To fix this do the following:

– delete Gmail application
- Many of our extensions depend that email messages are in HTML (Gmail Email Templates, Email Tracker, HTML Editor for Gmail, etc.) so you need to ensure that your Gmail is not sending in plain-text mode. To switch from plain text to rich text formatting in Gmail, open up a new compose window, click on the down arrow in the Compose toolbar, and uncheck “Plain Text Mode”. The short video on how to check that is here.
- Clear and refresh cached images and files in Chrome browser and restart the browser. Please check How to refresh cached images and files in Chrome support note on how to clear and refresh cached images and files.
- If clearing cache does not help, then try clearing Chrome cookies and restart it. Please check How to reset cookies, clear and refresh cache in Chrome support note on how to clear browser cookies.
