Not only did I restart it the other day, I rebooted because OpenOffice
was flaky. There had been an update affecting Open Office and it would
not load until I restarted X. But this is even stranger because gmail
was working fine the Friday. I went to make a phone call yesterday and
gmail simply would not load. I just restarted Firefox and same symptom.
Everything else seems to be working fine in Firefox including iGoogle
with its gmail box. I've been removing some of my plugins but at this
point, no effect. Interesting that firefox on my Netbook (also 3.6.13
64-bit) works fine also.

I'm going to the Galley diner in a few minutes. What I might do is
reinstall firefox.
