Why am I constantly asked to sign up to Google before I can search, I do not get this when I search in another browser

more options

I can not get a google search in Mozilla without constantly being asked to sign up to their terms first - I have to read them in case they have changed, it takes hours of wasted time, how can I get past this? I rarely have to sign up to get Google when I search with Internet Explorer. Screen immage attached, hope this helps Thanks for initial response not sure if I have put this in the correct place?

Firefox will never require you to sign up for anything. The browser should remain fully functional without any form of registration.

This sounds like a setting on the Google website. Unfortunately, this is not controlled by Mozilla.

I think I know which popup you are referring to, but in order to better assist you with your issue please provide us with a screenshot. If you need help to create a screenshot, please see How do I create a screenshot of my problem?

Once you've done this, attach the saved screenshot file to your forum post by clicking the Browse... button below the Post your reply box. This will help us to visualize the problem.

Thank you!

Hello Wesley, Thanks for your reply, I am a little confused as to how I reply to your response. Have attached a screenshot to my post but no reply - was I in the wrong place? I don't understand a lot of computer jargon I am afraid. Hope you can help Rambling

Sorry for the delay in my response. Thanks for uploading a screenshot.

The United Kingdom version of Google is required to advise their users of the data protection laws. They are required to do so in order to comply with UK law. Once you navigate through the popup and click the agree button, you should not be prompted about this issue again. This should not require you to sign in or create a Google account.

If the popup displays again, this is probably because your browser cookies for Google have been deleted or your Firefox is not configured to save browser cookies. Cookies are data saved to your computer that will save website settings and things like that.
