I keep getting the message telling me to enable third party cookies. The instructions for how to do so tell me to choose the options feature from the tools drop down menu, then to click on "privacy" and check a certain box that would enable cookies. This check box is not on the privacy menu. What do I do?

Chosen solution

Using the Menu Bar:

  • press the ALT or F10 key to get the Menu Bar to temporarily appear
  • with your mouse make the selection Tools > Options > Privacy

Using the Firefox button (Firefox 4 & 5):

  • click the Firefox button > Options > Options > Privacy

To see the third-party cookies option, at the top of the Privacy panel set "Firefox will" to "Use custom settings for history"

See Options window - Privacy panel
