Thank you for your direction! I guess it's the Yahoo problem. Filezilla stopped working at about the same time - but different issues, I guess. Google IM seems to be working fine! 

Thank you,

I'm posting this to the pidgin support list, you obviously replied to me 
direct in error.

Then you need to follow the instructions here: 

and once you have the .repo file installed then do a "yum update 
pidgin" and that should fix it. 

Yahoo doesn't work because the protocol has been changed. You're also 
running a very old Pidgin version. Not to mention a very old Fedora 
version too.
