This error message comes up both using Firefox and Chrome when using G mail. Also if it works at all, switching from compose to draft just takes very long or keeps working. No problem with G mail using Internet Explorer or Safari. I have used Firefox for many years & want to go back when I can solve this Vexing problem.

Chosen solution

Try to boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) as a test to see if that helps in case your security software is interfering.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

Thank you for your help. I reset Firefox, re started and wanted to answer using G mail with Firefox, and the same error message comes up.. When it does the screan gets very lite with the error message on top.
