Put to the box just google.com without www. or without http://

lihuang -> mcepl
Yes. cookies are blocked without www. . Thank you
(this mean "google.com" is the *exact address of the site* , right ? )

I had a try on firefox-3.0.1-1.fc9.i386
"google.com"  "www.google.com" and "http://www.google.com"  both work.

No, I think it means, that the URL for which the cookie is requested matches the string you put there (i.e., "google.com" in our case).
