- 2006-01-09 -- It took me forever to realize that Gmail does indeed have a function to archive something when I'm looking at it in my inbox. They removed it from the dropdown function and had it as a button that was staring me in the face. It's still bad design to do that.. ugh!

So they alternately were and were not providing the "old version".
Whoa, one year since my previous note.
Firefox 3 ∞

Ok, so GMail and Firefox3 don't work together at all.
I used to get infinitely hanging messages, but it used to work with the "old version". That has now been completely removed and now the GMail website does not load anymore.
Instead, one is forced to use the "basic view", which sucks.
Removing a label make the messages vanish ∞
Steps to reproduce:
- Create a new label
- Send a message to yourself
- When the message is received, flag it with the label you made and then archive it
- Edit your list of labels
Delete the label
Now find your message. It's gone.
- Randomly try to search for the missing messages. Good luck if you have tens of thousands of messages and don't know what to search for.
- Download all your mail using pop3 access. Good luck finding the message. But at least you've got it somewhere.
GMail should implement an "archived" label of some kind.
3 seems to be the only reasonable solution.
k eventually hangs the interface ∞
- View a pagefull of starred messages
- View the last one
Un-star it, use
kto move to the last one.
Continue this process until you get to the last item..
You are kicked out of the email-view (which is normal) except the GMail interface has crashed and you cannot select anything. This is most likely because of the
> symbol which appears to the left of the most recently-visited item. It's stick one line above the topmost item.
