Can't disable pop-up sign-in with google prompt at Twitter, via Firefox
disable pop=up sign-in with google prompt LAPTOP WINDOWS 11 FIREFOX 105.0.3 64-BIT 1. 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.
I USE DEV TOOLS from FIREFOX TOOLS TO FIGURE OUT IF IT'S FIREFOX OR GOOGLE CAUSING ISSUE. HERE IS ONE OF 50 LINES RELATING TO GOOGLE/TWITTER/FIREFOX CONVERGENCE
(ALSO, I USE UBLOCK & LASTPASS)
LINE FROM DEVELOPER CONSOLE WHEN I OPEN TAB TO TWITTER LOG-ON PAGE:
20:36:03.881 Google Analytics and Tag Manager is being shimmed by Firefox. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1713687 for details. sandbox eval code:1:9
I DON'T WANT TO CLOSE THIS POP-UP BUTTON EVERYTIME I GO TO LOG IN AT TWITTER, IT'S NEW. I HATE IT. HAVE DELETED TONS OF UNKNOWN FILES IN MY USER FOLDERS TODAY, NOTHING HELPED (LOCAL/GOOG FOLDER & TEMP FOLDERS). MAYBE I NEED TO RESET SOMETHING IN CONFIG OR A REGEDIT SETTING FOR FIREFOX. I'LL DO ANYTHING. Thanks!

Same here. I only use Youtube but I sign out when I'm finished and I don't go on Youtube every time I open my browser. I have Firefox set to private browsing. Cookies and history are deleted when I exit Firefox. My Firefox is up to date. Suddenly this has been happening on several sites I use. I have Ad-blocker Ultimate. I tried the point and click to block google, but then no online games like solitaire and mahjong will work. I right click the google sign in and remove it's permissions and block them. I have also signed into google and turned off the same setting. I've found things to type into the block list on Ad-blocker Ultimate. But that hasn't worked either. I found google files on my PC, I've deleted what I can. Please help.
UPDATE. I was forced to use Microsoft Edge today. That Google sign in popup didn't appear once. The issue is in Firefox. So when is Mozilla support going to help us with this? It's been 10 days and nothing.
If you use a content blocker such as uBlock Origin, there are options you can enable which evidently block the pop up. In uBO, on the Filter Lists tab, enable these Annoyances: AdGuard Annoyances and uBlock Filters - Annoyances. (FWIW, I have enabled those and don't see the pop up.)
I don't use Google search or email... but still get this annoying pop up box! This is very recent. And the only common denominator across my devices is Firefox. Please Firefox, get your act together and fix this.
Does it help to delete any third party Google cookies on sites where you have this problem? Open the Storage Manager by pressing Shift+F9. Firefox should list the cookies set by the page under its own address (for example, under Twitter). If you see there also are Google (especially Google account cookies), you can right-delete those extra cookies. The idea behind cleaning this up is that Google won't have a signal that you signed in with a Google account before after those cookies are gone. Any improvement?
I have the same problem on my laptop and there is now, nor has there ever been any google programs or browsers installed on here and I do not use social media, so it is all the browser allowing google to do it. If it isnt remedied soon I will be switching to a different browser
