I tried to download a folder from google drive and got the below error. The download doesnt even start and I am getting this error. I saw many other people also facing this issue and was suggested to add https://googleusercontent.com to cookies exception. But it does not help either. What is this bug? and how can I solve it?

Yes, this has been an ongoing issue for me with GD for sometime. If you turn off ETP(see screenshot) it should work. Also, look at the third party cookies that may be blocked. If you watch the bottom left corner of the browser while trying to download something, you'll see a few more cookies pop up.

I tried that, still the same error persists not sure why. But I am able to download singles file with the ETP enabled. Very weird. Hope firefox solves this.

Did you look to see what 3rd party cookies are being blocked for you?

Is the problem only for ZIP archives? That would be similar to this thread:

https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1365632 (resolved spontaneously without explanation)

About a year ago, it was discovered that "inline disposition" add-ons could cause downloading problems on Google sites, but I don't know whether that has been resolved since then (or maybe it returned?).

I just noticed that with office docs there is no issue, but when trying to download pdfs or images it doesn't work.

You get the third party cookie error? I'm not noticing any problem in a test profile (regular window / default settings) with: individual PDF, individual JPG, zipped PDFs, zipped JPGs. I wonder what the difference is.

Yes, Here are screenshots of cookies allowed, but still blocked.

What's funny is that I got the same 3rd party cookie blocked in Chrome, but after allowing the cookie Chrome worked. see screenshot
