Long time user of Mozilla....now a problem????

Mozilla is asking for my Verizon.net email password, which I enter, but the application says it is not right. If I access my e-mail using Verizon front end, it works fine. I prefer Mozilla front end to my e-mail; not Verizon.

Chosen solution

You probably need to go set the password security setting at the yahoo site. They are following in gmails example of implementing security hoops to jump through to use an email client like Thunderbird.
