    Can't load Gmail in IE9

    On my main PC, when I try to open my gmail account in IE9 the whole IE9 window appears to "jiggle" or "vibrate". It looks like it's switching between two windows, one offset a little from the other. It's not recoverable. Sometimes I have to close IE and sometimes I have to End Task to get it to go away. Sometimes I have to reboot the system go get IE to behave again.

    I have IE9 'update version' 9.0.9 running on Windows 7 Home Premium v6.1 (Build7601 SP1). I have IE's Active-X filtering turned off.

    I followed the steps in a post on answers.microsoft.com “Can't load Gmail using IE9 any more”, including resetting IE9 and performing a clean boot, but the problem persists.

    When I started IE without addons I got the Gmail Loading screen (standard view) but no progress in the progress bar. A refresh didn’t help. In this case I am able to load the HTML view, but that view is missing some tools I use to manage my email.

    Any help appreciated! Thanks - Dave

    Hi Dave,
    your link seems to cover everything to try, except this, use another browser to access Gmail, copy/paste address into IE.

    I access my Gmail right from WLM 2012. This works fine.

    Hi Gold Lounger,
    I installed Firefox v15. It lets me access my Gmail account in standard view. I tired your suggestion but it didn't work. I uninstalled IE9 (uninstalled the Windows Update that added it). I tried accessing my Gmail account with IE8 but ran into the same trouble. I can stay with Firefox, but there's something wrong in my system that makes me uneasy.

    I am considering using Fred Langa's "Win7's no-reformat, nondestructive reinstall" from Windows Secrets Newsletter Issue 297 • 2011-07-14. Do you think it's a good idea?

    Ted, I don't have WLM 2012 set up, but thanks for the suggestion.

    - Dave

    Hi GL,

    Good idea! I ran sfc /scannow. It didn't find any file integrity violations, however. Hmm...

    I have a backup PC right behind me whose IE9 has no trouble getting me logged in to Gmail standard view. Any idea how I might check for differences? Yeah, I have lots more things installed on my working PC- but I did do the clean boot.

    You could try the IE9 reset. Goto Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, and click the Reset button at the bottom. Advisable to create a restore point first. This has solved a number of problems for me, but sometimes the only answer is to use a different browser for a particular program.
