More iframe issues; now with Google Maps. Has this been addressed?
I received an e-mail with an embedded Google Maps snapshot. Underneath is a link "Click for larger map". A Firefox window opens with this message: "The Google Maps Embed API must be used in an iframe." The rest of the page is blank.
Is this another settings issue regarding iframes, or is this a feature that has been ended?
Using Firefox 68.0.2 (64-bit) on a Dell OptiPlex 5060 running Windows 10 Pro (64 bit).

Hi ed9213, does the link work better in other browsers? If so, are they resolving/redirecting to the same URL in the new window/tab?
I bit the bullet and temporarily made Microsoft Edge my default browser. When going to the same site and clicking the same link, “The Google Maps Embed API must be used in an iframe.” is the message produced.
Does that help?
Hi Ed9213, if it's not a top secret location, do you want to the URL of the page with the error? Maybe the person sharing the link made a mistake and the link only works for them...
It is, actually, a secure URL so I can't post it or pass it along. I'm not sure I even have the access to address the webmaster. I thought it was a browser issue at my end. If it isn't, I'll probably have to figure out who has the path to the right people to correct it. Thanks.
You can try to force to open the link in an iframe with code in the Web Console.
var loc=location.href; var uri='data:text/html;charset=utf-8;base64,'; ifr='<html><head><title>[IFRAME]</title></head><body height="100%"><iframe id="iframe" src="'+loc+'" height="95%" width="100%"></iframe></body></html>'; location.href=uri+btoa(ifr);
