To add:
This is one of those standard cop-out suggestions, but very occasionally it does work:- delete all Flickr and Yahoo cookies before trying any proposed solution.

This problem is starting to annoy me!. (in the sense that I can't help, I mean). I don't use Flickr myself, but you could try posting on this thread and give them some earache, the public visibility of it might help.

Did they give you a direct link to a page to reset the password?. Otherwise I was wondering how you reset it without being logged in.
They sent me an email with a click here to reset password. What the password has to do with it, I dont know! Followed the procedure then went to flickr to try n log in, but useless. Its nowt to do with the password really, just sends me round n round, tried reregistering, change password, rubbish. The email had a respond thing so I had another dig and told em "Goodbye"
Somebody on one site said try imgbb. Went through joining procedure yesterday, we will send you a registering email, live only for 48 hours. They havent sent one................... >:(

Just one more stab: do both of these together:-

In Firefox, try incognito mode (File -- New Private Window...) - this will act as a virgin browser and not use any stored cookies, passwords etc.
Disable any adblockers in force (or whitelist Flickr).

Flikr owned by Yahoo, or used to be and they got hacked so now their sites are super tight with passwords.
