Red face TO void flash cookins from paypal /ebay

Can we just have one computer for each ebay account or paypal account ,so cookies and flash cookies are not a problem, this way we only have to deal with using a new ip address , any comments are welcome.

Another questions, if after a limitation, they ask you for ssn and you tell them ,that you dont have one, can you fax them a DL , would they take this ?
it work for me before in my old accounts but i m not sure if they would take it now.
Please let me know, thanks

each user id on windows dose not share cookies or flash cookies

A seperate user account for each ebay account is the ideal solution, this way you don't need to worry about cookies or flash objects.

Otherwise the best cookie/junk/flash object cleaner is "ccleaner", you can download and use it for free.

I would never give my SSN to paypal let alone my PassPort information.
I personally would let my money sit for 6 months and then pull it out before I would give them that information.

Default Cookies & passwords

I use a Firefox browser and I have added Objection to "Remove LSO's when browser closes." Plus, when I access Tools I have the option of "Clear Private Data" above Objection. So when I close Firefox and reload it - None of the websites that I visit are remembered - I have checked. But, for example when I access this Forum and I enter my User Name - the Password automatically pops up. I cannot figure out if I am clearing my flash cookies and my passwords since they still seem to be available. BTW - when I accessed this Forum through Safari - which I had never done before, and entered in my user name it didn't remember my password - so this is a Firefox thing. Is this too technical for this Forum or is there a simple answer for the question, how can I tell if my cookies, flash cookies, and passwords are removed? Also, how do I set up a separate "User Account?" BTW - what are LSO's?

If you chose to have Firefox save your passwords, these are housed elsewhere.
If you are running Windows, click on Start/Help and Support and type in a search for User Accounts.
Where do you see a reference to LSO?

Default Cookies, Flash cookies & passwords

First, I use a MacBook Pro and I don't have Windows installed. When I have Firefox loaded and I click on Tools, Objection is the last option on the drop down list. When I click on Objections and then on Settings - I get a box that says
"Automatically remove LSO's - Local Shared Objects are pieces of information placed by flash programs on your computer. They are frequently used like cookies." Next it says,
"Data Directory"
There is a bar with this info:
"Users/(username)/library/preferences/macromedia/flashplayer"

Under this bar is two buttons I can click - "change directory" or "automatic search"
Under that it says "Automatically Remove LSO's" and under that I have 3 options to check -
"Never automatically remove"
"Remove on Browser Open"
"Remove on Browser Close"
(I have chose the last option.) Then it gives you a separate option - "Also Remove Site Settings" which I have checked too.

There are two other boxes I can access when I look at Objection stuff. One is called "File Details" which has no information and the 3rd is "Flash Player Settings" that has a bunch of settings I won't go into right now.

Does any of this make sense to you? I use a Mac and that has complicated this a bit but I did download Objection earlier this week and I can only access these Settings when I am using Firefox. Are LSO's Flash cookies? Does this mean that they are being erased every time I close Firefox? Have you heard of the option on the Tools drop down window that says "Clear Private Data?" That is just above Objection on the drop down menu for Tools. Clear as mud, right?

What would we do without Google? (that's rhetorical, by the way)

Google: Mac separate user account
Oh!... look at that! Mac OS X 10.4 Help: Adding a new user account to your computer

Let's try another one:

Google: Firefox LSO
Bingo! It seems like LSO stands for Local Shared Object.

See where I'm going with this?
I don't mean to sound... well... mean.
Take some time and educate yourself. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

I have been running a Macintosh for 10 years and I have almost no problems dealing with eBay/Paypal.
The Mac is a fantastic platform, you just have to take the time to learn how to use it all to your advantage.

Just have flash simply blocked from running, either using K-Meleon, a firefox extension, or get a browser that has an extensions folder and remove all the files that can run flash and shockwave.

Problem solved.

Keeping cookies and flash cookies can be a good thing as it lets eBay/PP identify that it's really you and not somebody hacking into your account. This could prevent a verification call from eBay/PP.
That's why I would recommend using separate OS User Accounts.

Default Flash cookies

Doesn't having separate User Accounts minimize your need to delete cookies - flash or regular? I have several User Accounts set up on my laptop that are very easy to access. I use one just for general surfing and stuff like visiting this site, and separate ones for each eBay account that I am getting ready to set up. As long as I only use the "eBay User Accounts" for the eBay account I have assigned to them, and never login to an eBay account from the wrong User Account - then I can leave all the cookies - right? Wouldn't that look better to eBay anyway? If you never have any cookies doesn't that make eBay suspicious?

Brendaleigh, the most important thing about using different Windows (or Mac) User Accounts is to keep track of which IP has been used with which account. Crossing IPs would be like crossing proton streams. Bad.

Quote:
Spengler: There's something very important I forgot to tell you.
Venkman: What?
Spengler: Don't cross the streams.
Venkman: Why?
Spengler: It would be bad.
Venkman: I'm fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing. What do you mean, "bad"?
Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Stantz: Total protonic reversal.
Venkman: Right. That's bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.
doodaaloo, I can't find any posts where Modee explained the "why", but the fact that he recommended against it was enough to convince me.
