This started happening when I upgraded to FireFox 4. FireFox three was a dog! What do I do revert back to FireFox 2?!

There's lots of noise about this on the net but no answers from FireFox!? Jeez! I'm using Google Chrome to get to my Yahoo! email. This is a pain. Please fix!!! --and an add-on is NOT a fix!

Keep ignoring this and I'll be forced to switch to Chrome with lots of others.

Please fix as I prefer Yahoo!.
