Whenever I click on the "blog this" link in Picasa, it throws up a window complaining about cookies (helpfully in German, because Google thinks that everyone in Switzerland reads German). A rough translation (from Google also) is included below. I've done everything it suggests, but on inspection, it's totally useless.

As far as I can tell, Picasa uses it's own embedded version of IE (it shows up as IE7 at http://www.thismachine.info/, whereas I have IE9 installed). So changing cookie settings in IE9 isn't going to help.

Has anyone else even see this problem? Any ideas? Or maybe your Google-fu is better than mine?

Never really found a satisfying answer to this.

Sometimes a Back (backspace) or refresh (F5) works, other times I have to resort to loading 'manually' from a browser.
