Safari 5.1 Lion


Can someone please confirm the following (very unfortunate) behavior?


1) Check the option "Block cookies from 3rd parties and advertisers"

2) Visit any major site (CNN, CNET, etc.)

3) 3rd party cookies and tracking data is still acquired from doubleclick, etc. despite step #1


In other words, Safari 5.1 does not seem to be blocking third party cookies. I have seen other threads documenting this. What's worse is that "removing all website data" (Preferences | Privacy tab) *also* deletes your extension preferences. ***?


Chrome and Firefox separate "local data" (extension prefs and site offline storage) from cookie/tracking data. Safari is no longer an option to me until this is fixed.
