Not a problem functionally - it's just weird seeing everything upside down for a second!

    try some basic troubleshooting things  :  
 
press F5 to refresh gmail  
 
if still no good :   log out of gmail. Clear your browser's cache and cookies  >> https://gmail-issues.blogspot.co.za/2017/08/clearing-cache.html
 
update your browser to the latest version. close and re launch your browser. log into gmail here    https://mail.google.com  
 
if still no good :   Try disabling any browser extensions and starting the browser again ( also try incognito / private browsing / safe mode / reset firefox )
 
Try starting GMail without any labs you might have enabled (use https://mail.google.com/mail/?labs=0 to do that)
 
Temporarily disable your anti virus  ( and firewall )
 
Try another browser to see if the behaviour persists
 
Try another computer to see if the behaviour persists
 
Try another internet provider
 
If you use a router try bypass it and 'go direct to the wall'
 

some people have even reported that SHUTTING DOWN   their pc ( NOT just restarting it ) or changing their themes fixes some issues , and also try changing your zoom levels :   hold down control and press + a few times to enlarge hold down control and press - ( minus )   a few times to reduce hold down control and press zero to reset ( on a Mac use Cmd instead of Ctrl )
 
 
 
  turning off/on  hardware acceleration in your browser may also help  >> http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/53337/disable-hardware-acceleration-in-mozilla-firefox-chrome-and-internet-explorer/  
 
 
  if still no good run a full antivirus scan . and the following  tools can be used to try and clean a computer infected with adware/malware that may not be cleaned by the typical anti-virus program.  
 
LavaSoft Ad-Aware - http://www.lavasoftusa.com/
 
 
 

final option  - backup your bookmarks and uninstall the browser and download a fresh copy

Thanks!  I am sure one of the steps you mention may make a difference, but this is a real scattershot approach!   I was hoping someone who knows how Gmail works would have an answer - e.g. is there a Gmail setting that specifies orientation?  Perhaps somewhere in language support...?  TIA

I don't think I've ever seen a Windows app start off upside down before!  Oh well!   Thanks anyway! Maybe it will go away with a later release of some of the software I use!
