Starting April 1st, we will end support for Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 8 and older. Support for SSL 3.0 will also be discontinued, but we will still support TLS 1.0 and above. This security measure is to ensure that we keep your BrickLink browsing experience safe and secure.

For more information on the specific security bug that SSL 3.0 has, please see this post by Mozilla: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2014/10/14/the-poodle-attack-and-the-end-of-ssl-3-0/

At the time of writing, supported versions are as follows:

* IE versions 9, 10, 11 & Edge
* Google Chrome version 49
* Mozilla Firefox version 44
* Safari version 9
* Opera version 35

What does it mean to be “supported?”

A browser without support will no longer receive updates or technical support. A majority of updates are fixes for critical security bugs that keep your data safe. Using software without these updates is comparable to leaving your front door unlocked - all it takes is someone curious to try and break in.
Please take a moment to compare and pick the browser you’ll enjoy most at http://browsehappy.com.

If you’ve noticed mobile browsers missing from this list, we would like to reassure you that the mobile browsers will continue to work. However, we cannot commit to specific versions until we have finalized our mobile content strategy. We’ll continue to explore approaches that will maintain the BrickLink experience without removing the functionality that you, our users, have come to rely on every day.

Sincerely,
Your BrickLink Team

Why is Firefox ESR 38 not supported by BrickLink?
It is still supported by Mozilla and gets security updates.

  * Safari version 9
* Opera version 35

Hey Ronald,

Since Mozilla just started ESR 38's end-of-life cycle, we decided to support
ESR version 45 which was released on Tuesday March 8th.

Question on browser support.

Forgive me because I'm not tech savvy.

Monday night the Google Chrome browser that I'm using requested me to update
to a newer version which I did. It now shows me that I'm using Version 48.0.2564.116.

I tried searching on the internet to see if this was equivalent but was unable
to determine. Is this supported. I did a check and it says there are no more
updates and that I have the current version.

Thanks for any help.

Pam

Hey Pam,

As long as you continue to allow your browser to self update, you won't run
into any issues. The current stable version is 48 for chrome, it's my mistake
for not double checking the version number on browsehappy.com which is listed
as 49.

Sorry for the confusion,

Andrew

Is there any reason why I cannot seem to load Bricklink properly on an Apple
iPhone or iPad through broadband connections but on a 3G or 4G mobile connection
it works fine?

Hello Daave,

I have also experienced a similar problem on my iPhone, the difference being
that I could access some sites but not all. The best I can do for you is point
you in the right direction, I suggest starting with a diagnoses of your router.
A few things that may be causing the problem in no particular order are: DNS
setup, IP conflict (two devices accidentally assigned to the same address on
the router), or dynamic vs static IP allocation. I would start with a hard reset
of the hardware and if you are unable to solve this connectivity issue you might
have to contact the manufacturer of your router.

Sorry I can't be of more help,

Andrew

Andrew, have you searched the forum for "iPad"? It's a general problem.

Thank you Ronald, there is a lot of really helpful information there. We also
incorporated the iPad into our testing a few months ago so things should really
start to improve soon.
