    gmail and firefox


    Hi. Had many many compatibility problems with windows 10. HP have been brilliant. I have to use firefox now because 10 doesn't like chrome. It doesn't like avg either.
    anyway, I recently had a hip replacement and have other medical issues. I desperately need to send a document that i scanned on my phone to the google drive on my new laptop.
    I have the same issue with sending myself an email of my personal spreadsheets.
    Every single time it defaults to outlook. I refuse to pay for microsoft products and I just need an easy solution to this headache if there is one please.
    simply put I have gone from vista to 10, I am trying to teach myself. I use firefox now with settings to gmail. I have downloaded adobe file reader, but no matter what i do i cannot email anything using my gmail email. I do not want to use outlook

    Thanks in advance

    I'm not having any problems with the free AVG on my Win10 computers, both Home and Pro.

    I have installed a Windows-based replacement for E-Mail Clients called Outlook Express Classic or OE Classic, seems to be fine on Win10 and is free. They do have a Pro version for $24.95, considerably cheaper than Outlook.

    I have seen an issue with other Webmail/online E-Mail programs where the To:, CC: and BCC: doesn't work when trying to send to the same address as in From:, best solution was to use a second address/account. Never did determine if that was a restriction by the site.
