I received this message yesterday:

'''Dear Administrator,

Starting on March 24, 2022 Accessing Google accounts with a browser that does not support JavaScript or that has JavaScript turned off does not allow Google to run a complete risk analysis. This puts your organization's accounts at increased risk of phishing and takeover by malicious actors.

users will no longer be able to sign into their Google accounts on browsers that do not support JavaScript or that have JavaScript turned off. This means they won’t be able to access Google Workspace services, such as Gmail and Drive, unless they change to browsers supporting JavaScript or turn it on in their current browsers.

Firefox has built-in support for JavaScript (since the beginning). If it is disabled in your browser, about half the sites on the internet will fail or complain about it. So probably that is just a general advisory and not a comment on your personal browser situation.

I agree that this may just be a general notice of the upcoming change on Google accounts sites.
