Firefox won't open my gmail accounts anymore. Why is this?

Q: Firefox won't open my gmail accounts anymore. Why is this?

Firefox just up and quit being able to access my gmail accounts. I can get to the login page, but when I go to login the page just hangs with "loading" appearing in the upper right corner. I can still get into it via IE, but who wants to use IE if you don't have to? Anyone know what's causing this? I didn't change a thing on my pc and now it won't work.

Preferred Solution: Firefox won't open my gmail accounts anymore. Why is this?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

All of a sudden itunes will not open anymore, can't browse with firefox, even after deleting both and redownloading. This Happened about the same time bellsouth made us start logging in to emails at yahoo. An error come up with itunes about a folder not found, firefox does nothing. The computer tech at work said I probably had a root problem and directed me here. Last night I tried to navigate the web site and use combo fix, which is what he instructed me to do, but I was multi tasking and in a hurry and I'm not sure if I did it right, well I'm sure I didn't. And root repeal won't do anything, says a drive not found. So should I delete root repeal and dds from computer and start over? We were using malwarebytes.com, I also tried to run update on that lastnight and program won't update. It looks like it's going to, then it says problem and reverses update. Also, several times when on internet using explorer a message comes up that yahoo toolbar wants to open program out side of protected mode, I always say no, but this message comes up atleast 4-5 times per session. Any help would be appreciated! Oh, and I'm a computer dummy.

"Firefox doesn't know how to open this address because the protocall (call to) isn't associated with any program"
Specifically when composing emails in gmail in the new compose window, Firefox (multiple tab sessions sometimes) suddenly completely crashes closing exiting all tabs but keeping one new browser window open that has a gray screen and the above error message in the middle.  I recently started using a signature which just has my name and phone number below it.  I noticed when I get to the bottom of an email toward the signature below the 3 little dots, this is when the crash tends to happen, although at other times I'm a couple lines above and it still occurs.
Could this be a javascript error maybe? 
It's starting to affect my work, because I send a lot of emails.  Any help is graciously appreciated.

I know it sounds simple, but it's confusing the heck out of me, and I've checked a few simple "how-to's" that didn't work. Here's the problem: I have several gmail accounts I've created over the years......one I use daily, another once in awhile, another I wish to make my primary account, and some others. Here's what I need to do: 1) eliminate ALL but the 2 accounts I'm going to be using, and 2) easily switch between the two. I realize that #2 is a totally separate issue; let's just try to get the first one done for now.

What happens is, first I sign out of the regular account, but cannot get into any others. The one I previously created that I want to use as my primary, when I try to sign in, it says "no account exists." But when I try to create a new account using that name, it says "that one's already taken." If I try to retrieve a password, and go through that whole laborious process, it says "nothing here." The process just keeps going back and forth.....

So......how can I go in and get rid of all but the two accounts?

I don't know if anyone is familiar with the Firefox Extension GSpace, but what it does is that it allows you to use your GMail account as a 2GB storage space, so you don't have to carry around a jump drive. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to link 2 or more accounts so you could get more storage space than 2 gigs. Or at least till GDrive is released anyway...

I am having some problems with the Gmail application and Notifier as of late. Basically the Gmail Desktop Notifier I have is unable to connect to my Gmail account.

A quick run down of what I know.

* No matter what web browser you tell Gmail to use as the default, it always goes through IE to access your Gmail account.

* The notifier doesn't actually use POP3 or IMAP to the best of my knowledge, meaning if something is messed up with IE/Gmail the application won't work correctly.

* I can access my Gmail account from any non-IE browser (but can't use the notifier).

*I can technically access my Gmail account from IE, but I have to clear my cache/cookies to do this and every time I reboot the problem returns and I can no longer access Gmail from IE.

* I have both Gmail and IE set up to use SSL2 encryption, makes no difference enabled or not.

* I have tried uninstalling the notifier, removing all traces of it from my system, clearing IE's cache/cookies, and reinstalling with no luck.

* I have reset IE7 to defaults and this made no difference.

* I have tried without a firewall/AV active

* Using a fully updated XP Pro SP3

* This is a new problem that has plagued only my last few reformats, even though I am using the same disk as I have for a while and have never had this problem previously.

* I am using an nLite disk, but it has worked fine for at least 10 reformats before I started having problems.

Can anyone tell me if I have to sign in to Gmail accounts regularly??

I have been having such problems with Bigfoot recently (no emails being received, at all!) that I have realised I'll probably have to use an alternative [free] service, in its place.

Hotmail is an option, but MSN state that the user has to sign in "at least once every 270 days"; which frankly I haven't got time to do! as I like to use a variety of different e.a.'s so will be setting up several different e.a.'s, no matter which email-address provider I opt for.

My gmail account got hacked. Offenders changed my pw, alternate email address, and deleted my contacts. They sent email out to all the contacts saying that I was stranded in the UK without money and asking for contacts to respond to arrange to send $2000.00. Offenders changed settings so that response email would be forwarded to their account. Friends who got these fraudulent emails called and alerted me and I contacted gmail and reset the alternate email address so they could send me a link to reset pw. Upon regaining access I discovered the extent of compromise.
I also rec'd email from facebook that my account with them has been breached. I still have not regained access to that.

A:gmail and facebook accounts hacked

Norton is mainly an antivirus product, maybe they include anti-spyware too now, not sure. There are many ways to steal access to your gmail. One of the ways is to install a keylogger on your pc, and steal username and passwords as you type them. But if you have accessed your gmail from another computer, like at university; public library, your friend's PC etc, then it may be that those computers are infected and not yours. Also, it may not be a technical attack. Simply being able to look over your shoulder as you enter the passwords will get you hacked just as easily. Then, there are whats called brute force attacks, where a program simply points to a login page, and tries each combination in sequence till it hits the right one. Gmail may not fall to brute force attacks, but if you use the same password on multiple sites, then there is a chance that they hacked that account first and tried to use the same password on gmail. Then there may have been phishing attempts made at your account and you mistakenly entered your password into a web site that only looks like Gmail. There should be more ways to steal your gmail, but I am not a hacker.

If you are running Trend Micro along with Norton, you might end up with them interferring with each other. You cannot run multiple real-time antivirus products together.

Hello, does anyone know the best way to accomplish having two gmail accounts open SIMULTANEOUSLY, whether in Chrome (preferred) using a workaround or extension, or in Firefox?  (There are plenty of options out there to handle password management to switch between accounts with a click or two, but if you want to be in two at the same time, the only things I've been able to find for Chrome at least is to open two different windows one in Incognito the other in regular mode.)  It would be MUCH easier to have both email accounts open in respective tabs within the same window.

I've been using Outlook 2003 to get my Gmail for the last two years. I've been using Gmail to gather all my email in one place (mainly for the excellent spam filtering), then I use a POP3/SMTP account in Outlook to retrieve everything from Gmail, and it worked great. When I installed Win7 64 last October it was easy to import everything from my XP installation of Outlook to my new one, and I continued getting Gmail in Outlook just fine -- until about a week ago (Feb 21). The problem started with Outlook only getting a few messages but leaving most behind. By the next day, however, Outlook had stopped getting anything from Gmail. (Or Gmail had stopped sending anything to Outlook, I don't know which.)

I tried various fixes, and finally deleted the account in Outlook and set up a new account for Gmail all over again. This finally worked and I was getting Gmail messages again! Then it stopped again. I can go to Gmail online and see all the new messages, but Outlook pretends that it has nothing left to get. No errors, it just says "Send/Receive Complete" after a few seconds. I have to delete that account and make it again if I want to download messages from Gmail now -- each day! There must be an easier way.

Considering that it has worked well for so long, I immediately wonder what has changed in the last week? Windows Update downloaded a new definition file for Defender... my anti-virus (Avast) gets daily updates... and that's about it. I have not... Read more

A:Cannot get Mail App to work with Gmail or Hotmail accounts

For your Hotmail account, change the setting for getting the emails to 'last 3 days' and see if it works. If it does, change it back to whatever interval selection you want.

Usually when Google or other account say those, it's also a syncing issue. Might want to try playing with those settings as well.

I have both outlook.com (same as Hotmail) and Google working in the new Windows 10 mail app and even on my Windows 10 phone preview build. So they can work if you find the problems with your settings.
