I am getting the "Problem loading page" error when trying to run gmail. I've tried many of the suggetions, but I have a Mac not a PC and cannot figure it out.

Posted

I got a new MacBookPro a couple of weeks ago, and am unable to get Firefox to load GMail. I've tried lots of the suggestions on here, but none seem to work. I have to use Firefox in order to have access to class through Blackboard, but I can't get my e-mail. It is becoming frustrating.

You could of course use Safari your default browser as a quick method of accessing gmail until you figure out the Firefox problem. (More than one browser may be used on a Mac or other computer).

Is this the only site you have problems with ? and does Safari work ok ?

Often this problem requires the page to be reloaded

  • try pressing the shift key as you reload the page

Another problem is sometimes the cookies for that site need clearing
