Yahoo's browser-sniffing code is apparently defective or outdated. When I go to www.yahoo.com, I get a message telling me to upgrade to a more recent browser.

Why miss out?
To see all the new Yahoo! home page has to offer, please upgrade to a more recent browser.

Supported browsers include:
Internet Explorer 7 optimized by Yahoo!
Firefox 1.5
Safari 2.0
Opera 8.5

Note that among the options is the deprecated Firefox/1.5.

Ouch!

Sorry, wasn't clear... I was using my Nokia phone, but Yahoo is suggesting that I upgrade to Firefox/1.5
