Finally, no more Gmail blank page

For months, I couldn't use Gmail on my PowerBook. Instead of my INBOX, a blank page would load in Firefox 2 and Safari 2. Clearing cache and related cookies made no difference. Here's what it looked like:

My workaround had been to use a second computer but it's inconvenient. Then Gmail IMAP came along and at least I could use Mail.app. But Gmail IMAP hasn't been very reliable so it would be nice to be able to use the web version from time to time.

Then when Gmail 2.0 came out, the blank page problem was gone from Firefox, but Safari still showed constant "Loading...".

Today, I installed the OS X 10.4.11 update, which includes Safari 3, and now it's usable with Gmail again.
