Cookies for Mac

Postby Jaymz » Thu 2 Feb 2006 20:45 GMT

Anyone with a Mac will need to do this to solve cookie issues.

I just had the same cookie problem as someone else who just posted. Something about item in browser being too long.

Anyhow, here are the 3 main Mac browser programs and how to deal with cookies.

Also, I can't seem to Personally Message anyonem it keeps saying user not found! Even when I use the special 'Personal Message' button on their posts.

Many thanks, Jaymz! I'll make this a sticky so that it stays up top with the Windoze/IE cookie dance posting.
