How can I get past "your browser's cookie functionality is turned off. Please turn it on. fixit_please 5/31/10 2:40 PM
I have been using gmail fine on all my systems but today I after I sign in it gives me an error: Your browser's cookie functionality is turned off. Please turn it on.

I noticed there are a lot of posters with the same question but no helpful answers as of yet. I have deleted my cache and the cookie is enabled I can not figure out why this error is popping up. I know I am using an older machine and browser (due to my work needing and old system with OS 9.2 But I have been using it all along with no problems. I had to use a MacBook for this post since I can get sign in on the other computer.

Operating system MAC OS 9.2.2
Program and version you use to access Gmail: Internet Explorer 5
Your antivirus software NONE

I am updating that the iCab browser works on a 9.2 os system (any classic 8.5 or higher) works, and I was able to login to GMAIL with that browser.

I did check that out first (before posting), I enabled it and that didn't work, then I couldn't follow the next step on there because I am using ie 5 and they only have troubleshoot info for ei 6,7,8.

I kept getting the same error message and was unable to find any answers on the web.  While exploring my Internet Options I clicked on the "Privacy" tab and then clicked on the "Sites" button and found that google.com and yahoo.com had somehow been added to the list with a setting of "Always block".  Once I deleted those two sites from the list I was able to sign onto youtube and google again.

Worked like a charm. How is it possible this is not included in Google Accounts Help, which only tells you how to enable cookies, but completely ignores the fact that this will do no good if the Sites list has Google blocked?

Following Bushwakt's advice I clicked on the "Sites" button under the "Privacy" tab and found that the "always block" list was blank, then I checked the "allowed" list and found that only yahoo.com was listed there.  After adding google.com to the list, it worked for me.

I found the same problem, google.co.uk and google.com had ended up being permanently blocked.
Right as rain now
 
This has driven me nuts for about 6 hours

bushwakt was correct.  I had the same problem; just started in the last couple of months.  It was driving me crazy.  I agree - why can't Google include this in their posted repair options.  If you follow them to the cookies screen, and do not look at the sites tab, you will never get it fixed.  And who the h- at Microsoft went and reset the defaults?  It had to happen during one of the updates you get all the time. Suspicious that both Google and Yahoo were reset to "always block".   Could it be because they compete with Microsoft's Bing, or Bling, or whatever they call it?
