So-called cross-site cookies
If the browser privacy is supposed to block cross-site cookies, EVEN WITH enhanced tracking prevention and permanent browsing mode enabled, why doesn't it do its job? I still have to go in and revoke the cookie and place that address in the "exceptions - cookies & site data" to block and the same address STILL comes right back. If that feature isn't going to work, there's no point in offering it.
I love Firefox (use it on all devices), but unless an option will actually do what it's supposed to do, don't offer it.

Firefox might consider some cross-site cookies important enough to keep them as the website might not work properly.
if i don't want "cross-site cookies" on facebook.com do i click the "Allowed X"? in my screenshot examples, i'm not clear (mac pc) 1. is FB is getting access to google cross-site cookies 2. is google getting access to FB cross-site cookies 3. any website in URL Bar shares with all "Cross-site Cookies" list
i've read several of the informative other similar posted topics but they r all closed so i post here.
i use Brave also which sells itself as best in privacy but it doesn't alert me there r cross-site cookies being used, so i included that screenshot. would u all feel firefox is the best on market for user protections? i have Ghostery free always active on firefox.
i did see in other topics that (some sites need/use cross-site cookies) so u have to allow for sites to function, meaning user must allow. that means allowing that site to allow the one "good" cross-site cookie also allows all the other nefarious cross-site cookies the corporation coded in?
thank you for all you educated concerned users helping us out!
on several cross-site topics, i see lots of great info with many confused user like me. i was a programmer, now wordpress website designer, and i have no time and no mental ability to figure this out. what i can say is i DO NOT WANT CORPORATIONS SPYING ON ME and gaining access to my life which i and no one would consent to if they knew it were happening. it's disgraceful american politicians r allowing this to happen. (i'm aware the EU has better regulations on corporations). do i have to be a Rocket Scientist to achieve not being spied on?
