    Hello,

    I am getting the following message when trying to log into my Gmail account.

    "Your browser's cookie functionality appears to be turned off, please turn it on."

    I've done so but am still getting the message.

    I'm using vista home premium and Firefox 8.0


    Thanks in advance.

    Make sure that gmail isn't listed as an Exception to accepting cookies. I forgot the details, but I believe that Firefox automatically adds sites to that list when you request certain other privacy functions for a given site.

    Thanks, CW.

    Yeah, I checked the settings several times and there were actually google cookies in there.

    I switched to chrome which I like at least as well so far and I haven't had the memory gobbling issues I've been having with FF since around version 7.

    Thanks and happy holidays
