wfm winxp 2003302810 trunk. I see you're using Mozilla 1.3 alpha, can you try with Mozilla 1.3 to see if it is still a problem ?
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 I know I'm using an old and outdated build (and a non-supported OS), but if I go to http://www.usps.com/all/shop i end up in a page that tells me "File or Page Requested Not Found" Following the link at "buy stamps and shop" in the left upper corner at http://www.usps.com/all/welcome.htm takes me to http://www.usps.com/buy/welcome.htm From there everything seems to work OK.
WorksForMe using FizzillaMach/2003032808. Tom, are you absolutely certain you don't have any cookies blocked from that site? Try testing using a new Mozilla user profile.
Sorry for the delay, I was on a trip. Yesterday I upgraded to: Mozilla 1.4a Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401 I tried accessing the site again and got the same problem. I looked into my cookies and found: shop.usps.com site can set cookies So it's still a problem on my system. ------ Following Comment #2 from Stefan, I also get to http://www.usps.com/buy/welcome.htm but if I click on "Buy Stamps Online Now!" I get the same error page as before.
I created a new user profile and that worked. Then I went back to my original profile and found that I had blocked cookies. So I added http://www.usps.com/ which shows up as www.usps.com on the list of allowed popups. This did not help. I then allowed popups, quit and restarted mozilla and it STILL does not help. So some setting in my profile is not allowing access. What that is is not obvious and so there is a user help bug at minimum on this one. (That is, one can't figure out what's wrong by oneself.)
Tom, since it sounds like Mozilla works fine at the site using a new profile, there probably isn't a Mozilla bug, here. There must be some setting somewhere that's blocking the cookies for that site. You'll just need to keep looking until you find it. Resolving this bug WFM per comment 5. Tom, if you do manage to find some actual bug, please file a new bug report.

Greg: I don't have any Stored Cookes for shop.usps.com or www.usps.com. www.usp.com was set not to allow cookies. I removed that. It did not help. Do I need to restart mozilla to make this work? It's very confusing. I removed all cookie sites, a rather drastic measure. That failed. I restarted Mozilla. It still failed. I removed all cookies, also a rather drastic measure (but I don't care as much). That failed. I now have no cookies and no sites set. Now you tell me where to look!!! Getting desperate, I cleared my cache and restarted mozilla. It failed again!! I had allowed popups - I remove the allowal. It failed. Since I can't locate the place THAT IS A BUG!! I'm stuck. Please tell me what to do next. From my viewpoint this bug is not resolved. I do NOT want to have to wipe my entire user profile out every time some silly site has trouble with cookies! That will be enough for me to abandon Mozilla.
I am now having trouble with access to http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A34859-2003Apr24.html I wiped out ALL cookies and I cleared ALL cookie sites. It still objected that I didn't have cookies in netscape. I then allowed cookies from this site and it STILL DID NOT. When I switch profiles, I got in. There is a SERIOUS PROBLEM HERE. Something about the state of Mozilla IS NOT ACCESSABLE. That is a BUG. Please do not expect me to "find" it - I have done all the obvious things. Switching profiles is NOT acceptable because all my Moz settings, and my bookmarks are not in the other profile.
