What is Gecko?

Gecko is the open source browser engine designed to support open Internet standards such as HTML 4, CSS 1 and 2, the W3C DOM, XML, JavaScript, and others.

Gecko is used in multiple browsers, including Mozilla Firefox, SeaMonkey, Camino, and others. Gecko is continuously under development at mozilla.org. Gecko has been known previously by the code names "Raptor" and "NGLayout"; the new name was chosen following a trademark infringement dispute.

For more information see the Wikipedia article on Gecko.

Re: like gecko ios

Did you find a solution to your 'like gecko' problem?

If so, please let me know.

'Like gecko' keeps appearing as logged in to my Yahoo account and, coincidentally suddenly, NO EMAIL (neither Yahoo nor other accounts) is downloading to my iphone.

My 'like gecko' problem seems to have started about 36 hours ago.

Please help!!!!!!

Gecko is part of the web browser you're using, not someone that has compromised your account. 

 

Are you able to sign into this account from the Yahoo website via a laptop or desktop? 

If so are you seeing new emails coming into this account?

What happens when you send email to this Yahoo mail address from another account?

Are you using an mail program on your laptop or desktop to access your email?

Is your laptop or desktop running Windows or using the Mac OS?
