How can we improve the Yahoo Sports?

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.

        The toolbar is incompatible with windows 8.1. Well **** then I guess I am incompatible for Yahoo.

      • chrischris commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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!

        IF YOU ARE DISGRUNTLED ABOUT THE CHANGES TO YAHOO MAIL, PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO MARISSA MAYER, CEO of Yahoo --
        http://www.change.org/petitions/yahoo-bring-back-the-old-version-of-yahoo-mail

        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!

        PLEASE remove "position: static;"

        From the following code:

        font: 16px Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
        clear: both;
        height: 50px;

        min-width: 958px;
        clear: both;
        padding: 0 16px;
        }

        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!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please give us an option of hiding the toolbar. I do not like it at all. Thank you.

      • John SlabinskiJohn Slabinski commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • DarinDarin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Can you please change fantasy football back to the old screen. The new one is awful, hurts my eyes and difficult to navigate.

      • Jeff PfeiferJeff Pfeifer commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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?!

      • RyanRyan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.
