I have a problem with Yahoo mail. Suddenly I can’t upload attachments, tried using latest Update for Firefox , but the problem didn’t solve until now. Any solutions please?

What's happening when you try to upload those attachments?
Does the same thing occur if you launch the application in Mozilla Safe Mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode

not sure if it's related but yahoo recently announced they had a massive hack over 3 billion accounts (all of them) it's quite possible it's been disabled by yahoo if they're doing some house keeping

Yahoo only announced the 3 billion hack recently but it actually occurred back in 2013 and, while doing housekeeping after being aquired by Verizon, they realized that their original estimate of 1 billion was wrong.

The attchment issue is more likely to be something to else but it wouldn't hurt to update your Yahoo password and security questions.

I just checked my yahoo account and while I use t-bird for email's I could write a new email and attack a local file to it
it's most likely something on your side check to see if javascript is enabled
