Subject description: BIG problem with Yahoo
 

Mike, Oscar, or somebody: HELP!
I put 32-bit Tahr 6.0.6 on my friend's Dell D610 laptop, and the same Iron browser 58.0.3050.0 that I use.
She goes to yahoo.com, logs in, clicks mail, and is told to upgrade browser.
I've been unable to find a way for her to access Yahoo mail.

Please advise. Thank you very much.

Sheldon

Sheldon,

I don't have 6.0.6 to hand but I did a fresh boot of 6.0.5 and installed Iron .pet
I was able to sign in to Yahoo Mail without problems so I am unable to reproduce any issue I'm afraid.
Sometimes Yahoo Mail will present a page asking for something but usually it is just a case of clicking on the help link and then "Go To Mail" will let me in. That is the only thought that springs to mind. Maybe someone else has some ideas.

They said or it was said, they no longer support any other browsers/derivatives.

This fix seems to work for me.



search for "User-Agent Switcher for Chrome" extension.
Once installed it will let you spoof your browser so yahoo thinks you are using chrome or firefox.

I'm using one of the firefox listings provided on the extension.

Heres a list

http://www.useragentstring.com/pages/useragentstring.php?typ=Browser

you can edit the extention options to add whatever string you wish.

This only started a few months ago for me, there may be a quicker fix by now that I'm not aware of.
I found it amusing that you could not go back to classic mail, it just looped back to the same page and held you hostage. Shocked

Edit: I found this as well https://www.howtogeek.com/113439/how-to-change-your-browsers-user-agent-without-installing-any-extensions/

Haven't messed with the manual edit, knowing my luck it will fudge everything up.

(re Yahoo mail) Thank you, spiritwild! I will try it on her computer, and report back.
