Default Using Firefox?

I am trying to use Firefox as my browser for Photo Camel. My problem is that I do not get a "accept cookies? " message so I can only view the very basic non-subscriber view. I get asked about cookies from other sites and I accept and have no problem. What am I missing?
Thanks
James

Wish I could help, but I use Firefox myself and have never had it ask me to accept cookies.

Click on tools, then options, then security, then check "accept cookies" etc. be sure to click "ok" after your set up.

The move George R suggests works and accepts all cookies. I leave that box unchecked and set an exception so Firefox will take cookies from Camel (and anyone else I set as an exception). Copy the URL from any Camel page and paste that into the exception page box that asks for acceptable URL's. Firefox will keep only the first part of the URL which will them appear below in the exception list making it easy to delete if you later decide not to accept the cookies. Some sites (like eBay) use a different URL for cookies than for other pages so you will need to use George R's method there or use IE for that site.

I use FireFox and Opera simultaniously (2 yahoo mail acounts requires 2 different browsers to simultanously view both accounts)

So far I am pretty impressed with Opera, though I still prefer FireFox

IE is such a foul bug catcher's net! I remove it from the Windows I install on my customer's computers.

Cheers,
Craig

I'd do as Dougsmit says he does it. Accept from known sources...I doubt that anybody actually removes IE from their system (they just think they do)...and doing so would make some programs NOT work correctly or at least cripple part of their features.

It can be done using Nlite. The IE core stays so those apps still work.

I've been fixing PCs for many years.

I use FF but have run across some sites that won't work with it so I have to use IE. Capitol One is one.

So have I. And you can't remove IE from your Customers computers, when you know it is still there....

You too? Oh I know your misery!

Do you use Nlite?

I am not IT, more like a garage mechanic but with 10 years exp.

I make a very skinny XP SP3 that works a treat, here is my lastsession.ini, try it in a virtualPC

All my customers dig it.

Programs that require IE are typically replaceable anyway, like McAfee and such, that is garbage-ware. I install Avast.

Anyway, that's been my experience so far. Of course your results may vary.

Have fun!
Craig
