Question.

When you say you can get your mail on your pc using firefox. Firefox is a browser. Did you mean t hunderbird.

Or do you mean firefox. If you mean firefox. Then we should be able to use firefox to access your account settings page and then review and make the needed changes.

So can you clarify what you mean specifically when you say you "get mail on your pc using firefox"

Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 2 years ago

Ok, what happens if you try to go to this page, using firefox ..

https://accounts.google.com/SmsAuthConfig

And sign in using your normal google / gmail password. Not any of your old Auth codes..

actually yes i've been on these pages before and you end up at feed back as the only option and of course google never responds I've been at this on and off for a month
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
in this case they tell you to login and change the account to fix the problem????? but I can't login
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
oh and it tells me to use the google authenticator app which i use and get told they are invalid codes when I enter them
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 2 years ago

When you were on the page I mentioned. Then you clicked sign in and security.

Did it ask you for your account password *****?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
you end up with google recognizing the account and password ***** unable to take me any further than a feed back page.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Dustin this seems an endless loop.. .and you're just as stumped as I am... thanks for the support but I see no alternatives
Email technician: Dustin, Email Specialist replied 2 years ago

Not quite stumped.. Just trying to work through the google 2 step maze.

If you would prefer, I can connect to your computer from here. And then try to go through the needed steps for you, on screen.
