    After reading the article, the way I understand it is that this is only in relation to the "private-browsing" mode of the browsers (some call it "porn-mode"). Apparently, cookies which should be deleted or not accessed during the private-browsing session aren't handled properly. It's a bigger issue if Flash is involved (which I imagine many, ummm, "entertainment" video sites use). I hope more information regarding this matter is released soon.

    I know Chrome and IE8 beta both have private-browsing modes (Safari has had this early on). Does Firefox have a private-browsing mode too?
