Affecting Third-party cookies may be disabled by default in the future

Published: | Categories: Networking, Privacy & Security


There is a lengthy discussion about third-party cookies and privacy. This change was originally planned for Firefox 22 but reverted on the Beta and Release channels due to obvious compatibility issues. Third-party cookies have been disabled by default on the Developer Edition and Nightly channels, the relevant bug is still open, and now Firefox 42 features Private Browsing with Tracking Protection. Though there is not clear timeline yet, this topic is worth your attention.
