    Gmail app faulty

    Sometimes there is no In box, on the gmail app of my phone
    System 10.0.0.190

    I have to restart the phone to get the In box back, the app will make emails but not read them
    Any clues on how to fix this?


    Thank you

    Is Google Play Services up to date?

    The actual G-Mail app does not need to be up to date, in my experience.

    But Google Play Services can be screwy if it is not.

    Yes, everything is up to date, no probs with any other app or the OS.
    very confusing.

    Ok, then perhaps a recent update is buggy.

    Try clearing all data from the G-Mail app (you will need to reset your settings within the app) and if that doesn't help try uninstalling the updates of G-Mail.
    (Once again, all settings within the app will need to be reset.)

    I am on a desktop computer and use Gmail.

    Firefox is really buggy right now and I am having to open my Gmail in Chrome to read it, as Fx is having major issues with it.

    Not sure if it is a Firefox issue, a Gmail issue, or both.

    At this point I would just use my browser.
    Although the app is more convenient, it is not working at present.

    I have long ago chosen to limit my apps to things that I cannot access with my browser.

    This saves a ton of space on my devices, and frees up loads of system resources as well.

    Even a cheap POS like mine is suddenly so much quicker and more able to multi-task.

    This seemed to work in Android

    Uninstalling Android web view updates from play store worked for me, now I can finally open Gmail and a bunch of apps that were not working.
