Firefox won't access my Google profile

Posted

Firefox won't load my Google profile on a Blogspot site I read, so I cannot leave comments, which I used to be able to do. I can go to this site via Internet Explorer, and that does work -- my google profile loads right up and I can post comments. What do I need to change in Firefox so that my google profile can be seen by this site?

Make sure you are not blocking content.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?


One issue that seems more common lately is Firefox's Content Blocking. When it is blocking content in a page, a shield icon will appear at the left end of the address bar next to the padlock icon. This article has more info on managing this feature:

Thank you. Safe Mode worked. After fiddling around with several content blocking icons I discovered, I found "Privacy Badger" was blocking my Google profile. Fixed! Thanks very much indeed
