Accept cookies for all users

Hello,

I have a series of computers that run mozilla firefox. For some reason, firefox's cookie handling is turned off by default for everyone that would use a computer. I can enable it on a per-user basis, but that is tedious. Not to mention it totally confounds end users as to why some web-sites do not work. Is there a way to enable cookies for all users of a computer without having to re-sysprep and copy over a new default profile to each of the computers? Something in about:config maybe?

Thanks

You probably want to look in about:config network.cookie.cookieBehavior

Note:This is not the place to edit your configuration settings. This is a reference to the entries in about:config, where all user preferences can be viewed and modified.

Plus you can check this link, "About:config entries"

I think I have to make a mozilla.cfg file and use that. I'll post back when I know.

The mozilla.cfg file did it along with a local-settings.js file.
