Can't open Comcast email using IE

This just started today.  I cannot open my Comcast email with IE.  I get the error message "object error".  The strange part is I can open my AOL and Gmail using the same IE browser.  I can open my Comcast email using Foxfire which leads me to believe something is wrong with my IE browser.  I am running Windows 7, 64 bit.  I would appreciate any suggestions on getting my IE browser to work with my Comcast email because that is the browser I use most often.

Re: Can't open Comcast email using IE

For the past month I have been unable to connect to xfinity home page or

any page if I use Internet explorer. I have always used IE. I tried IE9 and IE10

it just sits there and spins. I get no message.

 

I can access home page and check my comcast email using google chrome although I prefer not to. I am using Win7, 64 bit.

 

Can anyone offer any help?

Thanks

Re: Can't open Comcast email using IE

I just found the solution to my problem.  It was an IE 9 add-on.  You have to disable your add-ons one by one until you find the one that is blocking your email from opening.  To do this you can click on Tools then Internet Options, then Programs, then Manage add-0ns.  Click on one add-on at a time and then click Disable and try to open your email until you find the add-on that is blocking your email.

Which version of XfinityConnect, full or lite?  Can you get to the Preview window?  If yes...

opennXfinityConnect, click on Preferences in the Preview window, then on General.  A window opens showing full ad lite versions...which one is checked?  If the Full version is checked, check the box for the Lite version.

Closeband re-open XC.  Can you now get to your email in the Inbox?

 

Post back.

Re: Can't open Comcast email using IE

I'm going back to AT&T asap.  At least with AT&T, you can connect to their email server all the time.  Not true with Comcast.

 

Buyer beware !!!

Re: Can't open Comcast email using IE

My only other suggest is to reset your browser back to the default settings (save Favs & bookmarks first)

 

I will request a moderator come in and review this thread.

Re: Can't open Comcast email using IE

I guess I have posted in the wrong category. I can't even connect to comcast using IE9 or IE10. It just sits and spins and makes no connection to any site. I'll post somewhere else,

Thanks
