My.Yahoo switched Comics content

I use Yahoo personalized as a portal and have a few tabs configured at my.yahoo.com.
One of these had 2 comics, well not anymore.
The following was just posted to the support of yahoo.com:

I am using firefox 3.5 on Mac OS X 10.6.1 Snow Leopard for my.yahoo.
I read 2 daily comics, "Garfield" and "Non Sequitor". Yahoo recently switched the comics module, to "GoComics". This does not work for me, I currently have a screen resolution of 1680*1050 (iMac 20"), might switch to a higher resolution (1920*1080 or more, iMac 21.5 or 27). The Comics are too small be read (by me). So with the old module I opened the comic with a simple click for each comic in a new tabulator. WIth the awkward interface of GoComics I have to click a few times to watch a single comic bigger, then go back to the other comic and click again to watch it bigger. Also I open Firefox with quite a lot of Tabs (20), and the GoComic-Content is not always loaded. I use NoScript and Add Block as Addons in Firefox, but have tweaked them, so it is no problem with the yahoo-content and the comics from GoComic.
I currently have removed the GoComic-Content and have added new Tabs, with urls directly to the daily comics from Garfield and Non sequitor.
I just want you to know, that this GoComic-Content is not functional and awkward. You did not do yourself a favour by switching to it. The old way was better. Other users might be put off by it, like me.

If I get an answer or a solution I will post a followup.
