The thing that is currently driving me nuts is that, when using Netscape 8.0 to "do eBay", every time I open a new tab off of the "My eBay" screen (or any other eBay screen, such as searches), it kicks me out to the sign-in screen. What is freaky (and irritating) is that if I click on those to open in a whole new window they pop right up, with no need to sign-in again! One would think that whatever cookie situation that was happening would recognize that I was SIGNED IN for the current Netscape window, but for some reason new tabs in the current window aren't recognized, but NEW WINDOWS are.
Since when "doing eBay" I might have a dozen or so items open at any given time, this is a royal pain in the ass. I've written both eBay and Netscape about this but haven't heard squat from either, and I can't find any controls in the browser that look like they might improve things if I messed around with them.
Is anybody out there privy to the inner workings of Netscape 8.0 to the extent that they could recommend how to "fix" this? As I noted, it's insane that the log-in cookie for eBay would be recognized from one Netscape window to another but NOT for tabs in the same window! Any help would be appreciated.
