Updated to latest Firefox, now can't forward attachments in Yahoo email

  1. XP Home sp3, latest Firefox, Yahoo, using "New Yahoo email"
    PC Tools Firewall Plus, router w/firewall, Avira AV


    I finally gave in and updated to the new Firefox just a couple weeks ago.
    Everything was working fine using the above applications before the switch.

    Now I have found that when I receive and email with an attachment and try
    to forward that, the attachment won't be included in the forwarded email.

    I can't find anything in Yahoo email menus, or it's Help section, about this other
    than it says that attachments will be automatically forwarded.

    I don't know if it's Yahoo email or the new version of FF that's causing the
    problem.

    Getting aggravating and frustrating to have to download the attachment(s),
    then reattach with the forwarded email.

    Thanks for any help!
