So someone in Israel with a Gmail account called you from it?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Anyone else having trouble in firefox? I got it to work, but only in chrome

Strangest thing. I thought it was firefox at first. It works in my wife's account, but not in mine...i tried hers in FF and IE. Mine wont work in either...anyone else having trouble?

I'm assuming you mean there's no option for it?  Because we have a report that it does work from Israel.
When you signed up for Gmail did you choose Canada or US?

After reading around about it, it seems gmail has not released it to every gmail account yet. All of gmail accounts (except my main one, of course) has it already.

I was never able to get it to work on any accounts on any browser here in Israel. One solution may be hotspot shield.

What browser?
My secondary account and wife's account work in all browsers. Mine does not work in any browser.

I found some more details here: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/gmail/thread?tid=206e1af8d16ee5fe&hl=en

To quote a google employee there: "We're rolling out this new feature to Gmail account in the US today and over the next couple of days, so not all accounts will have this immediately"
