This must really be something specific with your system, because I was
able to open the gmail page without problems.

What happens if you try

w3m http://gmail.google.com

Will it work, if you put a "http" in front of the address?

You could also look in your home directory for a .w3m directory and delete
it just to make sure that there is no local broken configuration.

BTW.: I am using Debian Stretch with the stretch backports repo enabled.
The installed w3m version is 0.5.3-34+deb9u1.
