There are many bugs open on problems with Yahoo's site. Take a look at reports like this http://www.broadbandreports.com/shownews/59492 (incredibly most sites which allow comments on news items concerning Google gather an enormous number of insulting comments, so read critically). Note that gmail accounts are readily available from URLs like http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=226625&postdays=0&postorder=asc&postsperpage=15&start=15 In the short term, you might want open a web based email account with a provider who has the will and the means to evangelise the Firefox core.
If Firefox's official position is that you should "open another email account with someone who bows down to us", then I'm going back to IE. Browsers are tools, not religions. Get an attitude adjustment and make the browser compatible with major sites. Yahoo has market share, you don't. -Corey

Recently users see this after upgrade to 1.0.4 from 1.0.3, see Bug 294057.
I have also had this problem since upgrading to ff104. Here is a work-around I have discovered: 1. After the blank screen comes up, I use my Yahoo toolbar and select "Compose a Message". 2. When the mail form appears, I then click on "Cancel" followed by "Check Mail". 3. If the Mail screen is still blank (about 60% of the time), I repeat the process. This second cycle brings up my Yahoo Mail screen almost 100% of the time. After that, I have no problems so long as I stay inside the Yahoo Mail section. What I have taken to doing is launching a separate ff window, setting up Yahoo Mail in it, and then using another ff window for my tab-browsing.
When the problem started for me it would happen 50% of the time. Just a refresh would pull up the page. However over time it got worse and worse. To the point where I could refresh 100 times and I could get the page loaded. However recently without doing anything the problem has gone away. Now I could load the page with no problem. I did not clear any cache, reinstall or upgrade. It just works when previously it never worked.
If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox and add-ons please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
