It just took me two hours of programming and slamming my head against the desk to realize that Cookies get saved according to the exact URL of the site. I kept trying to delete the cookies of domain.com when I needed to delete the cookies of www.domain.com.
That is annoying.

I’m sure you realize this, but that’s on purpose. domain.com and http://www.domain.com are not neccessarily the same site. “www” is just another hostname as far as the browser is concerned. You wouldn’t want the cookies for intranet.domain.com and http://www.domain.com to intermingle, so cookies set for a hostname are specific to that hostname.
However, if you set the cookie on domain.com, you’ll be able to read it from http://www.domain.com, foo.domain.com and any other domain.com hostname.
