MyYahoo weather not able to display

MyYahoo has a 'weather' application. It has stopped working. I've tried safe mode (it still fails). I've disabled my anti-virus software, it still fails. It works in Chrome, Edge and Opera, so it would seem to be a Firefox issue. I am running Firefox 83.0 64-bit. Any work-arounds or resolutions?

Chosen solution

I ignored the 'computer safe mode' advise because it is started happening not just on my personal computer, but on 4 others in my home. And low-and-behold - it is suddenly working this morning. Guess? ==> Firefox did not update, so it has to be the way Yahoo Weather interacts with the browser. It appears that Chrome, Edge and Opera were not affected, so they must handle things differently. ==> This would lead me to believe that Yahoo changed something.

In and case, it now works.

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Did this help?

While you are in safe mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

I already tried safe mode. Disabling hardware acceleration and clearing cookies and cache did not work either. I also turned off Enhanced Tracking Protection - still a no-go.

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?
