What ho Bodhistas?

This is a very minor problem; the workaround is Chromium, but it's a little vexing. I originally loaded Chromium and that worked fine -- until Yahoo mail stopped letting me use the old interface and insisted I use a supported browser (Google Chrome is ok but Chromiumn is not). So I loaded Firefox which I've always (at least 15 years) loved and that got me to Yahoo mail. BUT, I can't play videos or even audio on Tunein. I tried looking for settings but nothing I found has been useful. Is this a thing?

Actually, I hadn't even installed it. After I couldn't find it in the App Center, I googled around and thought I read it wasn't needed. What is the magic spell to install it?

Your issues are odd. I have my mother on 3.2 with chromium and she hasn't said anything about issues with accessing her yahoo mail. She is using chromium because her system is 32bit and I didn't feel like dealing with all the questions about a new browser since she had been using chrome.

@Birdmun

That is odd. I even wrote to Yahoo support and, while completely unhelpful, they agreed that Chromium was not supported.

Since I am sitting at her system, I thought I would share the version with you. She is running Bodhi 3.2.1. Which is kind of obvious by the Ubuntu 14.04 call out. :)

Version 61.0.3163.100 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu , running on Ubuntu 14.04 (32-bit)
