Question:

Question: What does "iCloud requires cookies" mean?

I have iCloud as a Top Sites/Favorite. The icon for this link sometimes

reads "iCloud requires cookies". What is the meaning of this sentence?

Answer:
Answer:

That the crawler cannot store cookies, so iCloud returns that message. It doesn't have anything to do with how you access icloud. Its just how the Favorites icon gets generated.


Why it does it sometimes and not others is quite strange however.

I see that in my Top Sites iCloud link/page all the time and I have no trouble accessing iCloud. I do have cookies enabled. So that isn't the problem. It may just be a statement of fact.

What is the "error" which is occuring that you are referring to?


It is not always there: 'iCloud requires cookies' -- sometimes it read the place in iClouds last visited.


Are you saying that one doesn't enable cookies in Safari for this function?

It is not that I have trouble accessing iCloud, I do not.


It is not always there: 'iCloud requires cookies' -

- sometimes it reads, the place in iClouds last visited.


I think your assessment that it is just a statement of

fact may be correct under the circumstances.
