gmail firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete

Posted

I log into Google gmail, poke around a while, hit compose or go to open a message and I get gmail firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. I hit refresh, it says the same thing. I try going to mail.google.com again, it does the same thing... I clear cache and it lets me re-login but it does it every day now, it didn't used to. Every day I have to clear cache more than once just to stay in my mail.

None of this is helping. I cannot get to my gmail account. After all this clearing out cache and cookies, all I can do is sign on, then I get hit again with the error message. I work from home and can't use my computer for email now. I was using chrome for a few months but decided to come back to firefox. Looks like I made the wrong decision at the wrong time. Fix this issues and maybe I will come back in few months.

Same problem. Even if the bug has a workaround, I think this will convert a lot of people to other browsers.

I've imported bookmarks from Chrome, maybe that's the problem?
