2 questions:


1) In the original post the cookie domains are defined as..


define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.yourdomain.com');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'yourdomain.com');


I have a sharred SSL with the www. Does that mean I should add the www. to both defined cookie domains?, like so:


define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.mydomain.com');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.mydomain.com');


2) when I type the url into the Firefox browser, it loads in SSL mode as HTTPS, however, it does not do that in IE, Chrome, or Opera. I don't want my site loading in SSL mode, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
