How to allow some third-party cookies for some extensions?

My Firefox is configured to block third-party cookies. After a Firefox update (from/to which versions I don't remember as I don't pay attention to this), my Evernote extension has stopped working. At first I thought it was an extension problem, but after installing the OneDrive extension, it gave me a message about the extension requiring permission for third-party cookies. I tried to find a way to allow some third-party cookies or to allow some extensions to access them, but there's almost no information on this except some suggestions on using still another extension to manage cookies (which I don't want to try).

Is there a way to manage granular permissions for third-party cookies for some sites or some extensions?

Thanks!

If you do not want to allow third-party cookies in general or for some cases (visited) then you can create a cookie allow exception for specific domains. You can set network.cookie.thirdparty.sessionOnly to true on the about:config page to make third-party cookies behave as session cookies that expire when Firefox is closed.

Note that exceptions are stored as part of the Site Preferences, so you lose exceptions when you clear the Site Preferences.

Hi cor-el, thanks for answering.

Yes, the idea is to create exceptions, but where? It's an extension that's asking access to third-party cookies, so I'm not in a tab to click on the "i" icon and turn off blocking for that specific site. Neither the cookies permissions option on preferences is allowing the extension to work correctly.

Am I missing any configuration option for managing cookies?

Also, enabling the option for treating third-party cookies as session cookies is not what I want.

Mozilla just shouldn't roll this feauture (blocking third-party cookies) for standart mode of content blocking. Let it be only in strict and custom as it was before 68 update. People who need this will turn this on themselves.

Hi Vitaliy1993, I'm not sure I agree with you, but that's not the point of my question. I have explicitly blocked all third-party cookies.
