Firefox is removing RSS features, but defaults to allowing third-party cookies.

Firefox, your priorities are wrong.

Remove the old RSS code, make it new. Block third-party cookies.

Or drop RSS like it was gopher+, and block third-party cookies.

Or ignore everything I've said and block third-party cookies.

I am a dad, solo sysadmin/it manager, and part time infosec specialist (if you guessed how, you’d probably be right). Big fan of linux/unix for the past 12 years or so, but have been tinkering with computers, trying to break things, and lurking the interwebs since the early 90s.
