When I attempt to login to www.nytimes.com, the site will either ignore my login
or complain that I don't have cookies enabled. I have "Enable all cookies" set
in the Cookies section of Privacy & Security in the Preferences panel. I don't
know if this is nytimes.com problem or mozilla problem

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Register for free at nytimes.com
2. Try to login
3. Observe on upper right side, the site hasn't recognized your login OR
3a. Try to access an article see: "In order to access NYTimes.com, your Web
browser must accept cookies"

Actual Results:  
Accessing article causes a login/password prompt. After entering user/password
pair see: "In order to access NYTimes.com, your Web browser must accept cookies"

Expected Results:  
I should have been able to read the article

Discovered cookies were blocked "site cannot set cookies" for nytimes.com when
looking at the "Cookie sites" in the Cookie manager. Cleared the site and now I
can use www.nytimes.com as expected. I don't know how this value got set in the
cookie manager, however.
