I seem to have a problem with firefox--I recently (accidentally) updated it to 3.0, and ever since I am having a problem with my gmail, and sometimes with other servers. When I log into my gmail, it always refreshes twice. This was not happening previously. Can anyone help me solve this problem. Similarly, when I go into my library system (as well as other sites) at my university, often times, I have problems with the server as there is a continual 'refresh' so that I can never enter certain sites.
Thank you

Does this happen away from the university as well?

If not, I have to wonder if this is proxy server related.

At your University you should have an IT department. Or at least some place people go for IT. Go to their office and ask them about Firefox 3.x and their compatibility.

If not an IT-dedicated department go to your main office and ask them where you can go for IT inquiries.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
