    BB Browser won't redirect to a new site

    Advertisement



    Hello,

    I'm new to BB and Pinstack so I hope I'm doing this right. I have been unsuccessful in finding the answer to my question by using the search feature.

    I've got an 8300 (about 5 days old). I'm trying to use the BB browser to access SBC Yahoo email accounts through the "normal" site by going to sbc.yahoo.com (i.e. just like you would from a desktop). I can get to the site fine but when I try to log in I get a message that the browser is not cofigured to allow redirection to a new URL. I'm not that smart (yet!) about browser settings but have tried setting the TLS to allow redirection (settings->options->security->TLS->Allow HTTPS Redirections=yes) and that did not fix the problem. The "Trusted Hosts" list (at that same screen) is currently empty because I'm not sure what, if anything, should go in there.

    The obvious question is "Why don't you simply have these email accounts pushed to the Blackberry"
    The answer is, they are my wife's and daughter's personal accounts and I don't want to have to continually get/delete their email, I simply want them to be able to occasionally check it on the BB when it's not convenient for them to have access to a desktop or laptop.

    Thanks for the great site and all the useful info. Any suggestions/solutions/education would be most appreciated.

    not sure this will help you, but give this a shot-

    this is my browsers config settings:
    open browser then press menu and go to options then browser config,
    check all boxes except allow java popups
    style sheets media type: handheld
    show images: on wml and html pages
    emulation mode: microsoft IE
    content mode: wml and html
    start page: set to whatever you want
    home page: do whatever you want there

    then do a reboot just in case and then try your email site again. let us know if this helps

    p.s. welcome to the stacks!

    mudshovel,

    Thanks for the greeting and the thoughts. Unfortunately, they do not resolve the issue. When I check the "Support Javascript" box, then the base site (sbc.yahoo.com) reloads continuously. If I stop it and try to log in I get the same error as before. In case it's helpful (and because you subtley suggested it by listing yours ) I've listed my settings below:

    Browser options->Browser Configuration
    All boxes checked except Support Javascript
    Style sheets media types: Handheld
    Show images: onWML & HTML pages
    Emulation mode: Blackberry (so far, doesn't seem to matter even if I try the other modes without changing anything else)
    Content mode: WML & HTML

    Browser options->General Properties
    Default Browser: MEdia Net
    Font info (the next 4 lines): seems irrelevant
    Default view: Mobile
    Image quality: Medium
    Repeat Animations: Once
    Enable JavaScript Location Support: not checked
    Prompt before: Closing modified pages checked, other two not checked.

    harry,

    Thank you too for the suggestion. Unfortunately it does not work either . When I try to log on with either Opera mini 3.1 or 4.0 beta I get a message that to access the SBC portal, I have to be using either I.E. 5 or higher or Nescape Navigator 6.2 or higher so there must be something about Opera mini that isn't compatible. I normally use Mozilla on the desktop. Fooey.

    Well that's bizarre! I must have something not set right. Having said that, I did try yahoo.com and it seems to work so thanks again for all the follow up! Just to satisfy my morbid curiosity however, would you mind posting your other browser/security settings so I can see where mine differ?

    Chalk one up to pinstack!

    Just a weird thought. have you tried a battery pull to see if that might fix it..Maybe your cache is full try clearing that up as well.

    Good thoughts. I did pull the battery when I rebooted before (how else do you do it?) but I haven't tried clearing the cache.

    Thanks.

    Thanks - I did discover where to clear the cache although I haven't tried it yet. I was really wondering if there is a way to reboot without pulling the battery.
