The following excerpt from Mozilla:
"Today we are pleased to announce Total Cookie Protection, a major privacy advance in Firefox built into ETP Strict Mode. Total Cookie Protection..."

But the words 'Total Cookie Protection' are not present Options/Privacy/Total Cookie Protection/Strict? And there's no reference to same under Cookies and Site Data.

I'll bite... is the TCP feature implicit once Strict is selected?

State Partitioning is the technical term for a new privacy feature in Firefox called Total Cookie Protection, which will be available in ETP Strict Mode in Firefox 86.


REF: Introducing State Partitioning

Looks like if you enable Strict Mode it is enabled.

So if Partioning and denies entrance to a website and either you're prompted and grant access or you open Cookies and grant exception, that exception lasts for 30 day?

Re the new 'Total Cookie Protection' feature, the full description of the feature given here - https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2021/02/23/total-cookie-protection/ seems to imply that 'Container Tabs' are no longer needed or required. TCP replaces 'Container Tabs'. Correct? Or am I missing something?

I use the Nightly version of Firefox and my container tabs still work, but I use the Standard ETP selection.
