On the 
page, in the upper right corner, there's this "In the News" section
with several links, or with a "More ..." link at the end
of the abstract. 
SOMETIMES, but very frequently, say 50% of the cases, when clicking on those links
I am not getting the expanded article
This does not happen under Netscape 4.7x under Linux. 

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Point Mozilla to http://www.yahoo.com
2.Go to the "In the News" section in the upper right corner
3.Try to read the articles under the links there, and repeat several times.
Say: "China to send human into space Oct. 15"

Actual Results:  
The articles did not expand to the full text version, 
in at least 50% of the attempts.  
A banner or something like that shows up, with 
no text related to the article. 

Expected Results:  
Show the full version of the article referred to by the link. 

Netscape 4.74 under Linux shows up correctly those articles. 
Also, a previous version of Mozilla (don't remember which), 
didn't have this problem.
