If I visit blort.com, and they include a reference to ads.blort.com (an alias for ads.mfers.com), will the browser still happily include that cookie in requests to ads.blurble.com (another alias for ads.mfers.com)? If it does, that seems a blatant and obvious hole to plug in the browser.

If not, then the difference between third and first party cookies in this case means nothing. The data that mfers.com aggregates via that cookie is entirely from blort.com, and they have no idea that I even visit blurble.com.

What is the name of this alternative method? I looked at the features on the Keepass website, and the only thing that sounds close is AutoType.

Luckily the source is available, and checking the source for 2.20.1 shows that the Linux version of AutoType uses xdotool, and the Windows version uses the SendInput functions. I'll be surprised if these are somehow invulnerable to keyloggers.

Did you read your post, where you claimed you couldn't run anything that didn't come from the app store? Just in case you forgot:

by default you are not allowed to install programs that don't come from the app store

You don't need to change any behaviour to run/install signed apps that DON'T come from the app store. If you download something from the app store, it is signed. The reverse is not necessarily true. This is what the previous poster was trying to point out.
