Note the junk at the end.

Do you have enabled "Resist Fingerprinting" if you check ‘’’Resist Fingerprinting’’’ on the ‘’’about:config’’’ page as this affects the user agent?

’’’Avast AntiTrack’’’ is also known to cause this issue.

Problem was AVG AntiTrack. There is a place in AVG setting to allow web address to not be anti tracked. Added yahoo mail and in exceptions and it started working properly. thanks for giving me the insight to understand what was happening.
