I can't sign into dailymotion, yahoo, youtube using the latest firefox and now it says I am not excepting cookies. I have to use IE7 to get my mails and stuff. I am getting frustrated. When I attempt to sign into my account it just goes back to the blank sign in sheet or says that my information is not correct.

Rich Johnson: I feel that you should create a new bug for your problem as this does not sound relevent to a yahoo mail problem. But, it sounds like you have a Firewall issue. Are you by chance using a software firewall like ZoneAlarm, Kaspersky, Comodo, etc?


alan: Are you still having this problem? And are you using the "All-NEW Yahoo Mail"?

Thanks guys!

I no longer can get to my Yahoo Mail using my Mozilla FireFox Browser.
When I click on Yahoo Mail, I get the following errors:
  "The page isn't redirecting properly."
  "Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete."
This was coincidental with 2 events:
  1. "I upgraded to FireFox"
  2. "I downloaded Apple SAFARI"
Before I read this page I was blaming Apple for the problem.
At least I can check my Yahoo Mail on SAFARI.
I hope FireFox fixes this (so I can brag it up again).
Clear the disk cache and the cookies (options/privacy) and if that doesn't work run firefox in the Firefox safemode : http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode
This bug was reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.3 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
