I cannot send my emails nor save to draft on Outlook. I always could before but lately I cannot. I've gone the Outlook support route and they can't do any more

The last couple of months I have not been able to use my Outlook and send emails or save drafts. I have gone to outlook support but since it still works with Chrome and IE they say its firefox's issue and have no other help for me. I've cleared cache and history. extensions etc.. So I am coming to you now. I do have a VPN but outlook still won't work with it not on. So I am at a loss as to what to do. I don't like chrome nor IE and I've always had firefox and I want to continue that. I was still able to send emails when I first got the VPN so Im not sure what it is except very, very annoying. The same is for my laptop and that does not have the VPN.

Im sure this is a Firefox problem as in Safari of Google Chrome the 'preview' , if clicked, opens fine.

I have recently begun getting pop-up messages in the lower right of my screen stating: "Current operation did not succeed..." It has happened when opening my mailboxes, my delete and my junk email. And sometimes concurrently all of my aliases and their folders will disappear leaving only my primary address. It will all mysteriously reappear but I don't know if it's something I have done to try to get it back or if it is just random.

Things were going fine for awhile. It seemed to have nothing to do with anything I did. Last night Thunderbird started demanding my password again and has rejected it. I didn't realize there was a syncing process. Now I can't get my mail on my iPad either. Tried to get a reset but can't get mail on either device. I have Thunderbird 38.3.0. Tried to start the syncing process. Password denied but when I asked for a reset I'm told the account already exists. Can't get email. Can't reset. Account exists but doesn't work. Very frustrated.

Whenever I click on an e-mail address inside Firefox, it always defaults to the generic mail client. I want it to default to Outlook. I have found the 'mailto' option in Options/Applications. When I select "Browse" and navigate to the directory containing outlook.exe, though, it does not see that executable and, so far as I can tell, does not allow me to paste that string into the window.

Recurring events with Recurrence pattern in place are not being received in Outlook 2016 as a correct invite

When I try to create Lightning event that contains a custom Recurrence pattern (for example, every last Wednesday for each month), and send that as an invite to Outlook 2016 users, they don't get the proper .ics invite. The received mail is basically a text representation of that invite with visible headers and no option to click Accept od Deny.

If they forward that email back to me, Thunderbird reads it just fine. And if I try to send basic event invite without custom date range, Outlook reads it with no problem. Also, if I send custom recurrence pattern to Google Calendar, it reads it just fine.

Does anybody have an idea how to solve this? I know it's Outlook problem with reading .ics files but knowing their community I'd rather try here first.

Thanks in advance

About 3 weeks ago, I started having issues with accessing folders in Outlook live. I can get to my Inbox folder, but when I click on sub-folders, it just keeps loading. On occasion, I am able to get in to one or more sub-folders randomly. I uninstalled/reinstalled Firefox, cleared cookies and cache, gone through folders and deleted as much as I could (on another browser, that will let me access those folders). Since I can access these folders via another browser, it appears to be a Firefox issue. Any help is appreciated.

Hello,

I've been using FF and Outlook.com email service for many years without any problems. However something strange happened recently - after some update, I guess.

It is not possible to write one polish special character during composing an email - letter ż . To input such character polish users have keyboard settings which allow to press 'ALT + z'. And since a few weeks ALT+z acts like CTRL+z , which results deleting last letter (undo last action), instead of typing letter ż.

Some investigations: - This problem occurs only in an email body textbox. In a subject field it is ok. - Tried to disable all add-ons - does not help. - Tested in other browsers - the problem does not exist in Chrome or IE.

Is this some Firefox bug? If there are some polish users of FF and Microsoft's email service - could you please check if you face the same problem?

Thanks in advance for help.

Every time I try to print an email, the font size is super huge. It wastes a lot of paper, ink, and is not usable for what I need it for. Printing from Word is normal. I've tried adjusting the settings on the print screen without any luck. It works perfectly fine on Explorer (so we know it's not our printer), but we don't really like using Explorer. I think it started happening after an update. How can I fix this email printing problem?

This has been a problem for at least the last five versions of Firefox including the current one rendering the browser useless to me. Almost as soon as email is deleted from the in-box of Outlook.com it reappears--the whack-a-mole strategy is only intermittently effective. No other browser--Chrome,Edge, Credge, Opera--has this bug. Since it is such a consistent problem for me, deleting and reinstalling Firefox changed nada, I assume others have had to abandon Firefox for the same reason.
