slow connection for Gmail opening

by brean2 / July 31, 2010 7:06 AM PDT

After clicking on "gmail" the bar starts, but stops about 2mm from end.To open the gmail I have to click on "Load basic html" wait for it to change , click standard gmail again and it opens straight away..a bit frustrating.
Does anybody have this problem? Any idea how to make it open straightaway?

What type of internet connection are you using? I get something similar on my satilight connection when there is an issue at the down link location. for me reloading the page makes it work better, I also wait a few min and it clears up.

can you use apple mail or Thunderbird to download messages?

Thanks briarson,
I am using gmail for a group mailing as I have difficulty with Apple mail with numbers.
I am using Virgin mobile broadband. Was working fine for 9 months, then all of a sudden this waiting game. I changed default server from Safari to Mozilla (too many problems with Safari) about the same time..maybe this is the problem?
