Cannot log in to yahoo mail in firefox today (no "login" in url), but works in safari.


Today Sept. 16, I cannot login in yahoo.mail in Firefox. FF seems hacked. This is the (wrong) url that appears when I click "mail" in Yahoo: https://mail.yahoo.com/;_ylt=Ai0RTQfmsGA_ah5UaG9jErqbvZx4?.intl=us

This is certainly no login url. I noticed only after my login failed. I can login to yahoo mail normally in Safari, today, so I've been able to access my mail.
