I've never used Yahoo! chats, but are they Flash based?

Try upgrading your Flash Player if that's the case.

What version of Yahoo Messenger are you using? The current Mac version is: ver. 3.0 build 156957
I know I had crashing problems with the older builds, but just downloaded the this one a few days ago and that fixed the crashing problem.

You might also try moving your current version to the Trash as well as the preferences before reinstalling:
"Your Home Folder"/Library/Preferences/com.yahoo.messenger3.plist
