I can still use Yandex (and mail.ru) extentions in Firefox. So I realy dont know whats the problem here. Yandex certainly is a very good search engine (and mailprovider).

Anyway...I am still using it. If you want i can put screenshots in here to proof it...but actualy I dont care.

How about that? I did not know they both had extensions. They are still listed in the Firefox Browser Add-ons site. Basic proof as I said earlier this is a PR move to virtue signal with the rest anti Russia crowd. that and it did not remove Yandex from my search.

I am using Yandex as my default search engine. It was Brave but search result are limited. I agree that Yandex is a very good search engine.

Well, the Release Notes from Firefox for version 98.0.1 say this:
Quote:
Yandex and Mail.ru have been removed as optional search providers in the drop-down search menu in Firefox. If you previously installed a customized version of Firefox with Yandex or Mail.ru, offered through partner distribution channels, this release removes those customizations, including add-ons and default bookmarks. Where applicable, your browser will revert back to default settings, as offered by Mozilla. All other releases of Firefox remain unaffected by the change.

That may be what the release states; however, that is not what I observed. My Yandex search was not removed.

Sorry to have bump this up.

I'm recently interested in using Yandex Disk as my Google Photos replacement (as Yandex provides unlimited photos and videos upload from phone). However I'm kind of skeptical because of the tension around the world versus Russia, the origin of Yandex.

As a matter of fact I'm not located in the US so can I say I'm relatively "safe" to use Yandex Disk after all? I plan to use solely for media upload and not their email although I had registered for one long long time ago which is still valid today (surprise surprise). I really hope the war had not started and I wouldn't have any worries to use Yandex like I'm now.

My question to the floor: is anyone still keeping their Yandex account and actively using it? What's your opinion on this?

I closed my yandex account a few weeks ago. Wasn't using it much and I wasn't comfortable with it any longer. I had no complaints.

Personally, from here in the USA, I wouldn't touch Yandex. Certainly not for anything critical. I only use the biggest, most stable, and most trusted providers for photo backup.

Cool. I guess it's not blocked unlike in the US (I could be wrong). Or Yandex in general is not blocked anywhere in the world (yet)?

Glad to know! Are you using the mail only or both mail and disk? Is using mail even a good idea given that the mails sent would possibly be rejected by any other providers out there that place Yandex in their blacklist?
In other words, did you ever encounter your email being rejected?
THanks for your valuble input!
