    Hi,

    Despite settings, Firefox 2.0 accept tracking cookies (3rd party
    cookies) from some (thus not all) websites.

    Example:

    - Make sure "network.cookie.cookieBehavior" is set to 1
    - surf to http://www.hccmagazine.nl/ (Site is in the Dutch language but
    that is irrelevant.)

    Result: cookies from "webads" and / or "doubleclick" are accepted. (This
    depends on te type of advertisement on top)

    Is this a known bug?

    Met vr. gr,
