My browser in Pale Moon.

How do get rid of this problem?

TIA.

(Sorry if this has been discussed in another thread.
I looked for a thread about this but could not find any.)
Is it set to that resolution (1280x1024) in the properties menu ?

I suggest that you contact Yahoo's tech support and tell them what's going on. Perhaps there is a bug they need to know about. It might be that the site is expecting widescreen resolution.

I set the screen resolution using the NVIDIA Control Panel.

I still suggest that you contact their tech support. Yahoo might very well require a monitor with widescreen resolution to function correctly and whereas 1280x1024 is a higher resolution than what the error code gives you it isn't widescreen. Your alternative is to get a widescreen monitor or use an email client but there really isn't anything else that you can do. You might try their basic mail. Overview of Basic Mail
