I have disabled cookies, but have allowed certain sites with login and preferences to set cookies via the 'exceptions' dialogue (eg. nytimes.com, slashdot.org, mozilla.org). This works on all sites but www.gmail.com. Even though I have allowed that site to set cookies via an exception, I still recieve an error message from the site informing me that cookies must be enabled. Is this a problem with Firefox, or a problem with Gmail. If it is a problem with Gmail, let me know and I shall file a bug with them instead. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Disable cookies by unchecking the 'allow sites to set cookies' in the preferences dialog. 2. Under 'exceptions,' add www.gmail.com and set to 'allow' 3. Finally, try to log into gmail and Actual Results: Gmail reports that cookies must be enabled: " Your browser's cookie functionality is turned off. Please turn it on." Expected Results: Gmail should have logged in and set whatever coookies it needed.
gmail.com does not set any cookies. google.com, www.google.com, and gmail.google.com, do. Marking invalid.
sorry for bugspam, long-overdue mass reassign of ancient QA contact bugs, filter on "beltznerLovesGoats" to get rid of this mass change
