Hi Tgordineer,

This sounds like a known issue reported here:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=713014

There was a workaround posted, but I've not tested it myself. Here are the steps.

  1. Go into Yahoo Messenger Options - Change the Window in the dropdown to Tab and press OK.
  2. Then go back and switch it to small window and press OK.

Once the bug is officially resolved, you could try running a Nightly or Aurora build to use the fix early.

Hopefully this helps!
