Can't move messages to other folders?

Overall I like the new format, but I cannot move messages from my inbox to other folders. What's up?

        This is what we get when we don't matter anymore. If yahoo really was interested in our feedback they would have gone back to the old version. YOU CAN KEEP YOUR OLD VERSION, PERIOD. Oh, I forgot, that was someone else. Wise up Yahoo, and give the people what they want.

        Moving messages works in Firefox, but not in Internet Explorer version 11. Very frustrating.

        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!

        I have been having the same problem ever since Yahoo switched to this new format. I have contacted Yahoo Help several times but none of their suggestions work. Now I keep getting an "yahoo cannot make a connection" message. This new format is HORRIBLE!

        now has happened and this this is the msg I get:

        We’re sorry, but Yahoo Mail can't load due to a temporary error. You can try back again shortly, or visit our help pages for ways to troubleshoot the issue.
        Try again
        Visit Help for troubleshooting instructions

        Temporary error: 4

        it works for me most of the times but then it suddenly hit the Temporary Message and I can move nothing.

        I do not like the new format and cannot move messages to another folder!
