OUTDATED: This information on cookies is no longer relevant

We're pretty sure none of our users is running Netscape Navigator. To anyone who may be: our condolences.

If eSnipe displays a message which says that "Your entry timed out...," even though you responded promptly to the instructions on the preceding page, your browser is probably set to refuse cookies.

If you're using Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer, follow the appropriate set of instructions below. If you're using some other type of Web browser, see your browser's documentation or help file for assistance.

After you've set your browser to accept cookies, return to the instructions for joining eSnipe and proceed.

To make Netscape Navigator accept cookies

  • Pull down the Edit menu and select the Preferences command.
  • Click the "Advanced" category in the Preferences dialog.
  • Click "Accept all cookies" or "Accept only cookies that get sent back to the originating server." (We recommend the latter setting, which provides a little more protection against Web sites that use cookies in questionable ways.)
  • We do not recommend checking "Warn me before accepting a cookie." This option offers additional protection, but it makes some Web sites generate so many warnings that they become very difficult to use.
