Cannot Load the list of files in Google Drive from

See original GitHub issue


I was able to use org-web from with Google Drive on Firefox several weeks ago. However, when I tried to sign in today, I found that after I signed in to my Google account, the application cannot load the file list and it went back to the first page (

I checked the HTTP requests. The status codes for the two HTTP request to Google Drive API are 403 with the following payload:

 "error": {
  "errors": [
    "domain": "usageLimits",
    "reason": "dailyLimitExceededUnreg",
    "message": "Daily Limit for Unauthenticated Use Exceeded. Continued use requires signup.",
    "extendedHelp": ""
  "code": 403,
  "message": "Daily Limit for Unauthenticated Use Exceeded. Continued use requires signup."

I am using Firefox 69.0 on Mac OS X 10.14, and I tried to sign in again after clearing the cache, but the problem still happened. Is there something I could do on my local machine to fix this problem?

Thanks in advance.

hey @sai-prasanna - yeah, when I reached out about that limit I don’t think I actually got a response. I’ll follow up on that and see what I can do!

Since Dropbox works fine still (org-web is already a “production” app on Dropbox), another simple solution is to install Dropbox and use it exclusively to sync your org files (via a symlink).

Sounds great! I can contribute or debug if you can think of a way. It just seemed to me like it mostly has to do with the connected Google API account.
