Explain your issue in full detail here:
When using gmail it opens really slow since about Sunday January 8th, 2011. I have tried using both Firefox and Internet Explorer on both Windows XP as well as Windows 7 PC connecting via a wired or wireless connection. My antivurs software on the XP is Symantec Antivurs 10.2 and Norton Antivirus 2011 on the Windows 7 system. I have not added any addons, extensions, or plugins for months. This issue just started recently no matter which Gmail account I use or what computer I use.




Please Also Include:
Operating system (e.g. WinXP): 
Program and version you use to access Gmail (e.g. Internet Explorer 7 or Outlook 2003):  
Your antivirus software (e.g. Norton 2007):
Any extensions, toolbars or plug-ins:

Gmail's gotten so slow that now it simply won't even login or load in under a minute's time.  It's been about the same timeframe as the initial poster (i.e. January 8).  I'm using Windows Vista and XP Pro and Android on various devices.

Me, too. This has been happening everyday since January 10 on both Safari and Firefox. I run on a Macbook, using OS Snow Leopard and iAntiVirus. One thing that I have noticed is that this only happens when I am at work, where the ISP is Windstream. The time-outs and outright failures to load occur whether I am on the LAN or the WiFi. On the other hand, when I use my Internet connection at home (good old fashioned dial-up), I encounter no problems whatsoever, other than the anticipated slow speed, which is remedied by the HTML format.

Call me paranoid, but I am beginning to believe that this is a net neutrality issue. The FCC December 21 vote allowed for a two-tiered system on cell phones and iPads only. Traditional computer networks should still abide by the rules. I think Google really needs to look into this.

Same here.  Gmail is slow on my laptop, my iPad and my HTC smartphone.  It suddenly happened about two or three days ago.  Downloading into Outlook on a main desktop pc seems to be reasonably ok.  Weird.

Been having this problem as well for a few days now.  Thought it was a virus, so I got BitDefender and it said my PC was clean.
Win 7, Firefox/IE 
Re: Gmail Slow or Locks Up catstokes79 1/21/11 5:52 PM
Tried logging with a second account and it locks up in the same way.  Logged in on another computer on the same home network and no problem at all.
Win 7, Firefox/IE 
Re: Gmail Slow or Locks Up catstokes79 1/21/11 5:59 PM
On the same computer I had the problem, I logged in under another user name and the problem did not happen.  So there's some debug info for you and maybe a workaround for everyone.
Win 7, Firefox/IE
