    Third party cookie prompts (FF 1.0.3)

    Not sure whether this is something about Firefox or about Google, but I've started getting prompts now and then for third party cookies. I never want third party cookies, and I'm surprised to get prompts. Anyone else noticing this? (Sorry for the large screen shot, I was in a hurry...)

    This will be caused by a new Google / Firefox feature, results prefetching. The link also explains how to disable it.

    Oh, <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0>. In my opinion, this is a severe privacy problem. And it's especially bad for lawyers doing investigations. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Thanks for the tip!

    Is there documentation somewhere of all the options in about:config?
