AWWW geez....so Microsoft wants to screw up logging in more than it already is messed up.
Damn good thing that I set up a local user account instead of using my Microsoft account when I got this Win 8 computer as I can't log into my Microsoft account using IE 10! I have no problems logging in using Fx 17 ESR but when I logged in just now, I saw something new! I can designate this Win 8 computer as TRUSTED so as to simplfy login to my Microsoft account. Great! But it says I have to login to my account using IE to do this and I was logged in on Fx.
So, I start IE 10 and go to the windows live login page and I get a ridiculous message! It says I don't have cookies enabled. How absurd. Of course, I have cookies enabled! BUT I don't allow third party cookies and require first party ones to ask me each time. I've had these settings since IE 6!
So, I am unable to login to my Microsoft account on Microsoft's own browser and could NOT have set up my Microsoft account to use instead of a local user account when I got this computer had I wanted to do that.
These clowns think double login (which is a MAJOR HASSLE - I have to do it at Chase bank EVERY TIME for about 4-5 months now -no trusted computer anymore at Chase- and I am stopping online banking with them after 12 years because of it) is a good idea yet they are so screwed up that a user is accused of not allowing cookies just because they do block third party ones? I can hardly believe that Microsoft insists on setting THIRD PARTY COOKIES when the user goes to log into their Microsoft account! --
