After 13 months, persistent Firefox/My Yahoo! bug finally squashed

After nearly 13 months -- longer than the lifespan of most biological insects -- a persistent bug in the interaction of the Firefox browser and the My Yahoo! home page has finally been squashed. This blog first wrote about the issue last September, which surfaced when Yahoo did a forced upgrade to a new home page.

The problem: when Firefox users clicked on an article on the home back and then attempted to navigate back to their My Yahoo! home page, they would lose their place on the home page which would reset to the top of the page. They then had to scroll down the page to find where they left off, making for a very kludgy browsing experience.

With the recent release of the latest version of the browser, Firefox 3.5, the problem appears to have been finally resolved.
