Message+ and web messaging completely unusable

I have become so frustrated with trying to get desktop-based messaging to work reliably in any context, whatsoever. Hoping someone can help me find some solutions.

Working on a MacBook Pro running Sierra 10.12.6. I can install the Verizon Message+ app on my computer, but the program hangs CONSTANTLY. I get the spinning beachball literally every time I click on a contact or prior conversation. The hanging lasts even longer if my conversation includes any MMS messages or picture media.

If I try to utilize the webpage-based messaging service, I can no longer even log on to the page. I enter my username and password and the page literally hangs and never refreshes or loads my conversations. This happens regardless of what browser I try (Safari, Chrome, Firefox).

Has ANYONE had any luck getting these seemingly simple applications to work well? Thanks in advance for any help-

Re: Message+ and web messaging completely unusable

I can read the messages fine. It is just that if I try to type anything in response, the program momentarily freezes with the spinning beach ball and I can't type or enter anything at all.

Cookies have been cleared, cache has been cleared, and I even completely reinstalled Mac OS X. Still the same problem. Also I am not running any anti-virus or firewall.
