I keep getting "cookies are not enabled" when they ARE on my Mac, so can't sign in to Facebook
I use Mac OS 10.5.7 and have for a very long time. I was using a slightly older version of Firefox although I update when prompted. Now I am using Firefox 3.6.13 Although working fine for a very long time w/ no problems, suddenly I cannot get signed into Facebook OR Netflix because I get an error message saying my "cookies are not enabled in browser". They ARE enabled, and I've repeatedly emptied the cache, rebooted, quit and restarted Firefox, changed passwords for Facebook. NOTHING gets me in.
If clearing the cookies doesn't help then it is possible that the file cookies.sqlite that stores the cookies is corrupted.
Rename (or delete) cookies.sqlite (cookies.sqlite.old) and delete cookies.sqlite-journal and cookies.txt, if they exist, in the Profile Folder in case the file cookies.sqlite got corrupted.
