The new toolbar is not helpful.
The new toolbar is very obtrusive. If you are not going to get rid of it all together, maybe you can put it in a fixed position.
don't give me anything else just fix
get rid of the black bar
make yahoo simple, get rid of the bar thats popsup
remove this stupid sports bar that locks up the page so i cant scroll down
You have to get rid of this giant tool bar! If nothing else make it smaller.
It really gets in the way and gets bigger as you zoom in on your intended target
The updated page layout that forces an extra yahoo toolbar below the browser toolbar seems like an effort by Yahoo to force their toolbar upon us...even though we've had Yahoo toolbars available for download if we wanted them in the past. It is especially annoying on fantasy sports teams in adjusting the roster on a team with deep rosters because a player on the bench is difficult to substitute in to a position at the top of the page with drag and drop as those top spots are often now covered by this annoying toolbar. Sorry for the run-on sentence but vote this up to get this toolbar out of the way, please and thank you!
Dump the toolbar. Fire whoever designed it.
PLEASE remove the fixed toolbar (in Yahoo Sports). There was nothing wrong with the previous layout. In fact, it was much simpler, easier to view the pages on your website, and less obtrusive.
The new layout is causing me to now do ALL of my information gathering through other websites.
Hate hate hate the useless toolbar. Takes up space for NO reason whatsoever, and makes the page more difficult to read.
Toolbar is awful
CANNOT ACCESS TEAMS, STATS, ANY SUB SPORTS CATAGORY. HERES A IDEA, IN MY BEGINGING WEB DESIGN CLASS, WE WERE TAUGHT TO "TEST" OUR WEB PAGES ON DIFFERENT OPPERATING SYSTEMS, AND SEARCH ENGINES. WERE YOUR DESIGNERS NOT TAUGHT THIS "FINAL" STEP IN UPLOADING A WEBPAGE...ACTUALLY FALLS UNDER THE CATAGORY OF "TESTING" YOUR PAGE ODDLY ENOUGH.
bring it back the way it used to be or we'll go other sites
Nobody likes either one, but you seem to not give a good gawd damm.
You made stupid changes just for the sake of making stupid changes.
You can't feel proud of your failed accomplishments.
If you truly listen to your registered users - you'll end this madness
Toolbar on MyYahoo! - Are you not listening???? Get rid of it, or at least the Search field - many of us are ready to dump Yahoo over this issue!!!!!
Get rid of the toolbar! Or, at least, give the option of closing it.
I log in to check my team page and not have any obstruction while doing it. Also, my Yahoo fantasy baseball team page is difficult to use with a touch screen. Touch screens are getting more and more popular so I would recommend optimizing for touch asap
Please remove that top toolbar that takes way too much space of my very limited netbook screen.
I realize that Yahoo!, like any business, isn't making changes so their users will leave. There has to be a reason for adding that ridiculous toolbar, right? Do these unnecessary updates that come out of nowhere have a purpose? I realize that any time something is updated there are always people who dislike it. I personally hate Windows 8 but I get why it's there... I don't get Yahoo! Sports anymore. All I can think of is more updates and less info on each page means more mouse clicks. Hope it's worth it in the long run.. I'm going to see if my Fantasy baseball and football leagues will move to another site. I miss Yahoo! Sports 2010.
That gigantic bar with three items nobody every uses is the most annoying thing ever in yahoo history. and i've been using yahoo since 1995.
I don't need the ability to search Yahoo sports to follow me around as I read sports articles or check on my fantasy team. You need to add the option to hide the toolbar.
We don't need this toolbar. More harm than good. Def in the way and its always moving into my way. I don't even use it!!!
This new layout is terrible - change it back please.
How do I get rid of that monstrosity on top???
I don't like the new toolbar. When I scroll down if it would not follow me, that would be great. It's invasive at times.
Take it off
It needs to take up at least half the screen or people won't get that it's a just a practical joke.
Get Rid Of it!
Please get this g--d--- toolbar off the page. My life already has enough intrusive, annoying dreck.
please give me an option to remove this annoying toolbar
Bring back the original tool bar and classic email also. Why fix something that is not broken??????
PLEASE get rid of that annoying tool bar that follows you down the screen
PLEASE REMOVE. I will find other websites to use if this thing stays.
This sports toolbar is obtrusive and if it isn't gone soon you'll lose a lifelong fantasy sports user.
there's no real need for it, we all know we're using yahoo!
i would like an option to remove the toolbar. it's way too big.
Get rid of the ****** bar at the top that follows you down as you scroll down the page. **** of annoying....it limits your view of the page. And you guys are ****** sell outs with all your annoying ads.....especially in your emails....I think I'm going to switch companies.
It's obtrusive, obnoxious, distracting and serves me no purpose.
It makes the screen smaller, and is not useful.
Why? We know were using Yahoo Sports. Why shove it down our throats?????
Stop fixing what isn't broken.
Why does your site give me purple lines across my brand new laptop screen? Every time I scroll, I assume I have a *****. Then I see it's a Yahoo! page... and I realize that some update has changed something yet again, and made it even ****** to use. Kudos on alienating your consumers. I will no longer use Yahoo! for the last thing I was using it as soon as Oct: Fantasy sports. Beyond that, Yahoo! has consistently gotten as bad as everything else that is adding more bells & whistles than needed to their product. It's like buying a car that can't drive, but has a water cooler built into the front passenger side-seat. The new features are not worth it if they ruin the features that we actually NEED to use....
New toolbar needs to GO AWAY!!!
take off that scrolling search bar
1. Your comments section of your website has not loaded properly in Chrome in over a year. It used to partially load but not it doesn't load at all.
2. The top toolbar is incredibly large and annoying and should have an option to be disabled.
3. You also have not updated the Baseball stat-tracker in like 10 years.
Basically, my suggestion is that you fire your entire web development team, it will make the world a better place.
Can't access the top of the page, can't select sport of choice, can't hide toolbar. It sucks.
The toolbar that's been introduced at the top of the page is horrid. Waste of space, can't be switched on or off, and is intrusive to the real estate of conent on the page.
Either get rid of it, make it removable or lose a stack of subscribers.
Remove the new toolbar. It is annoying. OR allow the customer to turn it off.
Thank you for going back to the old look. However, the toolbar, no good. Also, why is there no hyperlink to MYYAHOO pages and where is the bell that tells you that someone commented or liked your post? Its gone. Please return it.
this is sooooooooooooooo annoying... i will go to another site
New Toolbar does not allow the current page to scroll at all! Fix it or get rid of it. I'm tired of the Microsoft way of introducing new features! Put out a finished product or don't bring it out at all! Thats one definate way Yahoo can improve themselves!
toolbar need to be BIGGER , i think it should take up half my desktop
If something works, stop changing it. New toolbar is a joke. Do you test these things before you apply them? Also stat tracker is still messed up... this is going on 2 years now.... Take your time.
Take down your f*#!@& toolbar!!! You already have a toolbar on the Yahoo home page. I will switch to another browser if you don't take this **** down.
Lose the space-hogging search banner!!!
What is with this unnecessary floating toolbar. Over the years that I have been involved with your baseball/football you have ridiculously slowed down my computer, especially when trying to do stats. I have told my Commissioner to go to ESPN instead. Also, at times, why do we have to wait to get the stats until afternoon for the games played the day before? Some games start at 1:00 p.m. you know. Whomever is running this show should be replaced. Sorry, but it is very frustrating. All I want to do is put in my team for the day and not take 1 1/2 hrs. to do so.
Get rid of the toolbar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
remove it. or let me remove mine
Oh my.. what are you guys thinking? This is horriable idea to have a floating search bar... It make hard to scroll up and down.
Please get rid of this toolbar it's terrible... you are going to lose site visitors!!
figure out how to allow scrolling and get it to be more appropriately fixed. and smaller. much smaller.
This header at the top with the search buttons is absolutely HORRIBLE, unnecessary, and useless. Get rid of it
Get rid of the scrolling Yahoo banner on the box scores. I do not need to be reminded I am on Yahoo Sports, I already know this. This is so annoying that I will go to the ESPN site if this banner remains in this fashion. Ultra annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
turn off toolbar. sheeze
Your sports pages are driving me nuts now. I can't easily scroll threw them once you changed to this all black header and footer. It seems there is some code preventing this. Once I try to scroll, it gets "stuck" and I have to scroll completely to the bottom. I am using IE 9. Have you tested these pages on IE 9 yet? Come on guys. I work in programming. This is basic stuff.
New toolbar sucks
The toolbar needs to go or at least be smaller and in a fixed position! It blocks my viewing area and isn't needed anyway. IT NEEDS TO GO!
I did not ask for it and do not want it. It is extremely annoying and takes up too much space. Please get rid of it immediately or I will no longer visit Yahoo!
You already removed it once, do it again!
The big info/toolbar is AWFUL, it's TOO BIG, it takes up too much space away from the real content & ads !!
REMOVE IT !!! IT SUCKS BIG TIME !!
get rid of the yahoo sports search bar hang down.
Get rid of the toolbar at the top of sports pages. I can't page down anymore.
Getting rid of the extra info/toolbar.
Buttons keep dissapearing
The toolbar is incompatible with windows 8.1. Well **** then I guess I am incompatible for Yahoo.
new toolbar does not update when removing icons, deleted the ones i did not want and tried to add new ones.
nothing happened, old icons still there and the mail icon still shows all the unread mail even when read.
The new toolbar wiped out most of my icons. However on an open window none are gone. Then there are some of my emails that are going who knows where. I rather distressed. Yahoo keeps changing and adding things for the better but quite honestly - all it did was ***** things up. Why oh why are you changing things again and again? LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE - IF IT AIN'T BROKE DON'T FIX IT - what else do you need to know? Oh maybe this one will get through to you idiots - I am going to open an account elsewhere!
Yahoo Toolbar is very USER UNFRIENDLY! YAHOO should look at the formats of competitors like VGrabber and / or Community Toolbars!!! A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT similar to Microsoft's useless Internet Explorer!

I miss the tabs!
IF YOU ARE DISGRUNTLED ABOUT THE CHANGES TO YAHOO MAIL, PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO MARISSA MAYER, CEO of Yahoo --
AND PLEASE Pass & Post this PETITION ON
Many of us have used yahoo mail for over a decade. It's been reliable, functional and served the needs of a wide variety of people - for personal and business use. Yahoo has changed it, taking away the ability to organize emails, switch from writing to reading emails without losing work, incorporating ads into the inbox (that, if clicked on by mistake, lead to spam websites) and hiding essential functions, like printing.Emails are being lost or misdirected, contacts are disappearing and Yahoo is not addressing these issues. Here's a sample of some of the comments made so far on the petition:
1. Contact lists are being deleted
2. Years of emails are disappearing
3. Deadlines are being missed because functions don't complete
4. A flight squadron couldn't get flight plans
5. A lawyer couldn't file a brief on time
6. Invoices are disappearing before they can be paid
7. Orders are disappearing before they can be filled.
Without tabs and multitasking, drafts disappear if you check an email. Users with visual impairments can't distinguish text, because of the font style and colors displayed.
This debacle is a disaster for business. We understand Yahoo is targeting the mobile market, and while we love mobile, we DON'T use mobile for business! 300 million people are being affected by this change. Investors and advertisers need to take notice - yahoo users are going to leave in DROVES if this isn't addressed.
We are asking Yahoo to restore the old version - with tabs, with the ability to edit an email and switch to a folder - to multi-task like we used to be able to do. If they are unable to do so, we want them to restore these BUSINESS-CRITICAL functions to Yahoo Mail.
Most of us picked Yahoo because of its interface. We don't like gmail! Please let us go back!
Yep - new mail still sucks.
Yep - new mail still sucks.
PLEASE remove "position: static;"

get Geno Smith's picture on the Kindle version of Yahoo Sports!!
Just turned on my laptop after several weeks of not using it. In trying to get to My Yahoo home page, I'm immediately sent to an AVG Secure Search page. I don't want an AVG Secure Search page ...... I want My Yahoo home page. How in the world do I get rid of this new page. I don't want it, I don't need it ..... I want it off!
Please give us an option of hiding the toolbar. I do not like it at all. Thank you.
John Slabinski commented
It almost seems as if you purposely made page unusable. It sucks and I'm sorry I paid for Yahoo fantasy football. Please include an option to use old style please.
return to the white please
thanks a bunch, yahoo. aholes.
Can you please change fantasy football back to the old screen. The new one is awful, hurts my eyes and difficult to navigate.
Jeff Pfeifer commented
I don't care about the look, but I HATE the functionality of it. The Facebook button used to take me to my FB page, now it shows me some of the posts and I have to click a second button to go to my page. And the new Bookmarks suck too. You used to be able to scoll through your Bookmarks, now you have to click on things. Several steps instead of one! How is this an improvement?!
I don't know how many people need to post on here for this thing to get changed back, but the new look is horrible. I can't look at it too long it makes my eyes hurt.
Please go back to white screen
