I think it started 2 to 3 weeks ago. Nothing changed with my computer's setup. I use Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird email client to download from my Yahoo and Gmail inbox. It was so easy and I would routinely read my mails thru Thunderbird. But then I noticed that Thunderbird would time out trying to access Gmail. So, I decided to stop using Thunderbird, thinking it was a Thunderbird error or malfunction. I accessed Gmail directly using the browser. The strange thing is that I had no problem whatsoever with reading and using Yahoo mail, while I can't even read my mails in Gmail. Gmail would show that I have 11 mails, for example, and when I click on any of these inbox mails, the status line below would only show "Stopped" but I don't understand why. I don't have any firewall installed. Nothing changed actually with any of my computer's configuration. I mean, just suddenly Gmail went dysfunctional. I can't even read Send, Trash, Draft, or anything. Gmail just won't do as it is supposed to. It just stays there showing me how many mails I have but no more. What's wrong with Google or Gmail? Anybody encountering the same difficulties? I noticed that the Logo says, "Gmail Beta." Does this mean that Gmail is only in experimental stage with bugs unfixed? I have read in other forums that Gmail cost a lot of important emails to just disappear. Should I junk Gmail and stay with Yahoo mail? I knew I should have listened to my brother who said that I shouldn't use Gmail but I went on with it, because it used to be a lot easier and faster for me then. But not, Gmail won't even move when clicked. I don't have any problem logging in or out. Just can't read or send mails with it. I don't have any spyware or viruses. Have AVG, Ewido anti-spyware installed and my unit is clean, absolutely. I run Spybot too and Lavasoft Adaware.
