I have the same on a regular basis. I circulate information to about 500 addresses for 5 organisations. My mailserver is frequently blocked by Yahoo servers as a spammer. Fortunately, it's a big company and the block usually lasts less than 48 hours.

I surprised anyone is allowed to criticize Yahoo! on this board.

I have noticed that Thunderbird is showing Yahoo Mail password login problems a few times in the last couple of weeks here. This problem is....intermittent.

I can easily login to the webmail version, apart from the repeated caution the browser shows each time.

It is firefox that makes the system crash/freeze, people are reporting similar issues in Devuan, Artix, ...
I didn't use Mozilla anything for a while but lately I tried it again and had such issues. On one installation I went with Firefox-ESR which seems fine.
On Devuan I snicked into Debian-Sid and pulled FF56 ... no problems with dependencies.

But I think pale-moon is a good browser to avoid Chrm/FF. Thunderbird has had several issues and security problems as well.
Qupzilla is based on Qt and qt seems to be getting infested with systemd crap.
