    Well both Gmail Notifier and Gmail have been acting weird for me lately.

    Gmail Notifier will now occasionally announce a new message when there is not one. Ex. Sometimes the notifier will pop up and say I have a new message, when in fact the message being announced is an unread message that is in my inbox, that is a few days old.

    Gmail is acting the worse.

    In Safari mailto (e-mail links) no longer works. When I click on an e-mail link it starts to redirect to google, but then just sits on a page and says loading. I have to close the page, and copy the address manually.

    Also, quite frequently in gmail using Safari, gmail will "lock up". None of the links within Gmail will work, but Safari will still be running fine. Reloading gmail may fix the problem temporarily, but it will likely return soon.





    Anyone else having any of these issues?

    Same problems here. It's pretty frustrating. Firefox isn't having the "lock up" problems, so I'm switching to it for the time being.

    I've had problems with GMail in the past when they were in the process of making updates, and they went away after a week or so. Hopefully they're aware of the problem and working on them. Not sure if there's much else to do.

    What about the e-mail links?

    That has not worked for several weeks for me...

    The Gmail notifier always announces unread messages, even if they are millions of years old. I too am having the URL problem, I thought it was a craigslist problem. I suspect that you should see if there is an update to the plugin or see if you can find an older, working, version.

    I've never had no problems with gmail and I just installed the notifier. I'm running Tiger 10.4.11 and I also use Firefox and not Safari. I really missed the notifier since I've been using it XP for a few years. Was cool when I just saw it was available for Mac.

    Google Notifier Mac keeps starting VMWARE Fusion, how to disable

    Just replaced Parallels with VMWARE Fusion (sorry if wrong thread)
    VM works great, no problem, except now in Mac when I hit the notifier to go to my Gmail inbox (safari) on Mac side, VMWARE starts instead(!) I tried disabling sharing , etc. but still does it. Anyone know what the issue could be?

    Thanks

    You really should have started a new thread as you'll get more responses. Try deleting your Gmail notifier app and reinstall it.
