Can't open gmail after updating firefox
I updated to Firefox 14.0.1 and gmail will not open. Have been trying for several hours since the update. Other google sites work fine and I am able to open gmail with Safari, which makes me believe it is a firefox update issue.

You can also check the network.http.* prefs on the about:config page and reset all bold user set network.http prefs to the default value via the right-click context menu -> Reset.
This is the standard Firefox fix that does not work. The problem is not the cache nor is it the cookies. The issue is a firefox issue only and G-Mail can be opened in other browsers such as IE. This is so frustrating and everyone is still complaining there is no decent fix after many complaints. I've re-installed mozilla - still doesn't fix it.
Try to set the network.http.spdy prefs to false on the about:config page.
You can also try to disable IPv6.
