No Gmail checkers/notifiers working
I used to use the Gmail Checker Windows Sidebar gadget, that stopped working, it says "Logged in!" in the settings with my account details, however it shows the new email of my father's account that is auto-logged in in IE8 (I am auto-logged in FF)
Then I tried Google Mail Checker (another sidebar gadget). that just says 0 new email where there is email in my account or my fathers.
Then I tried Gmail Manager 0.6 FF extension. That also says 0 new email, but if I right click it in the status bar, it tells me how many new emails i actually have.
what the effffff! i've also tried disabling "always use https" in gmail to no avail.
any help would be appreciated
EDIT: Gmail Notifier FF extension seems to work but I'm still curious as to why the other ones don't work. I use 2 monitors and keeping a gmail sidebar gadget on the other monitor is really useful...

Scott's GMail Alert. I use it, love it. It is highly configurable, and alerts me quite literally as soon as a new message hits my inbox. Plus, it is free, though you can register it for $3.00 to unlock multi gmal/rss/gcalendar accounts. I highly recommend this appAnd it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!
