Don't use IE but in Firefox if you go to tools, options, content tab your see the Enable Java and Enable Java Script boxes that can be checked.
I have both checked on mine but then I have the NoScript extension.
It puts a icon in the lower right of firefox like you see in the More previews… page and you left click on it and up pop a list of options. I only give rights to sites I go to all the time and it will remember it. If I am at a new site but need the script to run I let it run for the session only.

You know Google maps is something like Mapquest so you could use that site too.

Both Java and Java Script are enabled.
Yes Google maps is like Mapquest, but after Mapquest quit working, I started to use Google and a bounch of other ones, but it doesnt give accurate results.

It should work then but then I am guessing if your blocking images from mqcdn.com then it would keep you from seeing the map. So go to the same tab in the above post I talked about and look at the load image exceptions list to see if your blocking them.

Edit it looks like most all the images come from mqcdn.com so you would not see much of anything if you blocked images from mqcdn.com but I did have to let the script run for mqcdn.com or I would just get a blank spot were the map should be.

When I turned off the java script for www.mapquest.com I got this here below. But it works when I turn on the java script for www.mapquest.com and mqcdn.com and I am not letting the site set a cookie.
You must have Javascript and Cookies turned on to view all MapQuest features. Find out more information »

So maybe the Find out more information » will help you out.

OK, I allowed mqcdn.com and mapquest by going to the bottom right of the window, but it still doesnt work.

I went to the "find out more information" link. and followed the instructions for firefox, but then I cant follow the instructions from step 5 and on because if I click on the advaced button next to enable Javascript, it has nothing to do with cookies. When i click on the Advanced tab, it also doesnt have any thing about cookies. Clicked on the Privacy tab and still didnt find "Enable cookies for the originating website only." or any of the following two(seems like the steps are messed up)

Don't know what is going on because it should work. Now I got firefox 1.5x so that step 5 means nothing. Plus it only say... "5. Click the Advanced button."

1 tru 4 is for Enable Javascript

6 tru 9 is for the cookies.

So who knows what the 5 is for because it looks like they forgot the rest.

But like I said I can get it to work with any cookies. So if it needs a cookie then maybe somehow I am blocking it from working right with my hosts file.

the maps don't come from mqcdn.com - though a lot of important stuff does (the CSS, JS files, etc) - but at the moment, if your referrer doesn't come through correctly you don't get a map.
so if you're doing something to your referrers, or they're being stripped somewhere down the line, it will cause problems.
