PROBLEM ACCESSING MY GMAIL VIA FIREFOX

My wife and I both have (separate) Gmail accounts – we access them on Win 10 computers, using Firefox. I have set up two Firefox “buttons” (one for each Gmail address), both of which worked perfectly – until today!

Now, when I click on EITHER of the two Gmail “buttons” I get ONLY my wife’s email! I CAN access my own Gmail with either my Android phone OR using the Edge browser however!

So far as I can see, nothing has changed with the two URLs (a different one for each button) – I’ve tried setting up a ‘new’ button from scratch and just using 'my' URL in the search bar but both still give the same result – my wife’s email account!

HELP!!

I've solved it myself! I found the clue in a previous query/answer at:

He's right that the answer is in the "cookies" (AND that you can - alternatively - access the second gmail account via a "private window"), but wrong that you can't have two separate "buttons" on your Firefox "New Tab" page and so need to jump through other hoops.

First, delete the "defective" Firefox "button" then, via Firefox "Settings", delete the cookies for google.com. Then, go to your first Gmail account and manually open your second email account. THEN copy the resulting URL and paste THAT into a new Firefox "button". Voila! It works!
