can not respond to emails

Posted

i can not respond to emails. I click on reply and it displays my email address, not the person that sent me the message. My cursor does not work either when I click on reply. It freezes up. However, when I go to my Yahoo email to respond to the message it works just fine. I have been using Firefox for some time now and this is the first time I have had an issue.

Firefox doesn't do email, it's strictly a web browser.

If you are using Firefox to access your mail, you are using "web-mail". You need to seek support from your service provider or a forum for that service.

If your problem is with Mozilla Thunderbird, see this forum for support. https://support.mozillamessaging.com/.../home

Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

Please Update to the latest Firefox 18.0.x version.

The Firefox Firefox 14.0.1 version that you currently run is no longer supported with security updates
