    That was an interesting page.

    Why not stop using Firefox until the issue is fixed. Life is short.

    I agree. That is why I have gone to Google Chrome. I can make desktop or folder shortcuts by drag/drop URL or files, I can login to chrome, AOL, and gmail, and though a bit different it is a lot easier than trying to fix Firefox and according to what I have read not many if any have been able to fix it anyway. Maybe it is just the version 69.0.1. My previous versions were fine but I do not know how to go back to them or if I even want to. Happy with Chrome and t seems good. I do like Firefox because i has the menu bar but I do not really need that anyway. I agree life is too short to waste it by trying to fix Firefox. I am sure I changed no settings. Just went to v.69.0.1 and things quit working like I was used to.

    Guess I've been lucky FF works with my gmail and all the Google sites. I have FF 69.0.1 (64 bit) I am using it on Linux Mint don't know if that makes a difference or not. I am also running privacy badger and uBlock Origin plus Malwarebytes browser guard.

    This link

    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1004749
    Is from 2014!
    So it doesn't apply at all. FF was at v 27 through 30 in that time period.
    Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox_version_history#Firefox_24_through_30

    The top links I opened at DuckDuckGo are from 2012, 2014 and 2015. You have to look at dates when you read things because solutions from 4 to 7 years earlier don't apply to a completely different version of Firefox.

    One link I opened is from 2008!

    Truthfully, I'm not seeing current problems with gmail and Firefox.

    I have just tried and successfully accessed my google and gmail account using FF 69.0.1

    With all the configuring that you have preformed in FF could be the issue.

    Have you tried resetting all the configuration in FF and then try it still the same issue do a refresh or safe mode DO NOT make any change and try again.

    Last case (still making no changes) remove and reinstall and try see if that work.

    Are you using a short cut off the desktop and or a bookmark and or typing in manually the address?

    I admit never looking at dates. Just desperate to find a quick fix I guess. Sorry. But still wondering if it really is worth all the trouble in the first place.

    I liked the Firefox when it was working but since it wasn't and nothing I did seemed t work I finally just uninstalled it. Did not want to go back to a previous version so for now I will just use Chrome. Maybe I will reinstall it later. No trouble when I first updated to that version.

    I asked an internet friend who uses FF 69.0.1 and he has never had a problem signing into gmail on any of the computers in the house. (they run Windows 7).

    FF has been updated to v 69.0.2 om Oct. 3rd.

    Maybe I will try that version. Been using FF a long time and never had any issues. Soon after I updated to FF 69.0.1 I started having problems.
