google sheets showing "you are logged in as xxx" everytime I open one

Posted

I am having several gmail inboxes pinned to my FF browser as I need to monitor/work with them. I am logged in with several accounts therefore. Since one of the latest updates to FF it constantly shows on the top-right of nearly every google sheet (most are shared not my own) "you are currently logged in as xxx" Yes I know that I do not need that reminder so how do I get rid of that pop up? I am getting fed up with clicking ok all the time! Thanks for any tips.

Hello McCoy, thanks for that, I was giving Google the benefit of the doubt but in vain. Well that is that shred of credit lost with me for them... Such an annoying thing! If car manufacturers would introduce a "do you really want to start the engine now" button they would be out of business faster than you count one-two...

As a possible workaround you can use a Private Browsing mode window and sign in to only one Google account to avoid getting this alert or use a separate profile for Google docs if you always use your primary email.
