I had this problem, but I am at AVG Free-7.5.518, so may not solve your problem
Over at Mozillazine forum someone suggested that Email scanning be disabled . I tried it and hey presto I can receive messages from Yahoo via Webmail


AVG are aware of the issue and apparently 518 has been withdrawn

Hope it helps

For future visitors, I had the same issue after installing a new anti virus, Rising AV. T-bird had worked fine for years. After installing the new AV program, it would send mail fine but would time-out on its connection to receive. I disabled the email protection in the anti virus and T-bird worked ok after that.
What's more irrational--a guy who believes in a God he cannot see or a guy who is offended by a God he doesn't believe in?
