    @willem.deboer, using firefox, go to your wp-login.php page (or your home page) and then do the following:
    1. Press Shift+F2 to bring up the Developer toolbar.
    2. Type in: cookie list
    3. Press enter, and look for a test cookie (or any cookie) from your site.

    Let us know what happens.

    @cam Thank you. No cookies found ….

    @willem.deboer — Hmmm. That would be a significant problem.

    Something is blocking your cookies. Do you have any adware blocking programs on your computer that would stop cookies before they even reach your browser?

    ~Cam

    @amsgator yes they are. If I go to linkedin.com there’s a whole bunch of cookies set.

    @cam not that I know of. Spybot search & destroy and Windows Defender. I’m on Windows 8.1, by the way. And LinkedIn cookies are coming through fine, it appears.

    That’s weird… I’m stumped

    I gotta go, it’s my bedtime. I’ll check back when I wake up and hopefully you get it working. Good luck!

    @amsgator I’m close to stumped too. 🙂

    That makes three of us 🙂 Thank you all for the help, sorry to be such a nuisance …. Sleep well!

    @willem.deboer were you able to add an exception? If so, did that work?
    And, have you set to “Accept 3rd party cookies”? (not needed for the test cookie, but I am curious if something else is at work on your system.)

    Other things to test.
    1. Does it work with another computer, but still at your home?
    2. Or another computer (at work or at a friends house)?

    While unlikely, I wonder if something in your host is blocking cookies for just your site. I would have no way to test this, and I haven’t heard of it happening, but it’s about the only thing I have left that I can think of.

    No exception present. It does not work on any computer at home. All end with the blank screen. I used my Android phone to test what happens outside my own network (wifi off :-), no joy either. I have the funny feeling this gmail.css is the clue, but no idea where it comes from. I searched my webspace and my local computer.
    It’s a pain. I just received new artwork and I cannot edit my pages to put it in. Nor update plugins, theme or WordPress itself.

    @willem.deboer — Looking back through the thread, I have one last idea before having to take off for my day:

    It appeared that the white screen started when you added @mirajas code into your functions of your theme file. If it is still there, I would remove it since it duplicates my mu-plugin fix, which you said you had applied.

    Beyond this, check if your webhost has backups, and revert your site (files) to 2 weeks ago (before any of these edits). If it is still broken, check for cookies being placed (especially on the wp-login.php page). If nothing is placed, then you could try reinstalling WP over itself (except for the wp-content folder) and see if anything else was change inadvertently.

    If all this doesn’t work, I will be officially stumped. 🙂

    I just installed WordPress and cant login because cookie problem. I tried to change login-php – but then I get to the white page. I use Chrome, I tried on Ie an Firefox on mobile – the same.
    If I undestand it right – I just sett // before lines 744-746?

    I tried to change functions.php too, but I dont have any site yet and theme, så probably thats why it didnt worked for me easer.
    When I go to http://www.mydomane.no, s̴ I get some default theme РI hadnot chanse to change anything on.

    Any sugestions? Or anyone can recommend another online site-editor that works? I dont have site yet, I am here because everybody told me Word Press is easy… Right. 😉

    @mariaa I’m having exactly the same problems. To defend WordPress, my sites have been running problem free for almost two years.
    Somehow, something has gone wrong in the last version, 3.7.1.
    If you read this thread from the beginning and try the solutions, they may work for you.
