Does this version contain security measurements against the meltdown exploit?

Try the Google extension. It’s not the same as the backup tool’s approach, but it’s more flexible, as you can switch between several different user agents with a click or two. And you can switch back just as easily.

Which one brings up this issue : the browser or the new version of Yahoo Mail ?
Again, thanks for your time and help !
It's probably a combination of the two: A stricter check by Yahoo that doesn't like Iron's user agent.
Check out Google's User-Agent Switcher for Chrome https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/user-agent-switcher-for-c/djflhoibgkdhkhhcedjiklpkjnoahfmg
I use it for my bank, which doesn't like the Iron user agent.
Every time Chrome's updated, I grab the Chrome user agent and create a new user agent in Iron and then set it to default.
Here's what I'm using currently:
Code: Select all
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/63.0.3239.108 Safari/537.36
Here's one place to see your user agent: http://useragentstring.com/
Hopefully that's enough to get Yahoo to work with Iron.
Thank you very much for jumping in and posting this; highly appreciated .
I must admit I have completely forgotten to "explore" this possibility of switching the User Agent; I'll follow your indications and try that out asap.
And I'll surely will revert and keep you informed right here.

Is anyone having problems upgrading the portable version and retaining their profile? I'm currently using 61.0.3200 and did the upgrade the way I always have - copying everything from the zip except the profile folder - but when I load 63.0.3300 my entire configuration is ignored. I then tired the backup/restore program on a fresh install to see if that made a difference, but no luck; my profile is not loaded. Any ideas on how I might resolve this?
