Recently I added a second user profile to my machine's OS, so I logon now. I have noticed that website cookies now have my name as a prefix,

example: cookie:my_name@blah.com

When this cookie is retrieved by the website that placed it, is "my_name" included in the information that's harvested?

As far as I know there's no way to get that info when retrieving cookies... You can only get what's it possible to set.
