    Same deal. Amazon tells me "Please enable cookies to continue." Cookies are anabled and Amazon is the only site that my computer has an issue with. I deleted my temporary files and such but it didn't change anything. Can anyone offer any suggestion?

    Note: Please make suggestions helpful.

    I have a new computer running Vista 64. I have enabled cookies, cleared old cookies, but Amazon still wants me to "enable cookies". I can log in, look at past orders, track orders, but if I attempt to look at my shopping cart, I get the "cookie" message.

I had the same problem and changed the date and time on my internet clock to the correct date and from there I was able to get into amazon and use there checkout . Go figure. So check your date and time settings on your computer clock. It may be the problem. My date said March 2009 when it was still February 2009. the time on my clock was off by an hour also. I guess I was in back to the future mode LOL

Your cookies have become corrupt, go to IExplorer>tools>internet options, then click on delete button on browsing history, and delete each option, you should then get in.

I had the same problem. I went through various steps of lowering my internet security until the problem was fixed. Basically, you have to allow the lowest form of security. To log onto Amazon, you have to allow first and third party cookies that don't have a compact privacy policy and that have the right to contact you without your explicit permission and that can save identifying data about you. As long as you allow THAT MUCH, then you can log on. But if you try to block or prompt third party cookies that expire in 30 years, or if you try to require cookies to have privacy policies, then you can't log on. In other words, you have to set your internet security setting to LOW to log onto Amazon. Want their business? Pull down your shorts. Digitally speaking of course.

No, all that is too complicated and most of it doesn't work. This is the answer that forces a fix, in IE11. Click the "Tools" menu item at the top. Select "Internet Options" at the bottom of the drop down menu. Click on "Sites", which opens a list of your preferences for preferred safe or blocked sites. There's a little white text entry window with "Block" and "Allow" buttons on the right. Read carefully, because this is important and confusing. The "Blocked" button starts out highlighted. Leave it alone. Put your cursor in the white text entry window, click to select it, and enter "", without the quotes. DO NOT put in the https or WWW, etc. Now bring your cursor over the "Allow" button and it will be highlighted. Left siingle click it and the window text will disappear, but has gone into the "allowed" list below, after you click "O.K.". But the special thing that has happened here is that Amazon has become a trusted site and, specifically, cookies from that site will be accepted no matter what. The instructions at the top tell you this. Now go back to Amazon, shop, and spend money happily. The bogus "enable cookies" message is history. And you can access your Amazon account and all other features again. Oh yes, Microsoft's website has wrong answers and has locked the subject, to avoid getting the right one.

I tried changing my date and time and that didn't work. I also cleared my browsing history and that didn't work. I even made sure that amazon was allowed specifically in my cookies exceptions. That didn't help. I really don't know what else to do.

Cookies turned off how do I turn on Cookies

When you visit a site that wants to install a Cookie, it will ask you if they are allowed to do. you have to say yes or no.
Perhaps the admin did setup the browser, that nobody is allowed to accept cookies. Ask him / her, to switch it on. Or why the settings are so.
If the computer or mobile device is yours, perhaps you did change the settings. But we then at least need to know what device, brand and model, and what OS and what browser.

First Facebook kept tellinjg me that cookies were not enabled. I checked and they were. First Party and third party cookies accepted and accept all cookie sessions. Facebook is also listed in Trusted...

I had several problems with facebook on my regular browser. So I just got Firefox and I haven't got a problem with it anymore. Also did you tried to delete all cookies? Your browser should have this option listed under tools, preferences or security.

Cannot load farmville loading bar tried reloading flash player clearing history all iu have been told but nothing recently installed windows update but other than that have been playing it for months on...

Hi, Make sure that you have the most Recent update for the Flash Player.
Well have you tried using Flash Player Settings Manager? Please go here and Adjust your settings. Specially "Privacy Settings".
  1. Browse here and adjust the Storage Settings. 1 Mb would be enough.
  2. Check the "Allow Third-Party Content To Store Data On Your Computer". You have to uncheck this later and re check whether "Farmville" loads properly. You can try that later.
  3. Browse here and clear All the Cookies. Click on "Delete all sites" and Confirm.
  4. Alternatively, you can Scroll the list to find the cookie for Farmville and set it to "Always Ask" or "Always Allow".
  5. Then go to Facebook and load it again. If the cookie had been rejected, you will be asked to "Allow" that. Do so.
  6. If not, it will be loaded well.

Please let me know what happens after you have tried. Thanks for contacting Fixya!. If the solution worked for you, please rate the answer as well!

Facebook log in problem Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown error.

Thank you for visiting Fixya forums.

There are several reasons you may be getting this error code. Each will be suggested below:


Change your firewall settings in the Security Preference Pane to 'Allow all incoming connections'. Check to make sure you don't have a firewall running that has stopped iPhoto from communicating with Facebook.


This error code may be an issue with the cookie that Firefox or Safari uses to store the Exporter's login info. You need to delete the Facebook cookie called "isfbe". In Firefox you can do this by going to your preferences, clicking on "Privacy," then find the Show Cookies button. Find the one whose name contains the term "isfbe". Then click Delete Cookie.

For Safari you also go to preferences, but first click on "Security," then click Show Cookies and find the aforementioned cookie and delete it.

After this, just go back to the Facebook Exporter in iPhoto and login again, this time you will have no connection problem.


iPhoto, a problem lies in a conflict with the latest point update for iPhoto '08, version 7.1.3. Maybe it will work if you reinstall iPhoto, update to 7.1.2, copy the iPhoto application and rename it "iPhoto old," and then run Software Update and bring it up to date to get the bug fixes in the latest update for your main copy of iPhoto.

Note: I don't know if it will change the library format at all with 7.1.3.
The FAQ/support page for the Facebook Exporter for iPhoto is here: <>


1. Log out of Facebook through your web browser.
2. Go to Facebook Exporter for iPhoto, click Login.
3. This will open a Facebook login page in your web browser.
4. Log in but do not check "Save my login info..."
5. Go back to iPhoto, hit continue, and export your photos.

Sometimes an error message may still occur while uploading the photos, but retry and eventually it should work.


If you have Little Snatch running on your computer it may be blocking iPhoto from access port 80.

For some reason with the Facebook export it doesn't pop up and prompt you to allow access. Allow access in LittleSnitch my Facebook plugin for iPhoto may allow you to start connecting properly.

FULL Reset of Safari
You can remove all history, cache, cookies, etc.

Firefox History
If your browser is Firefox, clear history.

In computing, a cookie (also tracking cookie, browser cookie, and HTTP cookie) is a small piece of text stored on a user's computer by a web browser. A cookie consists of one or more name-value pairs containing bits of information such as user preferences, shopping cart contents, the identifier for a server-based session, or other data used by websites.
It is sent as an HTTP header by a web server to a web browser and then sent back unchanged by the browser each time it accesses that server. A cookie can be used for authenticating, session tracking (state maintenance), and remembering specific information about users, such as site preferences or the contents of their electronic shopping carts. The term "cookie" is derived from "magic cookie", a well-known concept in UNIX computing which inspired both the idea and the name of browser cookies. Some alternatives to cookies exist; each has its own uses, advantages, and drawbacks.
Being simple pieces of text, cookies are not executable. They are neither spyware or viruses, although cookies from certain sites are detected by many anti-spyware products because they can allow users to be tracked when they visit various sites.
Most modern browsers allow users to decide whether to accept cookies, and the time frame to keep them, but rejecting cookies makes some websites unusable. For example, shopping carts or login systems implemented using cookies do not work if cookies are disabled.

My computer is not accepting cookies.

Assuming you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer, you have to do this:
  1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Privacy tab, and then click Advanced.
  3. Click Override automatic cookie handling, and then specify how you want Internet Explorer to handle cookies from first-party Web sites and third-party Web sites (a Web site other than the one you are currently viewing).
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to always allow cookies to be saved on your computer, click Accept.
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to never allow cookies to be saved on your computer, click Block.
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to ask whether or not you want to allow a cookie to be saved on your computer, click Prompt.
  4. If you want Internet Explorer to always allow session cookies (cookies that will be deleted from your computer when you close Internet Explorer) to be saved on your computer, click Always allow session cookies.
  • Some Web sites require cookies; therefore, if you select a setting that does not allow cookies to be saved on your computer, you might not be able to view certain Web sites.
  • When you change your privacy settings, the changes might not affect cookies that are already on your computer. If you want to ensure that all of the cookies on your computer meet your privacy settings, you should delete all of the existing cookies on your computer. When you return to Web sites that previously had saved cookies on your computer, the Web sites that meet your privacy settings will save cookies on your computer again. The Web sites that do not meet your privacy settings will not be allowed to save cookies on your computer, and might not function properly.
