    Win 98 and Yahoo, problems

    Anyone know of an issue with win 98 and yahoo ?

    Seems like every other time I go to yahoo mail, my system locks up.
    Can't even do ctrl-alt-del, have to hit the switch.

    Is this a known problem ? any fixes ?

    Exclamation Win98, Firefox and Yahoo! Mail

    I have the exact situation. I have deleted all user directories related to Mozilla, Netscape and Firefox, uninstalled, deleted the program directory and reinstalled a couple three times.

    At best, I can last a short while in Yahoo! Mail before it locks up. It use to be that it would lock up two pages into it. It used to lock up while loading a page. The last time was while I was composing a mail message (about 15 minutes into a lengthy one of course ) and not while a page was loading. Hmmmmm.....

    The only thing remaining to do is to tweak the registry. I'm not willing to do that unless someone can point to a specific entry to tweak.

    Is that someone here?
