Can't compose/reply on Yahoo email 1/19/13

All day starting 1/19, cannot compose or reply, just receive -- BUT, that's only on one laptop; on my other (older) lappy Yahoo works fine and I CAN compose/reply.

When I open Compose [takes 2 clicks and has Send and Cancel lit up(?)], it won't let me type anything in the To, CC, Subject, or Text fields -- the cursor doesn't even blink. And yes, both computers have the newer Yahoo mail upgrade. Is this the Java bug thing going around?? Thing is, the lappy where all's working has the newer Java that's supposedly under attack recently (7.update9). The lappy where I can't compose, etc., has an older Java version, v. 5, which I read was supposed to be safe from the bug. Confusing in any case... I've read many comments at this site --
--about people this month having the very same trouble.
Any help? Thanks. This persists even today, Jan. 20.
