Windows 7: GMAIL - Contacts not reachable

Let me ask you this. When you uninstalled and reinstalled FF, did you have to reinstall your extensions and bookmarks and so on or where they already there?

Give a shot. Rename the profile folder. Start up FF and see what happens. Worse that can happen is that you have same problem and the only thing you lost was a bit of time. You can trash the new profile folder and rename yours back to normal.

I might be new to the forums here but I've been using this method since FF v1.x.

Just checked...all my accounts are accessible. Then again I never really saw them being disconnected.

As for new FF profiles: Is there any particular reason, why you are renaming the folder instead of starting the profile manager ( Firefox -P) and create a new profile as it was intended ??

After using RevoUninstaller to uninstall and then installing problem is gone. My aggravation is that I had to resort to the full uninstall to correct the problem as all other efforts failed.

It's just faster and easier for me (and to me). Plus it guarantees a clean profile folder.

Try the firefox -p option. You will be pleasantly surprised and will probably never use any other method.
