Help gmail webmail not working on XP

mme, Mar 25, 1:47am
Everything else is working - just not gmail.

Have tried downloading Chrome & the latest IE but it's not supported.

Eek

Background

It's an old Dell ( Dinosaur) which I only use to print & scan items (scanned stuff is all on the hard drive of the Dinosaur which I attach to emails when required).

It only the gmail webmail that won't work! As of about a week or 2 ago.

Is there a way round it. Like using another email?

You could try setting up a forwarding address in gmail to forward all incoming mail to another webmail provider that does work.

Did you install Chrome, and set it to be your default browser? Or is the current version of Chrome the one that's no longer supported for XP?

If so, try an older version of Chrome, or Firefox.

Yeah I set it to be my default browser but it was probably the latest chrome.

Have you got a link to an older version I can try tx

Thank You!

I'm heading now ( to watch the cricket) but will wind up the Dinosaur later & give it go!

I'm guessing it's the Popular Version Aug 7, 2011?

I downloaded, no joy with gmail yet but have shut the dinosaur down & I'll restart it soon. See if that makes a difference.

The latest Firefox works on XP.

What do you mean by 'doesn't work'?

Any error message? A blank page? Something else?

mme, Mar 25, 8:53am
Can I have link to that thanks

I've never used Firefox but I hear it's good.

mme, Mar 25, 8:58am

This is a trimmed fully functional version of the latest FireFox.
I use this on XP along with .
Chrome Version 35.0.1916.114
Firefox 36.0.4
PaleMoon 25.3.0.

No problems with accessing Gmail on any of those

Thanks to all Computer Angels here.

I got gmail up late last night by downloading the link r.g.nixon posted!

The Dinosaur is running Firefox :)

Hallelujah to that!
