Quick update

Sunday, 25 June 2017

Hi all, sorry for the lack of update and response to your problems. Sometimes life's just caught up and you don't have any time to work on personal projects. This is not an excuse for me not to continue this project. But you'll have to understand that I can only work on my projects whenever I can.

I'm using my Gmail checker daily and wouldn't survive without it myself so I understand your frustration. All of my Google for domain accounts are broken as well. But strangely, my very old main account -- think of a time when Gmail required you to have an invite to sign up -- is working fine. There are many variables going on with Gmail web interfaces nowadays so fixing things isn't as simple as you may appreciate.

I'll keep you updated in the coming days on my progress with this issue. Thanks again for sticking around!

  2. Gmail checker v2.6.6 stopped working for my second gmail account. So I uninstalled the addon, cleared login cookies, reinstalled. Now it's not working for my first or second account. Yes, passwords are correct, but it keeps saying "Failed to login" Not using 2 step, so that isn't the problem

  5. This is the best GMail solution for Firefox, bar none...

    Many (I have 8 accounts) of them work, but a couple seem to have stopped working recently, same issue as above.

    If I restore my complete Firefox profile (from a backup I made in mid May), they work again - temporarily. I think some change has been made at the Gmail end, once again.

    I'm really looking forward to an update to GMail Checker. I do feel for the devs of such apps though - it's a constant game of whack-a-mole with Google and their seemingly ever-changing GMail login.

    Good luck!

  8. Glad to see you're still around Trinh. Thanks for the constant updates. Can't believe your add-on has been around since 2006! You're a true veteran at this. Whether or not your add-on gets updated you have my thanks for making firefox and gmail a lot better to use.
