Details

I found a cookie in the Cookie Manager that had been stored from the .co.uk top
level domain. I haven't tested to see if mozilla actually sends this back to all
.co.uk websites as I haven't got access to a suitable server at the moment. The
name of the cookie was "RMID", but I've no idea which organisation it came from.

It's possible that .com.au and other multiple top level domains are effected,
possibly even .com and .org etc.
Yes, the cookie will be sent to all hosts in the .co.uk domain.  This is an old 
problem that we have known about for some time and which, unfortunately, does 
not have any solution.  For all the gory details of why we can't fix it, see bug 
8743 and the discussion there about the .co.nz domain

You asked about .com and .org.  No, they are not affected -- the domain name 
must have at least two dots in it.
