So I open my finance site, moneycontrol.com, I try to login into my portfolio. Again no going forward, and status bar very confidently declaring, “Error on page”. Hmm….

So I thought, wait, that’s not possible. Must be cookies or something. May be they are reading cookies differently :P. So I deleted temp files, cookies etc.. But still, “error on page”.
