Yahoo email reports "No Internet Connection" after Webroot scheduled scan.

I have a Webroot scheduled scan set up for 3:00PM EST everyday.

At that precise time my Yahoo email account pops up a message “No Internet Connection” and I cannot get anymore email.  The message is not correct because I have other tabs open and I still have internet connectivity. (BTW: If I start a manual scan this problem does not happen).

I am using Firefox - the only workaround that I have found is to got to the Firefox Settings->Privacy & Security->Cookies and Site Data->Manage Data then search for “Yahoo” and remove them.

This will cause Yahoo to ask me to login again. Once I do that then Yahoo email works again.

Why is the Webroot scheduled scan causing Yahoo to drop my email connection??
