Hi

Currently, I am using FreeBSD 12.1 and having issues with Yahoo mail.
I can login to my yahoo mail account without any problems with Chromium web browser.
But I cannot seems to access and read my mails from my yahoomail account.

However, I did not have any issues while using Firefox.

I believe there is a software bug. The current version that i am using right now is Chromium verison 83.0.4103.106.

Obviously. chromium has so many issues that it currently fails to build with a log of 150MB... (search forum).
Just use another browser (firefox notoriously had numerous security issues as well, but you can use what you want) and if you like, set this thread to solved: right of the 1st post click "..."->"edit thread"->"prefix"

Perhaps you are seeing the same issue with Yahoo Mail under Chromium as I see? In my case I can log in and see my emails in the main list, but if I click one of the email subjects, the page where it should display never fully loads and I can't view the email text. I've found a workaround that if I just do Ctrl-R to reload the page, it then shows up and I can view it.When I go back to the main list I then have to Ctrl-R again to get that page to load. It seems you can go to any URL in Yahoo Mail in the browser, but it has some sort of issue with following links between the pages.

Not a solution, but perhaps a workaround you can use as I do at least.

Port issues aren't the cause of the build failure in this case. The amd64/12.1/latest repository build server doesn't building the port to the end. The build ends because of a build timeout (runaway_process). So are the previous builds, they always end after ~32:04 hours [1]. Maybe the beefy6 build servers hardware is less powerful, it takes longer, maybe poudriere needs the build timeout set higher. For example on quarterly the latest port version, 83.0.4103.116, builds fine, build time for previous versions, ~24:00 h, ~26:00 h for latest [2].

www/chromium has a huge code basis to build from. A log of 150 - 155 MB is normal.

[2] http://beefy2.nyi.freebsd.org/jail.html?mastername=121amd64-quarterly

OP could try the latest version, assuming he tracks the quarterly repository.

The reason could also be a buggy JavaScript scriptlet, or a bug in the JS engine of chromium. Concerning usage of YahooMail ond other so-called free e-mail providers, I can not resist to point to this thread for better alternatives.

It looks like it's not something new having problems with Yahoo Mail on chrome/chromium:


Here some recommendations how to fix (chose the one listed in the first hits of a web search) . I can't tell if those work. Never used Yahoo mail. Or www/chromium, except once or twice for testing:

  • That's a different website (another backend)
  • Much of the work behind the scenes to build & maintain a highly professional system & infrastructure is done by volunteers
  • You can easily (if you want) accept there is an inter-operability bug. Neither chromium, nor YahooMail, nor most other FreeBSD ports are bug-free. Neither is any other system of a certain complexity. MacOS, Windows, Andoid, etc.pp. all have bugs...
  • You can simply choose to use another browser, there are plenty
