I have normally "Accept cookies from site" off (unchecked) and I use the Exceptions list for sites that I want to allow then to put cookies.

However, when I add a certain site to the Exceptions list and set "Allow" cookies for it, the site still tells me that the cookies should be on! I have to activate "Accept cookies from site" so that the site works properly.

But then, what's the purpose of the "Exceptions" list???

If it doesn't work then you will have to enable cookies temporarily to see which domains you need and possibly remove cookies from that domain that were already created (exceptions only apply to newly created cookies).
It is not really intuitive if you disable cookies or use the "ask me" setting as that might not work.
In some cases you may also have to set an exception for third-party domains.

Websites might be using cookies from more than one domain, so you may be creating an allow exception for the wrong domain.
You can check that in the Cookie Manager.

Thank you for your fast reply!

However, I can't see how can I used your advice ...

When one wants to add a site (domain) in a list ("Exceptions" list or other), it's only logical to use the site one is currently visiting, isn't it? Then, how could one know if that site is the "wrong domain" to use or which other domains -- "invisible" to the user -- to include in the list?
