Gmail offline on Firefox 4.0.1: "Offline Mail is not supported by your browser"

by Nicolas Raoul   Last Updated March 13, 2018 07:02 AM

I am using Ubuntu 11.04 and its default browser Firefox 4.0.1.
A pretty standard configuration, so I am surprised that Gmail offline cannot be configured and tells me:

Offline Mail is not supported by your browser

Is it really the case? Or is there something I can do to be able to use Gmail Offline?

Actually Gmail Offline is migrating from Gears to HTML5 so it's not working these days. You have to wait until Chrome12 to get the new updated Offline Service.

Offline GMail uses Google Gears which isn't available for Mozilla Firefox 4+, Internet Explorer 9+, and Google Chrome on Mac or Linux.

Offline Gmail is now available for Ubuntu as an app through the Chrome Web Store:
