Hello;

I've been having a problem getting Firefox to open login.yahoo.com. It keeps saying the site is blocked. However,when I set Firefox to accept cookies it automatically re blocks the cookie.

I am able to access Yahoo otherwise and have even tried toggling off Zonealarm in case it was a firewall issue.
Can anyone tell me how to unblock this or tell me what dumb thing I'm doing ? Thank you

Might be a stupid question, but did you check under the cookies Exceptions and see if it's on the list to be Allowed/Block?. Sometimes toggling off ZoneAlarm and have it effective requires a reboot. I really don't think ZA is the problem though.

Hi Ron;

Thanks for the quick reply.

When I check in the exceptions list, it is indeed blocked. However, when I try to allow the cookie to be set and check back, it is automatically reset to be blocked. I'm just not sure why or how it does that. That's the rub!

OK, I got it now, Ron.

I just restarted session and allowed changes to take place. It didn't work before, but now it has. Must have been you :whistling:

Thanks
