10.4: Spoof old PowerPC Firefox with Universal version
Authored by: kray on Apr 19, '06 07:57:16PM

I have to agree with the parent on this one -- there are probably other underlying problems causing issues.

For example -- I have been running my user agent string for a LONG LONG time (before the big Intel announcement :)

"Google-Browser/0.99 (OS/X-Leopard_Intel; 64-bit)"

This is regardless of browser I use (Safari or Firefox)...

I just followed my own advice to confirm the hint. I changed "PPC" back to "Intel" in useragent, and Yahoo! Mail doesn't offer to autocomplete addresses. Changed it to "PPC" and autocomplete works. All this in a running browser, no other system changes.

At least in this specific case, a site is being too strict about how it interprets useragent, and doesn't serve the same Javascript each time.
