hi there,
i’m using the most current version of TenFourFox.
today i’d got a problem - my "beloved" and daily visited site https://windfinder.com won’t let me enter again. it says my browser seems to old!
as i see this is the only one site which fools me on my good old PC G5, so sad.
is there any possibility to help out for that please?
thx a lot in advance

    I've had no problem loading that page using TenFourFox FPR 10. Can you try again and make a screenshot of the message you're getting claiming that the browser is too old?

    Hi Chris,

    and thanks for your reply to this!

    yes i have FPR 10 running too.
    and spare to do a screenshot of a silly tool alike browser-update.org which
    unobtrusively notify visitors that they should update

    i think i know why you had been able to enter easily this site, today -
    right?

    it¹ may be cause i¹d wrote these guys yesterday and they did kindly answer
    explaining what reason was they had done that, to prevent the use of ³an 10
    years old unsecure encoding set used by some browsers² and had modified it
    now btw. scaled down the requirement considerately to older browsers and
    systems, they said ...

    cheers
