2003032804 trunk As requested in bug 198870, here are the cookie prefs from my prefs.js: --- user_pref("network.cookie.cookieBehavior", 1); user_pref("network.cookie.lifetime.enabled", true); ---

This seems to be the interresing part: 0: ===== COOKIE NOT ACCEPTED ===== 0: request URL: http://us.f101.mail.yahoo.com/ym/ShowLetter?box=Inbox&MsgId=2430_1221327_9806_1183_1491_0_9412_2788_380228662&num=&Search=&YY=68489&order=down&sort=date 0: cookie string: YAB.Iemail=%2e; expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 22:00:00 GMT; path=/; domain=mail.yahoo.com YM.Gen=i=vaJ46Ur8iCyXC6SyhqziJRjpKxKgFiN6hllXsF1Ac8etmVAG_LciIPx19_c_0jQFKIR283p_FR4uMXiVezsp.cfHxy8GeBoZ8nRh_mPaScz7oFSFBCKDkuVAa3ImyepVnGJSuRxJ..QTBJ838hdrfiOmbsSDsDtK73cfuHBNjz60G6Po8DzphfuVNn.Un_O1q6NNNx9cd7ysDB_6ygZjHbm_Z6IQbCh5ktwWILX2pPg097eSQeSIL8d7ZxfNYuuBmS82LjtQfMES_jzNBZVUYFx3I4O0_tofePyHWqAJLsrSh3bRTNUkrLHPSowXIYrFC7Opoo2IvUJBg.1G1htXfVrBJwdmtpuxQsOQY37J.qWJpblaZL2wK9a66.NAbLN7WfWRD 0: current time: Fri Mar 28 16:00:50 2003 GMT 0: rejected because cookie has already expired Did we change the expire code? What does the spec say? It looks to me that this cookie was supposed to be a session cookie.
This started happening sometime this week. I've been using Mozilla to read Yahoo! mail for over two years. This is the first problem I've had. My JS cookie pref is that cookies can be read/stored/changed by JS. Changing the cookie site prefs has no effect. Do this to reproduce it for your own research. 1. Open a message in your Yahoo! Mail inbox. 2. Click the "Forward" button. 3. Insert an address from your Yahoo! address book using "Insert Contact" link. 4. Send mail. 5. Click on return to message link, in fact try getting back to your inbox any way you can think of because it ain't gonna happen.
confirmed, 2003032808 trunk. thanks for the detailed steps; sorry i wasn't able to reproduce it before! -> confirming, me smells like a cookie deletion bug.
yup, it's a cookie deletion bug. side-by-side comparison of a log from 1.3 and current trunk shows that yahoo sets a cookie in the message composition screen; when you finish there, it tries to expire it. there's a bug in the algo that searches for a previously set cookie, so current trunk doesn't find the previous cookie and ignores the already-expired cookie. this leaves the composition cookie sitting there, and breaks things horribly... one of the checks in cookie_FindPosition is in the wrong place; it should be outside an |if| block, not inside. fix is pretty trivial.
setting blocking1.4a? : this is a serious regression, because it prevents cookies from being updated/overwritten/force-expired in a reliable manner - many sites will depend on this behavior.
