    My Yahoo inbox stopped working while trying to open an attachment while using Mozilla Firefox.

    After using the Chrome web browser to switch my acocunt to Yahoo Basic Mail, and refreshing the page, my Yahoo inbox remained frozen.

    However, I am able to use my inbox and download the attachments from Chrome.

    Downloading an attachment takes 2 clicks.

    To download an attachment first click Save, then underneath click the Download File: link after that attachment has been scanned by Yahoo.

    If you still can not download your attachment with any web browser, try using a mail program on your computer, such as Mozilla Thunderbird, to get the attachment out of your Yahoo Mail account:
