Every once in a while, I go back and try something that worked in older versions of FF -- accepting some cookies and not accepting others.

In the current version, 59.0.3, I go to options, security and scroll down, I've added yahoo to my Exceptions to "allow" rather than "allow for session" and then set the general setting "keep until they expire". Now, this setup seems to be a way to whitelist only those sites I want to allow cookies, expiring others when I close FF -- as that's the most control I now have, the "ask every time" being gone. However, when I close FF and re-open, it hasn't kept the yahoo cookies as the exception implies it should.

How can I customize which cookies stay past the session and which don't?

I haven't changed anything in Firefox as I'm not too computer savvy but now Netflix no longer works nor does yahoo. For yahoo it says something about a date in the future. No idea what has happened. Have a Mac and haven't made any software updates, my computer is 5-6 years old and isn't even capable of being updated, or so it tells me every time I try and do updates.

Lately, only when using Firefox, when deleting massages in Yahoo Mail, the Yahoo Delete button becomes inoperable; refreshing the page helps only for a while then I have to refresh again. Why is this happening and how can it be corrected?

On June 7, 2018, Firefox Quantum updated automatically to 60.0.2 on my MacBookPro running macOS Sierra 10.12.6. Firefox is my default Browser and it is set to open on my homepage: uk.yahoo.com/. My Yahoo mail is now incredibly slow and I cannot refresh the page without a 30 second delay, if it works at all. In my Yahoo Mail, I cannot open any new emails quickly, I cannot move to spam quickly and I cannot go to trash quickly to empty it. It opens my Homepage, Google Search, Bookmarks and other websites quickly. However, while I am in my Yahoo Mail there are huge delays and freezes. Moving through my Yahoo Mail is slower that it has ever been. It seems to be operating at old dial up speeds. It is not delaying movement between emails or using the move to function by a few seconds but rather 30 seconds on average. It is painfully slow. I do not know if this is relevant but upon opening the URL box displays a green lock but after opening any email it changes to a black lock with a yellow triangle everytime. If it allows me to refresh, the lock goes back to Green. Several months ago, I changed from Yahoo Classic Mail to New Yahoo Mail. I am not using Yahoo Mail Pro that charges a fee for use. I do not know what to do. Last week when using FF quantum 60.0.1 I could not open any attachments. I still cannot open most attachments. It now seems to be hit or miss. I do not know if this is related to the Mail Slowness problem. Please advise? Many thanks.

The headers of each web page are too wide. Takes most of the space on my screen in comparison to the page body were the most important part of the page "the content" displays. I use Yahoo mail and the list of e-mails before being opened have very little space in comparison to the header mail. This means I can only see 7 e-mails at a time .Most of the page is used by the header and the sides ( a frame). I have search on Firefox Settings and no luck

Yahoo is showing up when I search. I've wasted lots of time selecting Google as my default browser.

Before this annoyance I was very happy with Firefox, now I'm going to see if I'm happy using Chrome.

Looks like you took a page from Apple & U2, another unpleasant foisting of garbage.

I'm so disappointed. And sad to stop using Firefox.

When I go to Images on my yahoo home page on Firefox, the images are tiny and there are a zillion on the screen. This only happens on Firefox, and only with Yahoo. For example - Firefox/MSN and EDGE/Yahoo, both work fine. Just not Firefox/Yahoo. It doesn't appear to be a search engine issue, because I've tried different ones with the same result. Picture below is a small section of the full screen I see. It's weird and just started happening a couple days ago. Any Ideas? Thanks much!

My searches using Google are interrupted and apparently sent to Yahoo... If I try to go back to the previous screen I am immediately sent back to the Yahoo search results. Sometimes screens like 'you are lost' or 'page not found' (but these are not the usual format) come up and I can only get back to the Yahoo search results from there.

Is this a known problem and what is the solution?

I am running Firefox 41.0.1 on Mac OS 10.7.5

When opening Yahoo, via the envelope icon at the upper right area of the page near the address bar, my inbox page is briefly flashed, but then immediately goes to a "compose" page without request. The "from" address bar is filled in with my email address, and the first line of the body of the email contains the address of the last website visited. Example: while visiting this page to post my question, I clicked on the envelope icon, and I was directed to a "compose" page with the Mozilla site filled in attached is a Snipped screen shot of that page.

This behavior doesn't happen when tested with Chrome. I can't say exactly when it started, but it's been at least for a few months. Searched the Yahoo forum but wasn't able to find any solutions there. Hope you can help - thanks.

The problem started a couple of months ago. I continuously get the error messages "unable to load your messages" and "external account is busy." Sometimes both pop up at the same time. After the messages occur when I try to delete emails it won't let me. Then I have to close out Yahoo email, open it again and I can then delete emails. Then the messages and routine starts again.

Since the latest Mozilla Firefox update (a couple days ago, I believe), whenever I open Firefox, I get a Yahoo search page that I do not want. If I go to settings and replace the Home Page URL with my desired web page, I am okay during that session. If I leave my computer and come back later and open Firefox, there is that Yahoo search page again.

How can I get rid of it for good?

thanks, len
