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.

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.
