  • Managing Cookies Site-By-Site Using Netscape (older versions may vary)

    To control cookies on a site-by-site basis:

         1. Open the Tasks menu, choose Privacy and Security, and then choose Cookie Manager.
         2. Choose "Unblock Cookies from this Site" or "Block Cookies from this Site."

    When you are warned (while browsing) that a web site is requesting to set a cookie, you can click Yes to allow or No to deny the cookie. You can also select the option for your browser to "Remember this decision."

    If you select "Remember this decision," you will not be warned the next time that site tries to set or modify a cookie, and your "yes" or "no" response will still be in effect.

    If you wish to change a remembered response later, use Cookie Manager to edit your list of automatically stored cookies.

    To stop automatically accepting cookies from a site:

      1. Open the Tasks menu, choose Privacy and Security, then choose Cookie Manager.
      2. Choose View Stored Cookies from the submenu. The Cookie Manager window opens with a list of all the cookies stored on your computer.
      3. Click the Cookie Sites tab. The web sites for which you have allowed or denied cookies are listed.
      4. Click to select the site from which you no longer want to accept cookies, and then click Remove Cookie. The next time you visit that site, you will be warned if the site attempts to set a cookie.
