For some unknown reason Firefox is blocking my attempts to sign onto my yahoo page a lot lately, I'm getting this message: "The browser you're using refuses to sign in. (cookies rejected)" whenever i try to sign unto Firefox . Until this started happening, i never had problem with it. Strangely enough, IE works just fine.

Can someone explain to me what's going on?

Are you certain you have deleted all of the yahoo cookies?

If you are certain, click on Tools --> Options --> Privacy, exceptions button. Make sure that you are allowing Yahoo cookies.

Then most likely you don't have any. Let's put that aside for a bit. Try a new profile. http://kb.mozillazine.org/Creating_a_ne ... on_Windows Don't add anything to it yet. I am trying to get you as close to a clean version of Firefox as possible.
