ttps://accounts.google.com/CookieMismatch - I have followed the help guide but this still appears when I try to access my home page - any ideas?
When I logged in yesterday instead of my usual homepage I had an error message:
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

It sounds as though you might have tried tried these, but just in case: When you have a problem with one particular site, a good "first thing to try" is clearing your Firefox cache and deleting your saved cookies for the site.
(1) Bypass Firefox's Cache
Use Ctrl+Shift+r to reload the page fresh from the server.
(You also can clear Firefox's cache completely using:
orange Firefox button or Tools menu > Options > Advanced
On the Network mini-tab > Cached Web Content : "Clear Now")
(2) Remove your google.com cookies (save any pending work first) using either of these:
- While viewing a page on the site, right-click and choose View Page Info > Security > "View Cookies"
- Alt+t (open the classic Tools menu) > Page Info > Security > "View Cookies"
Then try reloading the page. Does that help?
