[FireFox] Firefox 22 will block third-party cookies

Saw this on Ars Technica:

What I'm not clear of is if this is a real change, or if the 'allow 3rd party cookies' checkbox in the privacy settings will just be unchecked by default?

What a ridiculous option and why wait for 3 more versions?

This has been disabled on all my browsers for years!

Mozilla Privacy Blog - Firefox getting smarter about third-party cookies

quote:
The new default is currently only in this very early developer build of Firefox as it goes through Mozilla’s usual vetting process. As with other features we deploy, it will be several months of evaluating technical input from our users and the community before the new policy enters our Beta and General release versions of Firefox.
