i haven't been able to connect to msn or yahoo using FIRE v1.0.3 for a
while now: msn for about 2 months and yahoo for about 3 weeks. is
there something i should be aware of?
i emailed fire about a month ago regarding connect>disconnect>connect
pattern with MSN; fire responed quickly but the problem was not
resolved. i have resorted to using msn messenger.
3 weeks ago, i moved to china. have been able to log onto yahoo with
FIRE but starting two weeks ago, i get 'connecting' dialogue and
nothing else. incidentally, i can't get yahoo messenger to log in
either. is it china? is it fire?
tonight i read articles about yahoo and msn threatening to throw out
3rd party software and wondered if this is what has actually happened.
the articles date back to fall 2003 and i know i have received
software updates since. i've tried to log onto the sourceforge page
and have not been able to connect. is there something i should know
if someone can tell me what is going on, i'd surely appreciate it.
thanks ahead of time.
