The latest version of Firefox won't allow me to go to Yahoo's web mail site (https://mail.yahoo.com/). If you do, you get this error (attached as a pic, plus here's the text):
Your connection is not secure
The owner of mail.yahoo.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.
This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.
You have two buttons, "Go Back" and Advanced. "Go Back" just takes you to the previous page, if there was one. Advanced gives you the following additional info, but with NO ability to add an exception:
mail.yahoo.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)
In other words, until (if?) Yahoo fixes their site certificates, I have to use IE or Chrome to look at my web mail. Firefox gives no ability to proceed to Yahoo's web mail site. I did a chat with AT&T/Yahoo support, and they ended up telling me, "It's a browser problem, use a different browser." This is a total drag, since I see both sides of the problem, know that Yahoo should update its certs, but realize that isn't going to happen anytime soon.
Yeah, I could display the page in IE Tab, which I'll probably do at work, but at home on my Mac there is NO version of IE Tab, so I have to stay at Firefox 43 until/if either Firefox or Yahoo makes the necessary change.
Anyone else know a way to get past this?

I now live too far away to get Comcast and its generous data allowance, so I now pay Verizon (a lot) by the gigabyte, and, if I'm not careful, go over my 30GB package. What I find makes the difference is setting FF to delete all cookies when I close the browser, which I have to do whenever I leave the PC. I used to browse (w/Comcast) at will and used 15-25GB. Now, if I inadvertently leave the browser running, something will eat up 8-10GB even when I'm not actively using it. Any suggestions on what I should pursue? TIA Don

With thanks to John99 who suggested this new thread:
First, both my banks have offered Rapport for the past few years. They say they advise it to prevent against online fraud. I would like to do as they suggest, but Rapport does not work since Firefox 41.
I have two PCs running Windows 7, Firefox browser, Kaspersky Internet Security, everything updated daily. Rapport console says Rapport is running but no icon appears on toolbar and when I log in to both my banks, they invite me to download Rapport even though it is already there and running.
I have spent hours trying to fix this. Last month Rapport's chatline told me they will fix it sometime, meantime I should use another browser although Firefox is used by 20% of internet users. Rapport does work with Internet Explorer but I do not wish to use IE, still less Google Chrome because of Google's incessant and increasing spying.
Rapport did suggest downloading latest version but its auto update does not work. Rapport website does not give its current version, it is necessary to download from Rapport site and choose Properties to determine the version number. When I did this last month I found that auto update was not working. Today Rapport control console says that version 1507.105 is current, I select “check for update” on the Rapport console and it confirms that 1507.105 is current, but when I go to Rapport website, download Rapport and check Properties I see the current version is 1507.109. Still does not work.
I'm sending copy of this to my banks. Maybe they can get some sense out of their supplier who doubtless charges them plenty.
