I have a very strange problem. Every time I try to login to Gmail ( with my username and my password over a browser (Firefox, Chrome & Internet Explorer), I cannot login. It says: "Username or Password incorrect".

If I try to do the same with an Android based browser (on mobile phone and Kindle Fire) the login works just fine.

I replicated the problem on four different computers with Linux (Mint Xcfe), Windows Vista& Windows 7) over the course of a week.

It just drives me crazy. Did anyone have the same problem? Or found a solution?

Thanks very much in advance!

Have you tried typing the password into notepad where it's not masked, just to make sure all your keys are working and CAPS aren't on? – Derrick Mar 8 '13 at 19:02

Change your password to something different then try it on both, if the it happens again, update the post.

try to login to from your browser and look for account activity reports, or try updating your settings from there.
