I got a screen that stated: ERROR To use this application with Netscape, you must use a 4.7x version. Download now. Please use the following error code when writing to Yahoo! Help. (Error Code: 12) The version number is being queried and Yahoo is finding a non-matching or older version number. Ivan Collver Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. log on to http://launch.yahoo.com/musicvideos 2. Select any video to play 3. Actual Results: Error code 12 splash will be displayed. Expected Results: Have a version number that is 4.7 or later in the scanned version area. This also fails in Firebird 0.6.1 and I have not tried Mozilla 1.5 but suspect it also will fail.
Sounds like a bug in the site; the actual code they use to sniff would be much appreciated.
This is a known Yahoo issue. They deliberately block out Gecko browsers for technical reasons. See the dup'ed bug. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 192413 ***
