Google calendar stopped loading on Firefox 16 & 17. Was working before. Works in other browsers

All of a sudden, when I try to load Google Calendar it hangs on "Loading...". I've been using it for many months with no problem. It works fine in other browsers. I can access other Google services like gmail. I tried deleting cookies but that didn't work. I upgraded from 16 to 17 with no change.

Re: Google calendar stopped loading on Firefox 16 & 17. Was working before. Works in other browsers

When I tried to load LinkedIn on Firefox I got a basic DOS like version. That's when it occurred to me that my problems with Google calendar started after I clicked on "use basic version" when it was taking a long time to load up (probably due to ISP) and that I was able to load a basic version of calendar.

So I reset Firefox and that solved the problems.

Reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • Press and hold Shift and left-click the Reload button.
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Command + Shift + R" (MAC)

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.

Tried the clearing of cache and cookies, didn't work. Went into AVS Registry Cleaner, ran it then into its Settings and ticked Temporary Internet Files - Clear Cache & Cookies. Restarted laptop= Google Calendar loaded no probs. Thnx 2 all!
