Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") albatros502 5/17/09 3:56 AM
Can anyone tell me when will I be able to access my gmail account??
When I want to access Gmail web page it cannot load and appears the text "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".
What do I do? How can I solve the problem? Or is this a global problem that gmail support should solve??
Looking fwd to your fast reply (got all my e-mails there and other google applications (like google calendar) which I cannpt access!!)!!

I'm having the same problem.  I had to go to another computer, and it was there, and not sure why it happened.  But I couldn't get to my google docs either. I'd love to know an answer as well.

Try using a different browser
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") tiger1dd 5/29/09 4:33 AM
I have the same problem all the time, which is why I'm going back to Hotmail (IT ACTUALLY WORKS ALL THE TIME!!!!!). I can't ever access it for my ebay info, which is a pain too. I have found that when it does it, leave it on the "Cannot Display" page, open a new window (NOT tab) of internet explorer, and it usually works

Try putting https://mail.google.com in your Trusted Sites list (Tools/Internet Options -> Security Tab).  This worked for me.

I have the exact same problem.  Wish Google tech support would pitch in and help.  Also, I cannot access google.com  When I try I get this message, "Great Success ! Apache is working on your cPanel® and WHM™ Server."

If you can see this page, then the people who manage this server have installed cPanel and WebHost Manager (WHM) which use the Apache Web server software and the Apache Interface to OpenSSL (mod_ssl) successfully. They now have to add content to this directory and replace this placeholder page, or else point the server at their real content.

Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") manny.b 10/9/09 1:39 AM
I have no idea what Apache is but I'm wondering if you are on a company server or your ISP has altered something but since you give no details of what machine/browser or anything else this has to be a an educated guess at what you do. Open Tools and go to the bottom which should give Internet Options/Options or equivalent and on the first item in this should be the home page you are signing into which you now alter to the correct address for Google and if you do this from the Google page it should revert to this next time. I have a feeling that you downloaded something and this may have been on one of those pages that we all flip through so fast as a little ready ticked box. It would be so nice if these boxes were left blank ant the choice was an open one. How many have got the YahooSkype toolbars without asking for them.

Manny B:
 
Thank you ever so much for your advice, unfortunatly that did not work.  Here is hopefully a better description of the problem.
 
I am unable to access either gmail.com or google.com  Both are being blocked.
 
When I attempt to go to www.gmail.google.com I recieve this message, "
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" or "Navigation to this page has been cancled."
 
When I attempt to go to www.google.com I recieve this message, "Great Success ! Apache is working on your cPanel® and WHM™ Server."
 
All other web addresses are working perfectly.  I use two computers on the same home network.  One works perfectly, the other cannot connect.  The one which cannot connect recently had AOL removed.  The trouble seemed to begin when I transfered my AOL mail to gmail.
 
I am using:  Windows XP Home Edition, Internet Explorer 8.0 and Norton Anti Virus version 15.0.0.8
 
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
 
Thank you, Jim Procuniar good...@gmail.com

Before anything else please try a different browser or have you already been down this path.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") sprkygrg 12/29/09 10:19 AM
I have the same/similar issues. on m$ie 7.0.5730.11 when typing "mail.google.com" in address bar i get "

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

 

Most likely causes:

  • You are not connected to the Internet.
  • The website is encountering problems.
  • There might be a typing error in the address.
But when I try to get to msn.com, no problem.  in fact no problem to any other website I can find, only connection to gmail.  same computer, same router, same firewall and I can use firefox with no problems.  funny coincidence that google and M$ are locked in battle for market share and there are connection problems on M$IE.  google team should be able to find the problem, I would think, however.  How about chiming in on this one google?  don't just rely on your users to provide support.  act like you want to defeat the darkside.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") manny.b 12/29/09 10:47 AM
Try installing Google Chrome Frame in Internet Explorer http://code.google.com/chrome/chromeframe/
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") gpweston 12/31/09 7:34 AM
Same problem here.  Have tried adding https://mail.google.com to the trusted sites with no affect. 
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") manny.b 12/31/09 8:43 AM
gpweston,

Does this mean you can't do it using IE and have you tried any of the other suggestions?

Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") gpweston 12/31/09 8:54 AM
Hi
Can't do it using IE on my PC.  It works OK on my laptop.  Both connect to the internet via Wi-Fi.  It worked OK on the PC until a few weeks ago and (to my knowledge) I didn't change anything on the PC around that time.  Have also tried disabling the McAfee and Windows firewalls as saw on another site that could be the cause.  I haven't tried Google Chrome Frame - what is that ? 
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") gpweston 12/31/09 8:55 AM
By the way, IE is version 8 and Windows is XP home edition.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") tiger1dd 12/31/09 10:19 AM
Would anyone else agree that at the times when the gmail won't come up, you also can't get logged into ebay? When it decides to act up, it usually won't let me into my ebay either, so the problem's are either identical or connected some way.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") gpweston 12/31/09 10:31 AM
Haven't tried ebay or found issues with any other sites but my gmail is permanently not working.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") manny.b 12/31/09 11:27 AM
I gave possible answers to the problems you are having above. Google has tried to solve it by using Google Chrome Frame inside IE but IE8 has posed the problems since it's conception and Microsoft seem to want it keep it that way.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") dekan365 1/11/10 12:35 PM
I was working on a customer's pc with this exact same problem... Every other computer I use can access gmail and all google products perfectly except this one computer.  I've tried different browsers and they all have the same result.  I cannot access gmail or pretty much any other google product to include searches! If anyone has any idea what may be causing this, i'm all ears... This pc is using Windows XP, any vista or 7 users have this problem?
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") manny.b 1/11/10 1:20 PM
If this used to work then try resetting to an earlier date but it could be that the pc's are not set to the correct time/date or zone which will stop the Security Certificates. They do have to be set for the correct location and the correct time for that location.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") Janet G 1/13/10 11:04 AM
This problem began yesterday when I had AT&T U-Verse installed.  I have not been able to access gmail from the main computer since then.  However, it's working fine from 2 laptops  Looking forward to a resolution soon!
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") manny.b 1/13/10 1:11 PM
Janet G

Please ask this as a new question and copy and paste the url back to here and I'll try to get you some more help.

If all the computers are accessing through the same supplier then it is something in your main pc that is causing the problem.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") jolleyjamie 1/15/10 9:45 AM
Manny.B - Thank you thank you thank you for suggesting to check the time/date on the computer! My computer's date was a month ahead - thus it wasn't allowing me access to my gmail account! I think this should be the first place people check! I've never had this problem with gmail before my time/date was changed! Thanks for all your help!!
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") andikl 1/30/10 2:01 PM
After reading a couple of the answers about checking my calendar I tried this. Sure enough, my calendar was a month ahead and setting the corrrect date fixed the problem. Funny that I have tried virtually EVERYTHING else for the last week, including and hour long chat with my network people. Hope this helps. THANKS

Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") manny.b 2/13/10 3:13 AM
You can do this from the profile of the correct account by going to the bottom of the Accounts in Settings. The last item will allow you into your profile to do this. I would keep both and use the second to store Contacts in case you want to Sync a phone and don't want the clutter caused by the main account. Just add contacts by hand when you need and make sure you take a look at it occasionally to keep it alive. Other than that it will die a natural death after a few months unless you log into it.

moubachiryounes,

Which problem are you referring to?
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") karlegloff 2/21/10 1:24 PM
I tried everything, even a system restore.  I finally switched from MS Explorer to Firefox.  This fixed the problem. 
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") gomillib 3/13/10 1:56 PM
What a moronic issue! All was fine accessing Gmail from IE6 until it stopped working. Thanks for the tip on checking the calendar. Yep, mine too was a month ahead. Probably happened the other day when the rest of the country switched to daylight savings time and Arizona didn't. Don't know how but fixing the calendar worked. I knew other people were being able to access Gmail so it wasn't a system failure. I knew that I could access from Firefox but I didn't want to switch browsers. So the calendar was the problem. What a stupid answer to an infinitely frustrating problem! Anyhow, thanks ya'll for your input.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") manny.b 3/13/10 3:49 PM
gomillib,

You do need to get rid of IE6 which is not going to be supported by anything within a month or so.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") ws6daveg 3/31/10 12:56 PM
I have the same issue
What I did was to click the delete all in browing history, then I was able to get into my gmail, until I launched IE again.
Upon investigating ended up removing the IGoogle email plug in from my IGoogle page.
I have to manually goto the gmail site, but for now I am now able to access gmail again.
ForNow
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") MalteseBippy 5/26/10 4:31 PM
I had the date wrong on my computer, I don't know how, but I was off by a month and two weeks. As soon as I set the right time and date, I got in, no problem.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") jlaudio279 5/30/10 1:05 AM
Well the date fix worked for me, kind of strange all these people me included somehow had our calendars a month ahead.  
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") Opius P 6/8/10 5:59 AM
Installing Google Chrome Frame in Internet Explorer worked for me. But what a pain now I have another Web portal to contend with. Google is undoing Microsoft by manipulating us......
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") manny.b 6/8/10 6:37 AM
Opius,

It worked until Microsoft changed things - not the other way around. If Microsoft wasn't so blatantly anti anybody who challenges them things might be a lot better.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") blondyrella 6/25/10 7:40 AM
More and more I am not able to access my sites I have accumulated. It seems to me that I am being deliberately denied, for some unknown reason. I would like an explanation as to why this is happening on a more frequent occurrence.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") jonwww 7/21/10 8:38 AM
Just started to have the same problem - only for gmail.
I am able to access the gmail account with FireFox.
Tried the Internet Options security settings which appear okay to me, and have worked for some time, until today.
Any suggestions?
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") tiger1dd 7/21/10 8:43 AM
Jonwww,

Check and make sure your time and date settings are correct, if that doesn't fix it, just read some of the above postings and try some of those fixes.


Good luck!
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") scholarmom 7/21/10 9:09 AM
OK - I've checked my date, time, zone, etc. They are all set correctly.

I use Google Chrome and it is not allowing access to Gmail. I get this message:

This webpage has a redirect loop.

I have followed all directions for deleting cache/cookies, resetting, clearing all old mail, deleted all cookies cache on ALL my IPS's and still nothing. 

I can open Gmail from Firefox, but I don't wanna have 2 different services. I'm only having this problem on my desk top computer....my laptop is working fine.   Any thoughts?
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") manny.b 7/21/10 9:29 AM
Could be something in the specific setup/add ons in the Desktop. I would look for add ons/plugins from IE which may bring their own problems with them.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") scholarmom 7/21/10 9:34 AM
what might those add ons/plugins be???  I went thru and cleaned up all my programs and downloads this morning. I cleared the cache from: Firefox, Chrome, Safari (deleted Safari btw) and Explorer. 

Turned off, waited, turned back on. Gmail worked until I closed the window, then refused to open again with the message:   REDIRECT LOOP
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") Kighzer 7/23/10 12:09 PM
Tool, Internet options,  ( Browser History )  Delete. ( uncheck  Preserve favorites website data,  check all others. )  problem fixed.    You'll have to resave all your passwords if you have windows saving them for you but you'll get access to gmail back
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") manny.b 7/27/10 4:59 PM
Try going to Gmail.com and then using that way in to create a new bookmark.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") sfpiaker 7/31/10 8:02 AM
for me the fix that worked was the date/time set on the computer. i checked and it for some reason was set to a date a few weeks back. I set it to today and wellah! got right into gmail. 
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") orant3 8/20/10 8:42 AM
I had the same problem.  Go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced then click Reset Internet Explorer Settings, restart IE and you should be able to access your gmail.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") weezmania123 12/4/10 3:21 PM

Could you explain in more depth what you are trying to do?
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") Ashraf343 12/19/10 10:45 PM
GO for IE 8... i hope it will work...
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") spedbump21 12/21/10 11:17 AM
Check host file. Clean my host file and it is working fine.
Re: Can't open gmail web site ("Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage") karlfrankjr 12/27/10 9:13 PM
Mine was a problem with the hosts file.  It was hijacked.  the host file for Windows XP is located in c:\windows\system32\driver\etc.  If you open it up you will likely see a list of website you have never heard of.  Delete all of the hosts files, including the backups.
 
For good measure, I downloaded Spybot Search & Destroy from Download.com and ran immunization which immunizes the newly created host file.  Make sure all of the immunizations are applied, especially the hosts file.  If not, you are likely still infected...
