after firefox 54.0 update I can't send email with earthlink webmail

Posted

After the firefox 54.0 update I can no longer send email via earthlink webmail. I can receive, open, read, but not send or forward. THis doesn't happen with IE or Chrome. This happens on three different computers, one with windows 7, the others with windows 10. I'd like to stay with firefox but I can't unless I can send email from earthlink webmail.

Do you see any error messages in the Web Console that look related to this issue?

If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block (wanted) content (e.g. Adblock Plus, NoScript, Flash Block, Ghostery) then always make sure such extensions do not block (wanted) content.

  • make sure that your extensions and filters are updated to the latest version

we either need earthlink directly or an affected customer of theirs to work with us to get this problem fixed, since from the outside it is impossible to say what's causing this...

Thanks, hgunited. If the link has the downgrade back to 53.03, I'll be good, because that was working.

Went to Web Console after trying to send an email; All I had was my own email address, the title "Test", and the body only had "Test." Here are what the different notes stated. An unbalanced tree was written using document.write() causing data from the network to be reparsed.

I'd be happy to work with you all to fix this. How do I contact you, or vice versa?

However, I'm not a coder and don't have any special software, but I can follow directions. Also, I'm on a Mac with latest OS.

thanks jwinogradoff. could you download an run the mozregression tool like it's explained in the video at https://blog.nightly.mozilla.org/2017/06/07/using-mozregression-on-windows/

what it can do is download various builds from the firefox 54 development cycle and asks you if it contains the problem or not - you feedback that information to the tool after you test it in each build and it will narrow down to the exact change in the code that introduced this bug (this is the so-called pushlog). if can come up with the exact pushlog for this regression and share this with us it would be of great help in getting this on a trajectory for a fix.

Will do in a bit, Phillipp. I need to get some work down, so just downgraded to 53.03, which works just fine.

Will get to your request in a few hours. Sorry for the delay.

Okay. Felt badly about waiting so downloaded 54.0 again and took the first step in Terminal, sudo apt install python-pip virtualenvwrapper

but it asked me for a password, and I have no idea what it would be.

the password it's asking for would be the admin password of your machine in order to install the tool - https://support.apple.com/HT202035

Ahh. Was just coming back to run things. Glad you now have the info you need. I'm going to revert back to 53.03 again until I read that the bug's fixed and 54 is ready to go.

Thanks for the time and responses!

Looks that this is related to this patch (URL with value http://) that landed in Firefox 54: https://www.fxsitecompat.com/en-CA/docs/2017/urls-with-no-host-name-are-now-treated-as-invalid/

Perhaps if someone can isolate a problem element in the page a bookmarklet could repair the issue as a temporary workaround.
