Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040313 Firefox/0.8.0+ WFM: On yahoo.com I was able to sign on with no problem.
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040309 I have multiple yahoo accounts. Some yahoo accounts ALWAYS succeed, others ALWAYS fail. It is entirely reproduceable and depends on the account, not on the version of mozilla I use (ranging from 1.4 to 1.6). I assume that this means it has something to do with the content of the cookie itself. Even the accounts that I can login with and read mail with, I cannot access adult content: 1) login 2) read mail 3) try to access an adult profile 4) get prompted to confirm I want to access an adult page 5) answer yes 6) goto step 4 I mention this only as an example of a cookie that appears account-independent that just won't stick. Works fine under IE 6.0 and Netscape Navigator 4.79.
unable to reproduce with either of my Yahoo accounts on 2004041608 1.7 branch seamonkey build on XP. Also tested firefox trunk build 20040413.
