How do I block cookies.

Posted

I don't like to automatically accept cookies. In any other browser I have ever used I had the option of accepting a cookie or not, usually a text window opened and asked me if I wanted to accept a cookie or not. How do i set that up in firefox. I have been looking at the features and do not find anyway to do that.
