I DO NOT LIVE IN USA !!

For weeks now I have had repeated problems in signing in to Gmail and Firefox Browser. I am continually being asked to identify myself and to change passwords etc. At the root of the problem appears to be thzt Google or Firefox has decided that I live in USA. I have never even visited USA. I have lived in FRANCE some 25 years. But, someone has decided otherwise and I suspect it is someone with a VPN who keeps changing his address. There is possibly a fault with the latest version of Google which over-writes the French telephone dial code (0033) with a code from USA. My IP address is also changed to a US number. The last time I did a trace I arrived at gchao.com in Florence , Colorado. (23.249.172.213).

I have tried three times to bring this problem to Google but I never receive an answer.

I have three levels of anti-malware in use. The problem appears to principally relate to an HP portable running Windows 10. VIZ ---

Never post any personal information because an adware robot could find it, and start sending you all kinds of spam. This includes e-mail, phone, and home information.

Please remove that information from your post.
