Other webmail sites work. Gmail worked fine with Firefox 1.0? (immediately prior to 1.07), works fine with Internet Explorer 6, works fine with Safari (Mac OS X 10.5), works fine with Firefox 1.5 beta. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. browse to http://mail.google.com 2. wait for login screen 3. wait for login screen .... n. wait for login screen Actual Results: Nothing. Neither the tab nor Firefox crashed. But the page never loaded. Expected Results: The login screen should have appeared. I emphasize that behavior seems peculiar to Firefox 1.07. Earlier version did not hang Gmail. Firefox 1.5 beta does not hang Gmail either. This problem will go away when version 1.07 goes away, presumably this fall. However Gmail is important to those who use it, so the problem is worth addressing.
have you tried in -safemode ( http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode ) ?

Safe mode does not fix anything. However, the most recent Mozilla still works, and this hanging bug was only introduced within the last week or so, so perhaps that will help- I really hope it does, as this is a major bug, IMO.
I get the same result. Gmail hangs both on the regular server and on the secure server.
