    I can't set a profile pic for my new account.

    Older accounts I already have are fine. For example:

    I ran a Firefox portable within Sandboxie which destroy cookies or cache every time it gets closed. Also I tried from a vm with a new Chrome installation. Also I tried from another computer.

    Clear cache and site cookies in Chrome local account folder.

    Nope. No need for that as I ran a Firefox portable within Sandboxie which destroy cookies or cache every time it gets closed.
    Also I tried from a vm with a new Chrome installation. Also I tried from another computer.

    reset chrome, sign out, (delete %localappdata%\Google\Chrome then) reinstall, sign in
    might work.

    I do not understand exactly what you are recommending. I just tested it, but with Chrome only. I'll try Firefox right now.
    Some minutes later
    Now also tried with Firefox 58, everything works. I tried to exchange accounts, update photos, i.e. replace them - still works.

    To open a brand new google account and set a new custom or downloaded profile pic. Then see whether it worked or not. Doesn't matter which browser you utilize (well, for the time being).

    I already have many of them and I tried different accounts, also such what was just few days ago opened and there was no profile pictures still. I uploaded one and it worked. Then changed, again worked. So I think, it isn't the Google problem, it isn't also Chrome and Firefox problem. The problem is something else.

    Thanks anyway. Well perhaps someone else could help by creating a new google account for testing.

    Running a clean brand new Firefox sandboxed session, no cookies no any other crap.
