Manage Permissions - Understanding what blocks accomplish
I can block a site in Manage Permissions, but then I go to it and still get cookies from it, so in what sense am I blocking a site in Managed Permissions? Does it matter if I go to the blocked site via a link or keying the web address? Obviously, I could just avoid going to the site, but then I wouldn't need to use Manage Permissions at all, just avoid the site. So I can't make sense for myself what blocking a site in Manage Permissions accomplishes in Firefox, what the blocking function is for, and how and when it does something.

Hi Quenchoo, Have you cleared the cookies and site data for that site? If any were there before you blocked the site you would still be able to visit it. Try clearing the cookies & site data for that specific site, leave it blocked and see if the problem persists. This article may help: Clear cookies and site data in Firefox
