None of the stinking buttons will work in gmail. I can log in from the igoogle screen, but when I try to log out from the sign out button, NOTHING HAPPENS. So I close the browser and restart, then I cannot log in from the sign in button. WTF??? I have to close the browser just to log out of my account! I just switched over to CHROME and DO NOT LIKE THE FACT THAT IT HAS AUTOMATIC SIGN IN (no matter that you sign out) and I don't want to have to go to the settings menu every time I wish to sign out of my account. THIS BITES TOO. I don't want every Tom and Hairy Dick being able to access my accounts! WTF?????!!!! I'd rather go back to Mozilla, but can't use it.

Hi Cor El.

Got it all worked out. Just reset Firefox. Hopes this doesn't happen again, cause I've no idea why it happened. I'm just happy it's working properly now, as I REALLY did not want to use Chrome. Thanks for you speedy response though; although I tried the steps you suggested and that did not work. Guess a good old-fashioned "just kick it" (the reset) was all I needed. Now, if only I can remember how I reset it! LOL

Have a great one!
