Affiliate Cookies and IE8 RTM
Affiliate cookies are being blocked by IE8

 11:20 pm on Nov 12, 2009 (gmt 0)

I don't know if this is a new update with IE8, but today none of my affiliate cookies are dropping on IE8. It doesn't matter if it is a third-party or a first-party cookie, it is being blocked.

What are the workarounds for this? Doing an iFrame and loading the merchant's page and dropping the cookie doesn't work as it doesn't see that as a first-party cookie. If I do the test on my own site that has an affiliate program, it works as the domain matches the cookie without an iFrame.

I am at PubCon right now and while this may be due to the cobwebs from the parties, what I am seeing with the cookies being blocked is causing major stress.

I'm seeing the same.

Well, that's good that I'm not losing my mind, but bad as this is going to dig into commissions. I wonder why this issue hasn't been raised yet.

I would like to hear more about this.

I have some third party cookies being blocked but they all have a correct P3P.

But it's not always, just sometimes. And you know what? clearing the cache solves the problem. But that's not a solution.

I believe IE8 is doing something wrong with the P3P protocol and sometimes blocking when it shouldn't.
