Cross-site cookie protection SOMETIMES breaks tumblr
Hi, ever since cross-site cookie protection came in, all tumblr blogs I go to (as in when I type their url into the address bar, not when I visit them from my tumblr dash) sometimes break, treating me as if I'm logged out, except when I click to log in it takes me straight to the dashboard. Refreshing can sometimes fix it, making it that most dreaded of troubleshooting pains, an intermittent problem. Should be easier than most though, as this happens roughly about three times out of four, although sometimes I can have a bad run and refresh twenty times or more without being able to actually interact with anything as if I were logged in. And the occasional blog that the owner took advantage of advanced features to have a non-[user name].tumblr.com site, like for example this one simply refuse to see me as logged in at all. I PRESUME this is because the existing tumblr.com exceptions only cover some of the servers tumblr uses to authenticate logins, or something, but even when a blog is not letting me interact with stuff Firefox still says it detects 'no trackers known to Firefox'.

You can check for issues with Total Cookie Protection.
Hmm... I thought the issue was Total Cookie Protection due to the timing of when I started having the issue, after Mozilla started testing the feature, and it seemed to get worse once Cookie Protection was fully rolled out. But it seems I was assigning causation when it was in fact correlation, as disabling Total Cookie Protection didn't solve the issue. So, not Total Cookie Protection, but still an intermittent issue on all normal tumblr blogs and seemingly permanent one on non-[user name].tumblr.com blogs. Any suggestions on what could actually be causing it, rather than Cookie Protection?
