When I access GitHub on Windows XP with Firefox ESR 52.9.0 (32-bit)
the website greets me with "GitHub no longer supports this web
browser. Learn more about the browsers we support." (the second
sentence being a link to
https://docs.github.com/en/github/getting-started-with-github/using-github/supported-browsers
)

When I click on "Sign in" and then on https://github.com/login enter
my account credentials, I can login as usual (and the warning banner
about the unsupported browser goes away).

After that the "experience" is not overwhelming, I see more spinning
circles/hour glasses than any actual content on the starting page.

But opening https://github.com/Perl/perl5/issues works and it looks
"normal". On a sample issue I can type in the comment box but
clicking on "Preview" does nothing (haven't tried to actually send
the comment).

Logging out doesn't work, as the pulldown at my avatar only say
"<Hourglass> <Warning Sign> Sorry, something went wrong."


Cheers,
gregor
