Third-party cookies are cookies set by a website other than the one you are currently on. For example, cnn.com might have a Facebook like button on their site. The like button will set a cookie that can be read by Facebook. That would be considered a third-party cookie. Some advertisers use these types of cookies to track your visits to the various websites on which they advertise. This is called cross-site tracking.

Note: Cross-site tracking cookies are now disabled by default for all Firefox users. See Enhanced Tracking Protection for more information about how Firefox protects you against tracking.

When third-party cookies are disabled, it can stop some, but not all types of tracking. If you are concerned about tracking, see also How do I turn on the Do Not Track feature?, Enhanced Tracking Protection in Firefox for desktop and Trackers and scripts Firefox blocks in Enhanced Tracking Protection.
