I've heard some talk of this, but I'd like to a better way to reject particular cookies. When prompted to accept a cookie I'd like the option to a) Accept it b) Reject it c) Accept all cookies from this server d) Reject all cookies from this server (or with this name from this server)

I had heard some rumblings about a very fine grained security scheme for Mozilla in which you could accept/reject certain features based on the attributes of the page (e.g. don't accept window.open()'s, don't download images, etc.), but I haven't heard much about it since then.

I can do something similar in IE5's "Security Zones", but it's not very fine grained (you only get 4 zones to play with - Internet, Intranet, Trusted, Restricted).
