The Yahoo! web site has a page which has a link to a page where a Yahoo!
Messenger group can be renamed.  This functionality does not work in Firefox on
OS/X.  I suspect that the problem is either a Firefox Javascript problem or a
Internet Explorer specific function call being made in the page's script.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Set up a Yahoo! Messenger account
   a.  download, install and setup application
   b.  add a Messenger group names "Friends" and add some users to it
2.  In Firefox, log into your Yahoo! account
3.  Click on "My Account", enter password and click Continue.
4.  Click on Edit/Create Profiles
5.  Click on your account name link
(you should now be viewing<your account name>)
6.  Click on "Rename This Group" next to one of your Messenger group names
Actual Results:  
An error message is displayed:

   The requested URL /edit/add/rename.php was not found on this server.

Expected Results:  
I expect to be able to edit the group name.
