We might want to copy (or at least understand) the high level concept logic behind cookie handling of other leading browsers. Create a wiki linked spreadsheet or CSS table displaying color coded cookie features and defaults.

Example use case

Question: Should we consider JS popups to be child windows (thus 3rd party context) or instantiate new DOMs for them (thus 1st party context?)
Answer: All other browsers consider them child windows so we should as well.

Some (like here or there) are commenting about Safari's third party cookie control, whose logic could be relevant.

No need for those tickets on our side anymore as Mozilla implemented double-keying of cookies which we ship in 7.0a3 when we switch to ESR 52.
