    I primarily use my hotmail account for all things I don't want to use my personal email but i have a couple of things tied to my gmail account, which I hardly ever access.

    I went to sign in, forgot my password, initiated the "forgot password" process, got the new password, and then...

    THERE'S NOWHERE TO FUCKING SIGN IN OR JUST READ MY FUCKING EMAIL!

    Is this some ploy to FORCE me into upgrading to Google Plus?

    Let me know, please. If so, I'll just fucking delete the account. Fuckers! :pissed:

    Thanks, but I think the issue was related to using firefox. I switched browsers (to Chrome, where I have hardly any add-ons) and boom! It loaded.
    And I didn't even receive the message I went through all of this for. :jj:

    :fail:

    I have no problem on FF accessing my main gmail account from the speed dial add-on. However, I see they've made it harder and trickier, but still doable to log off and then try to log onto my other gmail accounts. Sign out/manage accounts on this device/add account/sign in with account name/pw. Much more cumbersome but still navigable.

    Firefox freezes for a few seconds frequently. I think the current version has a bug or two in it.

    I tried that. Didn't work. I really think it has something to do with all the ad-blocking stuff I have on Firefox because when I switched to Chrome, it opened right up. No problems. :bigthink

    "Yahoo Inc, which also runs a rival Internet mail service, seized the moment to post a screenshot of the Gmail error page to Twitter. Yahoo later apologized for the barb and deleted the tweet."

    Yeah, it's like every 15-30 seconds or so. I notice it when I'm on this site and I have the post count set to 100. As I'm scrolling downward, about halfway through the browser locks up, I have to let go of the mouse, re-click on the mouse and resume scrolling.

    Irritating as all fucking hell.

    And I disabled the flash plug-in because whenever I have it enabled and click on a movie, the browser jumps back to the parent window. So. fucking. annoying.

    Sounds about right, although i have the freezing problem on any long page. I thought it was my PC, but my hard drive crashed a couple of weeks ago, so this is a new build with a hybrid drive, the problem remains. And I haven't loaded up any of the add-ons I had previously.

    I hate Gmail's interface...a long thread with multiple participants is confusing as hell, attachments are buried in a pile of shit, it blows. Maybe I should have stuck with my old 1997 Hotmail account....:facepalm:

    Oh yeah, also with really long pages on firefox, I noticed that sometimes the animated gifs stop animating.

    Not to mention that they read all your fucking mail, but hey, you get what you pay for and since we didn't pay anything for it...I guess we're supposed to accept that?

    It's a really fucked up thing, ya know. If you think about it. "Hey, we have email! Please sign up."

    Way easier to mine for data when you use their browser.

    I use Gmail too. Friday it was down for a bit.
