Skip to comments.Yahoo is blocking me from my email, unless I upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 (Vanity)
Posted on 03/17/2010 10:45:49 AM PDT by my_pointy_head_is_sharp
I refuse to let them force me into an upgrade that I don't want. Any ideas? Is this happening to other FReepers. Is there any way around it? I nearly killed my computer, trying to find a solution. I've already checked online, and can't find much help. Do I have no other choice but to upgrade to Internet Explorer 8?
Can you switch over to Firefox???
Firefox or Chrome.
Load Mozilla Firefox and use that for your default browser.
there is something like a “no thanks, go to my inbox” button
My Yahoo mail works fine in Firefox.
Here ya’ go.
I switched to Firefox a looooong time ago and love it.
It sounds like you are using Internet Explorer 6. If this is the case, you should most definitely upgrade. IE6 was written in 2001 and it has no place in the modern web at all. More and more websites are (thankfully and rightfully) refusing to support IE6 any longer.
Firefox or Google Chrome are also good alternatives.
Mozilla Firefox - You won’t miss IE one bit.
works with IE7.
Download Firefox. You can use it for getting your mail. I do not like how FF always wants to update itself.
I was using old Yahoo mail and I liked it. I made the mistake of click on new Yahoo mail which sucks.
Anyone know a good email that does not support libs. Yahoo, MSFT, Google, AOL are all lib lovers.
You should be using Firefox or Opera.
Explorer sucks, and it exposes you to more Ad and Spy ware.
You can download it for free.
Thank you again!!! < :D
Yahoo’s been misloading on my some off and on the last few days—and I use Firefox.
I was having the same problem with Facebook, so I switched to Firefox.
Yes, switch over to another company’s browser.
A number of companies (Adobe Flash, Google, and Yahoo) are abandoning all support for older IE browsers.
I’ve been utilizing IE8 since Beta. Experienced no problems.
