Gmail Notifier problems

Just noticed a problem/glitch/bug with Gmail Notifier. When clicking on the menubar and then "Compose Mail" it will begin a never ending cycle of opening up tabs in my internet browser. I use Firefox and have 10.5.8 installed.

Anyone else experience this?

Major problems this afternoon. The good news is that POP and IMAP seem to work fine.

Oh yeah. I wasn't posting about the Google server being down or whatever but the little app, Gmail Notifier. If I click on it(Compose Mail) in the menubar, it beings a non-stop action of opening tabs up in Firefox. I have to Command-Quit to get it to stop. Then load up FF with 50+ tabs open and close them all LOL.

But yeah Gmail is up and running again .

Did you... ever find an answer to this? Because here it is, four years later - and I'm experiencing the same problem and you appear to be the only other person on the Internet who it has happened to.

I don't know/remember as that was four years ago . I remember that happening but I'm sorry I do not remember what I did or if what I did fixed whatever issue I had.
