Thread: Can't log in to onine accounts (bank, credit card, etc.)

  1. #1

    Default Can't log in to onine accounts (bank, credit card, etc.)

    Not sure where to post this question, so if this is not the place, please, someone let me know where is the right place;

    More and more sites are using newer Adobe crapware in their sites, and since Adobe no longer supports Linux, I can't log in to them. There will be fields for "user name" and "password", then a button to click to "log in" - but now the button won't click - it's only a "picture" of a button, no response at all, nothing happens.

    I'm only assuming it's an Adobe issue, maybe something else but I have no way to know.

    Any ideas, anyone?

    If this is about Flashplayer, that's still available.

    Try Chrome - it doesn't use Adobe's flash implementation, but its own,
    and it seems to work pretty well.

    Otherwise, it's really an issue to take up with the site owner (which,
    sadly, usually results in "use a supported platform" - but unless you
    complain they'll never know).

    FWIW, though, my bank/CC/mobile phone company/etc all work just fine in
    Chrome and FF on Linux.

    Pepperflash ( Google's own implementation ) indeed works fine most of the time.
    @OP: could you check whether it's still flash that's being used? Provide a link so we can give it a try?

    Strange, I am using FireFox 23.0 and the same three flash rpms as listed.

    I have no problem logging in to DIRECTV - #1 Satellite TV - Beats Cable TV - 1-855-802-3473

    Hum: I wonder if it's a Firefox problem.

    Arrgh! Sounds like a lot of complaining to do....

    As I said - "more and more" sites. You may lose access to your sites too, as they "upgrade" them.

    Bah, humbug.

    Incidentally, how can I edit the title of this thread so "onine" says "online"? I don't see a way....

    It could be.

    Yep. That's part of the life of a Linux user - complaining to companies
    that would rather believe that we don't exist. They won't support us if
    they don't know how widespread we are, and the only way they know that is
    if we complain.

    I would be very surprised. I'm seeing less and less flash implemented,
    actually, here in the US. Companies that decide that they don't want my
    business will lose it if they make it impossible for me to interact with
    them without booting a Windows VM.

    HTML5 is emerging as well, so I expect those sites who are now late on
    the Flash bandwagon will ultimately switch to HTML5. Here in the US at
    least, Flash-heavy sites also tend to not meet ADA requirements for
    accessibility - another reason they tend to not implement flash unless
    they absolutely need it (and let's face it, if a bank is wasting time and
    money on a flash-based interface, they're spending their money on the
    wrong thing. Another reason I'd dump my bank if they decided to do that).

    See the FAQ regarding editing posts - I've changed the title in my reply
    here, so further replies in this subthread at least will have the proper
    spelling.

    I know a bank on which FF fails to download account files. Chrome works.
    And the page does not use Flash, AFAIK.
