Firefox is my most used browser though, as of late, as the browser won't open my emails when clicked. But the browser does work with other web pages and links within them. Its only in Yahoo mail where this is happening. I must open IE Explorer to read my emails currently (but I don't want IE for browsing). Yahoo mail in Firefox will work initially upon entering the site then the trouble begins after a few successful clicks. This problem started about a month ago.


I like to blame it on Yahoo as I hate their update. Another problem I have with their 'improved' mail client email is when I create a link in an email message (by selecting the URL and clicking the Link icon) the entire message becomes the link. So I send URLs as plain text.   Why do I stay? Most all of my several hundred User ID's have the yahoo mail address as a login. What else to do??


Anyway, the freezing is what irks me at the moment.


By the way,  Yahoo Contact/Help is of no help even if they decided to answer my plea, instead choosing to send a pre-formed response.

I have two Yahoo accounts. In the past month I have noticed constant changes in their website pages....including email. Several times

I have seen their messages alerting to difficulties. So users like myself can only wait until the 'difficulties'/ issues get resolved....
