I have used My Yahoo homepage for as many years as it's been around. Firefox and its predecessor Netscape have always loaded my specific (personal) My Yahoo homepage after the 1st time I logged into it. Now, these latest iterations of Firefox will go to the generic My Yahoo page and force me to log in to My Yahoo each time I start Firefox. That really sucks! By the way, the evil one (Internet Explorer) and the new kid (Chrome) go straight to my specific My Yahoo page without wasting time by making me log in.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Name a specific My Yahoo page the homepage. 
2. Start Firefox
3. Up pops the generic My Yahoo page which makes me log in before Firefox loads my specific My Yahoo page.
Actual Results:  
Generic My Yahoo page loads, requiring me to log in to my personal My Yahoo page.

Expected Results:  
Gone straight to my personal My Yahoo page.

Flashblock? I just discovered that I had to whitelist my banking Web site ( in Flashblock to get it to stop asking me my enhanced security question every time I logged in. Perhaps the submitter of this defect is also using Flashblock and Yahoo! has similar Flash-related technology on their site.
