Firefox or Chrome won’t display Yahoo webmail

Well, happens that Yahoo is underdoing some changes to their web based email interface, so Firefox and Chrome seem that are not able to display Inbox (just a little notice Loading emails…).

There is a workaround until they get back into their right minds and test their interface in a more common web browser than Internet Explorer, whatever it’s number it is:

Disable Javascript in your browser and you’ll be asked to revert to the old (Yahoo) email, temporary or permanent, upon logging in. Do that and you’ll be able again to use your webmail.

Firefox: Tools – Options – Content tab – uncheck Allow Javascript
Chrome: click the gear in the upper right – Options – Content settings – check the other radio button

For Vista/7 Chrome  nerds:
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe -disable-javascript

For Windows XP Chrome nerds:
“C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome” -disable-javascript

You can reactivate Javascript once you’re logged in, even if you choosed temporary, how long you stay logged in.
Or do all the trick again, before each login 😉

Happy Yahoo mailing everyone!

rumor: are they rewriting for the HTML5 (ie IE9 – involuntary pun intended)?
