From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9) Gecko/20010505 BuildID: 200105015 I tried to login to My Yahoo (https://my.secure.yahoo.com) for the first time since installing Mozilla. Each time I entered my account name and password, I was taken back to the initial login screen. However, when I closed the window, and then opened a new window and entered the same URL, I was automatically logged in and the My Yahoo screen for my account displayed correctly. Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to https://my.secure.yahoo.com 2. Enter account name and password. Actual Results: My Yahoo initial login screen appeared again Expected Results: My Yahoo page for my account should have appeared.
This behavior was also reported in bug 81696 when logging in to excite. Probably a dup.

I agree, the behavior in later comments of bug report 81696 does look to be the same bug. Sorry if this turns out to be a duplicate.
this works for me. Looks like my.yahoo.com switched to some JS login? It used to be another page, there looks like new content to me. I'm on 5/19 bits, w2k.
After reading the previous comment, I downloaded the "nightly build". With this new version, I do not see the problem: Mozilla 0.9+ Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9+) Gecko/20010519 Build ID: 2001051920 I can still reproduce the problem with: Mozilla 0.9 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9) Gecko/20010505 Build ID: 2001050515
marking worksforme per reporter
Status: UNCONFIRMED → RESOLVED
Last Resolved: 18 years ago
Resolution: --- → WORKSFORME
I was wondering why this was marked as "WORKSFORME" instead of "FIXED", since I was able to reproduce the problem with the 0.9 milestone build.
Matt, Fixed is reserved for bug reports which were actually assigned to a developer and fixed. This report does not meet that criteria.
Understood. What confused me was the definition of "WORKSFORME": "All attempts at reproducing this bug were futile..." Since I had reproduced the bug, I thought this did not apply. Perhaps this should read "All attempts at reproducing this bug in the current build were futile..."
