    Browser unable to save cookies?

    I have both FF11 and IE10. For some websites I do allow cookies to be saved. I seems I can't do this for either browser with my 32bit Win8 Consumer preview. Is there some windows setting that is controlling this? In FF options there is no mention of cookies anywhere, except for one check box labeled "Tell sites I don't want to be tracked".

    For Internet Explorer you need Internet Options/Privacy/Advanced. If you want more control use an addon. I use Cookie Controller with firefox, I'm sure there are similar things for IE.

    Out of interest, when you say "I seems I can't do this for either browser with my 32bit Win8 Consumer preview" do you mean cookies aren't being stored at all or is it that they're being deleted, after you've asked them to be saved?
