Mercifully, these days updates to Gmail are rare – perhaps just once a year – but we’ve just been hit by a small one, and it’s stopped ActiveInbox loading properly.

Fortunately, thanks to Marcus and Dale, we were able to fix it up before the Gmail change hit most people 🙂

ActiveInbox 6.0.44 is the beast that’s fully restored to health.

  • In Chrome, it should auto update pronto. But if you want to prod it into immediate action, click the 3-dot menu in top right, click ‘More Tools’, then ‘Extensions’, check ‘Developer Mode’, then click ‘Update Extensions Now’. Then just refresh Gmail.
  • Firefox, painfully, requires a little approval by Mozilla. We’re currently in a queue, but they should get it through by tomorrow.
