IE Cookie Disable Issue. RRS feed

  • Question

  • While testing a site with IE(any version), we were disabling/enabling the cookies from the privacy settings tab. But this not does seem to work as expected. (for the first time it worked, and from then on,it stopped working).Chrome and Firefox seem to work fine though.

    the code/logic we have written to check if cookies are enabled/disabled is as follows:

    We try to create a test cookie using document.cookie. If the cookie can be created, then we say the cookies are enabled,else they are disabled. The problem in IE is, if the cookies are enabled, we are unable to create the test cookie/if they are disabled, we are able to create the test cookie. (It happens both the ways).

    any thoughts/ideas?
