I initially had a problem getting Firefox to open the page from digikam 
but in openSUSE Tumbleweed I had to ensure the correct Firefox was set 
as default in KDE System Settings, now that is done it opens the Yahoo 
login page.

However I still have a problem in that whatever I do to set the correct 
login details the page gives an error message saying Error: Service 
temporarily unavailable, however when going to the Flickr site and 
inputting the correct credentials on a virtually identical screen it 
works perfectly.

So for me this still does not work.
