Cookie on that site should redirect me to intel help document but firefox does
nothing. Konqueror redirects properly.

This is not a problem with cookies at all.  In fact, it is a problem with the
web page itself.

Error: document.forms.myform has no properties

Looking at the source code, there are two problems with the page itself.

1. It places <form> in the <head> element which is invalid.  It should be in the
<body>
2. It tries to run scripts which manipulate the document in the header before
the document has finished loading.

If the page is fixed to move the <form> element into the <body> and the two
JavaScript bits are wrapped around two functions and called such as <body
onload="doJS11Code(); doJSCode();"> then the page works as expected.

I can't fix the webpage so resolving as CANTFIX.
