Why Won’t Gmail Load?

Typically this is due to firewall privacy settings. Here are a couple of fixes, post below if these don’t work for you and we’ll provide alternate suggestions.

How do I get Gmail to Load Again?

Diagnose the Problem

If you’re still not successfully connecting to Gmail try diagnosing the problem and adjusting firewall settings accordingly. As an example, in Zone Alarm you can enable the “Privacy Advisor”:

Enabling Zone Alarm’s Privacy Advisor

  • Open ZoneAlarm.
  • Click on “Privacy”
  • Click on the “Main” tab (next to “Site List” and “Cache Cleaner”)
  • Under “Cookie Control,” click on “Custom”
  • Check the box “Show Privacy Advisor” at bottom

Enable Cookies and Clear Cache

Make sure you have cookies enabled for Gmail.com, and try clearing your web browser’s cache. If that doesn’t work, browse to google.com, and in the top right corner sign out the user (if they’re signed in). Then sign in yourself, and click on the “Gmail” link at top left. If that doesn’t work, we suggest you download and try a new browser .

Gmail Still Won’t Load?

If all these suggestions still aren’t helping yo in fixing the account access issue, there’s some official Google suggested steps you can take to help get your Gmail up and running. Here are the official Gmail Known Issues from Google:

Clear Cache, then Reset PC

Some reports indicate that clearing your browser’s cache and restarting your browser may not be enough. Try a full PC reboot and see if that works. But if it doesn’t work you need to follow another way.

Firefox Constantly Refreshes “Loading…” Page

This is an issue unique to Firefox that causes the Gmail page to redirect in an infinite loop. The key to solving this problem is signing in to the secure version of Gmail at //mail.google.com/mail.

Stuck on “Loading…”

There’s various scenarios that might occur in this situation:

  • You might get stuck on the “loading…” screen
  • You might see a blank screen
  • You might get redirected to the basic Gmail version

The connection has timed out

If you’re getting the message “The connection has timed out. The server at www.google.com is taking too long to respond.“, and other web pages are loading fine, try accessing Google from another PC on your local network. If that works, the issue is local to your PC, and one of the above suggestions should resolve the problem. You may also need to check your firewall settings and ensure that there’s not a custom setting blocking access to Gmail.

Update Calendar Year

This is a bit of a strange one, but we’ve heard at least one user benefiting from this. Check your system’s date and calendar and make sure it’s correct. If not, set it to the current day and time, then reboot your PC and try accessing Gmail again.

Clear SSL State

If you’re using Internet Explorer 8+, try browsing to Tools > Internet Options > Content > and choose Clear SSL State. Restart your browser and hopefully Gmail will load correctly.

In most cases, upgrading your browser will solve the issue. If it doesn’t, try switching browsers. If that still doesn’t work, try shutting down your Firewall, Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, etc., temporarily, and see if that solves it.
