AFAIK, no. If you want to allow only selected current-session cookies, but no
persistent cookies ever, you could create a cookies file under ~/.netscape (eg
touch ~/.netscape/cookies) then set ultra-restrictive file permissions (eg
chmod 000 ~/.netscape/cookies). That way you have the option of selectively
allowing cookies which will not persist beyond the current browsing session.
