Where do I set cookies to prompt instead of accept all cookies?

I had to turn third party cookies on temporarily and it looks like the cookie settings for first party cookies have changed. I no longer have the option to set first party cookies to prompt for permission when a new web sight wants to set a cookie.

That's true, Firefox 44+ no longer have that option. I don't think this feature will be coming back, but if you want to suggest that, you can use the following site (click the sad face):

Firefox should still be using the block/allow list you have accumulated so far. To control cookies from sites you haven't visited before, I suggest:

(1) Select a default cookie policy among these options:

  • Allow sites to set persistent cookies if they want ("Keep until: they expire")
  • Allow sites to set only session cookies ("Keep until: I close Firefox") (I use and recommend this)
  • Block sites from setting cookies (Uncheck the box for allowing sites to set cookies)

(2) Install an extension that makes it easy to make site-specific changes, such as Cookie Monster.

The Cookie Monster button on the toolbar allows you to see permissions for first party and third party cookies and to change them.

Sample screen shot attached -- the option to "Apply cookie settings to both HTTP and HTTPS" is turned on, which streamlines the menu. With this option you don't have to set/modify permissions for both HTTP or HTTPS on the same site.
