Mailbox unavailable via Firefox

I'm suddenly unable to access my mailbox via Firefox (PC), my default browser. I get error messages such as "Connection error, this service is not available right now. Retry", or "Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit." Anybody know what might be causing this?  It works OK on my phone and using Edge.

Re: Mailbox unavailable via Firefox

Does the issue occur in Private browsing mode; press Ctrl + Shift + P? If not then:

  • close the Private browsing window
  • select ☰ > Preferences > Privacy and Security > Manage Data (locate under Manage Data Security)
  • in the Search field enter the text virginmedia
  • select Remove All Shown, then Save Changes and Remove to confirm
  • does the issue still occur?
