Problems with attaching files in Yahoo Mail with Firefox

I am using Firefox 4 with Fedora 15. Attaching files in yahoo mail is not working. It did work with Firefox 3 and Fedora 14. I can attach files in gmail with Firefox 4 / F15 and I can attach files in yahoo mail with Google Chrome. It is just the combination Firefox 4 with yahoo mail that fails. Any suggestions what to look for to resolve the problem will be appreciated. I have also tried with all add-ons disabled and in safemode but this did not change anything.

I had the same problem running Windows and found that deactivating the Shockwave Flash plugin seemed to solve the problem.

Excellent. I disbled the Shockwave Flash add-on as you suggested and I can now attach files in Yahoo Mail with Firefox 4. Thanks for helping me with this problem :-)

Perfect! It was so easy to fix. I've had this problems for weeks now, and nobody - not even yahoo support has been able to figure it out. THANKS a lot!!

Hi have this problem and deactivating the Shockwave flash didn't help. Now I can't view any emails that support the flash either.

Same problem, disabled Shockwave Flash 10.33.181.34 and now it will attach files and send them with no problem.

Same problem with Windows and this "work around" does help but its not a fix for me as I require the shockwave plug in to view other web content. Enabling/disabling the plugin also isn't a very practical solution. Obviously, there is an issue with either Firefox, Shockwave or Yahoo. From various other Internet posts it looks more likely that the issue is with Firefox. Has anyone figured out how to get the three to work together and/or is someone working on a fix?

I have the same problem with Firefox 6 and the new Yahoo mail. Not an issue with the old yahoo Classic, and works OK on Chrome or Opera. The Flash workaround seems to solve the issue, but as someone else says it means that you lose out on some other sites. needs to be fixed.
