Yahoo Mail (where my e-mail account is) will not allow me to log on due to
BROWSER REJECTING COOKIE REQUESTS . . . or something close to that (winXP &
firefox 1.5 beta 1).  Here's my story it's sad but true.  P4 celeron@2.5Ghz,
D865GVHZ Intel Desktop Board, 496-"ish" Mb ram, Agree win modem dial-up 57k
netzero.  5 HDD's (each has its own OS  only one HDD used at a time)  bad virus
infection caused me to format & reinstall everything on HDD-3, Win XP OS, DL'ed
Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 & it ran will but I had to screw it up by downloading
MONSTER. INCOMPATABLE is an understatment!  WOW! I uninstalled beta 1 and
installed the latest stable firefox.  There were no latest headlines on my tool
bar . . . I love latest headlines, it's where I get my news.  So after several
uninstalls and delete C:\program\Mozilla Firefox and reinstalls.  Here I am,
using HDD-4 while HDD-3 has no latest headlines and no mail with beta 1
installed.  Suggestions would be appreciated as I just spent many hours
reinstalling/conmfiguring everything on HDD-3.
