and thus won't work. If it's a Firefox UI feature; that's a Firefox bug.
 (But there's also the general meta question 'How the heck do we expose the
 UI for a hidden feature succintly?')

 We do have the APIs exposed for WebExtensions to manipulate OA-based
 cookies but almost no one takes them into account.
