MySpace Thinks I'm Using an Unsupported Browser on XP


[link to this post]
 
on this page: http://uk.myspace.com/help/browserunsupported (if you can see it) and insists I install a different one, including IE9. It gives me no option to log in.

I am using IE8 on my XP Desktop. But I am also using the same browser on my Vista laptop and that allows me to log in normally.

What's the difference? I have cleared cookies on XP just in case, but no.

Is MySpace getting too big for its boots. I'm not being forced into changing my browser just to satisfy a mere social networking site. I'm happy with IE8 and will install IE9 (or any other) in my own time.

This is a sick joke, right? Myspace died a horrible death about 5 years ago.

My space is still a good place to go to find music that you would never hear other wise. I still use My space for that. Hopefully the new owners will sort the site out.

As for the Op question,, strange very strange as I know someone who still use IE 7 on windows Xp and can use Myspace.

As AEP implies, it would appear to have a bug... using OS X and Safari, it claims my browser is unsupported and offers Safari as one of the options... crazy.

MySpace may not be the most popular social networking site, but it is far from dead.

This forum isn't Free Chat, it's for providing help and/or advice. If you can't even manage honesty and accuracy, don't post.

That's a sick comment!

The bands I follow still maintain pages on MySpace.

How? I can't get their Home page, just that instruction to change browser.

On Vista, I suppose grin. But it still makes no sense.

I did wonder last night, after I posted this, whether I'm being phished, but all the links on that page are pukka, as well as the URL itself.

I was working on the basis that you could use your laptop.

You are right that it makes no sense, which makes it sound like a bug.

Curiouser and curiouser!

I can even access MySpace from my Kindle, which has an experimental browser, not even one of their "supported" ones. So why not XP?

After ignoring the gist of my query and saying effectively "if it says you need to upgrade then it's time to upgrade!" they now say:
We are currently reviewing the system error. We apologize for any inconvenience that might have been caused.
I might be wrong, but I'm a bit skeptical that they are just sending out pro-forma replies. Here's hoping they mean it.

My space have just been sold, so I expect there is a lot of things going on, hopefully they will do something with it and bring it back to how it was.

It started working today. I can now access it w/out being told I've got the wrong type of browser smile . Guess they fixed it.

Talk of MySpace's ownership nor that it is on its last legs had no bearing on the issue. It is still a viable meeting place for bands.

Moderate your language and ranting! It's completely unnecessary.

MySpace still works for me after being fixed 2 months ago.
