Can't login to facebook (says I need to enable cookies)

Hi
I'm having trouble logging into facebook. It says
"Cookies Required

Cookies are not enabled on your browser. Please adjust this in your security preferences before continuing."



But I've enabled cookies, and tried logging in again. But it still doesn't work. I've also tried adding login.facebook.com and www.facebook.com to the allow sites but it still doesn't work!

Any ideas?

Nevermind, I restarted firefox and it worked again. Hhmm, should always try "Well have you tried turning it off and on again" or some variation

Sometimes third-party cookies are required I've found. Same with gmail.

Hhmm, well another problem has popped up, when I use the simple photo uploader, when the photo has finished uploading, it goes to the login page, asking for my login and password. When I go to www.facebook.com, I'm already logged in so I dont know why it thinks I need to log in again.

The only thing I can think of is that I used ccleaner* for the first and only time in between facebook working normally and when its 'broken'. Is it possible for ccleaner to have removed something that cannot be recreated which is causing this? I wouldn't think so...

*do only n00bs use this? I normally would have thought so, but some people in forums said it removes temp files which aren't normally removed through disk cleanup.
