[Unrelated] Error Drive.google.com

Post by mrtun20 » Tue Oct 13, 2015 8:30 am

When I'm going to drive.google.com, it said that I need to update Firefox to use and some other website said that too. Having any solutions?

I'm using Firefox 41.0.1, Noscript 2.6.9.38, Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, google.com in whitelist.

Thanks.

You're using FF 22, or so it says.
Time for an update.
(Backup first.)
If you're not using FF 22, you've got something that has modified your UA & Google thinks your are using FF 22.

Disable NoScript, restart FF, & verify that NoScript is not the issue.

NoScript does not alter the user-agent string, and that's not a "normal" UA even for Firefox 22. Please go to about:config and check the value of general.useragent.override , make sure that pref is either not there (its default is to have no value) or set to something like

Code: Select all

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0


Also does disabling all extensions other than NoScript get it working? (Tools > Add-ons Manager)
If so, try adding back your extensions, one at a time, until you find the one that causes the issue. Then remove all the others, pairing only the suspected one with NoScript, to confirm that the remaining one is the issue.

Let us know, thanks.

@OP - modify screenshot suggestion:
You might consider cropping out everything above the canvas (the bookmark bar, the url bar, and the tab bar) because it shows your email on the tab and that could result in you getting a lot of spam if someone grabs it. I'd suggest just editing the image source.

Mangled the img tag in the mean time. Also let's move this to Web Tech.

np. Can you please post more details of the solution for others to reference?

(and looking again, I didn't word my statement about general.useragent.override well at all - there is a huge difference between an empty, user set general.useragent.override vs. default general.useragent.override. fixed above)
