I had some effects like this with other prefs.
Could you please try:
your prefs are saying that cookies are enabled so 
- disable them, close prefs, reopen prefs, are they shown as disabled?
you could try to access the website now, to verify they are disabled or just go
on to next step:
- enable them, close prefs, reopen prefs, are cookies shown as enabled?

You can´t do this with Tools/CookieManager because it gives you only one option
to select from Block or Unblock, the other is greyed out.
But you can verfify that these offer corresponds to the settings you find in
Please report your findings, wether that helps, or not.

Repeated all procedures indicated below, and the problem persists.  Turning on 
and off the cookies as indicated below to no avail. I have been forced to use 
ie when going to that site which is quite often, a really not a convinient 
manner of operating. please look into it. thanks

cookies enabled limited lifetime of cookiea to current session

javascript is enabled for Navigator, scripts are not allowed to do anything, 
plug ins are enabled for mail and newsgroups

uh, scripts aren't allowed to do anything?

try allowing scripts to "create or change cookies" and "read cookies". you'll
need that enabled for a lot of sites to work with cookies correctly.

While I'm here, I'll just ask:

We seen to get a lot of these bugs for different sites, should we change the
summary to make this easier to spot somehow?
