The GotmailG widget is a completely useless piece of crap. I don't usually revert to using such strong language but it's entirely appropriate in this case. It's supposed to be a relatively simple widget that acts as a counter for unread messages in Gmail and allows you log in by clicking on it. I'm not sure how something so simple can be screwed up but mine worked for one day then never again. After the first day any custom setting like color kept reverting to the original. Though my login and password remained saved it never actually showed new messages and instead displayed an x or a dash all the time. Reloading didn't do anything. Perhaps Gmail changed some login protocols or code thagt interfered with the widget but regardless of whose fault it is, gMail or the widget's developers, it's completely and absolutely useless.
