Accept Cookies Only From The Web Site You Are On (i.e. the originating server)
This video tutorial shows you how to change the settings in Firefox so that the browser will allow only cookies from the Web site that you are visiting (Firefox refers to the Web site you are visiting as the "originating server.") Under these settings, cookies sent from a Web site other than the Web site you are visiting are blocked. For instance, imagine visiting a fictional Web site called SomePortal.com. The SomePortal.com Web site allows the fictional Web site CookiePortal.com to place cookies on the browsers of visitors to SomePortal.com. When you change the Firefox cookie settings in the way shown in this video tutorial, the browser would block cookies from CookiePortal.com because they are not from the Web page that you are visiting -- SomePortal.com. Note that cookies from SomePortal.com will be accepted because Firefox considers them to be from the originating server.
