Select “Options” from the drop-down menu.

Click “Custom” under the “Standard” option. This is where the magic happens!
Now you have full control over which trackers and scripts to block. Uncheck the box next to “Cookies” to allow all types, including those previously excluded (the cross-site tracking cookies).
To specify in which cases cookies should be blocked, check the box next to “Cookies”. Then click on the arrow to open the drop-down menu and select the option that best suits your needs.
To completely disable cookies, select “All Cookies.” However, we do not recommend doing this unless you are troubleshooting browser problems, and even then we recommend that you clear your browser’s cache and cookies first.

How to enable / disable cookies in Firefox on mobile
To enable cookies in Firefox on Android, iPhone or iPad, tap the hamburger menu in the lower right corner.
Scroll down to the “Privacy” section and hit “Tracking protection.”
Unfortunately, iOS and iPadOS settings aren’t as flexible as desktop and Android (which are the same). On your iPhone or iPad, your only choices are “Standard” or “Strict,” which both block trackers for multiple websites.
To allow all types of cookies, turn on “Improved tracking protection.”
At this writing, there is not a built-in way to completely disable cookies in Firefox on iPhone or iPad.
