Warning:A browser setting is preventing you from logging in.

When I tried to post on a site, it said,"Warning:A browser setting is preventing you from logging in. Fix this setting to log in." How do I fix the setting to log in?

That issue can be caused by corrupted cookies.
Also make sure that you do not block the cookies from that site.

Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.
"Clear the Cache":
  • Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"
"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:
  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies" 

In order to properly log you in, your browser needs to accept cookies from all domains.
Open up Settings > Privacy. Then, make sure Accept cookies from sites is checked. Also, make sure Accept third-party is checked as well.
After closing your settings, you may try logging in again.
Optional: If you would rather add an exception just for Disqus, click “Exceptions...” and add disqus.com as an allowed domain.
