    How to detect and block tracking cookie

    Due to some strange behavior of my PC. i guess that i have some tracking cookie on my system or my browser. I am not much sure about it but i hope the behavior of my PC is the cause of this. I want to know how can i detect this tracking cookie ? And if found, how can i block them on my browser ? Please help. I am using Firefox as my default browser.

    2. From the Tools menu, select 'Option' at the bottom of Tools Menu.
