Gmail endless login loop (but only in Firefox)

Hi

I've been having an issue logging into Gmail using Firefox. I've used both Gmail and Firefox for years and have never had a problem, but I now get stuck in an endless loop on the Gmail login page. I select my account, enter my password, then get sent back to the account selection page.

The problem seems to be relating to me trying to link two Gmail addresses so that mail from one is forwarded to the other. I set up one account this way without any issue, but when I went to do it with a different account, I got an error code. After that, I was logged out of Gmail in Firefox and haven't been able to log back in.

Things I've tried so far:

  • Using a different browser. I can log in without issues in Chrome.
  • Logging in with a different method. Neither my password nor my passkey work.
  • Logging in with a different Gmail account. All of my accounts seem to be stuck in this way.
  • Disabling all my extensions. This doesn't help.
  • Clearing Firefox's cache. No luck here.
  • Restarting Firefox and restarting my PC. Turning it off and on again doesn't fix it.
  • Contacting Google support. They said they think it's a browser issue as I don't have any problems using Chrome.
  • Using Firefox's private browsing mode. This does work and I can log in to Gmail. However, I don't know exactly what the problem is because I've disabled all my extensions and cleared the cache in regular browsing mode and still can't log in that way.

So I have a partial solution (using Firefox's private browsing mode) but it's not a long-term fix. What else can I try? Has anyone else seen this problem before and been able to fix it?

Firefox Version: 124.0.2 (64 bit) Windows Version: Windows 10 LTSC 2019 (Version 1809)

When I right click the taskbar and press close Firefox, here comes the interface just as the screenshot uploaded. The blue close button doesn't response no matter how I click it and the Firefox's taskbar is flashing yellow. This bug only occurs on the first window of Firefox and only when user right click the taskbar.

It has been a long time for me wishing that some updates would be released soon to fix this issue, while noting happens. Or this bug is only for me?

How to reproduce the bug: Jump to the address bar, and then press shift, ctrol, alt or windows_start, you can see the address getting deleted. You can also see it in Google Sheets and Microsoft Excel Online, it just deletes the cell, or a selection of multiple cells. --Interestingly on Google Docs it doesn't delete but just move the cursor to the first character when a string is selected.

 It happens only once per mouse click, or focus change

What I expect: Shift, Control or any mod key should not delete content or move a cursor

Thanks!

I'm using MacOS Sonoma 14.4.1 and recently, my browser has started freezing up for several minutes. It seems that the culprit is the "fontd" process because when I open Activity Manager that process spikes to %50 to %80 CPU usage. Killing the process does nothing and quitting out of Firefox does nothing either. I made sure Firefox is fully updated, but still nothing. I'm not sure whether it's a problem with my Macbook Pro's fonts or if it's a problem with Firefox, but I'd like my browser to be reliable.

Does anyone know what might be causing this issue or what I can do to resolve it?

can anyone of you test chat open ai com with linux 32 bits?

for more than 5-7 months its been unusable. it completely freeze. I recently reported this to open ai devs and they tried to do something. Now page responds is in 20-60 seconds range.

means, I open website, i wait 20-60 seconds to load. I ask chat gpt something, i wait 20-60 to actually type my messsage (for my message to be printed after I hit enter). then i refresh page (because nothing moves), wait 20-60 secs to load page and I see the reply.

and yes, each time I was always trying to do with latest version of browser. and I also tried it on a new browser without any extension.

I have a video, I can only share it private with firefox devs if helps.

the reason I didn't reported this last year, was because I got extremely disappointed and unhappy.

it initially started by showing that button-bar at the top, telling that page load slow and to [stop]. by the next month it became worst than 2000's dialup internet, so I stopped using it

My Firefox recently updated to version 124.0.2. Afterwards my taskbar shortcut broke, so I pinned a new one manually (right-clicked Firefox in start menu > open file location.) When I opened Firefox it had reset the primary profile to be default, so I changed it back to my BetterFox profile. Since then I've run into several oddities, such as Firefox crashing when it's running in the background, getting an error saying "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window," when I try to open it, invisible shortcuts in my taskbar(see image) and my bookmark visibility resetting from always to only in new tab every time I start up Firefox. Please help me.

About 1 week ago Firefox with Windows 11 stopped displaying YouTube video comments. I've tried other browsers and I can see the comments.

I only have 6 extensions and have disabled all of them and still have the problem. With Firefox in safe mode the problem goes away and I can see the comments. I've cleared the Firefox cache and hardware acceleration is off. I have the standard themes and using the default system theme-auto.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this problem? Thank you.

I have an RDS Server that i have been asked by my business to stop a certain user account from accessing the internet. An easy way to do is this to restrict the user account to the firefox.exe file. Should be nice and easy, but it isnt unfortunately.

If i set the Deny permission on the firefox.exe, or on the parent directory, C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox directory, at some point shortly thereafter, the permissions are completely reset and the user account i set to "Deny" has disappeared.

This is frustrating as the user will just open Firefox and start browsing again.

I know there are other ways of dealing with this user, but clearly that is not why i am on this forum.

Has anyone had any luck circumventing this and perhaps explain why the Firefox application "repairs" permissions on its directory automatically ?

TIA

Hi, I can't read some DRM protected media anymore (Prime video, Spotify) in Firefox in Windows10.

The error I get say that firefox doesn't have Widevine installed (but it does).

I can read the content with other browsers (Brave) so the problem is not Windows Media Foundation i guess?

What I already tried:

-untoggling/toggling Widevine in plugins

-reinstalling firefox and using a new profile

-using Firefox Nightly

-removing the drm folder from the profile and relaunching firefox

Linux-ESR versions 115.8 and 115.9 are constantly crashing in my Acer CB514-2H chromebook. Previous versions of Linux-ESR have worked without any problems. It does work in "safe mode", but not in normal mode with all extensions and plugins disabled. Appears to be related to something that is also disabled in the "safe mode" besides extensions and plugins.

This computer is running a MediaTek Kompanio 828 processor, 8 GB RAM and 64 GB eMMC.

I appreciate any help and advice that you can give me. If I can provide any info, let me know.

Dear Firefox Support Team,

I am experiencing an issue with Firefox where it unexpectedly closes without any warning or generating a crash dialogue. This issue occurs when switching between any tabs, not exclusively ones with active media content such as YouTube, as previously suspected. This problem has persisted across multiple instances, without a discernible pattern or specific tab content causing the issue.

    • Firefox Version:** 124.0.2
    • Operating System:** Ubuntu 23.10, Linux 6.5.0-27-generic
    • Extensions/Themes:** [Provide a list of enabled extensions, or note if the issue persists in Safe Mode]
    • Recent Changes:** [Mention any recent system or Firefox updates]
    • Graphics Card:** NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, Driver Version 535.161.07
    • Steps to Reproduce:**

1. Open Firefox with multiple tabs. 2. Switch between various tabs. 3. Observe that Firefox occasionally closes unexpectedly without any crash report dialogue.

    • Attempted Solutions:**

- Checked `about:crashes` with no submitted crash reports found. - Monitored for errors using the Browser Console but found nothing consistently leading to the issue. - Attempted running Firefox in Safe Mode to rule out extension-related issues. - Disabled hardware acceleration to see if it impacts the occurrence, with no change.

    • Relevant Logs and IDs:**

- **Crash IDs:** N/A as no crash reports have been generated. - **Console Errors:** No specific errors noted that correlate directly with the issue. - **about:support Data(sanitised):**Name: Firefox Version: 124.0.2 Build ID: 20240401114208 Distribution ID: mozilla-deb Update Channel: release User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:124.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/124.0 OS: Linux 6.5.0-27-generic OS Theme: Generic Application Binary: /usr/lib/firefox/firefox-bin Profile Directory: [Generic Profile Directory] Build Configuration: about:buildconfig Memory Use: about:memory Performance: about:processes Registered Service Workers: about:serviceworkers Multiprocess Windows: 1/1 Fission Windows: 1/1 Enabled by default Remote Processes: 14 Enterprise Policies: Inactive Google Location Service Key: Found Google Safebrowsing Key: Found Mozilla Location Service Key: Found Safe Mode: false Memory Size (RAM): 15.4 GB Disk Space Available: 1,468 GB Profiles: about:profiles
