Firefox is my main browser. I just joined and when I try to d/l poi files, I get this error msg:
You should allow cookies.
Your cookies are currently disabled

I checked and have cookies enabled and have an exception to allow gps-data-team.com.

Not sure how to proceed with FF. I get around this by going over to Google Chrome and getting the files. But I would like to get FF working, if possible.

Anyone else run into this with FF?

It could have to do with one of my many extensions. I'll check with the Mozilla folks and see if they have any ideas.

Well it looks like it's an issue with one or more of my extensions/plugins for FF. I closed all instances of FF and cranked it up in safe mode and the POI file was able to be d/l without issue.

I have the same problem but solved it by opening the files in IE.

I'm new here please be gentle.

Thought it was just me having this issue...

Have added site address to cookie exception list, so they should be accepted, but no luck.

Not sure quite why its started working, but this is what I did.

Closed ff and started back up in safe mode. Tried a download and it worked.

Closed ff and started normally. Tried a download and it failed.

Disabled blocksite addon and tried download, it worked.

Enabled blocksite addon and downloads still ok.....

Ive also had this problem with Firefox cookies and seemed to only be on the last few software updates.

Also had problems with other webpages so i actually thought it was just me!

Post FF cookies -- again

After suffering a HD crash in early December, I'm finally getting things back in order. And I'm back to having cookies issues with FF. But I don't remember what I did to fix it. I think once I cranked up in safe mode, cookies worked normally in normal mode. Let me try that again.

This fixed the issue again (brought about by the fresh installation of FF after a HD crash).

I shut down all instances of FireFox. Started FF in safe mode (not Windows safe mode) and navigated to this site. I got the point of being ready to d/l a file with no cookie issues and stopped.

I shut down FF and started it again in normal mode and now my cookie problem is gone.

Not sure why this works, but if anyone else is having a problem, hopefully this will fix it for you.

After reading the above posts my situation seems really strange. I'm running both Win 7 (home version) and Vista Business, both 64 bit versions.

In Win 7 I'm running FF 3.6.15 and even running in Safe Mode I still get the cookies error. Similarly it also happens with IE8!!

If I boot instead into Vista both FF 3.6.13 and IE8 both work OK i.e. no cookies disabled message. Weird!!

Is it Win 7 (64 bit) causing the problem given neither FF or IE work properly?

Win 7 64 did certainly have issues with browsers in 2010-2011
I am now using FF without any issues.
I trust an update has now sorted your situation

Install the FF update and try again.
