    Most cookies are useful in web browsing. Some cookies lasts only until you close your browser. Whether you choose to allow cookies, or not allow, you can always make exceptions, but when you click the Exceptions button. You can not enter a web address (the URL of the site you want to block or allow) and select Block, Allow for Session (allow up to close and reopen Firefox) or Allow. You can also remove any site from the list.
