Tried them, no help there. However I think I've found a fix.

I am now able to view other areas of ebay by adding each url to trusted sites and unchecking require server verification.

So far this works for the following:

Presumably there will be others to add to the list.

Should I be concerned about unchecking https?

Better than yours

Hi not sure if this is still relevant I had the same problem and after reading your posts I was able to come up with the solution.

To fix it open IE goto Tools > internet Options > Security and then reset all zones to default levels close then restart ie and all should be fine again.

I have no idea what caused it.. I didn't mess with those settings to require them being reset but it worked!

Problem: Inability to login to My eBay repeatedly in a new Windows 7 system on 2-24-2010
Solution: Reset your cookies parameter to 'accept all cookies'. The problem is resolved immediately.

I hate to admit this, but it took me three hours to figure out where the problem was located. Eventually a message came up on the eBay login page telling me to 'reset cookies to the lowest security setting' Duh!

Same sh... different day

Well actually not just a different day but different alltogether!

I am experiencing the same phenomenon using Opera 9.6.3 on Ubuntu 9.04. Everything is exactly (!) the same:

- LogIn screen after entering credentials brings me back to same (empty) login screen.

- Credentials are o.k. and work with other browser. In fact even with Opera I can see that credentials are ok, because I get no error screen (as surely I do when entering bad credentials).

- Deleting coockies using browser or directly on file system won't help.

- I do get logged in and I can go to myEbay or other pages if I know the URL

It did happen before, than disappeared for a long time. Now it is back. Strange!

Fixed Ebay endless login loop

Deleting cookies does not delete cookies exceptions. This is where I had ebay cookies blocked.

I had the same for other sites. Removed all of the 'blocked' exceptions to cookies.

Ongoing Ebay login problems with IE

There is an ongoing login problem with ebay and IE. Login runs in a loop and never works. Other browsers are working fine. This is a long-term problem which neither ebay nor Microsoft seems to be addressing. It is not a cache/cookies/virus software problem. It is something going on between ebay and MS.
