I am using Firefox 107.0.1 on a Windows 10 machine. And, I am not able to login to the SSA website (US) using Firefox. I reviewed the answers in the post (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354403) and tried several of the possible solutions (safe mode, rename/delete profile, reboot computer, etc) without any luck. I've attached a screenshot of the error when trying to login using Firefox.

Strangely, I've used Firefox exclusively to login (latest, maybe 6 months ago) before with no problem. It appears it is only when I currently am using Firefox. This is because I am able to use MS Edge without a problem.

Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you, Chris

You can check for issues with Total Cookie Protection.


This issue can be caused by corrupted cookies or blocked cookies.

You can try these steps in case of issues with webpages:

You can reload webpage(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
  • press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)

Clear the Cache and remove the Cookies for websites that cause problems via the "3-bar" Firefox menu button (Settings).

"Remove the Cookies" for websites that cause problems:

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Data"

"Clear the Cache":

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> [X] Cached Web Content -> Clear

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window

Coincidentally, I am not able to view this webpage (https://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/cnn.heroes/vote/10/#) either. A spinning circle of dots at the top of the page appear and then disappear in less than a second.

You need to provide the URL your using so others can verify if this is Browser or site or Addon issue causing this. Also Edge and Chrome aren't the same browser as Firefox as they are programmed to function differently and have more support for updates for their own Browser.

Dropa,

Thank you for your reply. Here is the URL to the US SSA website:

(https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/)

I believe you will have to create (or have) an account in order to sign in.

Also, as mentioned is another URL that I'm not able to open:

(https://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/cnn.heroes/vote/10/#)

That CNN web page does not require one to have an account. And, it may be the same problem I am having with the SSA web page?

Thank you again, Chris
