    I have it set to block ALL cookies yet keep getting numerous within minutes, whereas i tried visit 5 same regular sites on firefox and each came up asking to be blocked or blocked?

    Is there any add-on for safari?

    Or is that just how it is?

    There is no reason to block all cookies, and doing so can cause some websites not to function properly. Don't worry about cookies. They're necessary.

    It makes no sense to cripple your browser from functioning properly. That's like saying you want to drive your car without the spark plugs. Cookies are required for most websites to function properly.

    I know I can set block cookies always in Safari.

    But if I click bock 3rd party & advertisers in safari, it does not work, whereas in firefox it will.

    This is my question, I do like safari but Im just wondering if Safari could block 3rd party aswell as firefox.

    This would be ideal.

    Your earlier posts sounded like you wanted to block all cookies. Blocking cookies from 3rd party & advertisers should work. What version of Safari are you running?
