Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? bmoloney 11/4/08 1:41 AM
Has anyone else had trouble loading gmail since updating to the new version of chrome? I updated yesterday, and since then have not been able to access it, it just loads about 9/10 of the way and hangs, then redirects to the "gmail seems to be taking longer than usual page". The standard html version works fine. I have tried accessing my email in firefox and had no problems with the standard view so I'm pretty sure the problem resides in the new version of chrome.

I am having the same problem only in Firefox.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? zaloc 1/27/09 11:44 PM
Same problem. Newest version of gmail loads 9.9% of the way (status bar) and then stops until it says taking longer then usual. Other browsers work fine. Sometimes works but often doesn't. Grrrr.

after new update of chrome, gmail loading bar goes almost all the way but never completes.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? shlomibe 1/31/09 2:13 PM
change http:// to https:// and it works
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? AviSingh 2/4/09 4:54 PM
http to https did not work for me, but for a change something Works fine in Internet Explorer. Aha !
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Grampafox 2/8/09 8:21 AM
Changing to https:// doesn't solve problem.  This problem appears about 50% of the time.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? vicarious1 2/8/09 12:42 PM
Exactly same problem here with Gmail in VISTA home on a PC and WIN XP on a lap both with latest Firefox update. Quite annoying to wanting to tell people Firfox and google works better than IE and than get hic ups like that .
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? mohammad.nomani 2/8/09 9:57 PM
Same problem here.  I am using Firefox 3.0.5.  Vista Basic.  On home computer and work computer.  Loads almost 100% than STOPS, says its taking too long and to try the standard HTML version.  What the HELL is going on?  I have cleaned all my cache.  What else can I do?
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Megaera 2/20/09 9:47 AM
I too have had this problem with Firefox and Vista Home basic. I've used CCLEANER and still it hangs.  Would appreciate any help.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? typedink 3/5/09 2:35 PM
I am having this same issue and it is very frustrating. Any ideas?
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Shawn (Googler) 3/10/09 2:31 PM
Hey guys,

There's a Gmail troubleshooter that's available. Try going through the steps and see if the advice pertains to you. I included a link below.

Cheers,
Shawn
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Whitemikesf 3/11/09 8:55 AM
Try clearing your cache (Tools>Clear Private Data).  This worked for me.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Helsyn 4/6/09 4:15 PM
I disabled add-on ".NET Framework Assistant", and that resolved the issue on my work laptop.  On my home PC I disabled a java extension (can't remember which one), and that seemed to fix it.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? rdconsulter 4/8/09 1:31 PM
I have not changed my gmail but still having the problem loading with standard view. I use IE7 and never had problem in 2 years with gmail, until now. .
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? mylifeinfiction 4/9/09 7:38 PM
THIS WORKED FOR ME

Change http:// to https:// and it works just add a "s" after the "p" and bookmark it :)

THANKS shlomibe!
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Darthfett 4/12/09 1:40 AM
https works great.  I was on Firefox.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? rwmarvin 4/22/09 9:15 AM
Clearing the cache (Tools -> Clear Browsing Data....) worked for me.

Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? aaron.t.cheung 5/25/09 8:11 PM
a little hack that works every time:  go to google.com/ig and then click on gmail in the gmail window.  the standard view will load properly.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Naveed Ahmed 5/27/09 9:33 PM
I still cant access gmail with the latest chrome build. I have tried http and https too. Also tried the trick mentioned above by aaron.t.cheung.
None are working.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? anu.mishra 6/1/09 4:07 AM
i am on firefox.. load gmail in basic view.go to settings ..select always use https..save it..then firefox - tools - clear private data..close firefox..restart it and it works!
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? sprudd 6/1/09 4:13 AM
The https option works for me.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Megaera 6/2/09 12:46 PM
The https option seems to be working..Thank you!
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? srdorothy 6/8/09 10:06 AM
I already had https option in use, and had tried everything I could think of--thanks for the Clear Private Data tip; gmail is loading standard view for me now.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? lolwme 7/28/09 7:40 AM
You won't believe this.  As much as I detest IE, I had to download 8.0 to get into my Gmail with standard,. not HTML for slow connection, view since I have a deadline to get our #1 Amazon Best Selling Kid's Book's Expanded 4th Edition ready for the printer so time was of the essence.

After downloading IE 8.0 and viewing my Gmail in stanmdard view, I decided to check back with Mozilla Firefox 3.?? and foudn my standard view in Gmail loading just fine.

Could it be that Microsoft somehow has control over our windows based PCs?  Who knows?  Download it and let it be!  Happy again with Gmail but still ticked off about Google Desktop Indexing no longer indexing my numerous Gmail accounts since 12-31-2007.  I came to heavily rely on that service but Google has seen fit to add Labels and Tags, etc., but not service their most loyal customers.  There is a Larry's Gmail Indexer but so far it only works for ONE Gmail account.  He said he would work on that but I have not found it yet.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? baranda 8/10/09 1:37 PM
If you had any gmail lab feature enabled. Disable them by starting gmail with this: http://mail.google.com/mail/?labs=0
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? bobblefrog 9/23/09 1:59 PM
I had same issue after updating latest version FF.  I tried clearing cache and that solved my issue (using https did not).
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? JuliJuli9 12/6/09 2:51 PM
Disabling all extensions or putting an 's' helped not at all. Cleaning all my cache and cookies worked for me!
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? rougal 12/10/09 5:24 AM
I'd read the help page of Gmail (http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=15049) and they gice the following advice: "If you're directed to the basic HTML view of Gmail, but would like to try using the standard Gmail view, visit http://mail.google.com/mail?nocheckbrowser. Keep in mind that standard view may not work, even with this link, if your browser isn't supported."
It's work for my on Firefox 3.5.5
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? medavies 12/17/09 7:17 PM
How could Chrome actually have a problem loading Gmail? I've tried various suggestions offered, but it's f*&#ing ridiculous that I should be finding workarounds to load Google's email product with Google's browser. I was liking Chrome until now. Very frustrating.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? gwieder 12/22/09 8:44 AM
Was having problems with my gmail in Chrome Beta. Reinstalled the previous "stable" version. No problems.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Mrs. Sedler 12/23/09 4:47 PM
Well, I haven't updated anything & am only getting the plain white screen unless I select "Load basic HTML".   ???
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Albertpr9 1/4/10 2:46 PM
When you get redirected to "gmail seems to be taking longer than usual" page, just disable Google Labs... That will fix the problem.

Cheers
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? godslam 1/11/10 7:21 PM
All I did was clear the cookies and saved data. Then it worked fine. I'm guessing that it saved something in those files that made Gmail not work. It would also make sense that it was some type of update for Google Labs. Another thing that would be worth trying is logging out first and then logging back in. In case you don't want to delete cookies. I'm willing to bet that 99% of the people posting here have their Gmail automatically log them in.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? MattCatt 1/15/10 10:58 AM
For me it was the "Hide read labels." lab feature that broke it for me. I disabled all that I use and re-enabled one at a time and that's the one that caused Gmail to hang in Chrome. That is the only one still disabled and I can now load Gmail just fine.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? azazal88 1/23/10 3:40 AM
Check out this link people!
http://www.google.co.uk/support/forum/p/Chrome/thread?tid=32660e3b4eb8c706&hl=en
You basically need to make a new chrome profile. Worked perfectly for me! Try it out and see! It is the second post in the forum by @dwight.stegall.. Good luck!
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? mdub 1/28/10 10:00 AM
Yes, it was "Hide read labels" for me as well. Turned it off, and now everything is going swimmingly.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? dpeter20 1/30/10 5:03 PM
Emptying cache and removing the cookies solved the problem for me!
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? beefstu 2/3/10 6:32 AM
Logging in to gmail with Labs disabled worked for me.  This is the link: http://mail.google.com/mail/?labs=0

Thanks baranda.  Chrome for XP was the only browser I had this problem with.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Jennifer B 2/6/10 7:37 PM
I'm thinking this is happening for people using Chrome on Windows, after an update or installing an extension.  I installed a new Facebook extension and suddenly gmail wouldn't load. I've been searching tweets etc and the common thread seems to be PC users and updates.

If this is happening to you:  Clear your cache and browsing data and hopefully it will start working again.  Now let's hope it keeps working, I had a different problem the other  day that required me to clear my cookies every 2 minutes, until it fixed itself overnight.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Mike Klimczak 3/1/10 5:18 PM
I fixed mine by resetting the user preferences in Firefox. I found an article on it here http://www.backup.com.au/News-Blog/firefox-and-gmail-qstandard-viewq-problem.html
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? achiu 3/3/10 12:48 AM
I have the same problem since yesterday. The standard view page is not loading and after two seconds it automatically shuts down my IE 6 browser or gives me an IE error screen. I tried using other accounts to login with the same PC and it works fine. It seems my account is the only one who is having issue! I now need to click on the HTML view while it's still loading before the loading page close. HELP!!!
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? gniw 6/18/10 12:17 PM
This is extremely annoying, since a supported Google service (gmail) is not working with another supported Google product (Chrome).
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? selkie 7/27/10 9:43 AM
July 27, 2010 - My g-mail e-mail page is all wrong - no labels, no indications of others on line, all one colour (no grey backgrounding), operation keys "archive", "delete" etc. there, but CROSSED OUT!? In trying for "settings", thinking this was an update gone berserk, I tried to ask for the previous version, but that, too, was inoperative and incomplete.
Do I have to start all over, or what? Is there any way of getting the amenities of g-mail back after this nasty surprise package?
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Ramesh_13 10/6/10 6:27 AM
I think Google might be doing some maintainance
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? SKhorshed 11/3/10 5:38 PM
I had the same problem after I had my PC formated , Icould not resolve the problem until I downloaded window IE 8, the everything went OK
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? cambeuluk 11/10/10 4:28 PM
I am using an Apple MacBook Pro running Firefox 3.6.10 and since the recent browser 'upgrade' cannot access the facilities of Gmail in Standard mode. I have the same problem with Safari. The limitations of HTTP mode make Gmail an impractical mail client for me. Having attempted to resolve this using all the recommended tips (cache cleaning, logging in to https etc). Nothing works. Of course, where these do work for some users, the problem appears to originate in the user's computer, but in my case, the problem is either the browser or Gmail or both. I am amazed that Gmail has not taken account of the latest version of some of the most popular browsers. Since I am reluctant to do away with Gmail altogether, having previously never seen any reason to use the E-mail client 'Mailplane' I tested this utility with Gmail and it works - allowing me to use the Standard mode again. However, I am annoyed that I should I be forced to do this.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? CaptainKai01869 12/20/10 2:54 PM
I have the problem too, similar anyway, it loads all the way then sort of stops and the bar goes blue like a hyperlink and I have to refresh which usually gets it normal eventually, but it is annoying >< and Chrome is the best browser so I hope it gets fixed.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? CaptainKai01869 12/20/10 3:21 PM
I seem to have stopped it with uninstalling McAfee SiteAdvisor and changing to Google Chrome extension called WOT *shrugs* but it would be nice if they sorted it as the McAfee one is very good and used by many people.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? computer master 1/3/11 12:19 PM
My problem: Gmail was loading and stopping up till the progress bar reached the end. Then, gmail flashed and then, it went back to the loading screen with the progress bar almost at the end. Then, no more information was sent to the internet. So, I was stuck on the loading page

NOTE: THIS IS A GOOGLE CHROME ONLY PROBLEM. I tried it on Firefox and Safari and IE 8 and it all works.

SOLUTION: Change URL to gmail.com/?labs=0
                  This disables all labs features, which I think are the problematic things.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Chriskmee 1/7/11 10:54 AM
"Try clearing your cache (Tools>Clear Private Data).  This worked for me."

also worked for me! thanks
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? FWIW 1/8/11 1:14 PM
Changing the URL to gmail.com/?labs=0 did not solve the problem for me.  Clearing browsing data (Customize and Control  Google Chrome: Options: Under the Hood: Clear Browsing Data) works, but only temporarily.  I have to do that each time before I access Gmail.  It is a Chrome only problem and I am not aware of any changes that I may have made to my computer to cause it to happen.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Spartacus26 1/8/11 6:46 PM
remove the McAfee site advisor extension, reboot Chrome. Tell me if Gmail works now.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? FWIW 1/8/11 8:26 PM
I'm not sure how you remove the SiteAdvisor "extension," but uninstalling McAfee SiteAdvisor using the green icon in the upper right corner of Chrome appears to have worked.

I still have a question about why that just started giving me a problem.  But thank you for the recommendation.  SiteAdvisor is a great idea, but I certainly can't use it if it gums up the works.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Spartacus26 1/8/11 9:17 PM
@FWIW,  site advisor's last update caused this gmail bug
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? FWIW 1/9/11 4:53 AM
Many thanks.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Lillygrillzit 1/9/11 7:37 AM
FWIW, They need to bump you up to a level 2 for this one! I don't know when that cute little green McAfee site adviser popped up there, but that was the problem. Earlier I clicked on the McAfee site advisor and it offered to sell me software to work with Google Gmail.

I uninstalled on the bar, and it immediately loaded my Gmail that was hanging in another window.

Thank you! It is very frustrating to see flashes of mail, and know there is mail to be tended to, and not be able to get to it.

My gratitude and 2 Thumbs up to you!
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? JeffStapes 1/9/11 2:27 PM
Disabled the McAfee site advisor extension and works. Thanks Spartacus26.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? Lillygrillzit 1/9/11 2:41 PM
Spartacus gets the props! I just looked at the most recent post for this problem, and saw FWIW
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? kpgossler 1/17/11 7:58 PM
Hi All, having the same problem, on all platforms windows and mac since the upgrade.
After trying a lot of your suggestions, finally managed to find the piece of software that is causing my problems: AdBlock. As soon as I disabled AdBlock for the Google and Gmail sites, all is running nicely. So, it seems that AdBlock is interfering massively with the latest version of Chrome and I have no other choice than to disable it.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? ihoonte 3/13/11 9:28 AM
I've been trying to figure this out for a few days now and after deleting cache 100 times, installing updated Firefox, updating OSX, and a few other adjustments... I turned off a new plug-in I had installed, ad blocker, and now it works fine again.

I wish google would fix it I suspect it's due to all the networking connections of email accounts and social accounts dated Thursday may 26 8:19 PM HST.
Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? photosnoop 6/23/11 2:27 PM
I have no problem loading my Gmail, except my tool bar is not as it should be.  The buttons run vertical and not in alignment with the words.  I have IE9.  Anybody else have this problem?

Re: Gmail not loading in standard view after new update? SlickStretch 10/25/11 4:16 AM
When clearing the cache in google chrome, make sure that the checkboxes for "Empty the cache" and "Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data" are both checked.

AND

Make sure the drop down box is set to "the beginning of time"
