Thx. It is a duplicate. I can’t find a way to close this report tough.

Yep, it’s really annoying.
However, the reproducibility is not 100%. After a few tries, it worked for me and I’m now logged in for the foreseeable future.
But I can’t find a reliable way to bypass this f*** warning :confused:

THX. I tried once more today and now I’m logged in. At least for now.

To bypass Google’s check, open about:config in the default browser and search for “agent”. Change Sailfish 3 with Android 8 in the user agent string. This lasts until restarting the browser.

Weird, even this is set in the prefs.js file when modifying it via about:config, it gets overriden with the default on restarting the browser. Even killing all affected processes does not help.

wiered, a few weeks ago it worked fine for me, read this thread, tried it, failed. however, i do not use Gmail etc that often, on this page my keyboard hides what i m writing, thats also pretty annoying. but i can confirm your problem.
