User Help for Mozilla Firefox

I am having a problem when I try to load my home page, which is a "My Yahoo" home page. In my main MAC user account everything works fine. However, I just logged in to my kid's account, and when I access my home page, I get the following error:
My Yahoo is experiencing some technical difficulties. Click OK to reload your page.
I can see my page in the background, although it is somewhat "greyed out". If I click OK once I get the same message, if I click it again I get a "400 Bad Request" page.
I cleared the cache and restarted FF and my computer but I still get the same thing.
p.s. I am using Leopard 10.5.6 and FF 3.0.6
Umm, probably because yahoo is "experiencing some technical difficulties"? things happen on web servers.

Try safe mode http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode This will turn off the extensions and themes. If that works post a list of the extension and someone might see something.
Also, if you are using a content blocker you might want to turn that off briefly and see if Yahoo works.

Absolutely, but that doesn't explain why it works from one account and not the other.
I will try the practical advice given by loudnoise.
OK, I tried launching in safe mode and I still have the same issue.
I do not have any content blockers on.
From the problem account, I tried accessing "My Yahoo" via Safari and that works fine so it looks like the problem is FF related.
Try clearing your cache and Yahoo-related cookies.

Just curious, are you running accounts with Parental Control? I had the same issue, and when I disabled the Parental Controls, everything went back to normal.
I get it too. First time 10 days ago. Second time today. At first I was afraid of an infection, but MBAM and ESET found nothing. Here's what it looks like. I can't believe that Yahoo would actually use something like this an tell you to click a button. Very Trojan-like.
