Explain your issue in full detail here:

The new Gmail is horrid. It is SO SLOW when accessing it, I could make a cup of tea (almost). I use it on both Safari (5.1.1.)  AND Firefox (10.0.2) and have slow issues with both browsers. It's also difficult to access my labels on the side. Hard to click just right to access the slide bar, and then to be able to actually slide all the way down the list of labels. So irritating. The OLD Gmail was WONDERFUL, easy to access everything, simple and clear. What in the world is the benefit to users with this new "upgrade"? Maybe so you can access our personal info better?  I cannot find a benefit, personally. The old Gmail was sooooo much better.

Mac OSX 10.6.8
Safari 5.1.1
Firefox 10.0.2
Normal issue toolbars
Plugins, extensions? don't know.
