This was supposed to be fixed by bug 252342 (in a way) - you can't place cookies anymore on co.uk, so there's anymore no reason to block these cookies. It's actually normal that blocking a cookie would also block the subdomains, since those subdomains would also receive the cookie anyway, if it weren't blocked.
You can't. I beg to differ. This all came about after I discovered two cookies on ".co.uk" domain in my Firefox cookies. Try this script, it will attempt to set a cookie on "co.uk" domain. http://wiki.jalakai.co.uk/tester499.php
in Firefox 2, yes it will. In Firefox 3 the cookie is not set. Regardless of whether we do or don't block .co.uk, the subdomain blocking is intentional. If you block a higher-level domain you must individually allow the subdomains within that domain for which you want cookies. This applies to all our facilities that use the "permission manager", such as image blocking and popup blocking/allowing.
