Google Accounts Interface All But Unusable

Google sent me an email to say I needed to renew payment details for a web domain. This used to be a quick process with a simple web form. But their system now displays half blank screens saying "Loading", followed by warnings from my web browser about unresponsive scripts and garbled forms where I can't tell what to enter where. After several attempts working my way through all this I finally managed to enter new billing details. Only then did I notice that I was being warned my domain will not be renewed on July 2 next year. Why was Google wanting me to urgently update details six months in advance? Is it because their interface is now so hard to use it may take six months to get it to work? ;-)
