Can't view received Yahoo Mail in FF 18 but works in IE - I have no add-ons no extensions also doesn't work in Safemode


I've tried all the fixes I could find on here and none have worked. I can view emails sent to me in IE but not in FF18. I tried safemode - same issue; I disabled all add-ons, extensions, and appearance - same issue; I restarted computer after each trial - same issue. So any other suggestion?

Additional System Details


  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0

Nope, that didn't help. I even restarted the browser after clearing and deleting all cookies.

I have figured out that if I try to forward the email message, I can view it there but without any formatting. Very Weird. Any help would be appreciated.
