Over the last few days I have been getting a sign in with Google prompt on most websites I visit. Please refer to the photos. This looks identical to the Google generated promt, however in my Google account settings I have this option turned off.

Is this a Google bug or a Firefox thing? With all the other annoying popups these days, this is just another irritation frustration to view a website.

Hi

This does not sound like an issue with Firefox for Android. Some websites allow you to login using your Google Account - this appears to be an example of one.

Hi Paul and thank you for your reply.

I have the setting in my Google account that should be initiating this prompt, turned off. Please refer to the screenshots. So this is exactly my point. Either Google is ignoring my setting, or websites all of a sudden have some new code that ignores this feature. Also I am always signed into my Google account on Android, because I use YouTube alot, and there are no compartments ad-ons for Android.

I have just tested this with both my Google accounts on Chrome Android, and I do not get the sign in with Google prompt.

This looks like a Firefox issue from my end.

I would very much like other people to respond if they have this issue. I am in Australia, and I know that these issues can be regional.

Thank you.

Chrome for Android may be signing you in automatically.

The prompt you are seeing is not part of Firefox for Android - it is a website authentication service provided by Google and used by some websites.

I have just recently started having this issue, too. But I am on a Mac and I don't have a Google account. It is super annoying, pops up on just about every website I come to, including Mozilla.

Is this something that FF is doing, in tandem with Google, as a source of income?

Regardless, what can be done to permanently stop it?

Chrome for Android is not signing me in automatically, this is another Google account setting that I have rechecked and it is still turned off.

The other thing is, if websites are using this Google service, these same websites would have to have access to Google user setting that ask for this prompt to be displayed or not. Regardless of weather the user is signed in to Google or not.

Now I would like to know how websites are able to "read" my Google account settings? Particularly the "Google account Sign-in Prompts" setting.

If I am signed into my Google account, this would make some sense, however If I am not signed in, how could this work. Perhaps IP address or device numbers? Fingerprints? There is something seriously wrong with the modern internet. When it comes to privacy.

How can I open a new "private window" and then do an identical Goggle search on both open windows, and the blue highlights on Google search, indicating I have viewed that pages, are highlighted in both private and non private windows. Doesn't seem very private to me.

I'm not happy giving away even the most basic personal information about my self, to the IOT as this is all collected, and can obviously be used to create a unique profile, and is way more invasive then anything else we do in life, and some people are ik with this??

This is something that the Google support team should be able to help you with.

I don’t have a Google account, and so have nothing to do with Google.

This only happens when I use FF, and it started recently.

I don't mean to be rude Paul, but I find it a little bit arrogant to assume Firefox is not the issue. Firefox is not built on Chrome, and as such, it will never integrate aswell with Google services as browsers based on Chrome.

I have just relized another issues Firefox for Android won't do, and that is the highlight text magnifying feature. There's a very good reason Google Chrome is king, as well as iPhone. And that's that they almost always just seem to work. I am just not willing to give up all my privacy for convenience.

And it ignores the facts that this is happening for those of us who don’t have Google accounts, that it is happening to Mac users, and that it only happens on Firefox.

Is it happening on every single web page that you visit, or only on some of them...?

As mentioned above, this is something that has been set by the pages that you are visiting - it is not something that is in Firefox.

Guess where FF gets all its money?

Hi - Newbie here and this is my first post - I came looking for support on this issue. I've just switched to using Firefox as my main browser, and was annoyed to find that my preference as set in google settings, to turn off these prompts is (perhaps) not being respected by firefox.

This is an important point.......

It seems it is achieved with cross-site cookies. When you go to myaccount.google.com, navigate to Security, and click "Signing in with Google." Then disable the toggle next to "Google account Sign-in Prompts" this toggle should prevent you from being nagged, and it works. However, it possibly uses cross-site cookies to achieve this, so that other sites e.g. Twitter, know to withhold the prompt from you.

Test: If you visit both myaccount.google.com and twitter.com and set enhanced tracking protection to "OFF" for both, then the prompts disappear as expected.

I'd rather not switch these off, but it does seem to indicate a use case for whitelisting certain cross-site cookies functions.

Follow-up: The default Enhanced Tracking Protection settings are very aggressive.

I got back to my expected function with:

Settings / Privacy & Security >> Choose Custom. Change the Cookies pull down to be blocking "Cross-Site tracking cookies" instead of "Cross-Site tracking cookies, and isolate other cross-site cookies"

This makes the google preference work again. So clearly in order for my google preference to work for sites I am not registered with, it is a legitimate use of a cross-site google cookie to facilitate that.

I wish that I could click on the actual cookie and choose to authorise it specifically. But, this is a fair workaround, for me anyway.
