How do I change the default google account page that pops up in Firefox? It's no longer active and I can't log in.

Posted

My former employer used G-suite for everything. That email address is no longer active for me. I can't figure out how to get Google - in Firefox - to let me log in to my personal Gmail account. Everytime someone sends me a Google-related link that I try to open in Firefox, it wants me to log into my old, inactive account.

Hi tracycowden, most likely that information is retained in a Google cookie. You can clear your Google cookies and then try the link again.

While viewing the Google sign-in page, click the lock icon at the left end o the address bar to open the Site Information panel. At the bottom of the panel, click Clear Cookies and Site Data... to call up a dialog where you can clear your Google cookies.

Then close that sign-in page and try the link again. Any improvement?
