Yes, after upgrading my PC to Linux / Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, I also have this problem when logging in to my gmail account >

¨The browser you're using doesn't support JavaScript, or has JavaScript turned off. To keep your Google Account secure, try signing in on a browser that has JavaScript turned on¨.

I tried the Firefox browser about:config and confirmed the javascript.enabled was set to "True". then refreshed the browser, but still same response from gmail!

Any suggestions?

What I see is that if you had No Script as turned off in the PC Windows 10 Web version of Firefox it is being installed on the update of Android Firefox as active. Bad programming or No-script programmers are hacking the software to install on android. I don't know which is the culprit. I removed No-script and JavaScript error was fixed, I think? Looks like it! At least the Eagle APP works but I still can not log-in the APP Online from the PC Login works but not the APP.

Hi I'm having the same problem. Can't log into gmail or youtube. I can see youtube but not log in with my id.

Have looked at my Firefox addons / plugins and disabled all of them. There's no sign of 'no-script'. I then quit and restarted Firefox and tried logging into youtube again but the same problem occurred.

The message I'm getting is: Couldn’t sign you in The browser you’re using doesn’t support JavaScript, or has JavaScript turned off. To keep your Google Account secure, try signing in on a browser that has JavaScript turned on.

Any ideas?

I was able to fix this problem by purging the cache and all the cookies. Worked again straight away.
