Hi Larry,


I am using IE8. I changed my privacy settings to:

'Override automatic cookie handline' and I marked "Prompt" under both First-party and Third-party Cookies.


When I go to any www.'website'.com I get a Privacy Alert message.


But when I run Script 9.1 as http://localhost/view_settings.php, it proceeds with no alerts, warnings, or prompts, and goes right to a page showing my choices.


I tried substituting your script from the downloads, just to find if it was an error in my script, but I got the same results.


(I wanted to try it in FireFox,[version 3.6.17] but I was unable to find the options I needed in the privacy settings tab... )


Any suggestions?

I run firefox 5.0 but it should in options > privacy > history > "use custom settings for history" (This may be a drop down box saying either 'remember history', 'never remember history' or 'use custom settings'.


Then you can change your cookie preferences ;)

I forget whether I explicitly say this in the book or not (I believe I do), but some browsers, and by some I think I just mean IE, won't prompt for cookies when running sites on localhost. This is in a tip, I believe.
