    Since my rather traumatic upgrade from my old G4 to our 5 year old G5, my cookies are not working.

    That means every time I come here or to 500 other forums I visit, I have to type in my username and password manually, and it's driving me nuts! Any ideas? I've got the basic cookies functions turned on in Firefox3.

    Safari doesn't have the same problem, but Safari is incompatible for working nicely with blogger so no-can-do given how often I blog.

    I haven't had any of those issues with FF3. You might want to double check your preferences to see if you are blocking cookies (make sure to check the exceptions list as well), which is under the Privacy section. At the bottom there's also some settings concerning clearing private data automatically you can check on. Also, look at the Security section to see if you have it set to remember passwords for you.
