My comcast provider asked that I enable cookies. That is all I wish to do. How do I do that?
Go to safari preferences privacy tab to select cookie options
1) From the Safari menu, click Preferences
2) From the Security dialog box, To set whether Safari accepts cookies, tap Accept Cookies and choose "Never", "From visited", or "Always".
