  • Hi,

    you did not mention your windows and IE versions?

    Settings for document cookies can be found on the Privacy tab of Internet Options, and depending on your windows and IE versions, these settings vary.

    Also check that your browser settings for Tools>Tracking Protection are not blocking content.


    Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab, check "Always record developer console messages". Save your changes...

    Then when you open your web page, display the dev tool(f12)>Console tab, any blocked content from Tracking Protection will be listed in the Console and (a blue circle icon with a line through it appears in the Address bar (rhs)).

    You  can also view request header contents from Networking tab of the dev tool.

    I think there is still an outstanding issue with 2 letter domains eg. . If possible please include links to any websites you are having problems with your questions.

  • Hi Rob,

    thank you for detailed explanation. The problem occurs in IE11 on windows 7 and windows 8.1. 

    The tracking protection is not blocking the cookie.

    I have a problem only if i use 2 letter domain ( in this case, but the problem occurs for any 2 letter domain).

    As soon i use three letter domain the cookie is accepted.

    I think i have a problem described in:  question 6. Do you know if there is a solution to this problem?
