This is a weird & annoying problem. Its happened enough that I had to post it here. When I use my Firefox browser (my default) it seems to have trouble with YAHOO features. It crashes almost every time I use it w/ Yahoo Mail. I can read my mail but if I go to move mail into different folders it almost always crashes FF completely. It just happened when I was looking up something on YAHOO TV. I went to TV listings & bam it crashed. YAHOO is the only place that causes they problems. I now do all my YAHOO stuff using IE. It doesn't have any problems. I have a lot of extensions added to my FF like "NoScript" could that be causing the problem? I have the latest version FF install as well.

Try running in Firefox diagnostic 'Safe Mode' for a while.
This disables all your extensions & uses the default theme. Might have a little conflict going on if you have many extensions.
Enable each in turn to find the culprit, restarting Firefox each time.
See the list of Problematic Extensions.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

I had a customers computer that had problems with Yahoo TV, turns out it was actually a video card driver issue. Updated that to the latest release and the issue was resolved
