    the weirdest, most annoy problem ever - pllllleease help!!
    firstly, i'm not at all sure i'm posting this in the right place, so please tell me if i'm not.

    the issue is this. i use gmail, in fact i rely on it, and i can't access my emails at the moment, although it seems i can log in...I can hear you all saying 'just troubleshoot this on the google website...but i have tried, and it doesn't work, literally there is no cure for this, so it must be related to my machine in some way...

    the problem is that i log in, ie enter username and password, and then the page just refreshes, showing me as logged in (the username appears in bold), but essentially asking for my password again (without any error message coming up to say it's incorrect (because it isn't incorrect, also i have more than one gmail account and the same thing happens with all of them) it just refreshes, again and again and again, never opening up the page with my emails.

    google's troubleshooting says clear your cache, which i've done and it does nothing. I also have this problem in every browser (firefox, opera, camino and safari)...yet i can access my inbox when logging in through the browser on my i am completely stumped.

    I am not a techie in any way, so i don't know whether it could be a firewall issue, because i'm not 100% sure what a firewall even is, but i've ****** around with a few internet settings turning it on and off, and nothing seems to work.

    I'm at my wits end, genuinely considering just buying a new mac, which i'd rather not do....if you need to know i'm using an old ish imac, the ones from 2007 time, and running 10.4.11.

    I would be so unbelievably happy with any suggestions for what to fact i'd track you down and buy you an ice cream.

    the right one for your version of osx and run the internet cleaning tools. My best guess
