Gone are the days when photos were taken to a photo centre once every few months, printed and put into family albums, and only shown to guests occasionally. We live in an era where smartphone manufacturers are on the race to keep improving the cameras on their smartphones, but many people are guilty of taking tons of photos and printing none. These photos are only ever really shared in social media platforms – if that.
Google Picture Storage
Google has developed a solution for backing up photos on Google Drive. This is a very useful tool in case your phone is faulty or misplaced. If this happens, you will be able to recover all your photos intact from the Drive. Also, Google has automated the storage mechanism, and notifications will be sent to you once the backup is complete.
However, if you are using Mozilla Firefox instead, you can still have access to your photos and maintain the privacy that comes with it. Below are a few ways to gain access to your google photos while using the Mozilla Firefox browser:
How to Access Photos with Mozilla Firefox
If your photos are not showing when you’re using Mozilla Firefox, it could be due to Cookies and Cache. This is the major root cause for photos failing to display in Google Drive when using the Firefox browser.
The quickest fix is to clear the Cookies by clicking on the Settings Icon in the top right of your Mozilla Firefox browser. There, you’ll see three horizontal lines, from there you will find the Main Menu tab. Click on the Library Icon, a pop-up list will appear. In the list, you will see the History Option. Click on this tab, then click Clear.

Another solution is to start the Firefox browser in Safe Mode. This will close all the active hardware and reset your browser to the Default Settings mode.
