Want to know if a problem with a customized yahoo home page was caused by a firefox update?

Posted

I have a customized yahoo home page. In the last few weeks the weather locations stopped working. It used to list several different locations and I could pick one to check weather at that location. Now the only location is my current location by GPS. I can not add locations as that is the problem. Could it be a firefox update that caused this problem or is the problem a yahoo problem. I tried asking yahoo help but they were no help at all. Thanks for any help.

Hi vette123, is it on an address similar to

https://my.yahoo.com/

If so, could you test in another browser such as Microsoft Edge to see whether the weather widget works in that browser?

Yes that is how the address starts. I opened the page on Microsoft Edge and the weather widget did not work. When I type in a new location the + sign does not let me add that location.

Hmm, possibly the widget is broken temporarily, or changed. Do they have a different one that might have additional features? Or do they only support a limited list of locations?
