Unable to download attachments from Yahoo?

Posted

Am running Firefox 7.0.1 in a Windows 7 environment. Am using latest Yahoo mail and suddenly I am unable to download any attachment. System appears to take me to Yahoo virus scanning window, I click continue which used to download item and it just vanishes. Have tried to force the download to ask for a location in which to save the attachment but it seems to ignore this. Has anyone got any brilliant ideas? What have I done that is stupid?

Yahoo is having general issues with email attachments. Nothing is wrong at your end. Try Binfer meanwhile. It can send large attachments easily.

This isn't a Yahoo problem. Using IE instead of Firefox provides trouble-free downloads. Firefox needs to fix this problem.
