I can't get gmail to list messages in Firefox. shows over 250 are in inbox queue
- does not work in my default profile
- does not work in safe mode
- works in a new profile

Since it does not work in safe mode, I think there is no reason to
retest by disabling extensions.

I removed all google.com cookies
reset all about:config items with gmail

Works in IE
Worse in Opera nothing shows on the page at all after logging in
and I make no changes to Opera.

Windows 2000 Firefox 2.0.0.5 more details at

perhaps you're seeing gmail in standard view. If you look
under "You are currently using . . . of your 2879 MB" then
you will see the options of:

Gmail view: standard with chat | standard without chat |
basic HTML

try clicking on basic HTML. Do things work now?

I'm running Win2k SP 4 and FF 2.0.0.5 as well, and I don't have that
problem. Gmail loads fine. I don't know if it helps, but I did have the
problem when I used Maxthon. The page would finish loading, but the screen
would remain blank (white). I know when Gmail first came out, it had issues
with FF, but I thought the issues were since resolved. I'm assuming you're
using the mail.google.com link? A while back, a no browser check link would
work for such issues. Just out of curiosity, will it work for you if you
use this link:

=========

Sure does, Thanks, and pasted big generated url which I guess has all
my settings and probably ID into Opera and it works as well and made
it even longer url about five times the big one I gave it. Which since the
page was blank in Opera that's an additional relief.

Here is what I misread, and Opera is clearly not in the top group, but
I wasn't concerned about it, and it looked like Firefox was in the top
supported group but I guess it lost when it moved up to 2.0.0.5.

No it doesn't work, but clicking on "basic HTML" as suggested by Peter (/Grant)
worked fine from there as well. Thanks.

I haven't been able to figure this out myself. It works
just fine in a plain profile, but not in my normal one. It
must be a setting somewhere.
