Gmail will not load in Firefox browser. I can get it in IE. I have disabled add-ons, extensions, reset theme to default, renamed extensions.?? files, re-started in safe mode, and a few other options, but it still won't load. Get "The connection was interrupted The connection to www.google.com was interrupted while the page was loading." However, I can go to www.google.com, but can't get to the login page or gmail link. I can get to other links there.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Try clearing your cache and cookies.
I have had this same problem for the last few days. I can connect to google.com but not to gmail.com or reader.google.com. When I try, I get the error message: "The connection to www.google.com was interrupted while the page was loading."
I have cleared the cache and cookies, but the problem remains. The problem also persists in Safe Mode.
I have no problem accessing Gmail or Google Reader in some other browsers (eg Chrome connects fine, Opera doesn't).
I'd appreciate some help. Thanks.
I've also been having this problem, using the latest version of Firefox on OS X Snow Leopard. I have tried everything suggested i.e. deleting all history, cache, cookies etc, have also completely uninstalled and re-installed Firefox several times and to no avail. I can't access www.gmail.com, mail.google.com, or even log into my Google account from www.google.com.
I would be really grateful if someone could have a look at this, it seems like a fairly widespread bug and it's really annoying and frustrating! It's stopped me from using Firefox which is not something I or the developers want I am sure!
I also cleared all cache and cookies history, and gmail still will not load on Firefox. It does load perfectly on Internet Explorer, so it appears to be a Firefox problem.
I just solved this after reading http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Firefox+cannot
Go to Tools, Options, Advanced, Encryption, and make sure that both SSL and TLS are checked. In my case, TLS was not checked. I checked it, and lo and behold, I could get back in to all the sites I'd been blocked from.
Hope this works for the rest of you.
I am having trouble accessing Gmail in html in Firefox. I have done all of the above: Cleared cache and cookie history, uninstall and reinstall, making sure TLS and SSL were checked; and I still cannot get Gmail to load in Firefox in html. I started having problems a couple days ago when it wouldn't let me attach a file to an outgoing email.
I can get everything fine in IE, but I'd prefer to use Firefox. Is there a solution coming soon?
My Firefox was hanging also at www.google.com. Clearing Cache & History did not help. I traced town the problem to be Google Desktop (which I love). Uninstalled Google Desktop and re-installing it solved the problem.
Hope that helps
