Ouch! Firefox 3 Doesn't Work With Gmail

Despite some who claim otherwise, the new Firefox 3 just doesn't work "as well" with Gmail as Firefox 2. I get Gmail errors over and over, "Oops there's been an error... retrying". My solution so far is just to use IE for Gmail (works fine) until it's fixed, because it's not trivial to have Firefox 2 and 3 installed on the same machine.

(Turns out this is only true on my Vista machine, not my XP box)

(OK, I fixed it. How? I turned off all my addons, and then...oddly, i turned them all back on again. This helped. My guess is there must be a storage format difference or something that gets fixed when you do that.)
