I am having trouble with a certain job website which says that my cookies are disabled, but they aren't, I have them enabled. I have tried settings "always" and "only sites I visit" in the safari preferences, but neither of them will allow me access to that part of the site (which is to create and account to enable jobsearch) Why is this and how do i fix it? Any ideas?

Also, make sure after you made your preference changes that you try fully closing Safari, right-click on dock icon and quit. Then re-open.

If all else fails you could try another browser. I personally loath Safari, Google Chrome is a good alternative IMHO.

This is the site I am trying to access...If i go to the box in the greyed out area on the right to create comes up with a window saying cookies disabled with a grey padlock. When I click on this it tells me the site is certified with a green tick..Have closed safari and thats no good either. – Tracy Mar 1 '11 at 9:23
