  1. I face same problems in Facebook and YouTube, especially after installation of new windows 10. In fresh windows 10 (or any other older windows) cookies are at “enabled’ status as default setting. I tried every step to solve this issue, but couldn’t. I tried all four main browsers, tried all version of Firefox, but problem remained…..
    The problem always solved when I WAITED for a few hour (10-15) after installation fresh windows 10, and cookies problem (or whatever is the [problem) automatically solved. And i never faced this problem again till installation fresh window.

  2. Set Allow Cooks and enjoy!

  3. I am having the same issue!

  4. Don’t block cookies is set still receiving message you need to allow cookies to sign in.

    Any idea I have cleared everything, cache, browsing history.

    Thank You
