Google is blocking Firefox, and the message on my screen is: "We're sorry...but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now".


This happened

Every time Firefox opened

No problems until just now, i didn't make any changes that i am aware of as compared to when everything was working fine.
