I had this very same problem with a computer: Safari wouldn't
load yahoo and stalled when trying to pull info from l.yimg.com. So I
installed Firefox. And it worked...for about 3 weeks. Then it quit. Same
thing. So I installed Google Chrome. No access. Three (3) browsers, same machine, no
access with the "connecting to l.yimg.com" flag in the corner.
As I was surfing for answers, I found one post that mentioned SonicWall 2040 as the culprit. We're running a SonicWall TZ210w at this site with the Comprehensive Gateway Security settings in place--including AntiSpyware. When I turned off the AntiSpyware piece, all of the browsers blew right through and brought up yahoo with no problem.
My final solution was to set the two IP addresses I found associated with l.yimg.com as allowed and I turned on the AntiSpyware function again.
If you use it, I would remove Sonicwall from the configuration temporarily and see if its a sonicwall issue.
I'm not sure as I didn't spend a lot of time on this, but my suspicions are that something being delivered by Yahoo from those servers is seen as spyware. If you're having problems getting access to Yahoo AND you're running some type of spyware tool, turn it off or disable it.
I also have a report that a small cookie may be the problem.
Tanto70010, if you look cryptodan up in the dictionary, it says cryptodan (noun): A very smart cookie that can be found on the bleeping computer irc channel.

For this new yahoo mail interface go to the compose mail, you will see a tab for attachment (with an icon like a paper clip). When you click on it, it will bring another tab below with the word attach files. Click this also, it will bring a dialogue box for files to select from, then browse as usual.

s.yimg is a server for yahoo mail and is part of the yahoo mail process. First, make sure your internet browser is cleaned up. I like a product called cleanup from stephen gould. http://www.stevengould.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=15&Itemid=69
Another popular product is ccleaner. They both will remove cluttered temporary internet files and cleanup cookies. This may help your slowness problem. Another thing to check is your DNS. I like to add Google's server 22.214.171.124 into the dns settings.
