For a few weeks now when trying to insert any picture or video into a Blogger article I get the above annoying prompt.

[The temporary solution was to use Firefox to create and edit Blog articles.]

But when you sign in, it does not lead anywhere ....

After a lot of research, here is the 'in retrospect' obvious answer.  It is to allow 3rd party cookies from any google.com domain.

In Chrome you would do this:

Google Chrome
Show Advanced Settings
Content Settings

Add the exception for anything.google.com

That is it.

Now you can again Insert Pictures and Movies without that ridiculous error!
