All of a sudden every time I try to sign in on Yahoo mail I get a warning "We've noticed some unusual account activity" and I have to get a text (which I pay for individually) to get a code to continue (the code I get by email which would not cost me anything never works). I have no problem when I use Microsoft Edge. What is happening and how can it be fixed.

Did you verify in Private Mode browser firefox that it wasn't a Addon caused issue?
I haven't done any addons and my husband doesn’t get the message when signing on to yahoo with the same computer.
Email verification now requires either another email server account to verify the login or text. As to why in Firefox you should check your security software setting to make sure it's not causing something to affect Firefox logins to yahoo. And that problem did you at that time switch to Edge to login to verify that it was working during that time?
I have been signing on to my Yahoo account in Edge to avoid the problem I'm having in Firefox. And, as I said before, my husband is able to sing in on Firefox without getting the message I am. That means it can't be a security setting since he would have the same issue.
Was this on the same computer or different computer?
As I said in my second response to you, it's on the same computer.
OK, are you two using the same account on Windows to login to the yahoo email?
Are you asking if we have the same yahoo account? No, we have separate accounts.
