gmail account trouble
« on: December 17, 2019, 08:20:25 PM »
Hi all.

I'm having trouble logging in with Chrome to my gmail account.

I have no trouble if I use explorer, but Chrome won't let me in.

I have also tried using the new stupid "edge" my computer has, but that comes up with an error message.
I followed the usual delete cache, sign in sign out, restart etc etc. shy of my .410 shotgun, what else can I do???

(PS, explorer is slower than John Farnham retiring)
 ??? ??? ???

No error - just blank screen?
Chrome is horrible.
 

Edit you say you tried clearing cache - was that Edge or Chrome?
if not chrome, try this
try going to address bar and typing in
chrome://history

Then CLEAR BROWSING DATA.
Then ADVANCED
Then drop down menu - clear all TIME
Lastly tick all the boxes. (maybe not passwords, but I usually do)

See how that goes

I've just logged into gmail on Chrome a few minutes ago OK, so can't be an across the board issue ???

Chrome is horrible.

really?  compared to what... ?

i have been trialling a browser called Brave...

https://brave.com/


maybe try this browser and see what the result is... they both use the Chromium rendering engine as their base...

if it works in Brave, but not Chrome, then it might be an extension not playing the game?

also, make sure your Chrome install is up to date...

can't say i'd go back to ie11... :)

for me FF and chrome are much the same...

but, each to their own... there is no perfect browser, that's why we have a few choices...  ;D

We have so many internal and external sites at work that IE will not even think about working on that we are just about to change our default browser to Chrome. Chrome has very little issues as far as we are concerned. We have FF as a third option if either of the above two don't work.

Thanks for the replies all.

I am still having trouble, but have just resorting to using IE till I can work out what is wrong.
Holidays coming up so I'll care about it later.

Hope you all have a safe and Merry Christmas.
