When I sign out of yahoo mail with firefox, I am not redirected back to the main yahoo page. Instead, it looks like the page is trying to load but then I just get a blank white page. It still works fine with the same version of firefox on xp, but with w7 I just get the blank page. I am 95% sure this used to work fine up until a couple of updates ago. It works fine on IE.


PS: I am using yahoo mail classic.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to (or
2. Click on mail on the left of the main page and log in.
3. Sign out with link in top right corner.
Actual Results:  
Get a blank white page.

Expected Results:  
Should load yahoo main page or webmail log in page.

Am using "okarcio" theme.

Not sure if this could have security implications, ie. users not signed out of yahoo mail properly?
Is your Issue reproducible Extension-less in Safe-Mode and/or using a new Profile?

Issue is not reproducable in safe mode.

I think opened firefox normally and disabled Adblock Plus 1.3.3 and the issue went away so it seems it's linked to adblock.

*"I think opened firefox normally..."

meant to read "I then opened firefox normally.."
