Why am I suddenly getting all of these google account log in pop up tab?

With the new FF update every time I open FF or have an approved pop up I keep getting a new pop up tab for google account log-in. I've tried blocking the site and nothing seems to stop the annoying action.


This is the web address that keeps coming up in a new tab: https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLogin?service=lso&passive=1209600&continue=https://accounts.googl...Smiley SurprisedSmiley Surprised

Clear the cache and cookies from websites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Firefox > Preferences > Privacy > "Use custom settings for history" > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

You can check the home page setting:

  • Tools > Options > General > Startup: Home page

Firefox supports multiple home pages separated by '|' (pipe) symbols.

The above did not help. BUT I did find that when I went to about:support and hit the Reset Firefox that got ride of whatever the heck was causing that annoying double window.
