Hi, I am running Firefox 81.0.2 on iMac with macOS 10.15.6 and I am very satisfied, but lately the search on Google Maps is returning "Server error. Please try again later". It works fine if using Safari.

Thank you,

Luke

Hi, You can try reload the webpage and refresh cache, maybe have some outdated or corrupted files. If you are using iMac try to press "Command + Shift + R"

Or try to "Remove the Cookies" for websites that cause problems: - Click on the "3-bar" Firefox menu button (Options/Preferences) - Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Data"

Or try to "Clear the Cache": Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> Cached Web Content: Clear

This issue can be caused by corrupted cookies or blocked cookies.

Clear the Cache and remove the Cookies for websites that cause problems via the "3-bar" Firefox menu button (Options/Preferences).

"Remove the Cookies" for websites that cause problems:

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Data"

"Clear the Cache":

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> Cached Web Content: Clear

If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block content (Adblock Plus, NoScript, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin) always make sure such extensions do not block content.

Firefox shows a purple shield instead of a gray shield at the left end of the location/address bar in case Enhanced Tracking Protection is blocking content. You can click shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection. You can check the Web Console for messages about blocked content.

Clearing all cache and cookies, then restarting firefox does not solve the problem. LB
