i want third party cookies enabled in firefox for linux !! when it will happen ?


Hello. I have Firefox 24,i'm on linux64,and i understood that default block of 3rd party cookies,is postponed (again). I don't need cookies,as they're possible security risks and tracking,as i'm sure many of the linux users don't want aswell. Why Mozilla postponed that ? Maybe some good 'advice' from the big brother Google ? I used Firefox since the 2.0 releases,and despite all, i don't want to change the browser. Please some in charge keep it safe,and keep us safer.

Additional System Details

Installed Plug-ins

  • Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202


  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0

This isn't an answer to your question, only a note.

Google doesn't run or fund Firefox!
Google only pays Mozilla to be set as the default search engine[1] .

Anything else that you may hear about Google funding its competition is only rumors.

As for your question, are you asking how to disable only third party cookies? This can be done, via Firefox options. (See attached screenshot)

Yes i know you can disable them and how,thanks,but i want a browser default,you could say a 'hard coded strong privacy' and i don't want firefox to become a an asset of some big internet boss,but to be reaching for the users needs,not money ones. I take privacy VERY important,as it should be, in my opinion. As for the other answer, i'll check it out,thank you. The patch article.

To programmers of Mozilla Firefox are always trying to keep their users of Firefox safe and secure on the web. They too take privacy VERY seriously and are not willing to compromise the safety of their users.

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.

If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. (You'll need to be on the latest version of Firefox to submit feedback). Your feedback gets collected at http://input.mozilla.org/, where a team of people read it and gather data about the most common issues.
