Yahoo freezes up, constant script errors. Pressing the continue button doesn't solve the problem. Added YesScript add-on today and still constant script errors. So, I tried refresh, haven't been back to yahoo to see if it works. In the meantime, ran a virus scan and 'cleaned' my PC and still constant script errors and frozen screen at yahoo. A bar appears at the top of the page telling me Mozilla is not responding. No sh&^. Help, Mr. Wizard, help!

I have exactly the same problem, and on a lot of pages, it freezes then a debug box opens and I just hit continue and waits till it sorts itself out.

I did try installing ad uninstalling to see if that might help, and its got a lot better, but its still happening, and this came after the latest update.
