Try whether it is a problem with the DNS service.
217.12.8.76 = AFAIK the real address of yahoo.mail login entrance.

74.125.39.104 = www.l.google.com - which is a Gmail login entrance.
- try with the real number addresses.

Else:
Try to have a look into proxy entries in the about:config of the Firefox that works and compare it to K-Meleon's proxy entries in the about:config
To get there just type about:configto URL Bar and press Enter.

If you are using proxy, you have to set it up for different protocols namely HTTP, SSL, FTP, Gopher etc. or check the option "use the same proxy for all protocols"

Guenter,

Disrupted's new Auto Switcher (User agent management) handles Yahoo just fine. It seems (to me) that Yahoo expects to see either IE or FF and if it doesn't get the user agent string it desires, it fails in multiple ways. One way is that if you log in to the so-called classic email at Yahoo, when you try and mark email messages for deletion (check all), you can't do it. Yahoo returns you to the main email inbox instead, but if you use Disrupted's switcher to add that email page at Yahoo to your list of bad sites, you're fine as the switcher tells Yahoo that you are running FF2 and then I wan able to delete all the old email messages at once.

This is how I've set up Auto Switcher (Tools/User Agent)

[X] Auto Switcher
[X] Default
[X] Reset to Default on Exit

Pls can you give a link to disrupted's Auto switcher - is it an extension or macro ?

Thanks

I do not want to re-read the whole yahoo bug report.

Guenter,

The new Yahoo email doesn't seem to like KM... AutoSwitcher uses FF2 useragent, but that is not enough for Yahoo it seems. I used AutoSwitcher for it, but although it initially said it accepted it, without a few seconds, an error message appeared that said there was a "client side" issue and it bounced me back to Yahoo Classic email. Perhaps Yahoo was looking for FireFox 3.5.xxx instead, not sure.

Add all pages that result in complaint page. Yahoo has alternative IPs.
If needed add pages by hand. I manually added the bookmark by hand.

p.s. It does work normally but e.g. when I am here with one tab and in yahoo with one - it does nor autoswitch fast enough?

yahoo only sniffs for browser at prelogin or pre mail entry(if you already had the cookie).. once you're logged in yahoo mail page they no longer care about the browser, you can even use an agent like lynx and it won't matter.

yahoo doesn't cripple out 'non-popular' browsers, they just prompt use classic which is anyway way better than their crappy ajax. the problem yahoo has with ff2.0 spoof is some nonsense about realplayer incompatibility (complete bullshit) so just use their classic or even better use your email client since yahoo now supports smtp/pop (thanks to fierce competition with google). using the ff spoof with yahoo is not much different than keeping the default kmeleon agent..only instead of displaying 'we are losers,go get another browser' it displays ff2.0 and realtime rubbish and you should update to ff3 but in the end you can still access their "new" ajax mail without problems



yahoo has many mail servers that are not included in the badlist es. br. de. fr. ko. jp cn etc etc if you want to spoof them, just add your localised yahoo mail domain to the badlist (tools>useragent>add website)

hotmail/live works very differently..if it doesn't recognise the browser; it cripples out features and it sniffs all the time you're inside email..login, accessing folders, clicking links so the useragent spoof has to be preserved but the agent is not changed if you switch between tabs that have already been loaded, only when you open a new website/tab so acessing your hotmail account in a session should not be a problem. like yahoo, hotmail/live supports pop/smtp so webmail service is becoming pointless unless your name is dorothy and you don't know how to setup an email client.

if you are on the move (why webmail-hotmail was originally created before every tom, dick and harry wanted an email and now we wonder why there's spam) there's no longer a reason to use webmail with numerous free portable email clients and dirt-cheap portable devices. i think webmail should be abolished and if you can't use an email client you shouldn't be online.. if we get tested before being allowed to drive why should anyone be allowed to use a pc. killing webmail will ultimately end all spam, widespread viruses, botnets and cybercrime since there won't be any online morons to scam.
