GMail Problems - No Standard View!

    My gmail has recently changed from Standard View to HTML Basic View - it seems to have changed of its own accord. And now I am unable to get the Standard View.
    The Standard View is far superior and I want it back.
    What has happened to my GMail appears to have happened to others also.
    Does anyone have a "fix" for this?

    Hi Benedict,

    Signe in,go into "Preferences" on the home page and there should be an option to switch from HTML to Advanced.I presume you are talking about Eir.Hpoe this helps.

    Log in as normal to it, then copy and paste this in to the tab :

    Help much appreciated - but haven't cracked it yet. Re BMC 58, don't know what Eir.Hpoe is!

    I'm using Windows 10 and wife running Windows 7 and same thing happened to her. Some bright spark at Windows HQ decided switching people from Standard View to Basic was a great idea - but he never asked us!

    Above suggestions gratefully received but don't seem to work.

    When I log on to GMail, the bottom of the page briefly shows Standard and HTML Basic. The Basic is in highlighted blue and the Standard doesn't respond to a click.

    I'm using Firefox - read on various sites that using different browser can allow a change back to Standard View - but it doesn't seem to.
