Can you please try the .xpi from this bug:
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/2377#comment:3 and let
me know if it behaves ok for Google logins now? It may need a few
tries, iirc, this bug is random.

Be sure to go back in to about:config and reset
extensions.torbutton.xfer_google_cookies back to *true* before running
your tests.
