Reporter: Did you install PSM?
WFM Build ID 2001112615 PC/Linux
It's a nightly build from 20 November. I don't think PSM is required for an insecure login (which yahoo is unless you choose secure explicitly) anyway, is it?
i'm using the same build 2001112012 (downloaded from mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest0.9.6) and it works for me on RH71/gnome. Is true that there are 2 options to login standard|secure but as soon as you "Sign In" PSM is required in both cases. reporter: please verify again thx
this should be a confirmed bug Besides mail.yahoo.com, cannot sign-in on a similar form to games.yahoo.com Build 2001112012 Using Mandrake 8.0
check your firewall settings guys. port 443 should not be blocked. i had something similar before.
No firewall here. Again, it worked fine with 0.95. Does the precompiled 2001112012 have APM, Alexandru?
APM? do u mean PSM? Is built with PSM2 be cause is a distribution build. And it really works for me. I can login on mail, games, geocities whatever comes from yahoo. I swear! :-)
aw... just another question: is there maybe a proxy between your machine and yahoo?
Yes, I meant PSM - excuse me! No, no Proxy. As I said, it worked with moz .95 on the same machine. I'll revert and see if I get yahoo back. If so, I'll know it's something other than the browser.
i installed the 0.9.6 from mozilla.org on my linux machine at home, and it works too. (i just replaced the existent mozilla directory with the one from the tarball - no installer needed)

any news guys? still having problems with it?
Hi testing on Windows NT I can't log in to Yahoo mail (mail.yahoo.com) either (neither on Netscape 6 nor Mozilla 0.9.6). On the same computer I can log in fine using Opera 5.01 so I don't think this is an obvious proxy problem. I am connecting in unsecure mode in all browsers. Before sending login to yahoo Mozilla tells me the security warning: "You have requested an encrypted page. The website has identified itself correctly, and information you see or enter on this page cannot be easily read by a third party". Then straight away I get "You have requested an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information. Information that you see or enter on this page could easily be read by a third party" On Mozilla 0.9.6 (build ID 2001112009) the login is refused by yahoo and I get a message from them about my browser not accepting cookies. On netscape 6 the screen just freezes (and nothing happens) after clicking on "send login". Then I get the login in page again. Again I type my userid password. This time yahoo responds with a complaint about cookies and hasn't let me in to my mail account >The browser you're using refuses to sign in. (cookies rejected) >We need to use "cookies" to identify you on our system. Try these steps >• Just try signing again. If your browser asks you to accept cookies, choose >"accept" each time. >• Perhaps your browser is not set to allow cookies. Consult "Help" on your >browser to find out how to change this setting. I have my browser set up to ask me before accepting cookies (maybe that is the problem?).
You are having a different problem than I was. My Mozilla would say "Document Done, .12 seconds [or whatever]," assuming that it had done everything that it should have. Your problem definately sounds like a cookie problem, whereas mine seems to have been a result of a single build. I'm using Yahoo Mail on a build with the same ID (2001112012) but built for the i686 arch instead of i386. That may or may not have something to do with the fact that it works now...?
I just tried and was able to log in. For testing, please do the following: Use profile manager (on Linux you can start mozilla with argument -ProfileManager) and create yourself a separate fresh new profile. Try to login to yahoo using that profile. Try both "secure" and "standard" login modes. Please let us know whether that works.
John: Few questions: - is it working now for you? - which build are you using now and where is it from? - have you built the prvious non-working version on your own? - which machine are you using and which Linux distribution? thx

i have the exact same problems. ive tried using old versions of mozilla with no luck. oddly enough: netscape 6.2 works, i dont know why.
The psm-related issue is really a number of bugs: 1) Mozilla should put up an error dialog when psm is not installed and one tries to access a secure (https) web page. It currently does nothing but show "Document: Done (0.012 secs)" in the ststus bar. This makes it very difficult to troubleshoot this problem. 2) The documentation suggests that recent mozilla builds are bundled with psm. While this is apparently true for tarballs, there is a seperate rpm for mozilla-psm. So, it's unclear to the end user that this has to be installed seperately. 3) I'm no expert on rpms, but can't they contain information about mandatory or suggested package dependencies? If so, the mozilla rpm should at least have a suggested dependency on the mozilla-psm package.
mike: good hints! coould you please check the installer bugs and see if there are already bugs posted about this issues? could you please open a bug for them? thanx!
I installed via a precompiled tarball, not the RPM. BTW, I don't think RPMs have "suggested" dependencies - only required ones. I'm no expert either, but I've never seen such a thing. That error (Done: 0.012 seconds) is exactly what I was getting, down to the character. It came up right away (0.012 seconds, right? :) strongly suggesting a bug.

I am getting almost the same failure on mail.yahoo.com & play.yahoo.com signon pages. Mozilla crashes immediately after clicking the submit button and it happens EVERY time for me. I am on Win2k Pro, and it's happened with builds 20011212xx and 20011214xx. (the build I had prior to that, which I don't remember) worked OK.
Yesterday I installed 0.9.6 I cannot log in to Yahoo mail. As decribed in the orignal bug report. the login just hangs. I can then bring immediately bring up netscape 4.78, and log in with no trouble.
You can't login anywhere in Yahoo. http://www.liverpoolfc.tv is broken too. What do they have in common? https login. Hack the source and remove the 's' and you can log in to Yahoo again. Why did no-one notice that you can't log into the world's most popular website?
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
If you're one of the people seeing this bug and you are sure that you have a build with PSM installed can you please add this information: latest BuildID tested: OS: Hardware (processor type and speed): specific URLs that fail: Thanks.
I think I now understand the problem. I believe it is a Yahoo! bug. The problem does only appear, when the security component is not installed. When you go to http://mail.yahoo.com, not changing anything, the page says "Mode: Standard", with the option to click on Secure (a link pointing to https). But that's an option. If you *not* click on Secure, I'd expect that the form should be submitted in the insecure mode, without using https, just plain http. But looking at the page source, you can clearly see that the form action points to an https URL. And that will simply fail without having PSM installed, as in that case https is an unknown protocol. I just tested that with an installation of Mozilla 097, without having PSM installed. When I try to submit the form, I get the error message "Unknown socket type. Loading aborted.". It works for me when I have PSM installed. Note that in bug 114441, Georg also said that installing PSM solved his problem. Somebody should evangelize the mail.yahoo.com webmasters to fix their page. Setting to INVALID.
