  2. Searching "Oklahoma City Thunder"

    Can you change the picture that pops up to include current players? (like Russ, PG13, Melo, and the Big Kiwi) The picture that currently appears shows two former players. (James Harden and Cupcake)

  3. Repair the Yahoo Search App installed from Google Play Srore

    The Yahoo Search App installed on mobile phones, Android Phones and Smartphones installed from the Google Play Store completely stopped working on May 18, 2018. The Yahoo Troublehooting articles don't given any ideas that help fix the problem. Yahoo will not let us contact a Yahoo Specialist to get help with this problem. I know a lot of people that are having the same problem with the Yahoo Search App. It will not let us do any type of web search. Yahoo is not fixing the problem.

  4. Search engine in Yahoo Finance

    A piece of content that is on Yahoo Finance does not actually appear in Yahoo search results when searching by headline/title of story.

    Is there a reason for this, or a way to reindex?

  5. Firefox removed Yahoo Search! Please provide a prominent explanation to add it back.

    Just for all Yahoo users who want to use Yahoo search: Mozilla has chosen to WITHOUT WARNING remove Yahoo search from Firefox 52.7/59.0 and will yank your Yahoo search our from under you.

    It would be great if the Yahoo home page would add a prominent link with instructions how to add it back to Firefox.

  7. Search for "turkey ******" images without being warned of or -worse- shown adult content

    Yahoo is so intent on catering to peoples' prurient tastes that I can't even search for images of a brand of "turkey breasts" without being warned of adult content? Just using the word "******" in ANY context means I'm likely to get human breasts splashed all over the page and have to be warned -- and put through steps to avoid it?
    Here's my suggestion Yahoo:
    Come up with a computer program that recognizes words like 'cancer' or 'turkey' or 'chicken' in a sentence that includes the word '******' and doesn't automatically assume that typing "******" means I'm looking for…

  8. Why, when I log in to the YahooGroups, do all the groups come up in French?!

    When i log into YahooGroups and call up a group, suddenly everything starts coming up in French? What the heck is going on there?! for some reason, the system is automatically shifting me over to fr.groups.yahoo. Any thoughts?

  9. Mail Daemon Error for Bettie Scouts of America

    For the past couple of weeks, the Bettie Scouts of America is having problems with posts not getting delivered. They bounce back after several days with a a daemon error that it was in the queue too long and won't try again. A post has to be sent multiple times, hoping one will get through without getting lost in the queue. Since I can't report this directly, I'm listing the problem here. Someone in Yahoo's IT department needs to check why this is happening. Thank you.

  12. Mugshot Removal

    My name is Evan Falleur and upon searching my name, a number of mugshot sites show up regarding charges that were a false accusation and were dismissed last year. I was found innocent in a court of law. I have never been convicted of anything in my life and this is ruining my reputation. These extortion based musgshot websites need to go. It's illegal in most states.

  13. BUG: Change password page allows passwords that cannot be used to log in

    If you generate a new password using the "forgot password" page it is possible to create a new password (that is accepted) that cannot be used to log in via the website nor the Android app. You then have to go through the whole process again once you figure out why your new password doesn't work the next time you try to log in.

    For example (without quotes), some people recommend phrases rather than random characters, so something like this would be accepted, but not work to log in:

    "i forgot my Yahoo password 2"

  17. Provide knowledge bar on all searches

    Like Bing and Google, Yahoo search results will often have a "local knowledge panel" on the right side of the screen (above the ads). Our business has the following issue:

    When you search for topsider, the correct Topsider Homes knowledge panel shows up. If you search for topsiderhomes.com, the same. However, if you search "topsider homes" the knowledge panel doesn't show up at all, making it more difficult for those who are specifically adding a space and the word "home" to not have instance access to this knowledge.

  20. When you search "Megumi Yokota", in Yahoo, the sentence "Died:March 13, 1994" appears.

    While North Korea has not provided any convincing evidence about her death, the Government of Japan is demanding that North Korea must return her to Japen immediately based on the premise that all victims are still alive. therefore "Died: March 13, 1994" should be deleted.
