Hi Gary wish I could help you,
The page looks similar to the Internet explorers New tabs page or frequently visited sites page can you confirm where these lists are located ?
Cheers.

Thanks,
In that case it seem to be a compatibility view issue or document mode issue,
Unfortunately I know nothing about these options in Firefox,
Internet explorer I would use the F12 key and switch manually to test,
I'll also assume this is only happening in Firefox and you've tested with another browser,
I'm pretty sure even in Internet explorer Yahoo.com might need to be added to the compatibility view list,
Gear symbol/ Comp-view settings.
Cheers.

It also happens on Palemoon 64 Bit but that is a Firefox clone. In IE 9 it does not occur. I can't seem to find any info on this. It even happens with all extensions disabled.

Gary I have tried it with Pale Moon and IE10 on my My Yahoo page and don't see them. They look like image placeholders, but I have none in those places.

Have you run a battery of security/malware scans? I'm thinking if you recently installed something it's some sort of a toolbar, maybe.

Seems firefox.. just aren't rendering the headers properly,
I wouldn't expect a virus but just a cache problem,
I'm not sure how to do this in Firefox though,

It is interesting,
Any time I've seen anything like that it was in windows 8,
Meaning the little squares indicate other options are there,
Have you Uninstalled Firefox ?
