GmailChecker problem

Sunday, 30 March 2014

Thanks everyone for your reports on the problem with GmailChecker. I'm looking into it at the moment. Will update once I've confirmed the cause.

Update 25/5/2014:

Okay, first, for anyone who sent me the bug reports, thank you. I do look through them.

Second, for anyone who 'demands' a fix, have a look at yourself and learn to behave in public. I do not owe you anything. The extension is a personal project that I do in my spare time which I really lack now. If it suits your needs, great. If not, sorry then. The more you demand me to do anything, the less likely I do it.

I've been extremely busy with my daily work. I guess you've been as well. So a little consideration wouldn't hurt, would it?

  1. thanks, now it's working again!
    now I'm intrigued by it, there's no extension update but it's working, yesterday your site was down and so did the extension, does this mean the extension need to access your site to get it to work?

  2. That's weird.

    In my office it is still not working, but at home it has never failed to work. At least that I have noticed since I don't use my home PC daily.

  3. I have similar (or the same) problem. Log-in fails on my computer at office, and is successful at one at home. Both computer runs same version of Ubuntu (Linux) with same version of Firefox (of course, same version of GmailChecker). I am pleased to help solving the problem by sending my log.

  4. FYI: If he hasn't updated the extension then whatever is happening on your end is between Gmail and v2.6.3 of the extension. An update with no download is simply not possible.

  5. HURRAY, I hope you will find the cause :)

  6. For what it's worth, the extension was working in v27 just fine, but when Firefox upgraded to v28 on Sunday, that's when it stopped working.
    by Daggertrout on Tuesday, 1 April 2014, 02:17 pm #
  7. That isn't correct Daggertrout. Reports of it not working have been flooding in since March 25th, five days prior to the Firefox upgrade on Sunday. You can verify this in the previous new post comments on this website.
    by Marques on Tuesday, 1 April 2014, 04:19 pm #
  8. Yep, I got similar experiences. It works fine on my work's network but not at home. They're different ISPs, of course. I'm still investogating.

  9. was working for a few days and just went down at around 5:20PM. Firefox froze and when it restarted, it kept asking for login info. This had been happening a lot after the FF28 update.
    by KR on Thursday, 3 April 2014, 01:27 am #
  10. @Marques I didn't have any problems with it until Sunday.

    Also, it's still working fine on my laptop running Firefox 21.0 with Gmail checker 2.6.1
    by Daggertrout on Thursday, 3 April 2014, 05:56 pm #
  11. I'm running FF 26.0. Gmail Checker stopped working last week. However, I decided to remove the latest version and install v2.6.1 and it's working. I wish I'd done it sooner.

    You don't fully realize the value of something until you can no longer use it. Thank you Trinh for this useful add-on. I can't live without it.
    by Kayla on Thursday, 3 April 2014, 07:12 pm #
  12. I just downgraded to 2.6.2 and it works just fine. Thanks for the idea, Kayla!

    I'm running FF 28.0
    by Alex on Friday, 4 April 2014, 03:05 pm #
  13. Kayla, you've saved my life.

    I owe you one :D

  14. Version 2.6.1 works fine! thnaks

    thanks for this great add-on
    by clamatac on Monday, 7 April 2014, 06:17 pm #
  19. Just download older version 2.6.2. It works!
    by src on Tuesday, 8 April 2014, 02:15 pm #
  20. I've tried rolling back to both versions 2.6.1 and 2.6.2 and neither one works for me. Oddly enough, I don't remember having any issues with Gmail Checker on my work computer (which I think is running 2.6.3 as well) -- it's only on my home computer. Both computers are running FF 28.0.

  21. the authentication failure message: not now worked fine before
    by Alejandro Leon on Wednesday, 9 April 2014, 03:42 am #
  22. Shutdown my computer for the first time in weeks. Disconnected my modem for 5 hours. When I turned it all back on, GMChecker "failed to authenticate."

    Was running with FF28 on a Win7. BTW, Win7 had an update earlier in the day.
    by Budalla on Wednesday, 9 April 2014, 04:22 am #
  23. Yesterday update Windows, now Gmail-Checker don't working ... Please help ..
    by Claudia on Wednesday, 9 April 2014, 08:56 am #
  24. Same problem as Claudia. Yesterday it worked fine, today the message "failed to login"
    by Jan on Wednesday, 9 April 2014, 10:21 am #
  25. FF28 with 2.6.3 on Win7 Pro. Windows updates disabled. Everything worked yesterday as of this morning am getting "Failed to authenticate" on all of my 32 Gmail accounts.
    by Geekster on Wednesday, 9 April 2014, 01:38 pm #
  26. Sorry I was getting "FAILED TO LOGIN" not authenticate.
    by Geekster on Wednesday, 9 April 2014, 03:12 pm #
  27. For FFv21
    2.6.3 does not work for either, gmail or apps;
    2.6.2 works for gmail, not apps;
    2.6.1 works for gmail, not apps.
    Many thanks, awesome add-on!
    :)

  28. Can not log in any gmail account from any computer using Firefox and Gmail Checker 2.6.3
    by george on Wednesday, 9 April 2014, 06:05 pm #
  29. I have used this gmail checker forever... Please get it fixed as all though others out there suck. Thanks Dev.

    P.S, my problem began 2 days ago.
    by sTevyHD on Wednesday, 9 April 2014, 06:10 pm #
  30. This started about 3 days ago, all my Gmail login window accounts pop up as if the incorrect user/pwd is there. Reentering causes all the login windows to pop up again. Cannot get log file while the login windows are there and when closed the log file box is empty. Help, please fix as this is the best one out there for Firefox. Using Gmail Checker 2.6.3 in Firefox v28.
    by PMSingGMailCheckerDown on Wednesday, 9 April 2014, 06:30 pm #
  31. For me the problem started 3 hours ago, can't login in any of my 25 Gmail accounts. Trying to check my mail manually is a nightmare. :(
    by Taxidermista on Wednesday, 9 April 2014, 06:50 pm #
  32. I'm running Firefox 28 on Windows 7 and rolling Gmail Checker back from 2.6.3 to 2.6.2 (and then shutting off automatic updates) worked for me.
    by Zundfolge on Wednesday, 9 April 2014, 07:02 pm #
  33. Just as the other posts mention, none of my email inboxes are refreshing. Last night, it was fine. But I woke up this morning and it wouldn't work.
    by Jay on Wednesday, 9 April 2014, 11:49 pm #
  34. I'm using the latest version of FF for Mac and Gmail Checker stopped working yesterday after I disabled all my apps (in the hopes of trying to stop FF from freezing) and when I enabled Gmail Checker later it won't login. PLEASE FIX!

    by Geekster on Thursday, 10 April 2014, 02:22 pm #
  37. Two machines at home. Same version of Win7, same version of Firefox, both Gmail Checker 2.6.3

    One stopped working, the other is fine. That suggests a Windows Update is to blame that one has not received yet. Maybe.

  41. Tested on seven machines with Windows 7 and 8.1 SP1 on several internet accounts from different internet providers . All with Gmail Checker 2.6.3

    All stopped working.
    by frantab on Thursday, 10 April 2014, 06:41 pm #
  42. Has anyone found a good alternative? It doesn't look like this one will be fixed anytime soon and I need something.

  43. 2.6.2 & 2.6.1 are working fine so give the developer some time. This the best Gmail add on I have used so far.
    by tal on Friday, 11 April 2014, 12:52 am #
  44. 2.6.2 is working great, Thanks tal for the tip.
    by sTevyHD on Friday, 11 April 2014, 01:32 am #
  45. Everything was fine with the latest version on my Mac 10.9 until I had to disable my plugins and restart FF. Then I downgraded the app and everything worked fine until I had to restart my computer and now even the downgraded version no longer works.

    The message to take from this is...

    DO NOT DISABLE THE GMAIL CHECKER ADDON AND THEN ENABLE IT AND/OR DO NOT TURN OFF OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER!!!!!
    by Steve on Friday, 11 April 2014, 03:38 am #
  46. Seems like it has to be coincidence, but I installed the latest Malicious Software Removal Tool from Microsoft (KB890830 for Win7) and restarted Firefox. Gmail Checker logins stopped working.
    by Mike on Friday, 11 April 2014, 04:37 am #
  47. 2.62 is working fine for me. All versions for Firefox are available at:

  49. Unfortunately version 2.6.3 has stopped working for me two days ago. I use two step authorization, and can't login (FF 28, win7 x64).

    Previous versions is the same, not working.

    Does anyone know where can I delete every file belongs to this extension? Because even I remove the extension, after restart and reinstall, it keeps my previous settings and account informations.
    by dbius on Friday, 11 April 2014, 09:10 pm #
  50. i eliminate the version 2.6.3 restart firefox, instaled 2.6.2 and now it works. I didnt lost the setttings so all is fine
    by angelitto on Friday, 11 April 2014, 10:57 pm #
  51. Is this abandonware now? 2.6.3 seems to have been broken for weeks now. 2.6.1 works okay but it updates eventually and I have to then go back and reinstall 2.6.1 again. I know I can turn updates off totally but I'd hate to do so for a SINGLE add-on being broken.
    by Spiffy on Saturday, 12 April 2014, 02:30 am #
  52. I have just reverted to 2.6.2, and it works just fine. If you are in difficulty, then I suggest you do the same.
    by Ronski on Saturday, 12 April 2014, 09:43 am #
  53. I've tried again previous versions with ff28 without success.

    In debug windows I found these errors if it means something to developer, perhaps it helps a bit to trace the login problem:

  57. It stopped working a week or so ago, three days ago I reverted back to 2.6.2 and it worked, until last night it stopped working all together. Is a fix being worked on or do I need to look for a new program?

  61. Issues started about 2 weeks ago. Weirdly, it all works fine from my work connection, but as soon as I go home, it stops working - get the login errors like everyone else.
    by Tim Spence on Tuesday, 15 April 2014, 10:49 am #
  62. Rolled back to 2.6.2 and with the exception of some password problems which were easily fixed by removing some accounts and reentering them, all is working OK now.
    by Geekster on Tuesday, 15 April 2014, 12:05 pm #
  63. Clearly this is never getting fixed. If it was the programmer would have at least posted here on his OWN site about it being in progress. It's clear this extension has been abandoned, so I guess its time for us to all move onto another mail checker.
    by Spiffy on Thursday, 17 April 2014, 03:22 pm #
  64. Maybe the fault is related to adobe flash 13 update. I am just wondering, hogy but I havent got any problem, but today I restarted my notebook (it is always on anyway), and latest adobe flash intalled then gmail checker wont work anymore..
    by Balazs on Saturday, 19 April 2014, 12:45 am #
  65. @Spiffy You can turn auto updates off just for one addon. Also, if you want to move onto another mail checker just move (if you can find one better than this) rather than acting dismissive and huffy about something free. It's just been two weeks, geez.
    by Delena on Saturday, 19 April 2014, 01:10 am #

  72. It might be considered good form to provide your users with an update of your progress to-date, if only to show that this problem is still your priority. I know from personal experience that it is difficult to go back to software that one created maybe 2+ years ago, but...
    by Ronski on Wednesday, 23 April 2014, 12:11 am #
  73. Recently, my other computers which has been worked well with 2.6.3 became bad. No authentication and no mail checking. It is very strange why computer with normal operation tended to be bad.
    by Terakin on Wednesday, 23 April 2014, 01:42 am #
  74. What sucks is that previous versions don't work with 2-Step Auth. I do not intend to turn it off in my main account. Sadly there is no worthy alternative and the author seems to have abandoned it...
    by Mindtrapper on Wednesday, 23 April 2014, 01:59 am #
  75. It should work again if you downgrade from version 2.6.3 to 2.6.2

  82. This is a very frustrating problem. My 2.6.3 stopped working, so I downgraded to 2.6.2 and it worked fine. Then firefox upgraded my plugin back to the latest version and it still continued to work.

    My wife has the same computer as I do (cloned hd) but 2.6.3 stopped working and 2.6.2 isn't working for her either. Whats up with this gmail issue, grawr =(
    by Marques on Thursday, 24 April 2014, 02:17 am #
  83. OK Lesson Learned everyone!
    @Marques, yes mine reverted to the newest version as well because of MY ADD-ON SETTINGS to AUTOMATICALLY UPDATE to the latest version.
    So I had to go to TOOLS>ADDONS>Gmail Checker and TURN OFF the automatic Update to latest version
    then do the 2.6.2 DOWNGRADE again and there it is, WE HAVE WORKING GMAIL CHECKER AGAIN!!!
    by DavidnDolores on Thursday, 24 April 2014, 12:40 pm #
  84. Thanks for the suggestion, everyone. Going back to 2.6.2 fixes my regular accounts, but the ones with 2-step verification still do not work :(

    When I logged into my account manually, I noticed that Google started asking for phone # verification. Wonder if this affected the behavior of GMail Checker itself.

    Hope the developer has time to fix this. I really like and depend on GMail Checker. Thanks!
    by T Tran on Friday, 25 April 2014, 08:36 am #
  85. As is mentioned elsewhere, GMail Checker WILL function correctly IF version is at 2.6.2 ...AND then do the following: go to Firefox "Add-ons Manager", click on the "gear" icon and ensure that "check for updates" is NOT selected / ticked.
    And that's it!
    As for the future, your guess is as good as mine.

    I wonder whether it is something at Gmail's end. I tried logging in to each account manually but Gmail no longer allows me to. Logging out as one address used to bring up the log in box where you could enter a different email address and PW, but now it goes back to the login it just used and the only option is to *add* another account to that one, i.e. to link them all together under one main account.

    Looked online and found a tech website suggesting that the only way to stop Gmail doing this is to use different browsers for each Gmail account! Not feasible if you have more Gmail identities than browsers.

  90. Thanks all - rollback worked, auto-update turned off.

  92. FF29 and Gmail Checker 2.6.2 works fine only for Gmail not for Google Apps.

  93. Same thing for FF28
    FF28 and Gmail Checker 2.6.2 works fine only for Gmail not for Google Apps.

  94. It's over a month since the problem was first reported. It's time for an update to be made. Is there an update in the works or not?
    by Jake on Thursday, 1 May 2014, 07:33 pm #
  95. I agree its been over a month. I gave up waiting and switched to Gmail Notifier (restartless) you can get it here:

    http://add0n.com/gmail-notifier.html

    or

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gmail-notifier-restartless/

  96. I installed Gmail Notifier yesterday and uninstalled it yesterday. It stopped integrating additional accounts after successfully adding 4 accounts.

    So, I removed Gmail Checker completely, restarted Firefox then added GmailChecker 2.62 again and added the new accounts. It's working well now.

    I hope this is updated because this is a temporary solution. I haven't upgraded FF yet but it might not work later so I will go with Gmail Notifier if it doesn't.

  97. DON'T CLOSE YOUR BROWSER OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER!

    This was a great little app that is now EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING.

    Since you REFUSE to fix this can you at least tweak it so it will NOT auto-update if we close our browser please? That way we can install an older version that works and it won't automatically update to the newer version that does NOT work. And yes, I did check the settings so it won't auto update but it reverts to "Default" which does auto update.

  98. That's strange Steve. I restart my browser at least twenty times a day and this never happens with add-ons for me.
    by Jake on Sunday, 4 May 2014, 01:59 am #
  99. This is strange. My work PC started failing a couple of weeks ago. If I remember correctly after I restarted following some windows updates.
    My home PC running 7 x64 and where I use waterfox 28 had no issues until today - following me installing some windows updates.....
    Latest one installed is KB2952664 so I shall uninstall it and restart again and see what happens....

  100. Steve: There are instructions above for disabling auto update.
    by Martin on Tuesday, 6 May 2014, 01:31 pm #
  101. This used to work so well... I hope it will be fixed; the @gmail accounts are working allright with 2.62 but I also have a couple of adress with my own domain (with GoogleApps).

    In the meantime I am using "Checker Plus for Gmail", works great but it is only available on Chrome
    by Stenbraek on Wednesday, 7 May 2014, 10:49 am #
  102. does not work with FF28. I use the latest version, but yesterday I have installed 2.62 version and it is also does not work. There is always the window with username and password.

  103. Having the same problem, W7 Ultimate x64, FF v29.0.1 (but now working since v28), I really hope you can fix this, I'm using this plugin since a long time, I'm very used to it, i hope i don't need to get another, thanks and great work!

  104. Had same issue with 2.6.3 starting about 10 days ago. Went back to previous version of Gmail checker 2.6.2 and it works fine. I tried 2.6.3 again several time but doesn't work. The Firefox version didn't seem to change anything for me, I had 28 and now 29 (in both cases, 2.6.3 wouldn't work anymore...)

  105. the problem is at gmail, I use 2 machines one with windows 7 (32) and FF 20.01 can use 2.62 ok 2.63 no

    XP machine with FF 16 same can use 2.62 but no 2.63

    the windows xp machine developed the problem about 10 days before the Win7

  106. forgot to mention NO windows or other relevant updates have been installed on either of my machines for over a year..I use Gmailchecker non-stop 24 hours a day on 30+ accounts

  107. how to disable update gmail checker 2.6.2

  109. This Project is stopped and will not developed any more. Please use other extensions. Sorry for inconvenience.
    by Tobias on Sunday, 18 May 2014, 09:45 am #
  110. Tobias, who said?? where is the developer? why he does not say that project is stopped??
    by elusive on Sunday, 18 May 2014, 09:57 am #
  111. Tobias, your name isn't Trinh Nguyen, the developer. I see nothing here or on the official add-on page that states the developer has discontinued this add-on including in the comments section.

    Trinh, it's very unfortunate you're not addressing this since it's two months since the problem arose.

    Fortunately, the downgrade option works to a point. There are other alternatives for multiple gmail accounts.
    by Jake on Tuesday, 20 May 2014, 09:31 pm #
  112. I am tired of waiting for a solution since a downgrade does not really work for me and the current version does not progress in any way. Is there someone who is able to tell me some good alternatives ?
    by Sebastian on Saturday, 24 May 2014, 07:29 am #
  113. Try the x-notifier

  114. Still, being an agoraphobic causes much stress and anxiety,
    to make matters worse this is compounded by a feeling of depression stemming from the lack of understanding of
    others and a feeling of total isolation. Another advantage is that many hospitals
    have set up study groups for online nursing students.
    Choose from a wide array of accredited courses instead of non-accredited degrees.

  115. Take your time to fix it, the previews 2 version are working fine so no need to rush. What I don't understand why Gmail Checker were removed from the add on website.
    by Tal on Sunday, 25 May 2014, 05:53 pm #
  116. Does anyone have link of the version of 2.6.1 or2.6.2 or some where to download...

  120. For all of the whiners,that think that Trinh Nguyen owes you something(for a free add-on),& are too lazy to look on his page,for older versions....here is the link.This is also for the nice people(there are many),on this thread,who might not have a lot of time to research.

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gmail-checker/versions/

    I downgraded to version 2.6.2,& it works fine for me,with FFv28,on XP,& Vista machines.
    by dizzeedudlee on Thursday, 29 May 2014, 06:47 pm #
  121. dizzeedudlee, do you really think that you're so smart? only now has this plugin again on addons.mozilla.org and it was deleted, and so people might not find it
    by bobo on Saturday, 31 May 2014, 10:06 am #
  122. Thanks for looking into it, Trhinh Nguyen. I really like the addon. Hope you can fix it.
    Take care
    by jah on Tuesday, 3 June 2014, 07:59 pm #
  123. Using 2.6.2 and everything has been working fine. Now today on all my accounts Gmail states
    it is having authentications problems a ask that I log in. Well using Gmail checker I see my mail and I am login but I just keep getting this stupid banner from Gmail at the top of the mail page. I am beginning to think Gmail does not want people using third party gmail programs. I am just as sure Trinh will eventually get this problem solved. I have been using his extension for years and it is still the best one for me and my 52 gmail accounts.
    by The Geekster on Wednesday, 4 June 2014, 01:49 pm #
  124. Dear Author, what happened to your addon? I can't find it at your profile at addons.mozilla.org. On notebook ver. 2.6.1 works perfectly and I would like to install it on other computers, but it seems to by deleted and undownloadable.
    by Asgie on Wednesday, 4 June 2014, 02:28 pm #
  125. Anyone needing the Gmail Checker 2.6.2 can get it at Planetgeek.net. It is on the left hand pane under the Get FireFox icon.
    by The Geekster on Wednesday, 4 June 2014, 05:04 pm #
  126. Gmail Checker 2.6.2 works fine on FF 29.0.1.:)
    2.6.3 not work. Hope you can fix it and update.:)
    Best Gmail add, I like it lot of years. Thank you!

  127. bobo -- The day I posted my comment,it was on Trinh's website.All someone had to do was go on their own add-ons page in Firefox,go to the Gmail checker,& hit "more",to find his website.It doesn't take a rocket scientist,to figure that out.I never claimed to be smarter than anyone.I actually just posted the link,so the lazy whiners & even the nice commenters could access it.If you took the time,to see all of the people complaining about their "entitlement" to get quick service for a free app;you would have understood why I made my original comment....but apparently you didn't.
    by dizzeedudlee on Saturday, 7 June 2014, 04:48 pm #
  128. I meant the link was on Trinh's website.

  131. To everyone who says older versions work fine: do you use 2-step verification?

    Don´t work, of course :)

  133. 2.6.2 stopped working for me a few days ago (google authentication issues). I think google has BLOCKED gmailchecker, otherwise i have no idea why.

  134. Feel sorry for anyone clicking bobo's links and getting that virus
    by poorbobo on Thursday, 19 June 2014, 09:27 am #
  135. poorbobo, which virus? you are so stupid if you do not see the author of the addon, by clicking my links there is Trinh Nguyen the author and he uploaded them.
    by bobo on Thursday, 19 June 2014, 11:42 am #
  136. switched to Gmail Notifier 0.4.4 and its excellent

    if i was the creator of this add-on and read the ignorant foul trash like above ..i would simply walk away from the add-on..

    I for one an externally grateful to the creator of this add-on as in the past its has saved me thousands of hours...what a sad excuse for a human

  139. Maybe you can add code to disallow rude people from using it mwhahaha
    by Bugbear on Monday, 23 June 2014, 07:29 pm #
  140. Please refund all the money that Amaltea spent on this software(what;they didn't actually spend money,because it's a free extension).Then you could get rid of them forever.It's rude people like this,who have this sense of entitlement,that have caused Trinh to actually walk away from this project,& remove it from Mozilla's add-ons.Here is some advice to you Amaltea;get a life & grow up;you whiny little cry-baby!!
    by dizzeedudlee on Tuesday, 24 June 2014, 04:29 pm #
  141. I agree with the above. ZIP IT Amaltea! It is assholes like you that expect free software to work like commercial software. If you don't like it then develop your own software! I for one am grateful that Trinh made this nice plugin. Blame Gmail if you want as they are the ones making the problems for this plugin NOT the author. Why don't you go to your Facebook page and then you can whine all you want. This page is for people who are trying to help Trinh figure out what is wrong. The last thing we need here is whining newbies! Please get yourself a life....

  142. Amaltea, shame on you !!
    by ClaudiaOnline on Sunday, 29 June 2014, 02:10 pm #
  143. Aaaand it's gone from the Mozilla add-ons page.

    Let's all have a minute of silence for assholes like Amaltea, you people now finally achieved it, the add-on is gone for good as it seems.
    GJ...

  144. Sigh. Won't you people ever realise that responding angrily to trolls is exactly what they want? The only way to get back at them is to ignore them. i.e. Continue as if they never said anything - Don't ever, ever respond.
    Nobody likes to be ignored, especially trolls. It's the best human pesticide the internet has to offer..!
