Is this a server-side issue ?  I would check the browser ident string being sent from each version of Firefox, and spoof the NetBSD version to match exactly what the Windows one sends: my suspicion is that Yahoo does both browser and platform matching, and when it doesn’t see Mac or Windows defaults to mobile.
