Visiting the URL while having the option "Ask me before storing cookies" checked
pops up a confirmation dialog for a couple of cookies. Checking the "Use my
choice for all cookies from this site" does not seem to have any effect,
reloading the page will result in the same cookie confirmation dialog.

This not only happens on that page but all pages that try to set cookies.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit site w/ "Ask me before storing cookies" option enabled in prefs
2. Deny cookies
3. Reload page

Actual Results:  
Cookie confirmation dialog came up again, altho I already stated I wanted to
block cookies from the site.

Expected Results:  
Not show cookie confirmation dialog, as I already blocked them for the site.

This has only showed up in very recent builds, eg. this week's nightlies AFAIK
seeing the same with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4a)

Same here on Linux rv:1.4a 2003032222.

Also possibly related; in the cookie manager all sites which in 1.3 could set
cookies have been switched to "site cannot set cookies" and vice versa. It seems
that the logic has been negated some where.

Fix fallouts

Permissions were added wron to the list when using the checkbox. Also reading
in was reversed. The header of the dialog was wrong too, and showed the host
part of the cookie, not the actual host (so could show instead if

Using Build 2003032222 on Linux, I couldn't login any more to and Even reverting to Mozilla 1.3 didn't help.

I checked which sites were allowed to set cookies and all sites were set to "not
allowed to set cookies".

After deleting these entries and deleting all cookies, login was
possible again.

Are you sure it is this bug that caused it?
Can you check the cookie manager, sites tab for any entries for ebay, and delete

enabled whenthe setting allows all cookies.

Just created new eBay account with 2003032404 (win32, Win98SE). Login works.

Lohphat: Try deleting all cookies, make sure you're not blocking anything with
"ebay" in the domain name (I had to allow bugs from various subdomains,
something like etc.), and maybe start with a new profile.

I had all kinda of problems with my bank, ebay, yahoo, etc with cookies over the
weekend with builds from the past few days at home. Using 2003032404 at office
now and things seem ok. Hope that will fix my home version too.

Pruging cookie list fixed eBay, but now having problems with PSoft8 at work.  

Comment 23

This is a real mess now. No cookies for me seem to be being remembered when I
deny them. continually asks for my permission.
Every new tab that opens has about 7 denies for the same cookies. I was using
the build from 3/19 and didn't have this problem. After loading the 3/24 build,
I am having this problem. 

I deleted my previous cookies for this site and still no help. The only thing I
haven't done is a complete cookie purge. I would prefer to not do that unless
someone is 100% certain that will fix this issue. Else, I am going back to 3/19.

Keep up the good work.
