when accessing gmail via the browser, buttons like logout (bottom left), send (bottom right), reply (bottom of email editor on the left) do not seem to respond. I keep clicking them but they just don't do anything. If I hold my finger down, the o/s thinks I'm trying to select text from the button.
Can this be fixed?

I found out that this happened. On the left were your messages are, scroll down to the bottom of them. You will see basic html click it. It seems their site only works correctly this way. Try this it could help.

Good tip, but it would be nice if the Playbook could render the tablet version of gmail without having to revert to html. I think it is a broader problem because I had a similar problem when trying to submit a user review on the staples.com website. The URLs don't work or appear to work but don't actually do anything.
Oddly, in gmail it is worse, a number of times I have clicked "send" repeatedly and then I see a "your message has been sent" popup in the lower left. Only the message just disappears and is not actually sent (I double checked on gmail via my desktop).

I have the same issue and more. I sent a lot of emails from my Playbook in gmail and no one I sent them to got them. So I looked in my sent box on my pc and the messages are not listed as sent so I do not think they ever got sent. Also what ever you do in gmail on the Playbook it does not sync if your gmail account.

freeyo, thanks for the tip!
Last week, I forgot the drill of switching over to basic html and noticed that the default mobile interface is now usable. Maybe gmail devs did some tweaks?
I've been using the default interface since and things have been ok. Only slowed down a bit when i was scrolling through a long thread with lots of images.

What I did was I opened Gmail switched to basic and added that page to my home screen. Everytime I open it now it opens basic mode no need to switch every time now.
