Forgive me if this post is in the wrong section but I am trying to find a solution for a problem my father is having. Whenever he attempts to sign into his My Yahoo account he gets the following error message, "The browser you're using refuses to sign in. (cookies rejected)". This only happens when trying to access his account through Google Chrome. I have no problems whatsoever when I attempt to sign into my own My Yahoo account on the same MBP. I have tried clearing all his browsing data, cookies etc to no avail. In addition to the MBP on which he is currently having this issue he owns a 24" iMac which signs him into his My Yahoo account no problem. I have tried searching for info on the error message he receives each time but only find references to this problem when using IE. We NEVER use IE.
