FF not compatible with gmail?

Tried today to access my gmail with FF portable, 50.1.0, it tells me it is not compatible browser

Tried the same with installed FF, same problem

Then came here and tried post here. Some crazy capcha prevents this completely. One should select some pictures there. However what ever I do select, the captch seems to be invalid result.

Can we have some normal life again pls?

This is posted from opera, as no posting seems to be allowed from FF any more here?

XP here

itworks for me too on w10
however not on XP.
Is this some known issue? I have tried to disable all extensions and also all plugins. No cure.
Neither the installed nor the portable version does work properly.

I can answer within a thread, but can not post new thread. Some strange capcha asking me to select some pictures does not work, regardless what I select it remains invalid.

Not only gmail reports the browser is not compatibel, just seen now the german mail service GMX tells me also the browser is outdated.
Fresh downloaded copy of FF portable installed on separate partition of my XP desktop machine.

Antivirus

If the local version of Firefox doesn't work, it's not an issue with the portable version. Any chance you have an antivirus or software firewall that is interfering?

I am able to login to Gmail via a fresh copy of Firefox in my clean Windows XP x86 virtual machine.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
