I have windows XP. It has always automatically become a hyperlink when I hit the space bar after typing it out. I know about the icon in the toolbar that lets me make one, but I don't want to have to do this since I never had to before. I want to make it work automatically again.

First, you are running Firefox 7, which is EXTREMELY Old and Insecure, which not only leaves you open to many known bugs, but to dozens of known security issues which can be exploited to compromise your personal data.

So, your first step is going to be to upgrade to Firefox 15.0.1. Update Firefox to the latest version.

After that, does Yahoo Work properly?
