Javascript cookies only work in FireFox

I've written this code to change some font formats in one of my websites I've made with joomla (and designed with css sculptor.

For some reason it only works in Firefox and I can't get my hand on where the error is. Does somebody know what's going wrong here?

function readCookie(name) {
var nameEQ = name + "=";
var ca = document.cookie.split(';');
for(var i=0;i < ca.length;i++) {
var c = ca[i];
while (c.charAt(0)==' ') c = c.substring(1,c.length);
if (c.indexOf(nameEQ) == 0) return c.substring(nameEQ.length,c.length);
}
return null;
}



function getFontSize(){
var size = readCookie("fontsize");
if (size== null) return "normal"; else return size;
}


(function($) {

function setFontSize (size)
{



if (size == "small")
{
$("#contentWrapper").css("font-size", "10px");
$("#contentWrapper h1").css("font-size","14px");
$("#contentWrapper h2").css("font-size", "12px");
}

if (size == "big")
{
$("#contentWrapper").css("font-size","14px");
$("#contentWrapper h2").css("font-size","16px");
$("#contentWrapper h1").css("font-size","18px");
}

if (size =="normal")
{
$("#contentWrapper").css("font-size","12px");
$("#contentWrapper h2").css("font-size","14px");
$("#contentWrapper h1").css("font-size","16px");
}


document.cookie="fontsize=" + size + ";max-age=" + (60*60*24*365) ;
}




$(document).ready(function(){

var size = getFontSize();
setFontSize (size);



$('a#smallFont').click(function(e){
e.preventDefault();
setFontSize('small');
return false;
});

$('a#normalFont').click(function(e){
e.preventDefault();
setFontSize('normal');
return false;
});

$('a#bigFont').click(function(e){
e.preventDefault();
setFontSize('big');
return false;
});




}); // document ready


})(jQuery)

Well, as i found out, there where two cookies stored with the same name in the cash, for some reason it didn't erase them. I have cleaned the cash with a third party program and then it actually worked as it should be. Neither IE or Chrome had cleaned the cookies as supposed to do. Thank you very much for your reply it got me in the right direction.

Hi Mate

I have worked on it. It works in IE8 or higher versions.Please change settings of IE.

Hi,

Generally speaking, when given a cookie that has no expiration period, modern browsers will consider this cookie to be a 'session cookie', they will remove the cookie at the end of the browsing session (generally when the browser instance closes).

IE, Opera, Safari and Chrome all support this behavior.

However firefox (3.0.9 latest proper release) appears not to follow this rule, from what I can tell it doesn't expire the cookies when the browser is closed, or when the user logs off or restarts the OS...

Thanks,
Jackie
