Like you, I have Firefox as my default browser but remember that Internet Explorer is interlinked with Yahoo Messenger and used to operate everything from signing in to picture share, webcam control and games etc.
For this reason it is important to keep IE up to date including the support software FOR IE that keeps Messenger running
The software required to run Messenger is
1) IE
2) Flashplayer FOR IE
3) Shockwave player for IE
4) Java
Use the links on this page to update
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/notices/mstabuguqscripterror.html

Sign in - check in sequence and try after each.
1) Check IE is not set to 'work offline' in tools it should have a red cross through the globe allowing internet access
2) On the sign in page > Messenger > Internet Preferences.
Make sure the information in the lower 2 boxes is correct - if not use the drop boxes to correct > Apply > OK
If the info is correct toggle between 'Direct' and 'Proxy' > OK
3) If you are NOT using dial-up > IE > Tools > Internet Options > Connection tab > LAN settings - uncheck everthing except the 'automatically detect settings' > OK
4) In the event you can access Mail but not Messenger > IE > Internet Options > Connections tab > LAN settings > Check the Proxy box > Advanced - paste in this address in the 'secure' box and 5050 in the port box > OK

    Start your troubleshooting with clean browser(s)
    Download 'ccleaner' and use it daily. Run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
    Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.Never make changes to your Registry without saving the information.

    If you use firefox as default and run ccleaner everyday you will see how much work IE is doing in the background.

Click the Messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."

Enable the "Firewall with no proxies" option.

Select the correct Internet connection type and country from the pull-down menus.

Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the OK button.

Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

The above configuration works in most situations. (However, if you connect in this way, you won't be able to use the Voice feature.) If this configuration doesn't work, follow these steps:

Click the Messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."

Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the OK button.

Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.
After this steps and this still not solve it. You can check and set your I.S.P and Proxy Server. here are the steps.If neither of the above options work (sorry), you're probably behind a firewall or proxy server that requires you to enter its address. Follow these steps:Click the Messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."

Enable the "Use proxies" option.

Enter your firewall or proxy server's address and port number. Contact your network administrator (if you're at work), or your Internet service provider (if you're at home) to determine the correct firewall and proxy settings.

Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in with your new proxy settings. Click the OK button.

Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

If you try all of the steps above and Yahoo! Messenger still can't connect, contact your network administrator, Internet Service Provider (ISP), or the person who initially set up your computer to ensure that your firewall and/or proxy settings are correct

My yahoo mesengger can't sign in..Sign in problem..can u check...

SOURCE: cannot sign in yahoo messenger

It may have 2 problems and 2 solutions:-

Firstly, this error occurs when your connection preferences are notproperly set. I'm not talking about your Yahoo! ID and Password here,but you may need to adjust certain features depending on what networkyou're on. Let's says for example, if a firewall protects your network,it may block yahoo messenger when it tries to connect to the server.You need to change your connection settings, click the Messenger menuin yahoo messenger and select Connection Preferences. Select FirewallWith No Proxies. Select your Internet Connection type from thepull-down menu at the bottom and enter your Home Country if theseoptions aren’t grayed out. Click OK and login again using the newsettings.If this option doesn’t work, click Connection Preferences inYahoo! Messenger again and select No Network Detection. Try to loginagain using the new settings. In some instances, you may need toprovide yahoo messenger with the IP address of your firewall or proxyserver (you can get this information from your network administrator orfrom your Internet service provider). Click Messenger and selectConnection Preferences again. Select Use Proxies. Enable either theHTTP Proxy or the SOCKS Proxy as needed and provide the proper address.Click OK and login again using the new settings.

Secondly, if you are using IM9 there are sign in problems. This is whatyahoo has to say.Try an updated version of Yahoo! Messenger 9.0(9.0.0.2128). This latest build includes a fix for the sign-in issuesthat have been affecting some users. If you were seeing an error code“81003005” when trying to sign in, this latest version may fix thatproblem. Even if you were experiencing a different kind of sign-inissue, I recommend installing this latest version.

Hope it can be helpful!
If you satisfied with this information, please do support me...
Thank You!

If you are talking about error 81003004... just go to the icon "messenger" and then click "connection preference". Click the "connect directly to the internet" click this even though it is highlighted and then click apply and then OK. Hope this help for you.

Fire fox is killing my connection to Google, how can I fix it? also I like to use fire fox for some sites but the fire fox download fills my page with unwanted add ons, how can I ceck just Fire fox...


To disable all of Firefoxs add-ons, you have to open the browser in its Safe Mode by clicking Start > All Programs > Mozilla Firefox > Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)
If that won't work, then you will just gonna have to uninstall Firefox then download and install a fresh Firefox from Mozilla.

Mozilla Firefox

Sir my yahoo messeng cant sign in plz slove this problem


You just can't sign in easily and or it will take you some time before a successfully log in to yahoo messenger if the version of Internet Explorer that comes with your windows operating system did not meet that recommended compatibility with the version of your yahoo messenger.

The best suggestion to solve this problem... is to upgrade the version of your Internet Explorer to version 8 (it's the latest). It doesn't matter if your using other web browser like Mozilla, just upgrade Internet Explorer.

Then unistall your yahoo messenger and install its latest version too, Yahoo Messenger 10.

Sign in pbm in yahoo


I no longer use mozilla, but I think it probably has something to do with your internet settings. Is all other browsing okay? Do you use other chat or messenger programs? I would go to Internet options or settings, wherever that is on mozilla (on internet explorer, it is on the toolbar under "tools") and have a look and see what your settings are it could be that you have a setting that prevents use of messenger or chat services. It may be in your securtiy settings or your content settings. Also, you might check your virus control program to make sure that settings there have not changed. You will find a section there for internet settings where you can stop viewing of certain sites. Something may be stopped there.

If this does not help, can you get to yahoo (email or messenger?) You may have to get a new ID. not fun I know, and we will leav that as the last option.

Please let me know if this does not work for you. I am going to go have alook at the mozilla browser again and see if I can help you more.
