For several weeks, I have been getting error after error trying to use Gmail in Firefox 14.0, IE 8.X, and Google Chrome browser windows. That would make you think the common denominator was either the OS or the Bionic. Or, Google. I have investigated & updated (even that which was ALREADY) everything, to no avail. I have confirmed configs till I am seeing double. I see lots of hits in search for similar error codes (#502), but damned little since 2010 that is relevant. (Who controls the Google search results? Hmmmm.....) I've tried to exchange details in Google Chrome forums and have met with snide, smart-aXXed responses from supPosedly qualified Google reps. So, am I the only one having this issue? I see nothing here to indicate that others are. If so, what do you suggest I check? Is it PdaNet? My WinXP32 SP3, completely updated, is working great! In all aspects. I have uninstalled Google Chrome and Earth (I can use Bing, if necessary). As a last resort, I installed Chrome last week because the constant popup ASSURED me it is a FASTER browser, right? Right! When there is no hangup. Take note, the Google apps/browser windows were the ONLY ones hanging. At the same time they were hanging, all other browser tabs/windows and even MS Outlook, functioned JUST PHREAKING FINE! Ok, David, take three deep breaths and a hit on the inhalor................Ok, my fingers now feel like they are getting oxygen, again. Ahhhhh.....yes. What say you?
