Weirdly enough, logging in from the “Accounts” app (e.g. because the “your account needs to be updated” notification) does not show the problem.

Can you please explain a “Accounts” app workaround?

It’s not a workaround, it’s just that the page launched to validate a Google account from the Accounts Settings is not affected by that Google security warnimg.

Maybe using another User Agent in the settings can work around that, but I’m guessing the Google Browser detection is smarter than that.

Plus they’re known to be Firefox saboteurs.

I too have the same problem. I have given up using google
