When I signed in, a statement appeared blaming my browser for not accepting cookies. I removed all checkmarks in the default setting for cookies in my preferences, but the same message was repeated. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Sign in to yahoo.com email, if you have an account. 2. 3. Actual Results: Text appears stating that My browser does not accept cookies. Therefore I cannot be given access to my account. Expected Results: I woould have seen a listing of any mail in my Yahoo in-box. My granddaughter, who is visiting us now, first reported that she could not access her Yahoo account. So I tried with my own account.
I had the same problem. It really is a cookie issue. Look through your cookie manager for sites that are blocked. If you find anything like "mail.yahoo.com" in the blocked sites, that's your problem. It can be blocked as a separate site from yahoo.com, and it will prevent you from looking at your e-mail. Once you have deleted this as a blocked site, you should be in good shape. Hope this helps.
Daniel, could you please test what John suggested in comment #1 and report back? Thanks.
