Earlier, someone came to my site through the search terms,"can' t access gmail." "Aha," I thought, "it must not be just me.""
Using Google brought me to their known issues page where I read this:
Some Internet Explorer 7 users are reporting the error message "Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site http://mail.gmail.com/mail/. Operation aborted." If you're experiencing this problem, please use Mozilla Firefox or the older version of Gmail.So, the answer is....."Oh well, use a different browser."
Uh...thanks Google.....that was really helpful. The problem is that Firefox isn't doing such a great job at accessing gmail either. It keeps loading and loading, and then shows the top line of my inbox, then kicks back out into the loading process again. It does this repeatedly without ever getting into the account.
As far as using the old version of gmail, I didn't even know there was an old version. I just have the home page saved in my favorites and it redirects it to wherever it wants. How do I keep the "old version" saved without it automatically redirecting to the "new version."
Any ideas out there?
