Hi, I just recently purchased a new Mac and it's version 10.7.4 which is Lion and not Snow Leopard. Apparently, Blackboard hasn't tested anything for the new system. I've tried to access Blackboard with my current version of Safari but I can't access it because it keeps saying that its not validated or it's not supported. I've downloaded an older version of firefox but for some reason when I check to see if it's compatible the window doesn't say the browser is good enough. I was wondering if there was a way to fix this and how to access Blackboard on this computer? Any help would be great.
If you are getting that kind of browser checker warning, it's likely that your school is using an older version of Blackboard. There is a list of compatible/supported browsers for most Blackboard versions on this page:
You may want to talk to the help desk at your school to find out if there are other browsers that may also work for you, or if the browser checker may need to be updated.
