Cross-Site Scripting, 3rd-party cookies

I'm having trouble understanding a couple of things, and this is the most resourceful place I can think of for answers.
2) Third-Party cookies are, so I thought, cookies that come from a site other than the one your browser is pointed to. For example when you visit www.example.com, they may have an image on their page that comes from someothersite.com, and which is trying to store a cookie on your browser. These cookies are the main source for tracking one's internet habits, right? So why, when I disable third-party cookies in my browser, are these still being propagated unless I install an add-on such as DonotTrackMe? Am I perhaps missing the mechanics of how these cookies are delivered? I have read many good privacy tracking articles, but I can't seem to make the connection between what I consider to be a third-party cookie and what my browser considers to be one.
