Here's an interesting one. My site sends the customer out to Amazon in a frame. When the customer adds a book to the cart, on IE7 on Windows, they get a message from Amazon asking them to enable cookies (even though cookies are enabled). No message comes up on Firefox.

To reproduce the problem:
1. Visit
2. Click the first book on the page to go to Amazon
3. Click click "add to cart"
4. Note the giant "Important Message" in yellow at the top of the page

Why would Amazon think cookies are disabled, when they are not? Again this works fine in FFox. I'm putting the page in a frame, but that's it, nothing crazy or weird is going on.
