Cannot access yahoo mail and any other yahoo websites with firefox since updating to newest firefox version. Page remains blank forever. However Yahoo works with IE. 
I reinstalled firefox with no effect, i followed the compatibility tip and set it to win2000 with no effect. I dont seem to have a malware according to Kaspersky and Adaware2008. Everytime i try to access tools=>options from firefox command bar, firefox switches off.

1.Access Yahoo! URL
Actual Results:  
No response, no access

Expected Results:  
to access page and yahoo mail

This should be in Firefox - General for now. I'm not sure how to solve your problem, but you can also try asking for help in the Live Support chat - .
Component: Disability Access → General
QA Contact: disability.access → general
Version: unspecified → 3.0 Branch
You can try 3 things:
As first step clear the browser cache using tools/clear private data/[x]cache
As next step you can run Firefox in the Firefox safemode (just start it without checking a checkbox there) :
and if you still have the problem create an additional test profile:
