I cannot open my gmail account. Why is this? I have already used the allow cookies thing. I have tried things already suggested. It worked yesterday Help?
When I try to open my gmail account it says it cannot open. It say: "The page isn't redirecting properly
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."
I have tried the suggested things, such as going to the "tools" and opening "privacy" and clicking on "use custom settings,etc. but it did not help. It worked yesterday, so I don't know why it is suddenly not working. I don't have this problem with chrome so I assume it is a firefox issue. Can anyone help? Thank you

Perform the suggestions mentioned in the following articles:
- Clear Cookies & Cache
- Clear the Network Cache
- Use the "Remember History" setting as described in this article -> Settings for privacy, browsing history and do-not-track
See this article -> Options windows - Advanced panel
- Remove Checkmark from "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page" listed in General panel -> Accessibility settings
- Restart Firefox
Check and tell if its working.
If clearing the cookies doesn't help then it is possible that the file cookies.sqlite that stores the cookies is corrupted.
Rename (or delete) cookies.sqlite (cookies.sqlite.old) and delete other present cookie files like cookies.sqlite-journal in the Firefox Profile Folder in case the file cookies.sqlite got corrupted.
Thank you It worked. I can now open my gmail account.
