    Hi guys, I have a strange problem which getting me crazy with cookies.
    Basically I have problems when trying to login in in the game with Facebook (without having Facebook app on the phone). Since yesterday something popped up 'accept cookies from facebook on this browser?'. Normally I will accept them but I cannot because I cannot scroll down the pop up page to actually hit the accept button. Really don't know what to do, I allow cookies from all my browsers and Im stuck.

    1st picture is from the game which I can accept cookies without problem because game is vertical.........
    2nd picture is from game which is horizontal and I cannot scroll down to accept cookies....

    Pls help anyone
    Thanks

    That might be a ad pop up. Install an ad blocker such as ad guard or no root firewall

    Facebook and poor software design? Yeah, nothing unusual there...

    Thoughts: why is it asking you every time you open a game? The question is "accept cookies from Facebook on this browser?", not "accept cookies from this game", so if the question is correctly describing what it's really asking you'd expect that if you've accepted once it will remember the answer. Of course it may be that you have the browser set to clear cookies on exit (perfectly reasonable, I do it on my browsers), in which case it will ask again. So have you tried going to one of the vertical games, accepting, leaving that and then going to the horizontal game and seeing whether the previous "accept" is remembered?

    Another thing might be to try a different browser. Or select the option to use the desktop site in the browser's settings (or if this is the desktop site, untick that option instead).

    I fear that this is a problem with the site/game rather than the phone, so resetting won't help. That's why I'm trying to think of other things you can try that might change the behaviour.

    Thanks for trying 🤗.
    So I downloaded vertical game, login trough Facebook, obviously accept fck cookies. Quickly go to horizontal and still ask for it. Even I logged out from vertical and login again still ask me to accept them. I have android phones forever and never have this before lol.
    I don't think I have setup to clear cache after exiting, I change browsers, even downloaded desktop browser from Google play.

    Strange it's this pop up because all my life I logged in trough Facebook sometimes while I have the Facebook app on the phone (which is no problems with any cookies) and sometimes without Facebook app. But this pop up looks like (I mean white colour, contrast etc) like Facebook app, even I haven't currently on my phone. When I logged without Facebook app the white color its little bit different so pop up should be different, if you know what I mean.
    I think Im getting crazy lol

    Ok, let's try something simple.

    There are multiple apps that can force the display to be in any format that you choose.

    This may not be ideal for gameplay, but it just might allow you to accept the cookies, and then restart the game in the proper display mode.

    Be sure that you do not have your browser set to delete cookies, or else you will need to do this again, and again, and again...

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pransuinc.screenorientation

    After trying many different ones, this app is my favorite for its purpose, for multiple reasons.

    I just want to add that the app I mentioned above will force ANY other app into whatever screen mode you desire, even if that app is set up to only work in one mode.

    This can help in your case, but the game may not be playable (due to how it may be on the screen) until the screen orientation app is turned off (or at least set in the game's preferred mode) and the game is restarted.

    Well mate you made my day 👍👍👍👍👍👍 works like a charm but I think I have selected option to clear cache because after closing the game and opening again still have to accept them. At least I know where to look. Big Thanks 😁

    I'm sorry, but I have no idea about Chrome, as I don't like it or use it.

    Perhaps a better browser is in order?

    There is one that I have used for years, and in fact multiple other browsers are actually copycats of it.

    Some have more features than the original, even up to the point of being a full fledged downloader and browser combined.

    Cookies are a couple of simple settings in the Privacy area of the settings.

    Lightning (Lightweight web browser) - https://f-droid.org/packages/acr.browser.lightning

    And as for the location of the items in your above post, it looks to me that those come from the settings of your actual Facebook account- not any app at all.

    These settings are global, no matter if you change them while using a browser or another app.

    You need to enter your settings on your account on Facebook in order to find those.

    I tried everything from this thread, nothing worked.

    But I did found something thats working!

    Just change your font size to small or extra small and you will be able to accept those cookies!
    Enjoy! :D:D
