why won't firefox open my yahoo email page???? i get a 'bad request' error message in the tab?

i have been using Safari on my MAC... it sucks so i have just downloaded firefox 6.0.1. My main email site is Yahoo. I just tried to use the email notifier on my firefox and i get the error message: Inbox toolbar can not be installed because it is not compatible with Firefox 6.0.1?????? this is basic stuff? am i doing something wrong? if the notifier won't work, so be it... but, my MAIN question is... what does 'bad request' mean in the firefox tab??? everytime i try to go to Yahoo mail to retrieve my mail this message comes up and the page won't load... it stays totally blank?

I have the same problem can't figure it out, in the meantime I installed IETab and got it to work that way, it's not a permanent solution but for now it's an option

i finally got everything from my Safari browser i wanted imported to Firefox after a lot of juggling... i redid my import preferences and used the sync application. i can't be too specific because i was going around in circles for awhile.... not sure Firefox is much better than Safari (maybe a tad faster) now that it's all changed over.
