Yahoo mail freezes after a few commands on 28.0 but not on 27.0.1

more options

I am using the newer one at the office but apparently haven't updated at home. Both are running the latest release of Win7 (64 bit).

The mail software really does stop responding after 4-6 commands, just about any commands. Buttons stop working, etc. If I reload with the recycle command, it goes back to the inbox list and will again work for a few commands before freezing again.

I haven't tried it with removing plugs and addons yet.

Am I the only one having this problem?

I posted on the other thread and suggest this one be closed. So far, it's working fine in safe mode which means it's not a Firefox problem but an add-on or plug-in one. As I noted in the other thread, that means I have to now do a binary search through those, sigh.

If the issue is caused by an add-on, AdBlockPlus seems to be the only add-on that both you and the other user with this issue have in common.

You do not need to disable this add-on. This add-on has an option to be disabled on a specific website. This can be done to keep the add-on active on other websites.
