Cool Why can't I login to googlemail (gmail), but can read and write in trhunderbird?


I have 4 systems using various linux distros and 1 using windows 7. Since my service provider changed to a new server I have to wait forever for www.google.co.... after entering my login details when accessing the internet using mozilla or chrome under any of the linux distros. However using thunderbird I can receive and send mail. Using windows 7 there is no problem. I suspect the new server is not allowing a response from www.google.com... but how do I prove this or is there a different answer?

I had to buy a new router from my provider because the old one was not compatible with their new setup.

Guessing they're blocking SSL. Test by going to an SSL site like a bank.

I am using SSL in Thunderbird and I can login to my bank account ok. One other observation is that I have to use windows to make a post in this forum. Using Linux Mint Isadora I can logon to the forum but cannot make a post or quote - (like the waiting for google.com...) in my post
