I'm trying to login to facebook and it's telling me,"Cookies are not enabled on your browser. Please adjust this in your security preferences before continuing." What does this mean and how do I fix it?


I did what the help area told me to do and it still isn't allowing me to enable cookies.

Enable and disable cookies that websites use to track your preferences should work... if it doesn't, you may try

  1. Websites say cookies are blocked - Unblock them and
  2. if 1 doesn't help, then possibly see How to fix preferences that won't save if that's the case.

Some security software (firewall) can also block cookies, so if the settings in Firefox are OK then have a look in the settings for Firefox in your security software.
