Is there any way to keep s.yimg.com from freezing the screen?

I know s.yimg.com is a Yahoo site that apparently is used for downloading images. But as often as not, it causes the screen to freeze when I'm trying to load the Yahoo home page on Firefox. Usually I have to wait a good 2 minutes for the home page to load when this happens. It may be a Yahoo problem but is there anything within Firefox that can be adjusted to cure this? It doesn't seem to happen with other browsers.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?
