Last night I had trouble logging into BBC iplayer. The help desk there thought it was a browser problem. Today I can't access my yahoo mail either. I can log in to my yahoo account but it won't show me my mail. When I try to click on the link to mail it tells me it can't connect me - because of a browser problem. Please help.

It could be also your IBM Security Rapport I notice you have Kaspersky disabled : There is security software like Avast/AVG, Kaspersky, BitDefender and ESET Do you have a full version installed as that can be the issue also.

  • all extensions are disabled (about:addons)
  • default theme is used (no persona)
  • userChrome.css and userContent.css are ignored (chrome folder)

  • Javascript JIT compilers are disabled (prefs: javascript.options.*jit)
  • hardware acceleration is disabled (Options > Performance > Uncheck to view)
  • plugins are not affected
  • preferences are not affected
