FF 11 not showing Google Calendar unless logged in
Only happens in FF 11. Clearing cache and cookies doesn't help. Disabling add-ons doesn't help. If you're logged in to gmail, calendar loads fine until you delete the login cookie.

Calender is a Google service that requires you to be logged in. Can you be more specific?
There's a pubic sharing option that I've always used. It always worked until upgrading to FF 11 last night. It continues to work in all other browsers. Now it only shows in FF 11 when you've logged in to calendar.google.com and fails again after the google login cookie is removed.
Try this in FF 11 and other browsers:

Sorry about the wait, I had some backend PC issues. Anyway, I am running FF11 and the calender loads fine for me. Please clear your cache and tell me whether this fixes your issue.
As I said originally, I did that. Clear your google.com cookies and try again.
Link works for me. Close page, clear google.com cookies, click link again, works again.
Do you have any recently created or updated privacy-related add-ons that could be relevant? To bypass add-ons, you could try starting Firefox in Safe Mode.
First, save any work (e.g., email messages you're composing, purchases). Then use Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled. In the Safe Mode dialog, don't check any boxes, simply click the Continue in Safe Mode button.
Does that make any difference?
No. Same as when I tried that earlier. It all centers around a couple google.com cookies, but there may be others as well (gmail, etc.).
It appears that google is using a user-agent string to decide what calendar app to give me, but if google sees a certain couple of cookies, it doesn't use that user-agent string in the same way.
"Link works for me. Close page, clear google.com cookies, click link again, works again."
Me, too... until I refresh.
Does it work if you temporarily switch to Private Browsing mode?
That should give you a fresh set of cookies.
Flipping the "Always use private browsing mode" setting should be sufficient to test that.
- Tools > Options > Privacy, choose the setting Firefox will: Use custom settings for history
- [ ] "Always use private browsing mode"
No, sorry. No google.com cookie appears.
After about 20 refreshes, a google.com "S" cookie appeared, the calendar loaded, and nuking said cookie reverted to inability to load the calendar. and no cookie being set.
I did it again... this time it took 6 refreshes to make the cookie appear and the calendar load.
I'm sorry no one has responded before now. If you are still having this problem, please try running your browser in safe mode by following these instructions. This may fix your problem, as it will reset several settings that could be causing trouble. Also, please reset your theme to the default one by clicking Firefox > Add-ons > Appearance. This may fix your problem.
