by the way, you need to point out that the 'privacy features' that you are advocating break some applications.
so they shouldn't be blindly applied to all sites.
at this point you are appointing someone else to select which sites you are going to be able to work with.
just like with the anti-spam blackhole lists, this can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how closely your definition of a problem site matches the definition of the people managing the list.
remember that for all that you are complaining about them not including 'privacy' features, they do include the ability to block cookies from specific servers, or only accept them for the current session. they even give you the ability to do this choice every single time a cookie is supplied.
nobody takes it to this extreme (I'm one of the more extreme cases, but even I have many sites that I just say "allow and don't ask me" for because it is too painful to look at every cookie.)
exactly what 'privacy features' that are not blacklists of sites do you believe need to be added to firefox that google is blocking?
