gmail widget broken for Google Apps email addresses

The gmail widget now uses Oauth for the login. The login works but now the widget is totally useless and broken:

- If no mails are present, then the box is just empty
- There is no way to click on the title anymore to get to the mail account
- The links to the mails for Google Apps email addresses just leads to a 403 page

So basically for Google Apps accounts I can neither open the account through the mail links nor the title.

    It has now been 6 months, and the widget is still broken. Gmail, the most popular web-based email service in the world. Unbelievable.

    My personal gmail and yahoo mail accounts act this way. Is there a fix? Did they change the widget for the worse?!

    Yes, this just changed one day on both mine and my wife's computers. Now, if there is not an unread email, there is nothing there and no way to link into gmail.

    Same here with 5 gmails accounts. Impossible to have an overview of their contents, only the first selected is taken into account.

    Having the same issue for my "Gmail For Work" Acct.

    I have two gmail apps loaded - one is my personal acct and one is my work acct.

    The personal acct is working as expected.
