Specific message is: This page isn't redirecting properly Firefox has dected 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 alike problem: I can access my account on Google+ or YouTube but when I try access GMail or Calendar I see error message about invalid redirect to https://accounts.google.com/CookieMismatch ("server redirects to this address in such way that request will never complete") with comment that this error usually occures when cookies are disabled. But I see that cookies are enabled in FireFox Setup. What's wrong?

No, it goes right to that error page, thanks for the note, though.

I'm getting this error of my Mac OS X Version 10.6.8. Tried clearing cookies etc and it doesn't work.

Going to https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLogin? works but even after logging in, if I click on "gmail" at the top, it gives the same error.

Very frustrating. This works fine on Chrome and I'm trying to switch over from Chrome to firefox.

Any help appreciated.
