Yahoo mail works fine w/ Firefox

Sounds like Yahoo just has an issue with Firefox. Use Thunderbird instead (or just change to a different mail service)

I just created a Yahoo mail account to test it to see what your issue might be.

It works just fine for me (either using my real UA with Firefox under Linux; or with the UA spoofed to Firefox under Windows.

I created test messages using their web interface and sent them to another account, and I did not see any issues with it.

That's to be expected (as it would be very odd if a service as large as Yahoo mail didn't support Firefox).

So, it sound like something else is wrong with your configuration (perhaps a problem with a plugin or extension, something wrong related to your Firefox preferences, or similar).   If you're using something like noScript or have something limited javascript in your settings, that could be your issue (as those types of pages are going to rely heavily on javascript).

Anyway, I don't see any issues with composing Yahoo mail using Firefox under Linux.  It works just fine for me.

The What's My User Agent website shows that switching back and forth works, although IE10 self-reports as Mozilla 5.

IE 10 is supposed to report that way (Mozilla 5.0).

You'll see the same thing if you're using the real IE 10 when running Windows.
