Alrite this my first post on this forum
the reason why no one particular solution works is because the above "Session ..... browser" error is caused due to a couple reasons and one of them is a server issue. Make these couple of checks and see if the error is solved

1. Ensure your server time is set correctly
(This though trivial is a very much likely cause ... trust me :S )
this can be done by choosing mod_customcode module and inserting tthe following code
$today = getdate($_SERVER['REQUEST_TIME']);
print_r $today;

2. In ur configuration.php file set the live site
variable to the full site path

var $live_site = '';

(This is the most important step because even without this it(Registration) will work on a localhost server or even on a LAN ... hence you dont realise the problem once the site put online for public access / registration)

Other combinations like keeping System Cache On/ Off , Varying Session Time , Ensuring Locale Settings are appropriate --- all did not eliminate the problem ... and when unset didn't cause the problem to recurr.

After these checks were implemented , these 2 sites are working well with proper registration
although SEF has not been enabled as yet

Tested in Mozilla and IE
