Ok so im in the middle of no where (here on the southern tip of africa).

But 9 out of 10 times when i load gmail it hangs and stalls . and i have to refresh using https ?

Is it only me or are other people having similar experiences ?

Other than that all my other services from google are fine .

I'm not having any problem like that that from the US.

Do you have the problem with more than one browser? And since you are in the "middle of nowhere", I assume you are using a satellite connection - so I also wonder about any latency problems there. If more than one browser hangs up, then that's the next issue I'd consider.

okay middle of nowhere - like cape town south africa compared to many folks in this forum who are else where - maybe a bit to melodramatic

no i use adsl .... but im assuming theres loads of hops from my ip to gmails ....

using firefox on ubuntu .... and firefox on windows ... will check with ie.

For windows Try Chrome! Gmail rocks with Chrome

I noticed this while traveling through South America (Peru in particular) a couple months ago. It would hang while loading... had to either hit refresh or "Load basic HTML" version.

My Gmail won't load on Machu Picchu! Google's broken! ;)
