So, I have a complex problem. A java applet reads a file. However this file is really a php script, content generated by information on the web page. (Since you can't send info directly to an applet.)

I use javascript write a cookie, and the php script reads that cookie to send info to the applet. It worked great, except for my boss. It appears that she uses the latest Firefox with third party cookies disabled. Safari works great in this mode. The script, applet, and source are all in the same directory- so why does Firefox treat the applet as a third party? Is there anyway around this without asking the customers to change their preferences.
