I've found a couple of sites that want to set cookies in order for their online
shop to work.  I have Mozilla 1.4 rc1 set to accept all cookies but the sites
respond saying cookies are not being accepted.

I get a similar effect at but cannot provide secure
serial numbers to access the site.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Access
2. Enter a search item in the Quick Search box at top of screen - press enter to
start search

Actual Results:  
Error screen returned stating cookies not being accepted.

Expected Results:  
Accepted cookie and displayed search results.

This could conceivably be an Evangelism issue but since a similar issue has
arisen on more than one site I'm submitting it in case there is a need for
further investigation.

This works for me, on linux 2003061108.
What exactly are your preferences in privacy&security, cookies? Are you sure
that the site is not in the list of blocked sites? (tools->cookie
manager->manage stored cookies)

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
