Since Gmail implemented multiple sign-on, I have been unable to create a bookmark URL that will always go to my "@gmail.com" inbox. For hosted domains, it's easy enough to make the bookmark URL: https://mail.google.com/a/example.com will always take you to your @example.com inbox. However, this does not work with @gmail.com addresses. I am aware of the https://mail.google.com/mail/u/[number] address form, however this address is dependent on the order in which you signed in to accounts during this browser session, and thus is not an acceptable URL that will always go to the same place.

Is there any URL that will always take me to @gmail.com address, assuming I am logged in to that account?

Javascript bookmarklets would be acceptable, but anything involving a plugin or add-on is not acceptable.

Looking for the same - were you able to figure this out? –  user15654 Dec 18 '11 at 10:21
    
No. I gave up and switched to Chrome where I can use the "Pin tab" feature and at least it isn't as annoying to leave several GMail tabs open. –  aocole Jan 16 '12 at 19:37

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/?authuser=user@gmail.com

Seems to work quite fine for me.
