In the recent weeks, when I open my Gmail account, I constantly get connection problems. Gmail says "something is not right", "trying to reconnect", "still working", etc. This can go on like this for minutes. It becomes impossible to work.

I do not have connection problems in any other website, so it cannot be related to my internet connection.

Is there anything I can do to make my Gmail account work as before?

EDIT: the original problem happened on Firefox, and it persisted after I cleaned the cache. But, in Chromium, Gmail runs just fine. So, the problem is just in the connection between Firefox and Gmail.

  • Did you try with other browser. Clear the cache and try. – serenesat Oct 10 '16 at 7:19
  • @serenesat clearing the cache did not help, but switching from Firefox to Chromium solved the problem. Thanks! – Erel Segal-Halevi Oct 11 '16 at 4:02
  • I'd uninstall, clean the registry and reinstall if you MUST use FireFox. I usually use Chrome. Chrome, by Google, works good for Gmail. – Dale Oct 11 '16 at 6:28

Try with other browser, it would solve the problem.

  • I switched from Firefox to Chromium, and this indeed solved the problem... for exactly two days. Now, I have exactly the same problem in Chromium: "Trying to reconnect...", "Still working..." – Erel Segal-Halevi Oct 12 '16 at 19:07
  • But, after switching to Chrome and using the no-labs link: mail.google.com/mail/?labs=0 the problem is apparently solved. – Erel Segal-Halevi Oct 24 '16 at 22:08
