Whatever E-Mail I use with Firefox I am unable to attach any files to a message as it will not open a window to show me my folders where I can chose a file.

I have tried allowing the website and clicking on the padlock and checking the allow on pop ups etc but I just can't get Firefox to attach ANY file to an e-mail. When I want to send a file I have to log out and open up Google Chrome and log in again.

It must be something within the Firefox set up as Google Mail works fine. Everytime I want to send a file I have to log out and log back in using Chrome which is a pain. Its probably something simple but I don't know what unfortunately lol

You can try these steps in case of issues with web pages:

You can reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • Hold down the Shift key 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 cookies only from websites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • new fx menu > Options/Preferences> Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • new fx menu > Options/Preferences > Privacy > "Use custom settings for history" > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

No that doesn't help either sorry. I have also tried adding the e-mail address within the pop up blocker exceptions too but that doesn't work.

Another linked problem is if I go into certain sites and they open another window with something to print Firefox won't open the other window and it also won't open the print option box either to print things.

Do you have an antivirus or ad blocker that may be preventing Firefox from uploading?

It may be helpful to open up the Web Console to see where along the time line the action is stopped when you try to upload. Post a screenshot of the web console when you try this.
