Firefox will not set cookies when using Tor

I am running Tor over Firefox 3.6.17 and am unable to log into a Tor based forum. The message I get is "it appears you have logged in however no cookie was set." I have the allowed set cookies in my permissions menu under page source and have added a page exception to my options. Is there any other way to get my browser to set cookies?

For some reason you picked 'tor client' as the component here. No wonder nobody answered.

Sounds like maybe you didn't configure your Torbutton to allow cookies? Or maybe you weren't using Torbutton?

In any case, Tor Browser Bundle is the recommended way to be using Tor these days, and I bet you'll find it more fun than trying to wrestle your own browser into doing this.

Closing. If you need more support, see
