Same problem with Mozilla 1.6 on XP: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 It started a couple weeks ago using a 6 month old version of Firebird. All yahoo pages started coming up blank, with the "done" message on the status bar. I upgraded to Moz 1.6 but still no fix. Seems as though something's changed at yahoo. I can't find where at yahoo to complain.
I saw this for the last couple weeks with nightly builds of Firefox at https://my.secure.yahoo.com/ but it doesn't seem to happen anymore.
Created attachment 144518 [details] Error log : blank page I was facing the same problem as mentioned in this bug: sites: http://yahoo.com http://mail.yahoo.com Using Mozilla 1.6 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 Tried upgrading to 1.7, but still the problem persists From somewhere in net found that you can enable debug info on mozilla. Attached is the log when the blank page comes.

I can't reproduce this with a recent trunk build of Mozilla 1.7 on WinXP or Firefox 0.8 on WinXP or SuSe. Alan, can you reproduce this with a recent build? If so, can you reproduce it with a new profile? Is there anything special about your configuration?
I pulled down the lastest nightly builds for linux and winXP. I tried both and they both still fail. I also tried the linux version with a new profile and the same for winXP to rule out any personal settings. So I still don't know what's going on. The only thing I can think of is it might be the corporate firewall? Any ideas? Alan
unable to reproduce on red hat enterprise linux v. 3 and fedora core 2 test 2 with Mozilla 1.7 beta and a current nightly build. I visited all of the yahoo products without problems. also tested windows XP with 1.7 beta and a current Firefox nightly build. No problems there either.
I've now checked around on a handful of other machines including Red Hat Severn beta, Fedora Core 1 and FC2. I tested on a second winXP system and a win2K system and wasn't able to reproduce the problem. If you're seeing this problem and upgrading to a newer build doesn't solve the problem, can you try accessing yahoo sites with a new profile? You can create and switch to a new profile in Mozilla from the Tools -> Switch Profile... menu item or in Firefox by running firefox.exe -ProfileManager. If this problem is solved by a new profile, the next step would be to determine which file in the profile was causing the problem. The first step might be to check clearing the cache. After that it might be worth checking some of the networking preferences to see if those who can reproduce all have something in common there (Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> HTTP Networking or about:config filtered to "network") Right now, without being able to reproduce this, I don't see how we're going to make any progress fixing it. More information from anyone experiencing it would be really helpful.
Now it working fine.... I am using 7.b load, last week the same load was showing the problem... but i don't know why/how, this week it started working. I didn't changed any pref/setting on my mozilla, but somehow the pages are loading fine. Thanks for your efforts.
This happens constantly in IE at my library. I don't think it's Mozilla. (WFM, but my build is ancient - 1.6)
I am getting this problem with Mozilla 1.7b on Yahoo pages. If I go to the following URL: http://finance.yahoo.com/q?d=t&s=HPQ then only the header of the page will display. I can go to any stock symbol the same fashion and get the same results. i.e. http://finance.yahoo.com/q?d=t&s=IBM or http://finance.yahoo.com/q?d=t&s=F all result in the same behavior. I saw this with the default version of mozilla that came with my RH 9 install. I have since removed that version of mozilla (1.2.1) and installed 1.7b, only to get the same results. I have cleared both my memory and disk caches, reinstalled 1.7b, etc... but still can not see this page.
Related to bug 222069?
I don't see how we can block on this if we can't get reliable steps to reproduce it. Also, if people are seeing this on Mozilla 1.2.1 (comment 10) then it's not a recent regression and if it was a widespread problem, we'd have heard a lot about it in 1.2 and 1.4-based releases (like Netscape 7).

Perhaps of note, since about a week ago, Yahoo! has worked at my library. Maybe it was a temporary issue with Yahoo!?
This just started for me. http://my.yahoo.com/ comes up with an (Untitled) title bar and a blank page. This started this afternoon, with a previous 1.8a. I'm now using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040511 and http://my.yahoo.com still comes up blank. Further, the processing time for this page is minimal. Not more than a second or so. Due to this happening with no change to the browser, I'm wondering if Yahoo! changed something. Also, I will experiment with deleting cookies, etc., and see if I can get behavior changes.
1) Search Cookie Manager for all cookies containing "yahoo." 2) Remove those cookies. 3) Open http://my.yahoo.com 4) Get the generic My Yahoo! page, with the option to log in on the left side. 5) Log in with name and password. 6) Select "Remember my ID & Password" 7) Click "Sign In." 8) Get a blank page with this URL (in my case): https://login.yahoo.com/config/verify?.done=http%3a//us.rd.yahoo.com/my/guest/loginbox/*http%3a//my.yahoo.com +++ An attachment with the cookie information added by Yahoo through this login will follow shortly.
I just tested with a brand new profile, for no change. 1) Get the un-personalized "http://my.yahoo.com/" 2) Log in as before. 3) Get "you are about to view an encrypted page" pop-up, immediately followed by "you are about to leave an encrypted page" pop-up. 4) Get a blank page under this URL: https://login.yahoo.com/config/verify?.done=http%3a//us.rd.yahoo.com/my/guest/loginbox/*http%3a//my.yahoo.com 5) Get these cookies put in cookies.txt: .yahoo.com TRUE / FALSE 1086158153 I ir=cr&in=13de10cf&i1=AAASDhDmDoDpEIFZF5GAGBILKvMiOtP+P/QKfEgrBhABqJCqAD5v5x53CxAIFSHKL1L+MHMOMQMTCzACeze0DDABgN .yahoo.com TRUE / FALSE 1271361601 T z=IXcoABIdxoAB8d1HQjN.mtyMjdOBjFON081NDYxNw--&a=YAE&sk=DAA1SeLgjy.JVD&d=c2wBTlRBNUFUWTVNRGd5TXpFMk1BLS0BYQFZQUUBb2sBWlcwLQF0aXABRFpYYzZDAXp6AUlYY29BQmdXQQ-- .yahoo.com TRUE / FALSE 1271361601 Y v=1&n=4hhbm5svufp44&l=305o33ssxx/o&p=m262ssje53qv0a00&jb=29|52|&r=1l&lg=us&intl=us .yahoo.com TRUE / FALSE 1271361601 F a=lWdS2lYsvW_B795t8rjX4kjWpjS.y3Pp66xZ0C4sxaXAaMsLvIKYP0I1KV5R&b=tpZ4 .yahoo.com TRUE / FALSE 1271361600 B 6ia592h0a3hdt&b=2 .my.yahoo.com TRUE / FALSE 1271361600 V G=1084343741 +++ So, this isn't a profile thing.
And today, the page comes up without a problem. Some weird programming change at Yahoo? Some weird interaction with cookie's date code? Beats me...
FYI, using lynx from a UNIX shell (non-interactive) to illustrate yahoo's reaction to certain user agents. Zero characters returned if useragent is Mozilla/5. Suggests to me a problem internal to yahoo. % lynx -dump -source -useragent 'Mozilla/5' http://www.yahoo.com/ | wc -c Warning: User-Agent string does not contain "Lynx" or "L_y_n_x"! 0 % lynx -dump -source -useragent 'Mozilla/4' http://www.yahoo.com/ | wc -c Warning: User-Agent string does not contain "Lynx" or "L_y_n_x"! 34041 % lynx -dump -source -useragent 'Mozilla/' http://www.yahoo.com/ | wc -c Warning: User-Agent string does not contain "Lynx" or "L_y_n_x"! 34041 % lynx -dump -source -useragent 'Mozilla' http://www.yahoo.com/ | wc -c Warning: User-Agent string does not contain "Lynx" or "L_y_n_x"! 30490
I had the same problem, was able to resolve by setting general.useragent.overrride to MSIE
I'm told it's a proxy issue in some proxy server versions. Apparently yahoo only enables gzip encoding for a known set of userAgents. Thus even if your browser transmits accept-encoding:gzip (as some lynx versions and usages do), but with a non-Mozilla/5 userAgent, yahoo still avoids gzip, avoiding the issue. True fix: upgrade/replace/avoid the problem proxy server. Work-arounds: forge a non-Mozilla/5 userAgent similar to above; or leave userAgent as Mozilla/5 but config to disable transmit of accept-encoding:gzip in prefs.js by: user_pref("network.http.accept-encoding", "");
Resolving as WFM. Comments indicate that this was either a server-side or proxy problem. If anyone disagrees, feel free to reopen and provide more info.
