Getting warning for outdated/unsecure browser on Ebay.com
Changing to Google Chrome did not work. resetting to default did. all good thank you.
@DanZellman Probably an ebay cookie already stored the unsupported browser information before the change. Btw, now it will work
This is the pop up I get when visiting Ebay:
"Oh No! Update your browser today! Starting June 30, your favorite sites won’t support outdated, unsecure browsers for online shopping. Update Now."
I clicked the "Update Now" link and got a list of the "updated" browsers. Vivaldi is not included. Will we have difficulties with Ebay in the future? Will Vivaldi be included in the "updated" browser list?![alt text](image url)

@BriKyKo if answering the first time in a thread, do not forget to tell browser version and OS version (both see Vivaldi menu Help → About).
The current version is: 6.1.3035.84.
Select Vivaldi menu Help → Check for Updates.
6.1.3035.84 (Stable channel) (64-bit)
I just updated today, so it is the latest version. I did visit the Ebay site after and the popup/banner of the warning was still there. Thanks.
@DoctorG Im in the US on Windows 11. I simply go to my home page.
Do you use any privacy extension which changes user-agent (browser) id to a older or switched version?
Which user-agent is shown in Settings → Network?
@BriKyKo What is shown for you as browser's user-agent at https://www.whatismybrowser.com/detect/what-is-my-user-agent/
@DoctorG I went to the link and this is what showed:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/188.8.131.52 Safari/537.36
@BriKyKo Thais is a regular and correct user-agent.
//EDIT: Can you check Settings → Network?
Should be "Report Browser Brand" as "Google
Chrome" and not more.
Im thinking this is just a notice that will remain till June 30th. I know Vivaldi does not show up on the "updated" browser list but do you think this will matter? I will see on June 30th as I dont plan on changing browsers. I love Vivaldi too much
@BriKyKo Vivaldi is not shown because Ebay had not listed it.
But as Vivaldi is similar to Chromium/Chrome all should be nice after 30th of June.
@DoctorG AAAHHHH it was set to Vivaldi. I changed it to Google. NO MORE WARNINGS!!!!
Sorry for the delay. The forum says I must wait 120s between postings.
@BriKyKo Pleased to help you
Yes I did change it. I was going through the settings and saw it set to Google and I thought: "Wait this is Vivaldi" and so changed it to Vivaldi.
