Outlook via web site
« on: August 09, 2019, 01:06:29 PM »
I only view my Outlook account through the website about twice a month. Today I get a blank white page in both Palemoon and FF ESR. I read a very old thread that opening a private browsing window might fix it. It did not. In Palemoon, I'm signed in so the bookmark takes me to my inbox. In FF, I got the signin page but as soon as I entered my username then password in another window, the inbox never showed and I got a blank white page.

I fired up Vivaldi and was finally able to get to my inbox.

Any idea what I need to do to get PM working?

Hmmm, it seems to be working fine in PM for me. Have you cleared your cookies and tried again?

I've see the same suggestion about clearing cookies and it also included clearing history.

I had no cookies protected for outlook/live but I removed the ones I did see. I also cleared history. That did nothing.

FF starts to load my inbox then switches to a blank white page.

Vivaldi continues to work normally. I guess I'll have to fire up Vivaldi until I can get to the bottom of the problem.

Is it the same on all your devices (excluding the XP that you don't take online :D )?

I fixed it. My laptop did the same thing so I looked at noscript.
Once I allowed msauth, in noscript,  I got the log in screen, my password screen and it went to my inbox.

I don't generally touch noscript so I'm not sure what disallowed msauth on both computers from the time it worked until today.

plodr ... confirmation for you

The last time I had an issue with it was when NoScript wasn't seeing the msauth.net domain. Once that domain was allowed, it worked.

Thanks. I wonder what changed noscript? Once I get a site working, I rarely "tweak" the noscript settings for the site.
Now to remember this in case it happens again. (I'll add it to my note card for outlook).

I stopped using NoScript some time ago due to problems associated with it. So I also stopped following new about it.

But I did note PaleMoon Blacklists NoScript due to problems. Not sure if same issues is affecting FF too.

FF acted exactly the same way as Palemoon.
I know Palemoon no longer supports it but Firefox supports noscript. I'm using v 11.0.2 , which is a different type of addon than what FF used to use and it is updated regularly.
