Mozilla has decided from Firefox 22 onwards that browser will not allow third-party cookies to be installed on users computer if they’ve not visited that site. If you don’t want to allow third-party cookies in browsers like Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers by default here is how to do it.

Let me brief you about third-party cookies with an example: when you visit a blog that has share buttons placed below post, these buttons can track you by installing cookies on your computer which Facebook and Twitter can read, these are called third-party cookies. Here you’ve not visited these sites directly.

You’re welcome. If you don’t know Soon Firefox will block third party cookies by default then you don’t need to manually block them.
