    For the passed two weeks Gmail has been loading INCREDIBLY slow on all computers. At first I thought it was my desktop but now my laptop, work computers and any computer in general takes forever.

    I thought maybe it was because I used French gmail, nope that didn't help changing to English.

    I have done reformats, cleaned my comps etc... but Gmail still takes forever to load an e-mail (just a simple regular text) or even open a folder to organize my stuff.

    Any thoughts?

    I haven't noticed any slowness. Have you tried a different browser?

    Mine has been fine. Do you have tons of emails? Maybe you have so many emails that it takes a while to load them? But then again I am basically computer retarded so NO idea.

    I've seen google/gmail do all kinds of funky things randomly.. some days it'll load insanely slow for me, and other days not a problem. I dunno what it's about!

    I have had no problem other than more junk than usual. Gmail used to be very good about filtering it.

    I would try cleaning out all of the mails that I could: spam, trash, old useless emails, even addresses.

    Hi JP, missed you.

    I try to keep only 10 emails in my inbox with the others filed away in corresponding folders. Everything for easy access. But now I click on an e-mail and "loading..." for a solid 10-14s ugh.

    Unfortunately, every browser is doing it so far icon_sad.gif

    Go into settings>Labs and disable some of your apps. Empty your trash and spam. Sometimes too many apps can slow down the server. Create and Move all your emails to a new folder. Close gmail and sign back in. Folders (Except inbox) do not load when you open gmail.


    First try clearing the browser cache for the version you're using:

    Firefox 3.5.x for Windows

    1. Click the Tools menu.
    2. Select Clear Recent History.
    3. Under 'Time Range to Clear' select Everything.
    4. Select the 'Details' checkbox.
    5. Select the 'Cache' checkbox.
    6. Click the 'Clear Now' button.

    If, however, this is problem appears on different computers, I doubt cookies/cache is the problem.

    thanks though for the other suggestions.

    While Browsing Internet I landed into one cool video named as Google Toilet. This is a funny video which shows how badly Google needs your data to attach the targeted advertisement. It's a hoot!
