I have this same problem.

Here's what SEEMS to have solved it.

Second, I found that the next time I closed the browser, despite apparent success, I was back to square one. I had to again clear cache and get rid of the cookies.

I can't say I found an elegant solution at that point or why this was happening---but this time I simply refused to close the browser for awhile. And then suddenly everything was ok. Or seems to be. We'll see if the problem reoccurs. My theory is that continued use overwrote whatever was causing the problem.
