Whenever I click a link at a Yahoo blog, it pops up this window, which won’t let me follow the link unless I grant Yahoo permission to run a Facebook app.
If this is some new policy at Yahoo, I’m done with anything related to Yahoo forever.
I hopt it’s just some strange bug that’s only affecting me. Is this happening to anyone else?

Also happening to me. Annoying as fuck.
