Issues with Yahoo Mail tab CLOSING after download
Since the most current Firefox update in June 2022, when in Yahoo Mail and downloading an attachment, as the download complete, the Yahoo Mail tab is automatically closing, requiring I to go to 'History', then 'Recently Closed' tabs to re-open it. This happens Every.Single.Time I download photos and scanned docs from email. Again, this has never happened before - only with the recent Firefox update. I have 2021 a MacBook Pro.

I also have this problem with Firefox 104.0b4 (64 bit) under Ubuntu 20.04. It started randomly some time ago, but now it closes the yahoo mail tab every time after download an attachment.
Same problem with Firefox 103.0.2. I have a 2020 Flagship HP running Windows 10 Home.

I have this problem as well starting about a month ago. I restarted with no add ons running and the problem still exists. I even changed setting for downloads so none open automatically. So now I go to the download folder and open the attachment, any kind of attachment, and when I close the attachment window, yahoo mail closes. I've even gone to the mail tab while in the attachment, then closed the attachment and it still closes the yahoo mail tab. Not having the same problem on a Windows 10 Pro machine, but using a different yahoo email address so not exactly the same.

I am having this same issue. I noticed that when downloading multiple files in a row, I am able to get through 4 sometimes 5 downloads before it closes out so I tested it a bit. It seems that it closes out in about 30 seconds weather I download 2 files or 5 files. When I download only 2 files and then wait out that 30 seconds it closes. If I hurry and download 5 files, it closes after 30 seconds. It doesn't seem to be an issues with the number of files downloaded. I thought maybe it was seeing rapid downloads as spam or a security issue but downloading 2 files in 30 seconds shouldn't be an issue! This is a major problem for me because I take a lot of pictures of things to sell, then email them to myself and download them into organized folders so they are easy to find/access when creating postings to sell the items. I don't use chrome, I've been a die hard Firefox fan for at least 10 years now. Since yahoo is filled with spam and requires upgrading to Plus at $5 a month in order to block more than 3 domains.... I think I'm going to try Outlook. I have 5 emails... 3 gmail and 2 yahoo. If I can get them all set up in outlook, I'll go that route. Outlook is great for business but a bit overwhelming for personal use. This really bums me out! I've been such a big fan of Firefox and Yahoo but they have both let me down big time over the last few months. This is a known issue and has been happening for several months now. A few minutes ago I was alerted to update firefox and got all excited that maybe the yahoo issue was fixed in the update... but it wasn't :(
Can someone from Firefox at least acknowledge this issue? Is this even being looked at? Is this a FF issue or a Yahoo issue?
