Google-chrome – Why would Chrome/IE not persist cookies but Firefox works just fine

cookiesfirefoxgoogle-chromeinternet explorer

A user of our application has IE8, Chrome 15 and Firefox 8.

When the user logs into our application (or any web application that uses cookies to persist the login state) with Chrome or IE, they are immediately redirected to the login page. However, this works fine in Firefox.

I've triple-checked Chrome's cookie/content settings including re-installing and blowing away the profile, but nothing works. The user was working fine in Chrome on this past Friday.

It is nothing specific to our application because all sites that use cookies do not work for the user.

Is there something that IE and Chrome share for content settings or is there some other issue?

Are you 100% sure you deleted the Cookie folder, and that it was for the right user on the system?
