Hello, I use yahoo (free) email and just today it started happening that every time I open an email after about 2 seconds it will redirect to a white page, but the url address bar says the same thing after it is redirected (or whatever is happening) and at the bottom where it usually says what is loading it says js.worthathousandwords.com

Anyone know whats going on?

Thanks

all emails, or just certain ones?

it may be something encoded into the email (say a javascript redirect embeded into an HTML document type email)

Not sure if a virus or spyware could do something like that.

It's a redirect with javascript. You can see the problem by enter worthathousandwords.com:

We are aware of a problem with Firefox and Yahoo Mail.

There is no problem if you use an IE browser to read Yahoo Mail.
Also a temporary solution is to disable JavaScript in Firefox.

We apologize for the problem, it is not intentional.
We have contacted Yahoo and are trying to fix the issue with Firefox as quickly as possible.Until the problem is solved you'll need to use IE or disable javascript in Firefox.

*pats himself on the back*

Not a totally correct guess, but damn close.

Oh god, you wouldn't think of putting me through such agony would you!?!?!

Just kidding :p It seems to be only some of the emails (I think it is depending on what ads show up) so I will just disable java when i need to.

Thanks guys :hug:

^ Cough... Don't like IE :mis: I understand :D

Use Opera 9.50 (http://www.opera.com/download/) :tmb:
