    What Firefox Addon's or other software will do a good job of blocking Tracking Cookies with little or no user interaction while having Firefox sandboxed?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Blocking 3rd party cookies is a simple way to block 90%+ of tracking cookies.

    And Better Privacy blocks all the Flash cookies,as does Noscript.

    ... if the respective site is not whitelisted in Noscript and, consequently, flash is blocked. For whitelisted sites Noscript cannot block flash cookies. Thus, you still need BetterPrivacy or you change the settings of your flash player.

    I was informed that AdMuncher blocks these tracking cookies but everytime I clean my history I see several. Maybe AdMucher just blocks their tracking mechanism? Beats me. If these tracking cookies are "blocked" should they still appear when I clean my internet history?

    TrackerBlock (I've never tried it because I do what funkydude recommends)
