Can't read email in Firefox

About 3 weeks ago I became unable to sign into my Virgin email box using Firefox. When I try to do so all I get is either a blank screen or a Forbidden message. If I do exactly the same thing in Chrome I can open my emails without problems. I want to get this fixed please. How?
I have a blueyonder email address.

Re: Can't read email in Firefox

Delete the Firefox browser cache and any cookies referring to blueyonder and virginmedia.

If you need instructions use your preferred search engine.

Re: Can't read email in Firefox

Firefox and VM webmail do interact oddly at times...

I find that if I open the webmail login page in the first tab, it works fine and fast with no blank screen, and the mail appears promptly.

However, if I open the webmail login page in the second/third/etc tab, it'll probably need a Ctrt+F5 refresh to get it loaded properly, and after login it'll need another refresh or two to make the mail page load fully.

I see that behaviour consistently across all Windows operating systems at my disposal. I reported a similar issue on this forum quite some time ago and it didn't generate much interest.

I haven't yet been able to suss if it's a FF or a VM problem. Maybe it's both? It sure isn't neither!

I hope you get your problem sorted soon.

Re: Can't read email in Firefox

Just been in contact with VM and the best they could come up with?,Clear the cashe and if that does not work, delete and then re-install FF. Gee guy`s, wish I`d thought of that!

So still no emails through FF but ok through IE, on the same machine, and my ipad.

Any other ideas on this would be a help. Thanks
