The pref is 'network.cookie.cookieBehavior', and it looks like we don't have a default which means we accept all cookies, including from 3rd party advertisers (see bug 818340). We should define this, and also we should consider adding a pref flyout option for it.
Perhaps I'm missing something? Why would the default behavior on Metrofox be different from normal?

The default looks ok actually, I just checked and it's set to 3 in all.js. So this bug is more about offering the user a pref to change the default.
The default in libpref/src/init/all.js is network.cookie.cookieBehavior=3 ("limitForeign"). Metro Firefox uses this default, so we currently have the same default as desktop Firefox, which I think is what we want. I think the only change we need to make (if any) is to add a visible pref for third-party cookie behavior in the Options flyout panel.
Summary: Define cookie behavior for metrofx → Expose third-party cookie behavior pref in metrofx
We are not adding cookie management to Metro Firefox any time soon.
