How CookiePie was made?
A first look at the FireFox extensions capabilities let us think this extension was almost impossible to do. One of the limitations was the unconnected parts between http transactions and UI being difficult to correlate an UI to a specific http request/response, more when AJAX/XmlHttpRequest (i.e: GMail) is involved.
The work involved mainly short term research and trying to push to the extreme FireFox capabilities without knowing nothing of Mozilla Extensions at the start of development.
Gecko 1.8.1 has some implementation errors: FireFox store cookies although our http observer changes the response header. This means the common cookies are changed in the FireFox extensions for every transaction on each tab. More information at: Mozilla Bugzilla
The reordering of tabs is breaking GMail account opened tabs.
GMail has added after we finish this extension, an alert we hope to repair it so GMail doesn't know about another connection on another tab or window.
User may experience problems with another Firefox extensions (for example Tab Mix Plus)
