    I’m running the GroupWise 8 client on Linux. When I set it up to use Yahoo Mail, Yahoo comes back saying that I need to upgrade FireFox to or higher, even though the system has FireFox 3.0 installed.

    I’m assuming that the GW client has it’s own rendering engine that is based on FF which is what is causing this issue.

    Does anyone know of a work around? If I tell it to “Proceed at your own risk using an older version of FireFox”, GroupWise just hangs.

      You could check a couple of things. First, what is your default HTML Browser as found under Tools | Options | Environment | General | HTML Browser?

      I have tried it with both Internet Explorer and Firefox with you seeing the problem you mentioned above.

      Here is what I’m running:
      Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3
