    I am wondering if this is a non-Facebook problem: Every time I go into Facebook, I have to give my email and password....this didn't use to happen, and I'm wondering if it's a problem where something is getting blocked, or a cookie problem, etc....anyone have an idea? (of course I click "remember me." )

    Assuming you're using Internet Explorer 7 or 8, open IE, click on Tools > Internet Options > Privacy tab > Settings > slide the bar to Medium.

    Click on Advanced...

    Uncheck the boxes in there.

    I checked and it's already on medium. On the advanced tab, what's checked are the options allowing first and third party cookies. Should I change that?

    Leave them on "Allow".

    What happens if you lower the slide bar again one notch to "Low"? If there's no improvement, it might not be a cookie issue.

    Look at your security programs' options. You might have something set to block third party cookies. Perhaps your firewall?
