Have you tried Firefox3.5? It's in ports as www/firefox3-devel.
I just tried Yahoo! and had no problems.
I tried yahoo with firefox3 on 7.2-RELEASE-p2 amd64 without problems.
The problem is not restricted to firefox or yahoo.com. There are other
sites too where this happens. I built Galeon from ports, and it shows
exactly the same behaviour as firefox2/firefox3 for those sites. So does
Epiphany (installed from the distribution media).
I doubt whether firefox-3.5 could solve the problem. This seems to be a
problem with a core library in X or one of the graphics libraries.
Are your ports up-to-date? Use portsnap(8) [first time: 'portsnap fetch
extract', afterwards 'portsnap fetch update'] to update your ports tree and
then portmaster(8) ['portmaster -a -B -d'].
If your ports are up-to-date, try rebuilding libX11 and the ports it
depends on ['portmaster -f -x libX11'].
I traced the problem. It's related to flash. When I disable the
flash plugin, Firefox works smoothly.
I suspect a lot of sites are using a new version of flash, which
doesn't go down well with the existing browsers.
I run portsnap and portmaster through a daily cron, so the ports
directory is always up-to-date.
