I use Yahoo as well, and I find that irritating too. However, it's the way
Yahoo programmed the page. You'd be better off talking to them as IE only
translates the page. Their feedback link is at the bottom right under About
You can Edit your favorites list, and reorder so that the "opening links"
are at the bottom, so that you don't trip them. Some of the links do not
expand (such as My Yahoo!), keep those at the top.
What I've found is to avoid hovering the mouse over the links until you want
to look (at Yahoo Mail, for example).
