In the past couple of days I've been having trouble getting into gmail from firefox. In IE and chrome it works as usual but in Firefox it hangs in the "Loading" screen and never finishes.

I've tried F5 and Ctrl+F5 but both don't seem to change anything.

All other google application seem to work fine.

Any ideas?

Do you have Firebug installed, and enabled for the site? That's known to slow gmail down.

nope. no Firebug. – shoosh Apr 21 '10 at 22:15

Quite simply. Clear your cache.

Also try Firefox in safe mode (type 'firefox safe' in search).

And try to disable any Gmail labs.

Go with Basic HTML version if worse comes to worse.
