Is it really necessary to have over 50 cookies for cnet pages? In both firefox and chrome I signed out, erased all cookies, then signed in again and went to a single CNET page. Chrome ended up with 50 cookies and Firefox had 5 more. In addition, Firefox reports some cookies are requiring TLS handshake with encryption (which is probably what's slowing and messing up firefox connections to cnet up). The worst are the cookies starting with "fly_ " of which there's a number of them.
