Sounds just like bug 485194, where the verdict was "allow all yahoo.com cookies". Are you blocking any cookies?

This showed up recently in the forums too, with the same solution, so it seems very likely that it's the same issue. If you are not blocking any yahoo.com cookies, and have your general cookie prefs set to allow all cookies by default, then please re-open this.

This is NOT resolved, it is not a duplicate and no cookies are blocked.

To be very clear, since this is a common point of misunderstandings in debugging cookie-related issues, are *both* of the following true?
1) In the Privacy pane "Accept cookies from any site" is selected
2) If you go into "Edit Exceptions List...", there are no results at all when searching for "yahoo"

If so, please test with a clean profile, using this utility:

You know what?  There are other browsers - I don't have the time to deal with all these problems.  I accept cookies from any site and there are no exceptions at all. I don't have the time to "pimpmycamino."

We can't reproduce this, so without being able to do any investigation via follow-up questions, closing.

If you do decide to use Camino again in the future, please understand that it's very rare that we can make progress on a bug report without the reporter being willing to do follow-up debugging, and take that into consideration before filing more bugs.
