Problem acsessing Gmail with firefox and opera on 10.1

when i try to check my gmail account using 10.1 with kde using either firefox or opera i get the following errors:

Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at
    *   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

    *   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

    *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
          that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
and in opera
Network problem

You tried to access the address, which is currently unavailable. Please make sure that the Web address (URL) is correctly spelled and punctuated, then try reloading the page.
Make sure your Internet connection is active and check whether other applications that rely on the same connection are working.
Check that the setup of any Internet security software is correct and does not interfere with ordinary Web browsing.
If you are behind a firewall on a Local Area Network and think this may be causing problems, talk to your systems administrator.
Try pressing the F12 key on your keyboard and disabling proxy servers, unless you know that you are required to use a proxy to connect to the Internet. Reload the page.
Need help?
Open the Opera Help.

Clear all your cookies. Assuming that your connection does work with other websites, you may have rejected cookies in the past, which Gmail may need in order to operate normally.

Along the same line,s also clear your Firefox cache
