Unable to download attachments from Yahoo?

Am running Firefox 7.0.1 in a Windows 7 environment. Am using latest Yahoo mail and suddenly I am unable to download any attachment. System appears to take me to Yahoo virus scanning window, I click continue which used to download item and it just vanishes. Have tried to force the download to ask for a location in which to save the attachment but it seems to ignore this. Has anyone got any brilliant ideas? What have I done that is stupid?

Yahoo is having general issues with email attachments. Nothing is wrong at your end. Try Binfer meanwhile. It can send large attachments easily.

Thank you for that I had thought it was me having a senior moment. Will wait to see outcome and get myself another email client in the meantime

Thanks from Manchester UK

This isn't a Yahoo problem. Using IE instead of Firefox provides trouble-free downloads. Firefox needs to fix this problem.
