I found the bug for this, turns out it's not "3rd party cookies" it's "3rd party cookies from unknown domains". So if you've visited the 3rd party that wants to set cookies then Firefox will allow it.


Not if you block third party cookies.

You can do the same with Firefox as far back as I can remember. No it is not new.

Modern internet is run on scams, viruses, scareware, and tracking which we simply refer by the politically correct term "advertisements"

You can't go against the machine.

The deal they have to use a custom google search in which mozilla gets paid for each time it's used....
What's so bad about that precisely?

Well, since Mozilla depends on Google to live on...they will have to make an exception the next time the deal is up for review.

But hey, there's always Microsoft to make a better deal to have Bing as default ;)

What does that have to do with Mozilla blocking third party cookies, that's not going have any affect the deal mozilla has with Google. Google just pays
Mozilla to be default search engine.
