No 3rd party cookies in Firefox 2


Recommended Posts

has anyone else noticed that Firefox 2 doesn't allow blocking of 3rd party cookies, only accept or disallow cookies.

i went and found this really cool site which documents all of the obscure config options in firefox

to allow only 3rd pary cookies

type "about:config" (without the talking marks) in the address bar of firefox

then type "network.cookie" in the filter

there should be one field left, this is


change this from the default of 0 to 1

it will already be 1 if you're upgrading from your old version of firefox

they didn't remove the feature, but it shits me that they took it out of the GUI, now i have to customise this every time i want to no accept 3rd party cookies. and you're much less likely to turn this off if it's not in the GUI

Yeah, same here. I've got it set to 'Ask' and most of the time just hit Deny. Even session cookies usually aren't required when all you want is to look at a page. And it's just one more piece of crap that isn't stored on your computer.

Seriously, check out how many cookies you have on your machine. It's _insane_. And most of them only contain the last time you visited or some silly shit like that.
