Firefox is increasing its game presence after they added the ability to actively block third-party cookies by default for its browser.
It's not testing a VPN for it now, as well.
The test is open to the public, I encourage everyone who uses Firefox even on a smaller scale than other browsers, add this extension and give it a good thorough test.

    Not an auspicious start: Got a 500 error :)

    And for some reason the Beta is only open to US users

    @Gidster :

    I'd imagine that it's a decision made to not only limited the number of users, the legality issues that might need to be resolved in other jurisdictions, but also potentially the agreement they have with Cloudflare.

    That and as every decent 'murican knows deep down to their soul, the world is 'MURICA!  >:) /s

    So I'm not the only one that's not able to sign in, good to know.  I thought that it was just me, even on my home computer I had the issue as well.
    Oh @Pooh how right you are!

    UPDATE:  I can now log into the VPN, try it on yours and see if you still receive the 500 error.

    Yup, it's now working (until it's not).
