    For the username I believe you have to add the @gmail.com. Did you try it that way?

    Weird. I have always been able to log into Gmail fine on every browser on my mac. I have a friend who runs Panther and constantly uses Gmail and the other programs available through Google. I would highly doubt it would have anything to do with your operating system anyway. Could you have some sort of firewall up that could be blocking it? Maybe blocking something that would support ajax coding or something? I don't know...

    It's strange, but firefox is unable to detect the internet automatically. I need to get the internet IP from the IT administrator, as they have a static IP set up.

    I'll try firefox then...

    I would have thought the ability to read sites like ruby, dhtml, and ajax would all com with the brower, no?

    huh?

    Those aren't sites but languages/tools used by some web sites. Some of them are used on the server end and have nothing to do with the browser.

    I think you must be doing something wrong. I just tested Gmail on Firefox, Opera, Omniweb, Safari and Konqueror (on X11) in both 10.3 and 10.4 and no problems.


    I'm confused you mentioned using gmail from the browser and then mention the accounts page. (which is a mail client setting)
    Please stick with getting one working first before jumping between different methods.

    So when you go to gmail.com and enter [email protected] and your password, what happens. Please be as detailed as possible. (any messages, etc)
