Unable to send and save drafted e-mails in webmail.earthlink.net with Firefox v54 web browsers.

Hello.

Ever since I installed Firefox v54 (upgrades and new install), others 
and I have been unable to send e-mails in EarthLink's webmail 
(http://webmail.earthlink.net) from multiple accounts' addresses from 
two MacBook Pros (El Capitan v10.11.6 and Sierra v10.12.5) and a 64-bit 
W7 HPE SP1 machine. Webmail's "Send", "Save Draft", and "Cancel" buttons 
become gr(a/e)yed out after being pressed. No requested actions occurred 
from send and saving draft options. Cancel worked though.

No problems in other updated web browsers (Chrome, Safari, and IE11) on 
the same machines. I downgraded back to Firefox v53.0.3 and retested. No 
problems!

Is anyone else having this problem too in the new Firefox v54 web 
browser? I filed a bug report as 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1373569 just in case it is 
a bug.

Thank you in advance. :)

    I'm not sure whether this will help, but it might be
worth testing other email servers to narrow it down. The
reason I say that is because Earthlink seems to have gone
downhill over the years. I cancelled web hosting with them
several years ago due to problems. Weird stuff, like entries
missing from my server logs. Someone who still has a site with
them was then unable to send email to me because Earthlink
had subbed out their email to carrierzone.com and carrierzone
didn't update their server records... for *years*! When he
sent an email the carrierzone server would see it as one of
their own, but with an invalid email address. When I tried
to write to them I got no response.

   So your email is actually handled by carrierzone. While there
may very well be a problem specific to FF, it could also be a
combination of the two.

Interesting, but no. It is a known issue in Firefox v54 web browser 
according to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1373327 that 
made my bug report a duplicate. Whew. I hope they can fix it fast!
