User Help for Mozilla Firefox
Yesterday, I noticed that when I try to login to Facebook, it reports an error and says that my browser is not set to allow cookies. I know that it is though. I double checked.
If I try to log in a second time, it always works...
The ONLY thing I have done differently yesterday was try to update my windows xp with microsoft update. When I went there, it's page said it needed me to download something before I could get the updates..so I did. And everything worked OK...until I tried going onto facebook.
Is there a simple fix for this? Or is it a bug that has to be worked out?
Any help would be very appreciated!
when you startup Firefox
before you go to Facebook, click Tools
[ show cookies ]
No, it does not show any facebook cookies. No folder at all for Facebook.
. . . .
Firefox 3 cookies
In Privacy Data [ Settings ], uncheck [ . .] Cookies.
I tried doing exactly what you said, and when I did #2 (visit all the sites to allow cookies, I did that for them all except when I tried Facebook, that option didn't even come up...There was nothing to check to allow it.
It just came up with the saying "your browser is not set for cookies and to enable them. When I try to log into facebook the second time, like always, it will then let me login....
[ Exceptions ] button
Address of web site:
[ facebook.com ]
( remember to unCheck cookies in Clear Private Data )
No, that doesn't work either. It should. I made sure to uncheck the cookies from clear private data when ending my session but obviously they are still being deleted.
Could the windows update from microsoft have done something that it shouldn't have?
I remember now that it wanted activex installed so that I could get the xp updates. I've always been able to get them with firefox before though.
Thank you everyone so far for all your help.
This one is puzzling.
I'm having the same trouble, except trying twice didn't help. The only thing is to accept each cookie as asked (time consuming), until it stops asking and lets me in, then log out. Then I reset to accept all cookies, and then it worked normall. But when I rebooted FF, same thing. I'll be doing IE for FB from now on. Didn't have the problem at all.
if I go to facebook with FF2 there is no malarkey
What, that totally worked.
I am about at my wits end. I have experienced the same problems listed above with both Firefox and IE7. Incompatible web browser. But yet it works with NETSCAPE. Someone please help this uninformed amature gain access to FB!!
Squirrelcage- You are not showing a user agent so facebook is confused. For firefox:
In the address bar, type about:config
Filter for general.useragent
Single right click on each result, click on Reset.
