I have my development site in
Everything is working fine, until I tested it in IE browser. When I click add to cart button (no changes made to this functionality), it gets redirected to cart page, but the cart is empty.
In other browsers, it is working fine. I use IE 10, also tested in IE9, IE8, IE7 (checked using the Browser Mode option). The problem prevails. I checked with both Magento CE and EE.
Is there a problem with IE settings, so that localhost websites doesn't hold cookies or something like that? Can anyone help me on this?
EDIT: sorry I forgot to mention, I don't have permissions to edit hosts file, otherwise I could have created a virtual domain. If other browsers can add products to cart, why not IE? I remember I have used loclhost in IE sometime back and it worked.
