      I made changes to my desktop computer on Firefox ESR, Palemoon and Cyberfox yesterday.
      Today when I went to sites to check email, Yahoo gave me a blank inbox page and Fastmail complained about cookies and javascript both of which were on and allowed.

      I then fired up my netbook and made a few changes at a time to see which change(s) might be causing the problem. I narrowed it down to 1 item.
      dom.storage.enabled
      If set to FALSE, I had the issue. Changing back to TRUE allowed the mail sites to load properly.
