after updating firefox, gmail does not recognize my browser and cannot login. is there anyway to roll back so gmail will recognize the old browser?

Posted

I finally updated to the new version of firefox, and lo and behold gmail thinks im on a new device that it doesnt know. as such, i cannot log in and do not remember some ancient security questions. It of course suggests I log in from a familiar device or browser. So my question is, having updated it a few days ago and importing my old profile... is there any way to to roll back or get whatever it is firefox has that gmail would recognize my old browser as the usual? Its all quite embarrassing being locked out of my old gmail. If its impossible to do anything from the firefox end then thats that. Thanks.

Hi Lost Kitten, If you set up a secondary email account for Gmail, just tell it that you forgot your password. They'll send you a password reset link.
