reportBreakage label for ThirdPartyCookies is incorrect if the user has recently changed their cookieBehavior but not refreshed the page.

set network.cookie.cookieBehavior to 4
visit a page with some third party tracking cookies (
change network.cookie.cookieBehavior to 0
toggle back to that page, open the control center, click "report a problem", and send the report.

The report contains "nocookiesblocked" instead of "cookierestrictions".

Until you refresh that page it will be reporting the new value, though the page is affected by the old value. Other reportBreakage labels report the state of the page, not the state of the pref.
