I am using XP Pro with FireFox 3.1 and Zone Alarm Pro.
I have recently have been experiencing problems accessing several sites that previously there was no trouble, this includes Hotmail, which just loops back onto the sign-on every time one tries to access Hotmail.
I have also failed to navigate through several sites ( seek.com.au being one of then) and have received a message saying that "cookies were not accepted" and requesting that cookies be enabled.
According to my settings:
there are ticks against "Accept Cookies from Sites"
and
"Accept Third Party Cookies"
I have checked exceptions and none of the sites I have experienced trougle with are listed.
Any ideas please.
Thanks Ken

Its probably Zone Alarm rather than Firefox. Temporarily shut it down and then see if you still get the same message or not.
