We have re-enabled access for those with extremely old browsers such as those from Nokia e71 cellphones and other mobile devices. Outdated browsers support was phased out in our most recent security upgrade but we have made some changes to extend their compatibility. We highly recommend anyone with a browser or mobile device that is more than 5 years old to install either Opera Mini browser or Chrome browser when applicable.
