Can you open your browser and type "www.yahoo.com" in the address bar? Once you do that, does it show you the old page or does it redirect you to m.yahoo.com?

In that case yahoo is probably redirecting their traffic to the new site. There's not much you can do to change that asside from complaing to yahoo about their new site. I don't believe there to be anything wrong with your computer.
I hope that helps. :)
Thanks,
