The most common cause of this as noted on the login page is "Important:

otherwise none of your changes will take effect."

If you're sure your browser is accepting cookies, it may be that a
local firewall or something similar is interfering with setting and
returning cookies.

Most of the other reasons for this kind of behavior are on the server
side, but in this case, we know the server side works as long as you
accept and return the cookie.
