Can't access my Google Mail---? I have Firefox---any ideas what's going on?

Asked by DarlingRhadamanthus (11203 points ) April 20th, 2010

I was able to get into my Google account as usual…and midway through checking my email, I was bumped off and the following message appeared:

“Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

* This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept
cookies.”

I have never had this message appear before——and I did not change settings at all (from what I’ve always used). Does anyone know what I can do to fix this problem? I use Firefox.

Thanks in advance!

i’d try refreshing purging all cookies and clearing your cache and then refreshing your computer. it should work after that.

Just reboot your system and log on again. I have had Firefox do this if I have not rebooted for a few days.

Firefox is the problem. its firewalls are denying you access to Google for a reason. i had Firefox and had the same problem. i deleted Firefox for a minute, in order to make this discovery.

Who knows

I have followed all the different advice….and I am still getting that message. Argh.

I thought it was maybe my computer. Well, I’m borrowing someone else’s until I get mine out of the shop and guess what? Firefox…same thing!

I have used Firefox for awhile——why is it happening only in the last few weeks?

Any ideas on what to do…? I don’t want to use a Windows browser.
