The density in the gmail inbox is set to compact, but every time I log in it becomes normal with an obscure symbol in the box to the right. How can I get gmail to be compact right from the start?

Hello,Try the Firefox Safe Mode to see how it works there. The Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most add-ons. Try restarting the browser in safe mode. In safe mode, the problem should go away and you can change the display density in Gmail. It seems as if the offending plugin is Adblock Plus, since when you start the browser with the plugins enabled and disable Adblock Plus, the problem should be fixed.
