Why can't I access my personal Yahoo mail? It says "Bad Request"
I have been using Camino 1.6.11 on my Mac G4 for several years, but now GMail is asking me to upgrade to Mozilla. Since I only have an OS 10.3.9, I could only download Firefox 2.0. Now I cannot access my Yahoo mail. This laptop is so old it is not worth getting a newer Mac OS X.
Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.
"Clear the Cache":
- Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"
"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:
- Firefox > Preferences > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"
If clearing the cookies doesn't help then it is possible that the file cookies.sqlite that stores the cookies is corrupted.
Rename (or delete) cookies.sqlite (cookies.sqlite.old) and delete cookies.sqlite-journal and cookies.txt, if they exist, in the Firefox Profile Folder in case the file cookies.sqlite got corrupted.
