    I have a problem when I try to log in to Facebook on my Galaxy S2. Everytime I try, it says 'Cookies are not enabled on your browser. Please adjust this in your security prefences before continuing' and just won't let me in. According to internet settings cookies ARE enabled. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Ok I did exactly what you said to do and it's still not working unfortunately. It still says cookies need to be enabled. Any other ideas?

    Stock browser or a different browser? Also, Facebook mobile or desktop website? Lastly, any reason you don't wan to use the app? (last question isn't a big deal, it's still a good idea to troubleshoot this issue in case it has problems with other websites).

    Apologies for the late reply.

    I'm using a stock browser and the Facebook mobile website. I don't use the Facebook android app because it isn't very good. What's another browser I could try for Android?

    Are you having these cookie issues on other websites? Lately, the desktop Facebook website has had a difficult time remembering my login and I have to login every visit. FB is making a lot of changes right now and that could be the issue.

    The Android app was recently improved. Give it another try.

    This same issue has happened to me on my Galaxy S2 and is now happening on the Galaxy S3. I have Facebook for Android app installed and have no problem logging into Facebook through the app, Facebook Messenger and the Facebook Widget on the Home Screen, but when I attempt to login through other apps, like IMDb, Flipboard, Pulse News, etc., I get the "cookies not enabled" error.

    I've searched the internet for a solution, and there are LOTS of people who are experiencing this error and no one has posted a solution, even as far back as 3 years.

    Is this a problem that can't be resolved?
