Sessions not retained in Firefox/Safari

Hi

I'm using several Sessions in my app. When the user has cookies enabled in
their browser, everything works fine. But with cookies disabled, only IE
seems to remember the sessions. In Firefox and Safari, the session values
seem to be "forgotten".

I've looked around on Google but can't find any solutions to this problem.
Plus I don't know how debug with Firefox (eg. step through the code).

So, basically I have two questions:
1. Any idea why non-IE browsers are losing their sessions when cookies are
disabled?
2. How can I step through code using non-IE browsers?

Thanks
Chris

by default session support requires cookies (you must not haver cookies off
in IE, chck the zone, and be sure cookies are disabled for that zone).

you can use cookieless sessions, (see web config), but this munge the
session id into the url, so your urls look like

mysite.com/applicaion/numericsessionid/page.aspx
