The cookie is being set from outside of Mail so I don't see why the cookie should be blocked. Also if the Browser isn't open, the Post doesn't work properly either if the above setting is set. (i.e. the Post data doesn't get read by the browser although it is sent -- I checked this using Live HTTP Headers). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a Post Form in a Mail Message which points to a web server 2. Have the Posted-to page try and set a cookie 3. Go to another page which trys to then read from the cookie Actual Results: Cookie value not set Expected Results: Cookie value should be set and readible
Option location should actually be Edit/Preferences/Privacy & Security/Cookies - I just can't spell :)
when you submit the form, does the response from the site load in the mail pane or in a new browser window? also, i don't see how the post behavior is affected by this pref, so i'll ignore that part :)
Response loads in Browser window (new if one not open or existing if one is open). I don't really see how the POST behaviour is related either but turning the setting off fixed the POST problem too so I guess may still be related (Perhaps if fix one first and then see what happens :) )
ok, then this might be valid... i wonder if the firstURI check is failing here, or perhaps the docshell walking? darin, what's the expected behavior in this case - would you expect the docshell walk to give APP_TYPE_MAIL here?
also, do you have a mail message testcase you can post here?
For what it is worth, when i have a plain-text email with a url to a page that sets a cookie, and i click the link, the "ask before storing a cookie" dialog pops up. That page is opened in a new window.
