Why would google calendar be running slow and sometimes giving me a page that says "Server Error", "Google Calendar is temporarily unavailable."?

I'm in FF

weikelbob - if it is only your Google Calendar web page that is giving you this error, then it is a problem with Google's servers and something they will have to fix on their side.

Have you tried it on another browser (Chrome, Internet Explorer) to make sure it is not a Firefox problem?

I would also reboot my system just to make sure you aren't running out of resources on your computer.

However, often a server error is not something that you can resolve, and this will be something Google has to resolve.

Also - you can clear your browser cache by holding down the "Shift" button on your keyboard, and at the same time hitting the refresh button on your browser.

Hope these tips help.

I'm on a mac.

I'll try rebooting again. Google calendar acts slow an weird many times a day. Does anyone else have this problem?

I use a Mac powerbook and run Google Chrome as my main browser.  I also use google calendar and update it about once a day and have not had the "server error" issue.
Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

It could be Google, could also be your connection (route) to Google.

Have you tried running a traceroute to see if any hop gets hung up?

Our firm uses IE8 browser and we have Google Apps and we get some errors.  Most of Googles outstanding issues tell you to try Google's Chrome browser to see if it helps.  The answers above support this.
