What's the difference between cross site tracking cookies and cross site cookies option?

more options

Under: Settings > Privacy and Security > Enhanced Tracking Protection > Custom Choose which trackers and scripts to block. Cookies > (there are two options, they sound the same so what the hell is the difference?) 1: cross site tracking cookies - including social media cookies 2: cross site cookies - including social media cookies

From my understanding, when i use either 1 or 2 i dont understand what's the difference. This description lacks of explenation.

Does one of the setting include the other one? For exmaple if i use (1: cross site tracking cookies - including social media cookies) Does that mean i block cross site tracking cookies and cross site cookies or does it mean i only block cross site tracking cookies without blocking cross site cookies??

Or when i use (2: cross site cookies - including social media cookies) Does that mean i block cross site cookies without cross site tracking cookies or both??

Honestly this is so dumb, really the dev team should fix this tiny but stupid issue.

Hello,

The difference is how the cookies are used (now you may ask yourself how Firefox knows the difference, I have no clue)

The farther down you go, the more broken websites may be. On the top, we have blocking cookies on pages where the cookies are there to identify you from an external source used across websites, next we have blocking cookies set by all third party requests from a website that is used across websites, next we have unvisited websites... pretty self explanatory do note that this is more general as it doesn't care if it is used on other websites, then all third-party cookies is ignore all cookies coming from servers that aren't the tab you are on, and lastly all cookies... your browser would be more stateless as servers would not be easily able to identify you.

thanks for the explenation. I noticed that both (block all cookies and block all third party cookies) are causing some websites to break for me so i cannot use any of those settings, now i have to choose between option 1 and 2. Which one of them does block more content? I want to use the one blocking the most. However, its still unclear for me which is better for me. Option 1 - blocking cross site tracking cookies Option 2 - blocking cross site cookies

What if i want to block cross site cookies AND cross site tracking cookies, which one do i pick? Does Option 1 include both? block tracking and block cross site, or is it only block tracking but without cross site?

This really lacks explenation, i cant think of any worse description as the one firefox currently uses. Someone from the devs should fix this.
