I found that the best way to handle cookies was to set Firefox to default to blocking them (Options > Privacy > set "Use custom settings for history"), uncheck "Accept cookies from sites". You can make exceptions to that using the Exceptions button, or you can get an extension called Cookie Monster, which makes setting exceptions very convenient.
