I finally took the plunge and disabled all third-party cookies. Because.

There must be a list of sites who unsolicitedly set cookies. I do *not* consent to them being set on every web site.

HOWTO normalize the web a little by disallowing third-party cookies in Firefox:

1. Open `about:preferences#privacy` > History
2. Set Firefox to *use your own history settings*
3. Accept cookies from websites > Accept cookies from third-party websites > set to *never*

@zyabin101 i remember using a similar option in chromium, where, as a result, it broke logging into the steam website. let's see if it works here...

Next, for security reasons you must remove *all* cookies. This includes all logins to all services, so have your password store and second-factor device at ready.

4. Show cookies > Remove all

Next, re-login to services.

As a final step, there must be an adblock list for cookie prompts - these are a symptom that the website is maliciously tracking you.
