Clickable link in Yahoo Mail for Firefox 3

Whenever I want to email a link from Yahoo mail, it will not make the link clickable. It does in IE7, but not in FF3. I know about the add on of sharethis, but I would like this to work in Yahoo mail. I have color and graphics turned on.

What other extensions do you have installed?

It does work by default in Firefox 3, so I would first look at installed extensions which may be interfering with the normal functionality. As a test, temporarily disable all but ShareThis, restart Firefox, and see what happens.

I found what I have to do in FF/Yahoo mail is paste the link in the email, highlight the link, click the hyperlink icon, paste the link one more time in the hyperlink box, click ok, and now the link is a clickable link.

I just started using FF for the first time last week, so I only have what was downloaded from FF as a startup. Researching for a solution to the link problem is how I found sharethis.
