Iv run into a problem. when I sign out of my Hotmail email, I get an error saying, "Couldn't sign you out We couldn't sign you out because your browser is blocking cookies. To sign out, close all of your browser windows. To keep this from happening again, change your browser's settings to allow cookies. If you don't know how to do that, see your browser's help." <---(word for word)

When I go into the Preferences to allow cookies, it already says it is accepting cookies.
Can anyone shed light on why this is happening?
When I use, "Firefox" I don't have any problems signing out of Hotmail.
So far this is the only problem Iv had in relation to cookies.
My computer specs are in my Profile if you need to see them.
Thanks

Hotmail does the same to my browsers. I have them set to block third party cookies and they are staying that way no matter what hotmail thinks.

i'd honestly just use firefox...
i'm assuming IE is what is causing issues...
it prob. wants you to let all cookies through. A generally bad idea

I hear ya man. I actually really like Opera, the only think i don't like is how it doesn't save custom zoom on individual website. other then that, Opera has been proven the fastest browser of 2010 benchmarked by Toms itself.
