Restore the legend
Firefox's privacy options panel contained the text "Cookies are delicious delicacies" since version 0.1, when it was called Phoenix.
On July 24, 2004, a Firefox developer replaced this text with "Cookies are pieces of information stored by web pages on your computer. They are used to remember login information and other data."
This Firefox extension lets you restore the famous placeholder text.

Delicious Delicacies 0.1 (2004-08-22)
- Delicious Delicacies 0.5 causes the preferences window to be larger than it should be if browser.preferences.animateFadeIn is set to true and you start with the General pane selected and then click to switch to the Privacy pane. I guess this extension modifies the DOM at a time when either XUL layout or preferences window code doesn't expect it to be modified. I don't know whether this is a bug in the extension or a bug in Firefox 1.5. (browser.preferences.animateFadeIn is usually true on Mac but not on Windows or Linux. I only tested on Windows.)
