Is there some way to have Firefox accept ALL "first party" "session" cookies?

I pretty much know how to configure Firefox to "accept" or "reject" cookies. Am also aware that one can address the issue of 3rd party cookies.

I am not sure, however, if it is possible to have Firefox reject all First-Party cookies that are not "session" cookies.

In other words I don't want to accept any Third Party Cookies, and I don't want to accept any First Party cookies--unless they are "Session Only".

Can this be done?

Am using Firefox 18.0.1 and Windows 7

Hello haases, go to about:config and find :

network.cookie.alwaysAcceptSessionCookies , double-click on it to make it TRUE

network.cookie.thirdparty.sessionOnly , double-click on it to make it TRUE

network.cookie.lifetimePolicy right-click on it > modify > put 2
