Hi, please let us know how we can improve Groups.

Today, the Yahoo Groups page layout is all messed up...

As it says, it is pretty much unusable. Photos have no icons for commenting or downloading or flagging. No "New Topic" button. Links over-run the page itself. See this image.

Also, been getting a "Showing only secure content" error for a while from IE.

    Same issues as seen in original comment. Groups unusable in this form. Clearing cookies, etc. no help.

    Yahoo, it is approaching one year since you've imposed Neo on us. When will the torture end?

    Its really annoying as I cannot respond to any ads. When you press reply you cannot send a response WHY!!!!!

    it looks like im not the only one with the same problem, as mine is just like the previous message. Is there an easy fix yet!

    It's a mess. All sorts of overlapping text and thoroughly nasty looking. Pretty much unuseable. If they want uys to stop using groups, they are going the ri8ght way about it!

    I finally got a reply from Yahoo. Sort of what I figured - must be YOUR problem, because we can't reproduce it. Do they not check this forum at all? At least 6 new posts in the last day about this issue exactly.

    This is what they sent - I've tried it all, and it is BS - still having the issue.

    I have the same problem - most buttons are "lost". And it HAS NOT been fixed yet.

    I'm sending new conversations via Yahoo Mail since I can't from the group page.

    Same problem. I found that if I set IE: Tools: F12 Developer tools: Document mode: to IE8 the page displays normally. This adversely affects other web pages, however, and must be reset every time I open IE. I have IE9 on Windows Vista.

    there. I have rebooted as moderator suggested, but can no
    longer post. How did this get fixed for you. Thanks. I post
