Firefox 3 beta 5 released. Yahoo Mail is still broken.

Firefox 3 Beta 5 release today. Release notes and downloads here.

Installed it as soon as I got to know today morning and the first thing to check was whether Yahoo Mail still crashed. Initially, Yahoo Mail seemed to work alright for all of 50 seconds – quickly moving over items in inbox caused Firefox to crash 😦

Guess will wait for some more time. I’m sure there’s a bug report somewhere on this – Yahoo mail was broken on Beta 2, got fixed in Beta 3, then was broken in Beta 4  and is still broken on Beta 5.

Will wait for it to be fixed – Any idea if this is a firefox issue or a Yahoo! issue? Seems odd that script can cause the browser to crash so badly.

  1. Does anyone know if a defect has been logged in Bugzilla?
    I too was disappointed that it’s still not fixed in Beta 5.

    No browser should crash even if scripts are the problem.

  3. Fire fox 3.5 here too, on my laptop yahoo mail is broken. It doesn’t crash fire fox, the scripts just don’t finish running.

    Weird thing is, this happens on my laptop; on my desktop I have firefox 3.5 too, with the same plug-ins even, but there yahoo mail works perfectly fine.
