some sites say cookies is not on, it is. I have turned it off, then back on with the same results. Also, when asked to type 'whats in the box', for security, it will not accept.

Hello BJ.

Although possibly not related to your problem, I will remind you that the version of Firefox you are using at the moment has been discontinued and is no longer supported. Furthermore, it has known bugs and security problems. I urge you to update to the latest version of Firefox, for maximum stability, performance, security and usability. You can get it for free, as always, at

As for your problem, make sure Javascript is enabled:

But you may be having a problem with some extension or plugin that is hindering your Firefox's normal behavior. Have you tried disabling all add-ons (just to check), to see if Firefox goes back to normal?
