website redirecting?

Not sure where to post this but here it goes. Whenever I try to go to www.yahoo.com in Firefox I get redirected to http://us.m.yahoo.com/. I don't have this problem using IE but I don't like to use it. I am not trying to access mail or anything, just the front page. Does anyone else have this problem or have an idea how to fix it. I have used the clear private data thinking maybe it was a cookie or something but it still redirects. TIA Jen

How ironic!  Have you recently installed any new add-ons or toolbars?

I've been randomly losing the ability to enter text into my URL bar, and found this.  The problem most users are complaining about sounds more like what you're experiencing.  Even if it's not that particular add-on, it could be something new you've installed.

The website thinks you are on a mobile phone.
