since yesterday, every time I try to open gmail using firefox, I am unsuccesful. I can, however, open it with IE. If I clear my web history in Firefox, it lets me open gmail but I would like to not have to do that every time I want to check my email.
I am running XP pro on a Dell Latitude 630

Does anyone know why this is happening and what I can do to fix it?

I would try deleting your cookies and cache and see if this resolves your issue:
  • start FireFox
  • press Ctrl, Shift, and Delete at the same time - a new window should open
  • make sure Cookies and Cache are checked
  • click Clear Private Data Now
Does this resolve your problem? If not maybe someone else might have an idea.

Will it let you view the basic html version of Gmail?

I did some research, and it appears it may be due to corrupt extension files. Here's a link:

Let us know if that helps.
