    Not sure about this Mr Lensbaby, but have you installed any software lately that gives you the option to install a Yahoo search bar? I don't know much about Macs (presuming that's what the topic title means) but if you're using Windows you could try Add/Remove Programs to see if there is anything Yahoo there, then uninstall it. You can also use the Extension Manager in Firefox (if you use it) to remove the Yahoo! Toolbar extension:

    1. Click the "Tools" menu in the Firefox browser.
    2. Click the "Extensions" menu item.
    3. In the Extensions Manager window scroll until you find the Yahoo! Toolbar extension.
    4. Click the Yahoo! Toolbar extension.
    5. Click "Uninstall".
    6. Click "OK" in the "Uninstall Yahoo! Toolbar" window.
    7. Exit Extensions Manager and restart your browser.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Wakaleo but its a MacBook I have a feeling its from a recent unwanted Firefox or Flickr update

    Its not a tool bar that needs removing its a POP up

    Do you have a Yahoo e-mail account?
    If yes then for some reason it is trying to Logon. This may be a result of the update. You will need to find how it is being set to logon and disable it.
    If no then follow Wakaleo's advice because it will have been from the update.

    have you tried asking this on the mactalk forums? They are good over there in relation to all things Mac/i/apple

    Possibly Yahoo IM trying to log on when you startup the machine, and then when it can't log in it keeps asking you to enter the p/word
