Getting this error on Ancestry.com web site: Yahoo.widget.Overlay is not a constructor, Ancestry advises me that you will need to fix due to Win7 update
The last 2 days when I log into Ancestry.com from my desktop computer, the home page gives me an error message of "Yahoo.widget.overlay is not a constructor". I've called Ancestry's help line and they inform me that other Ancestry customer's are having the same issue with Firefox browser. They further said that there was a Windows7 update and that Firefox will have to fix this issue for sites that use widgets such as Ancestry.com. I do not have this issue when I use Internet Explorer to access Ancestry.com. I prefer to use Firefox, so please fix as soon as possible.
Thank you for your assistance.
