Friendster Cookies Error

A cookie error message may mean you can't get on Friendster.

Launched in 2002 by computer programmer Jonathan Abrams, Friendster has grown into a global social gaming platform with over 115 million users. It's a terrific place to make friends, play games and have fun, but only if you're able to get past the bugs. In particular, there's a pesky little critter that causes the message "Not accepting cookies" to appear in your browser Window sometimes when you try to access or log in to Friendster. It's quite annoying, but the good news is that it can be resolved.

Cookie Errors

The cookie error associated with Friendster generally pops up as a result of one of the following conditions:

Corrupt Cookies File

Improper Date
