When I navigate to mail.google.com, Firefox used to automatically log me into my Gmail account, however since I updated to the latest version of firefox. I continually get the error The page isn't redirecting properly appear on firefox. It works fine when I access it from IE. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have also checked that browser is accepting cookies

I had the same problem, other browsers were ok, just Firefox was failing.

I found it was enough to remove just the cookies for google.com.
