cookies: don't read cookie files from ancient browsers
Remove the code that attempted to read cookie files from well-known browser locations. This code was written for ancient browsers, and only knew about Mozilla and Netscape. While it's possible that these browsers are still alive and still use the same config locations and cookie file formats, the only Mozilla-based browser that still matters is Firefox. Firefox uses a sqlite database for cookies, located in a slightly different config path. Just remove this code.
