    I have IE and if I set my First Party and Third Party Cookies to ASK ME or BLOCK I can not get onto any WebSite.

    I thought if I had them Set to ASK ME when I hit ALLOW after it asks me at every WebSite I could have it keep a list of what WebSites I will allow Cookies.

    Well it does ask me and if I click Yes or Allow it does not work.
    The Massage Box just Blinks and comes Back.

    So I had to Set my First Party and Third Party Cookies to ALLOW in the Settings.

    So every WebSite works good now.

    Now when I am doen on the Internet and I go to Tools and Delete History a screen opens.
    The one check Box says Delete Cookies and WebSite Data.

    Will this Delete my First Party Cookies and Third Party Cookies?

    First party cookies are necessary in order for you to be recognised as an individual.
    Any site that you login to as an individual requires a way of identifying you as “you”.... Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, online banking, ebay, Amazon, etc.
    So you should have first party cookies set to Allow.

    Blocking third party cookies shouldn't have any adverse effect on surfing the internet.
    I don't use IE that much but have just checked my settings...

    Have never had any problems with these settings.

    Basically... yes it will.
    Make sure that box is not ticked.

    First party allow. Third party blocked. Ask gets to be a real pain. No trouble on websites. I have an addon where I can look at the cookies I want to keep and save them and when I close the browser, all other first party cookies are removed. I've done it this way for a decade or longer.
