In Firefox, on the menu bar, go to Tools>>Options>>Privacy>>Cookies and make sure the 'Enable cookies' box is unchecked.
How would I go about getting things setup as you have?
For Java, Tools>>Options>>Web Features. Uncheck the Java and Java script boxes and in the 'Advanced' section, uncheck all the boxes except the last one.
Also, make sure the Block Pop-ups box is checked.
These settings can be changed at any time you requre Java and cookies.

Sure, it's a trade-off, but it's one sure way to kill web-bugs if you are worried.
I wouldn't do that with the images. A lot of sites load their images from a different server, mine included.
On the other hand, I would allow cookies but only for current session and for originating site.
Another privacy tweak would be to disable referrers, but again there are trade-offs between functionality and privacy/security.
