- I have a handful of yahoo email accounts and this problem exists within them all.
- My computer at work has Vista and my computer at home has W8 and this problem occurs with both desktops.
- I use Mozilla Firefox primarily.
- This issue ONLY exists in Yahoo mail. Hotmail and others work just fine.
When composing an email, I set the cursor in the address box, I can't type anything, nothing. No button on the keyboard will enter a character in any of those fields. This problem also occurs if I try and type in the 'Subject' box or in the email body. Nothing works.
When I try and close that tab, it does nothing. Clicking on the 'X' does not close the mail tab.
Notice how you can see attachments listed on this email...(I used IE to get this screenshot)
When I'm viewing that very same email in FF, the attachments are not in view...
Notice in the images above that I have a draft saved. When I try and load that email to continue the draft, here is the error that Yahoo give me. Also, I tried to click on the 'Switch to Plain Text' feature, nothing. It won't react. Notice how I don't have any of the rich text tools; they did not load either. When I try and delete the 'Re:' in the subject line, neither the 'delete' button or the 'backspace' button will remove text.
So, different desktop machines, different locations, different operating systems, different Yahoo mail accounts. Thee only common thread is that they are using FF 18.0.1 and trying to navigate Yahoo mail.
What could be causing Yahoo Mail to be inoperable from either computer's browser?
