The answer to the problem Apr 15, 2007

At the bottom of the IATE search screen there is a frame which reads: Your last 10 requests. If you have been having problems with your searches and you click on ‘Select a saved request’, you will see that there is a very long string which has been created as a result of incorrect saving of your searches by the IATE program. This string is saved in the IATE cookie and, when it can no longer be updated, searches stop functioning. This happens regardless of the browser you use.
The solution, for the time being, seems to be to delete the IATE cookie. DO NOT follow the solution that says ‘Delete cookies’ because there are many cookies there which you need.

For IE, follow these steps:
In Windows Explorer go to Documents and Settings > Your Computer Name (mine, for example, is Nick) > Cookies.
Click on Search at the top. Choose to Search for Documents. Use Advanced search options and, where it says ‘All or part of the document name’ type ‘iate’ (without the quotes). Press Search and, once the results of the search come up, delete the iate cookie(s) (mine is called nick@iate.europa[2].txt).
Close and re-open Internet Explorer so it forgets the cookie it had in memory. When you reconnect to IATE, the ‘Select a saved request’ frame should be empty and the searches should function properly until a false string is recreated, in which case you will have to repeat the procedure. Or, hopefully, the IATE team will soon solve the problem.

For Firefox, do not use Windows Explorer. In the Firefox browser, go to Tools > Options > Privacy > Show Cookies
In the Search box type ‘iate’ (without the quotes) and Remove cookies with the iate name. Close and re-open Firefox.
