I have 2 Gmail accounts. My usual one stopped loading at 90% on the blue loading line. It will work if I use the HTML for slow connections but if I try to go to standard view it sticks at 90% again. The other Gmail account worked fine until today when it also stopped at the 90% loading mark and doesn't load any further. What can I do to fix this?

I have OSX 10.9.5, Safari 9.1.3, I have checked for any updates. No Gmail add-ons or browser extensions. I have cleared caches and all history, browser and cookies. I also deleted a big chunk of emails and my usage is less than 50% of my total space allowance on Gmail.

This only happens on my iMac; Gmail works fine on my laptop.

  • Are you using Gmail or Inbox by Gmail? Have you tried with Chrome and Firefox? Jan 20, 2018 at 15:07
  • using gmail. No not tried Chrome or Firefox. its weird that it loads fine with the other gmail account. Jan 20, 2018 at 15:29

    By the other hand, as you are using old OS and browser versions, this issue is very likely to be related to not having enough resources. I suggest you to ask on Ask Different. Jan 20, 2018 at 16:45

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it was a transient bug, since fixed.

I made no other changes other than in my question but magically today the issue of gmail not loading past 90% is fixed and it works on both my accounts. So this question is now closed. Thanks to all who commented.
