Question about Mozilla Firefox

Firefox and Yahoo

Why won't my yahoo page load through Firefox? It works through Explorer.When I go to My Yahoo page, after it loads, I see nothing. I have removed cookies, remove and reloaded Firefox, I even asked Firefox for help, but it was so frustrating and yahoo only wants me to use the question and answer format through waiting for post. I am tempted to go back to Explorer. If I had not kept IE on my computer, I would not never see this page.

    It appears to be an intermittent problem. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. At times I'll go to my Yahoo Mail page and there is no formatting... Everything is lined up on the left... Sometimes it happens in Yahoo Classic mail, and sometimes it doesn't... I've tried all the "clear cache" etc., messages, and sometimes it goes back to working and sometimes it doesn't... It is a mystery...

I can get into yahoo mail but when I click on my inbox I get a loading sign and nothing happens

you can try optimizing your browser. if you're using internet explorer, click on tools > internet options. on the middle part of the general tab, under browsing history, click on delete and make sure you delete all temporary internet files and cookies. if it doesn't work, try another browser like firefox (download it for free at or google chrome. if you're still having the same problem, then the problem is with yahoo.

Unable to load yahoo page ..

Sounds like a dns problem.<br><br>press "widows key (Has a flag printed on it)  r" then type "cmd" then type "ping"<br><br> it should give you something like this<br><br>Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:<br><br> Reply from bytes=32 time=51ms TTL=49 <br>Reply from bytes=32 time=53ms TTL=49 <br>Reply from bytes=32 time=58ms TTL=49 <br>Reply from bytes=32 time=51ms TTL=49 <br><br>
Ping statistics for<br>     Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),<br> Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:<br>     Minimum = 51ms, Maximum = 58ms, Average = 53ms<br>
<br><br> you need the number.  (May be different on yours.) Now take that number and put it whrere you usually type in firefox.  If it works its a dns issue and it is usually the service providers end.  If it doesnt work then reinstall firefox.
