Hmm, maybe you should follow the instructions given by the error? – RaYell Aug 19 '09 at 14:42
are you trying to modify the form to not need cookies, or are you trying to figure out how to turn on cookies in your browser? – atk Aug 19 '09 at 14:42
I think he asks how to turn cookies on – Svetlozar Angelov Aug 19 '09 at 14:44

I think you need to turn the cookies in your browser on. What browser are you using? In FF, go to Tools > Options > Privacy. You can configure your settings there. In IE go to Tools > Internet Options > Privacy and set your security level to allow the cookies you want. Probably you'll have to lower your security level as well, but then again, IE was never the safest browser.

I've had the "cookie functionality disabled" error before on Gmail too, despite having cookies enabled. In the end it just went away without any real reason why it had come up in the first place at all.

If you're using Chrome as your browser, you can configure your cookie settings by going to the wrench icon, then selecting Options, the Under The Hood tab, and then scrolling down to Cookie Settings (at the bottom of the Privacy section). For best compatibility with web page, you should set it to Allow All Cookies.

You can try setting it to Restrict ... if you have security concerns - most sites should still work okay, but if they have issues you might need to change the setting to Allow All Cookies.
