User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

The sites, www.bestbuy.com,www.hotmail.com,www.monster.com, are just a few that
will not bring up the web pages because the sites are reading my cookies as not
being enabled. I have gone into the Cookie Manager and enabled all cookies,
there are no checks in any of the Mail & Newsgroup boxes, emptied the cookie
folder, exited the browser, and gone back to the site. None of this helps and I
could not find anything of help in looking at the other users who have this
problem. I use Mozilla over a broadband connection at work and a dial-up at
home, and I get the same error page at both locations.
If I try to use Mozilla at Launch.com to look at videos or listen to the radio,
I receive an error message saying that I need to use Netscape4.7 or better.
Which version of Netscape is Mozilla1.4 comparable to?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open browser and enable all cookies
2.Go to WWW.BESTBUY.COM
3.Read erroneous cookie message

Actual Results:  
Erroneous messages about cookies or compatability.

Expected Results:  
Opened the site and allowed me to navigate normally.
As for Launch.com, I should have been able to view any and all material at the
site including videos.
Do you block setting of cookies via JS in "Scripts and Plugins" preferences?

just like bz says, check that first. and now, i'm dumping my standard checklist
here. ;)

Please do the following:
 
1) check your cookie and javascript preferences
(Edit->Prefs->Privacy&Security->Cookies and Edit->Prefs->Advanced->Scripts&Plugins)
 
2) check that you're not blocking cookies from the site (the 'cookie sites' tab
under Tools->Cookie Manager)
 
3) if the above look okay, generate a cookie log for the site (instructions for
windows can be found at http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=193951#c1,
same idea on linux), and attach it here.
 
thanks!
no response from reporter ever, these sites work for me in Firefox and Seamonkey.

Please reopen if the problem can be recreated using dwitte's steps (including
the cookie log)
