User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; en) Opera 8.01
Build Identifier: 1.0.4

When getting my mail from the Yahoo web based e-mail client, I click on the 
logout button, the screen refreshes but I stay logged in to my mail account. The 
only way it will let me no longer be logged in is if I shut down Firefox 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in to web e-mail at yahoo
2.Get my mail on log out. No logout

Actual Results:  
The screen refreshed but I stayed logged into my account.

this combined with another bug that will not allow Yahoo web mail to display 
correctly makes it so that I have had to switch over to Opera's free client.
Is this reproducable with a nightly build? (

Also, did this bug, and bug 300306 start happening at the same time? (spamed on
Exerpts from email:

I do not install nightly builds but it has been present in every
build I have installed including the latest version of 1.0.4
provided on the Firefox download web site.

The problem with not being able to log out has only happened in
the Firfox browser and only started a while after my upgrade
from version 1.0 to the first fix after the initial release.
However, it does prevent me from logging out even in the latest
official release.
works for me in Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.9a6pre) Gecko/2007060704 Minefield/3.0a6pre

Dwolfer, can you reproduce your reported bug also in Firefox ?
