Thank you Paul for coming to my aid. I have been tinkering with your suggestion and so far no luck. I read on the Flickr help page, if I kept my finger on the browser at log in, I can go onto a new tab. When I tried this, yahoo threw up security blocks asking if I was signing in using a new device and it asked me to enter an account key. I guess they have had a few scares and want to protect my account.

I am going to keep plodding on, or make do with photo bucket for the forum.

Thanks for helping. Have a great day.
All the best
