How do I enable cookies?

In Netscape:

  1. Select 'Edit' from the top of your browser and then from the resultant list: choose 'Preferences'.
  2. A wee box should pop up. Over at the left hand side of this box is a list of categories. One of these is called 'advanced'. Click on this so that it becomes highlighted.
  3. The right hand side of the box should change and at the bottom of the page is a section on cookies. You should check the 'Accept all cookies' option. You can also choose to be asked about each cookie in turn, but I found this to be a real pain as you get asked so many times!


  1. Go to "Tools" then "Preferences" and a new window will open.
  2. On the left there will be a list of options. Select "Privacy"
  3. Tick the box that says "Enable Cookies"
  4. "Accept all cookies" should be selected in the "Normal cookies" drop-down list.
  5. Click "Apply" then "OK"


  1. If you go to "Tools" and then "Options" a new window opens.
