I thought I was pretty smart when I choose not to accept ANY cookies from anywhere in my Firefox browser. Then I went into Exceptions and choose which sites I wanted cookies either blocked or allowed.

Perfect.....right??? That way I shouldn't get any cookies I don't want at all and the correct ones will be either allowed or blocked.

For some reason when I run my spyware program I am still getting no-name shit cookies that are not a part of my block/allow list. Technically, I shouldn't be getting these no-name cookies.....right?

Can someone please explain?

Other than checking to make sure when you white list a website it's just not accepting other cookies that end up on the website. However, in all honesty, these things are harmless and would only affect what ads pop-up, so I wouldn't worry about them.

And if you're concerned about your privacy, you're doing it wrong anyway.
