I went a bit paranoid recently, and I disabled all cookies in Firefox. I'm manually allowing them for sites that I find worthy.

Then I decided to sync my bookmarks to the Firefox on my phone. (Yeah.) Even though I enabled cookies manually for about:accounts, Firefox still says that

Cookies and local storage are required.

Cookies are still disabled

The question would be: for what site would I need to grant cookie rights for Firefox sync being able to work?


It doesn't really answer the part about which site's cookies do I need, but apparently signing in to Firefox sync works with the settings described above, only signing up doesn't. Therefore the only thing I needed was to register in another browser without the cookie restrictions (which is the case on my phone as I can't manage cookies one by one there), and then sign in to Firefox sync on my desktop, and it just worked.
