Mozilla has trougle with google claiming google is redirecting in circles

When I use googleig Mozilla claims the webpage is redirecting in circles. I had to reinstall Mozilla from scratch due to add-ons constantly causing problems. Since then Mozilla has not worked. This redirecting problem is rampant throughout each session on many webpages.

I cannot access any of the google services - gmail, etc. I have tried both solutions as directed. My Tools>options>privacy does not have a Cookies option like indicated. It does allow me to see the cookies. I deleted the google cookie to no avail.

Still no luck. The only thing left as I see it, is a total unistall and reinstall, but I just did that.
