So what is the deal with the new gmail crashing my Firefox (or stalling it)

Tuesday, November 6th, 2007

I am a big fan of gmail (and a lot of colleagues scowl at me for it). With the massive amount of emails I get daily and me working on 3 computers there is just no other way to get around them.

Until the latest update of gmail though. Now my two laptops (both Windows) get stuck and I have to shoot down Firefox 5 times a day to be able to work. Sorry Google, but what happened? I turned off Firebug as you asked me to and yet it messes up. I also tried switching to the “older interface” but my setting does not get stored (yes, cookies are enabled).

I also tried to turn off sounds of the chat inside gmail but yet it keeps crashing. Don’t make me change because of superfluous bells and whistles, I have too many good contacts in your system.
