When using Mozilla Firefox for Gmail (and Startmail), when clicking on file icon to ADD a file to the email, it brings up file window, but then freezes, crashes. Ironically enough it works with yahoo.

It used to work fine if I just dragged the file into the email, but now that isn't working either. Never fully loads the file. So then the spinning wheel of death comes, then I have to quit firefox and then crash report comes every time and asks for me to restore the tabs if i want. It's a major pain.

I tried with IE and it works just fine, so it's definitely Firefox.

I have the latest version of Firefox for MAC

Software OS X 10.9.5 (13F1603) Processor 1.3 GHz Intel Core i5 Memory 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Intel HD Graphics 5000 1536 MB

Hi Forum.

I have a problem with a windows XP PC with outlook 2003 installed.

the firefox email link not working. I checked mailto: only showing yahoo and gmail.

We want to use outlook 2003 to send. If I use IE 8, email link will work.

I manually put the outlook.exe path in Use Other, still not working. It probably due to that I could not enter parameters with the outlook.exe

Please help.

Thanks a lot,

Michael

There used to be a Firefox helper program called "mailto webmail" that did this, but it does not work with Firefox Quantum. Then, for a while, a similar feature was built into Firefox, allowing the easy selection of "AOL Mail" or "AIM" as one of the choices to get to this result. Now, the only webmail link choices that I see listed in Firefox are to Gmail and Yahoo. There is a box to type in others, but I have no idea what to specify to get the AOL "compose/send email page" to be used by Firefox (current version) instead of Gmail or Yahoo. Also, the AOL page that opens should be the "Compose/Send email" page and not the email inbox page! Thank you.

Within the last 1-2 weeks some fonts in emails have been displaying pixelated, these are websites I use every day and they were perfect resolution before.

I have not changed any settings in firefox. I have cleared cache and done fresh reinstall of firefox and the issue persists. I have also been through trouble shooting with individual website supports and they cannot resolve the problem. The issue seems to be with firefox as these display ok on Chrome. I have made sure my zoom is 100% and to remove formatting from the emails.

I am not sure what else to try or what settings to check as I haven't personally changed settings myself. Maybe something new in recent updates?

Thanks

My OS is Win7 ultimate 64-bit. I have both Mozilla 40.0.3 and Thunderbird 38.2.0 as default browser and mail client, resp., and set Thunderbird to handle all protocols it can manage through windows control panel. Nonetheless, when I click in Firefox onto a mailto: link nothing happens. Any idea of what could be wrong? Thanks Dario

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.

After the last Firefox update I now have the login page for my Gmail account pop up twice. I login on the first page and instead of going to my Gmail it goes back to the Gmail login page. It never used to do that so why all of the sudden does it do that now? It's extremely annoying! This only happens on my desktop PC. It's fine on my iPad and iPhone. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks.

After months, maybe even years of seeing banners on Firefox saying things like PROTECT NET NEUTRALITY, Firefox now seems to be exploiting the end of Net Neutrality by throttling Yahoo. The last Firefox update did not even include Yahoo and a possible browser. I had to go through a bunch of mumbo jumbo I found on another website to find out how to add Yahoo as a browser in Firefox. Here's the news: I have had Yahoo Mail for 15 years. Now I can't access it. I can't even confirm my registration to this forum BECAUSE I CAN'T ACCESS MY EMAIL ACCOUNT. Naturally, this pisses me off. Fix it.

Hi, have used Firefox for years, but on windows 10 now: Cannot attach files from my PC to Hotmail enails because the explore file windows does not open when clicking attach clip. Cannot save an internet page because after clicking save page from Fierrefox menu dropdown selection, nothing happens. Cannot print to pdf information from pages (as bank statements with print buttons) because of "cannot open file. Access denied" error. Same problem if what to print is just any internet page. NO problem downloading files of any type. NO problem doing any of this with Google Chrome. Have tried many solutions including refreshing Firefox. Antivirus and Firewall is standard Microsoft Windows 10 Defender
