"Accept cookies and site data " is checked. The "Accept third party cookies and sites" does NOT appear at all therefore I cannot check it and some sites want me to have it checked in "My Privacy" preferences before I can access/pay on their sites. What do I do?

Hi

"Accept cookies and site data" means that you allow all cookies, including third-party cookies. You need to select the second choice "Block cookies and site data". That will enable the "Type blocked" button and if you click this button you will see a list of choices that include various third-party cookies settings.

Note that you can use the search bar and type third-party to bring you to this section.

Oh, this is interesting. It just showed up in Nightly. (Screenshots attached.)

Unfortunately, the Knowledgebase article hasn't been updated yet. Hopefully cor-el's suggestion will let you manage this the way you like.
