I'm unable to access to gmail using firefox 7.0.1 on Windows7

I'm able to access to my GMail account with another browser.

I verified the encryption

Tools -> Options -> Advanced

And both check boxes Use SSL 3.0 and Use TLS 1.0 are checked.

I tried to type the address directly into the address bar.

It seems that other https sites are slower... I didn't mesure it though.

What is going on ?


It still doesn't work and I've noticed that is accessed by the browser when I access to gmail with firefox.

1. can you access Firefox with a different browser? 2. what is your error message (if any). 3. what is the exact URL you're trying to access? – wizlog Oct 7 '11 at 0:33

1) is an important question, it lets us know if the issue is with the broser or something external to it - like your machine, local connection or internet connection – Paul Oct 7 '11 at 7:35
@Paul I don't understand the question. Can I access Firefox with a different browser ??? I can access GMail with another browser, like I wrote in the question. I don't know how to access Firefox. – Luc M Oct 7 '11 at 10:44
Oh! And Yes and I can access GMail with Firefox with another PC on my network. – Luc M Oct 7 '11 at 10:45
