As a check, have you tried using a live Linux DVD with firefox from there (most Linux live DVDs are using firefox 60 or later).  This will check if the new twitter requires a firefox version later than the one we have.

The new Twitter layout is atrocious.  Looks like it was designed by a 10 year old.  You may need to do it on a different OS with a more recent web browser but you can switch back to the old Twitter under settings.

Here, with JavaScript blocked, it suggests using the legacy page, and then takes me to https://mobile.twitter.com/. With JavaScript enabled, it displays the login page and as I don't have or want an account, I gave up.
Wouldn't be surprised that it is broken but the mobile page referenced above may be a workaround.

Thank you all.

This method can not be used because there is no way to lock the configuration with the latest changes.

The OS / 2 version is too old. When will the Qt browser be? (ArcaOS 5.04 will not even appear :'(.

It is impossible even if it connects from here.

Poking around it seems to work for some OS/2 users, see https://twitter.com/os2world.
Have you tried a new profile or safe-mode? My latest build?

I can log in and view Twitter only if I use the default theme in Firefox. I'm using Nightly 45 SUa2. Then if I try the new design, it goes back to "Sorry! We did something wrong." It will probably work again after my login expires.

By default theme, do you mean the nightly theme that Nightly ships with?

@nayo, my latest builds are at https://bitbucket.org/dryeo/mozilla-os2/downloads/. Recommend the Pentium M SUa2 unless you have a CPU that does not support SSE2, in which case there is a i686 build.

Using the OS4 kernel and the FFSandybridge version, I have no problem bringing up the twitter home page.  However, the mobil twitter page gives me a sorry message.

I can see it with firefox.
I tried using firefox-45.9.0.en-US.os2-i686-Sua2.zip, but it was an error.
Are the conditions different depending on the connecting country?

Twitter may have different pages for different countries or regions.

Yes, the one labeled "Default" on the add-ons screen. My logon expired, but I still could not see my pages until I used the link nyoa posted above.
