Like a few of my previous posts, today’s post is a direct result of my girlfriend using my computer. After she’d been using it to check her email and so on, I noticed that, even though my account was logged into GMail notifier, or even if it wasn’t logged in at all, it’d notify me of email that patently belonged in her inbox, and indeed was not existent in my inbox.
I was puzzled. I use Firefox as my default web browser, and so does my girlfriend, usually. Turns out she hadn’t been the day in question, instead she’d been using Internet Explorer.
Luckily, this is a simple problem to resolve, and here’s how:
- Open Internet Explorer
- Go to Tools > Internet Options
- Click Delete files
It turns out that GMail Notifier ties into Internet Explorer, using cookies.
