Default Yahoo Web Page

Beginning yesterday, the public Yahoo web page (www.yahoo.com) appearance changed completely when using Firefox. Yet is looks exactly as it always has looked when using Internet Explorer. Until yesterday, the page looked the same on both browsers.

What would cause Firefox 35.0 to display the same content as IE-11, but in a completely different format? Thanks for any replies.

I just installed FireFox 35 and they both look the same to me. What are you seeing that is different?

Did you go to www.yahoo.com on both systems? For some reason FireFox took me to a different page and I had to put www.yahoo.com in the address bar to make it go to the home page.

The web pages contain the same information and links and news, but it is in entirely different locations and in different formats.

Last evening, my computer did its weekly cleanup, which includes getting rid of a bunch of cookies. Today when I used Firefox and got to the Yahoo site, it looked just like it always has in the past, and the same as IE-11 displays it.

I can only conclude that a very recent (Thursday?) Firefox update placed or eliminated some cookie, and with the cleanup everything is back to normal.
