Problem with Email Delays

Problem with Email Delays

I am experiencing delays while using email. When there are advertisements on the right side of the screen, I can open and delete emails. During the times when there are no ads on the right side, I am unable to open, delete or use email. It is frozen until an ad appears.

Re: Problem with Email Delays


Try clearing out your browser's cache/browsing history. When you have done that, close out the browser and re-start it in a fresh session.

If that doesn't do it, then try using a different browser and see if you can duplicate the problem that way. If it works OK then you will know the problem probably lies with the first browser. eg: if you are using Internet Explorer, try Chrome or Firefox.

Also, you could try switching from the Full version of Xfinity Connect to the Lite version. Go to Preferences>>>>General, and see which one you're using now. Full is the default. Select the Lite version.

Yiu may also want yo set up add blockers.

On the Honepage, right side, click on AD INFORMATION below an ad.  A window opens allowing you to block some ads.

Also, you might want to install Ad Blocker Plus for your browser, to block ads.

To CCCarole, I tried your suggestion to block some ads and have had no issues since.  Many Thanks!
