I am trying to create an html page, saved on my computer, that has the same code as gmail's login page (I just copied and pasted the source code).
What I want to do, is enter my login information on my local machine, and have it send the POST to google and log me in.
Every time I submit the form from my local html file, google redirects me to a page which says my browsers cookies are not enable (they definately are). When I login from their actual site, it works fine.
At first I thought, maybe it just doesnt work that way, but when I tried the same method with Aol and Yahoo's login, the local html file worked fine in logging me in.
I may be wrong but offline cookies are disabled by default for security reasons.
You can activate it via Windows Control Panel. Go the Control Panel --> User Accounts
and then go to the Change User Account Control Settings.
A window titled "User Account control Settings" appears (Windows 7).
And set the lowest notification level.
