What's the difference between "temporary" and "session" when allowing cookies with the CookieSafe addon in Firefox?

What's the difference between "temporary" and "session" when allowing cookies with the CookieSafe addon in Firefox?

Session is "until the browser is closed", right? But what does it mean then to allow cookies "temporarily"?

"""Allow example.com for session"" allows the site to set cookies for the current and all future sessions. Every time you open Firefox, the site will be allowed to set cookies.
""Temporarily allow example.com"" allows the site to set cookies for the current session only. The next time you open Firefox, that site will not be allowed to set cookies.

In both cases, the cookies are deleted each time Firefox is closed."

"These are permissions for a site to store cookies for this site in Firefox.

""Allow for session"" means that the said site is allowed to store cookies for this invocation of firefox. Cookies are still kept after Firefox is closed, and are used if you launch Firefox again (however the site won't be able to store new ones).

""Allow"" means that the said site will always be able to store any cookies it likes."
