The following step need to modify Browser User Agent, and its done on Firefox browser.

  1. Download and install Mozilla Firefox “User Agent Switcher” plug-in from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/user-agent-switcher/
  2. Create new User Agent, for example I created new “Nokia E71” Browser user agent which this user agent is not supported by New Yahoo Mail interface.
    Description: Nokia E71
    User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (SymbianOS/9.2; U; Series60/3.1 NokiaE71-3/1.00.000; Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1;)AppleWebKit/413(KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/413

  3. Login as usual into your New Yahoo Mail interface
  4. Once you have logged in successfully, switch the Browser User Agent from “Default User Agent” to “Nokia E71”. ( Tools Menu > “Default User Agent” > select “Nokia E71” )
  5. Refresh your Yahoo Mail page (Press F5)
  6. Yahoo Mail will reported the unsupported browse with this following error description:
    You’re almost there, but your web browser doesn’t support the newest version of Yahoo! Mail
    and there is a section “To return to a previous version of Yahoo! Mail…
  7. Click the link “Return to a previous version of Yahoo! Mail” to switch back permanently into classic version
  8. After successfully opening Yahoo Mail in the classic version, switch back the Browser User Agent into “Default User Agent”
  9. Logoff from Yahoo Mail, and re-try to logon into Yahoo Mail
  10. Done, Now your Yahoo Mail will be opened in classic version

Another simple way is…

  • By disabling Javascript. In Firefox goto Tools menu > Option > Content > Untick “Enable JavaScript”
  • Login into Yahoo! Mail, or refresh Yahoo! Mail page if you already logon into Yahoo! Mail
  • Click Inbox link
  • Once you clicked Inbox link, you will got following error: “You need to have Javascript enabled in order to use the newest version of Yahoo! Mail“, and there is a section “To return to a previous version of Yahoo! Mail…
  • Click the link “Return to a previous version of Yahoo! Mail” to switch back permanently into classic version
  • Re-enable option of JavaScript
