Ive just realized both my ie8 and firefox3.5 are not accepting cookies even though they are enabled in both browsers. I tried to reinstall ff and added extended cookie manager addon for firefox and still no luck. Any sugestions would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have any firewall products blocking cookies perhaps?

icrediBill probably nailed it, but might I suggest checking settings once again and clearing cache in BOTH browsers AND \temp as well, rebooting, then trying again.

Exactly right, thnx. I had disabled all the services for ca firewall which i don't think it liked. Since i really didnt need it I uninstalled it now it works fine. just one more question though please. I've noticed lately i don't get the menubox with delete options after i close firefox anymore. I thought it was related to the cookie issue but it still happens while the cookie issue is resolved. Any thoughts. Thnx again.
