Does anyone know of a way of allowing 3rd party cookies on a site by site basis?

I have 3rd party cookies set to Never to cut down on tracking, and prior to FF57, I used Cookie Monster to control cookies for each particular site I used. It seems that since 57 came along these options no longer exist and it's an 'all or nothing' situation.

Sadly this seems like a step backwards to me and I'm surprised that it was not considered when developing FF57 - I'm sure there must have been countless users who, like me, relied on Cookie Monster

You can create "Allow" or "Allow for Session" exceptions for the site that tries to set the cookies. So if you're on example.com and you need to accept cookies from othersite.net, create such an exception for https://othersite.net

  1. about:preferences#privacy
  2. Firefox will: use custom settings for history
  3. Exceptions…
