I just upgraded to firefox 1.0.4 and now when I try to access gmail it just keeps redirecting to a page that redirects to it (infinite redirecting). Anyone else having trouble?

Sounds like their browser detection is, um.... mis-implemented. And their redirect code is, too.

Have you tried changing your user-agent string back to 1.0.3 using the user-agent-switcher extension, or any of the other similar extensions? If it works when you do that, then it's a legitimate bug on Google's end.

The two UA strings are:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

It's working now.
