When I visit Google web messages (messages.google.com/web) in Firefox, the QR code does not load (see image below).

I have tried the following:

  • opening Firefox in safe-mode
  • disabling AdBlocker and Add-ons
  • adjusting cookie, history, etc. settings
  • modifying the following about: config settings
    • privacy.resistFingerprinting = false
    • network.http.spdy.websockets=false

Interestingly, the QR code loads in Firefox for WhatsApp but not Android messages.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
