My home page is Yahoo News. Today, every time I open Firefox the Yahoo page opens - briefly. Then Norton Security blocks the page. See the screenshots. This has happened more than six times so far this afternoon.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hi, that's strange. It seems like a "false positive" about a URL Yahoo uses to retrieve information in the background.

Could you try using the Back button on that tab to see whether it takes you back to Yahoo without triggering Norton again?

You may need to report this to them and see whether they can re-evaluate it.

I could not access Yahoo support - same problem every time, si I contacted Norton. Norton support checked everything, and did a reset of Firefox, and that fixed the problem.
