Constant Confirm Close Message popping up while typing e mails
While typing e mails I keep getting the "confirm close" message pop up evey 30 seconds while in the middle of typing the same e mail.
(See message below)
This is constantly happening and I do not know what to do to stop it.
It is very anoying and a distraction while typing an e mail.
PLEASE HELP ME & E MAIL ME A FIX TO THIS PROBLEM
Your message has not been sent. Do you want to save it in your Drafts folder?
Save DraftDon’t SaveKeep Writing
Are you aware of the problems we're having with your latest Yahoo Mail version? The "Confirm Close" dialog keeps popping up, often several times while composing one message. Also, everything is noticeably slower---e.g. opening mailboxes and sending messages. (It sometimes take up to a full minute to do the latter.)
Just wondering, is anyone working on this? Thanks, Andy
The incredibly annoying "Confirm Close" box pops up every 30 seconds for no reason while I'm typing an email. Please make it stop!
The problem started in 22.11.2013.
The problem is "Annoying pop-up window asking if I want to Save Drafts, Keep Writing, or Close"
It is verry verry annoying.
A lot of people are having this same problem.
I cannot write an email because the "Save Message, Delete Message, Keep Writing" message window keeps popping up every 10 seconds!! Sometimes it's 60 seconds. Sometimes it's 30. It is MADDENING!!!! It started over the weekend. I have powered down. Logged off and logged back on several times without any luck.
It is going to be a lot of work to switch to another email provider but I am coming to the conclusion that I am going to have to give up on Yahoo! Mail as it has become a huge aggravation and it is getting worse and worse as time goes on. Now Yahoo! is constantly annoying us with the "Confirm Close" pop-up while you are trying your best to concentrate on composing an email. Someone at Yahoo! needs to be slapped in the face. I have been with Yahoo! Mail for over 14 years and have never experienced such chaos and abuse as what we are currently dealing with and have been subjected to over the last three months. It is absolutely time for heads to roll at Yahoo! Mail.
The addition of a constant "Confirm Close" message that is essentially meaningless to the writer is bad news. Yahoo's revamped e-mail web site is the best thing that ever happened to Google!
Not sure what should be listed under but Confirm close or any pop up to continue writting or Confrim Close is very anoying
Please permanently turn "off" that Confirm Close window. What a hassle! Don't want to ever see that again.
Confirm Close message pops up if I'm navigating between emails. I'm working between several emails at once (NB. This is why TABS was such a useful feature). This is becoming bonkers, please try and sort it out
Seriously, what the f. What is wrong with yahoo? Who in THEIR RIGHT MIND started this confirm close business. My poor son with AUTISM is trying to write an email and is FREAKING OUT because he can't do it without being interrupted every time he stops to THINK about what he is writing. are you kidding me?
What's up with the pop up when writing emails. Every 30 seconds or so it asks me if I want to save, send or cancel. It's really annoying!!!!
When I'm ready I will save or send. I don't need a pop up asking me several times during the course of writing an email!
I am also getting the "confirm close " pop up . very, very annoyingl. please help me stop it!
There is a Confirm Close message that keeps popping up as I write an email. It's super annoying.
"confirm close" message keeps on popping on my screen automatically (about every 30 seconds) while I'm writing...
What a stupid thing!! get rid of it and please tell me how to avoid it. It was great before you changed it, It had a button save as a draft--now I have a bunch of stuff saved as a draft I don't need. Cant you just leave it alone except for security update--I really liked how it operated before now I have tou use my aol or gmail account to get anything done.
Please reply with cure for this insane feature. Thank you!
Please get rid of that annoying feature or at least allow us to control the timing or just shut the **** thing off.
I HATE that every minute that the email is AUTO SAVED a pop up comes up asking if I want to keep writing. IT IS THE WORST FEATURE. if not removed, I will switch to using my gmail acount.
Your message has not been sent. Do you want to save it in your Drafts folder?
Get rid of this pop-up! How can you possibly think that one would want to write an email and have this “pop-up” every 20 seconds!
when writing a new email, a pop up comes up after a few minutes of typing that says Do You want to keep writing to save as draft or go back to message....I have not clicked anywhere to prompt this message and it is getting very annoying when trying to compose a new message because I keep getting interupted.
There is a new box popping up asking to save a draft if you stop typing for about 5 seconds. It is VERY annoying to have to close that box multiple times while crafting an email. I don't know anyone who can always continually write an email and send it without reading through it.
Can't finish composing an email without a pop-up message asking Conform Close: Save Draft, Don't Save, Keep Writing. It's VERY annoying. Stop this pop-up!
Windows (says Save/Don't save/Continue writing) keeps coming up in the middle of composing email.
You can't save as draft, and you can't send, says error.
Please do away with the nag that pops up when I'm thinking about what to put in my e-mail message. This nag serves no useful purpose and is only a distraction.
Please fix EVERYTHING Yahoo screwed up with the recent "upgrade" to Yahoo Mail. Most everything is WORSE, and filled with malfunctions and errors. I use Google Chrome and have had Yahoo Mail for 13 years; only since the upgrade of 1-2 months ago has EVERYTHING gone wrong. NOTHING is better with this "upgrade"! Give us the PREVIOUS version BACK.
- I am now another receiver of the CONSTANT "Confirm Close" problem here, every 20 seconds it happens when I'm writing emails and NOT clicking away from them. Since about 1 week ago, this pops up 30 times per email that I'm composing. Are you people SERIOUS?
- Most of us need UNDERLINING in email-- who at Yahoo was stupid enough to take away basic underlining? This is DIFFERENT from using all-CAPS, in case you didn't know.
- We need convenient access to Folders as it was BEFORE; the current way of forcing the user to click on "Folders" is STUPID and slightly difficult. Literally searching for a small, hidden point to click on.
- Let US save our own drafts. Now, with it happening automatically, if I want to save an email I'm composing, manually, in between Yahoo's automatic saves, I CAN'T.
- One of the WORST things is where I click when the cursor is in a certain location-- clicking ALWAYS moves the cursor one place to the left of where I'd intended.
WHO at Yahoo is in charges of all these stupid *****-ups, called "improvements"???? This is horrible. I really want to leave Yahoo Mail after 13 years, but too many people have my address. But I may do so anyway.
WHY IS EVERY "UPGRADE" THAT YAHOO DOES OVER THE YEARS FAR WORSE THAN THE PREVIOUS VERSION IN SEVERAL WAYS-- AND THIS LAST ONE, WORSE IN EVERY DAMNED WAY???
I hate the confirm close every 5 sec.when im trying to write a email im going back to Google
"Keep writing" message pops up too often. There should be a way we can turn it off. It is very annoying and makes it almost impossible to do business using Yahoo mail.
Confirm close pop-up is annoying, stupid, and pointless. Please get rid of it.
Stop having the - Keeping writing, keep draft, cancel Email- window open every 10 seconds while writing an email, esp when actually in the process of typing. It's interruptive and annoying
Revert to the pre-upgrade version. This is abominable.
Others are voting for this too. Just wanted add that this also occurs if I click to another tab because sometimes you want to copy something into an email. Having to always Keep Writing is just insane.
Days ago while writing emails a pop-up is requesting you to Save message or continue writing.....This issue is anoying!
If Yahoo wants to change things they should allow people to choose if you want the feature or not! At least to Yahoo Plus Members who pay an anual fee..
The feature that asks if you want to save your message or keep writing is REALLY annoying. If this feature popped up after sitting idle for about 5 minutes, that would be great. Unfortunately, this feature pops up if your idle for 15 seconds. It is making me want to stop using Yahoo mail. I see that there are a lot of people complaining about this. Please make your users happy and adjust this.
This is the MOST annoying and idiotic feature ever conceived, in the middle of typing it keep popping up, and at random
As I am composing an email or trying to attach a file, I am getting a pop up asking me if I want to close and save the draft or keep writing. Please fix this ASAP! Thanks!
This is costing me twice the time just to compose and type a letter.
This pop-up is one of your SORRIEST IDEAS ever. Breaks my concentration every 15 seconds. Stops me from whatever I'm doing and totally takes over.
Confirm Close Your message has not been sent. Do you want to save it in your Drafts folder?Save DraftDon’t SaveKeep Writing
Ever since the format change Yahoo I have had one problem after another. The newest came simultaneously; a new pop up asking if I wanted to continue writing or save as draft, it is as annoying as ****. I've leaned that it is something new, it appears after ten seconds of no typing. The other is I can no longer open attachments, even ones that I received days ago and have already opened. I can forward the same email to my Hotmail account and it opens perfectly. That tells me that there is nothing wrong with my Internet security as some have suggested. The most frustrating thing of all is that every answer requires a lot of work from our end, that makes it difficult for the Tech-challenged among us. For example, I keep getting spam emails from my own account so I click on 'report as hacked account' and nothing has changed. In answers I received a long list of instructions that culminated with me finding the IP provider of the person sending the spam and contacting them; shouldn't that be something that Yahoo does?
All in all I am extremely dissatisfied with Yahoo since the change, and this latest problem is the last straw.
Lose that popup to "save draft, keep writing etc"!!!! It's a roy pain! if you pause for 5 seconds, it pops up, makes you move your cursor to hit a reply, and the entry scrolls back to a different place in your message so by the time you find where you were when the popup activated, you've entered the cycle of no activity and it pops up again! I'm about the change emails -- no worth it. You had a good thing going, why did you mess with it??? No one was chomping for any changes that I know of.
REMOVE THIS STUPID FEATURE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Confirm Close' pop up suddenly repeatedly appearing too frequently while typing messages
"Confirm close" pop-up: worst idea ever! Or at least, worst execution ever! Please fix!!
This morning if I pause when writing an email for any short amount of time, this dialog pops up: Your message has not been sent. Do you want to save it in your Drafts folder?
REMOVE "CONFIRM CLOSE"
...every 5 seconds I am being asked to confirm close...and I have to click on keep writing.
...when adding an attachment, I get kicked out and have to go into drafts to continue it.
Please fix this!
And in case you haven't heard it enough...I hate your new layout so much that I plan on cancelling my email account by the new year if you don't bring back some of the features that everyone is complaining about!!!
All of a sudden I am getting a popup box when I am writing an e-mail that asks if I want to discard, keeping writing, etc. It is so annoying!!! For example, I was looking for an address in my Contacts and it keeps bouncing me out of the draft I was writing. I can't find anything to shut this off in the options. HELP!!!
Simply put a check box in your new confirmed close that says"Don't show this box again. " And ..fire the idiot for not testing the feature before release.
Your 'Save Draft' thing is very annoying, let the user decide when & if drafts are needed
When I am writting an e-mail an anoying pop up keeps popping up and popping up and popping up asking me if I want to keep writing delete or save as a draft.
thanks for your help, Curtis Kaltenbach
After constantly annoying me, interrupting my flow of thoughts, with "Confirm Close", when I finally sent the message, there was an immediate response that it had failed to be sent.
Now I will have to rethink and rewrite the e-mail, wasting my time.
Just how aggravating a service are trying to provide?
Confirm Close message comes up about 6 times when I am composing a message. I have no idea why - I have not finished or tried to leave the message.
Yahoo mail is literally UNUSABLE!!!!
EVERY TEN SECONDS (I timed it) I get a message asking if I want to confirm close or keep writing. I can't upload attachments anymore. I can't send email.
WHAT THE **** IS WRONG WITH YOU GUYS? You had a system that worked perfectly fine, and then rolled out a piece of junk that is completely useless for anyone who wants to, I don't know, SEND OR RECEIVE EMAILS!!!!!
DROP IT. iTS A PAIN IN THE A**
Get rid of confirm close unless I choose to close!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One more day of this and it's gmail for me.
I keep getting messages if I want to save as draft or keep writing. why can't you fix a problem without creating a new one?
I request to please close "Confirm Close" notification in composing emails. This is disturbing doing our work. Or you may fixed it for after some time and give us choice to choose, whether we need this or not. Pls..... I hope you understand our need. Thanks and regards. Bhatia
every few seconds a dialog box appears saying confirm close while trying to compose a message, a total nuisance and irritating
Why there is a "Confirm Close" pop up while I am STILL writing the email.
This is so annoying!
I really hate the memo:
"Confirm Close : Your message has not been sent. Do you want to save it in your Drafts folder?" -- appearing on my screen",
when I write a letter. How can I get rid of it?
Remove Confirm Close Pop up in e-mail Composing
(1) End annoying popup box asking if you want to keep writing
(2) Make more horizontal room available without having to expand every time
I don't understand why you folks think your users are idiots. Don't you think we know that the message hasn't been sent or closed when we're in the process of writing it? Do you have folks in your R and D department who are just looking for new ways to annow your users? PLEASE STOP THOSE CONFIRM CLOSE POPUPS!
Add a way to get rid of the irritating "Do you want to continue writing" pop-up which pops up WHILE you are writing. WTF?! - more stupidity.
The popping up of Confirm Close is nonsensical! I'm both attaching items and writing a message and it pops up again and again every few seconds. There is no logic behind it and it is threatening to go ahead with the action if I don't click one of its "options". I cannot believe such a ridiculous action has been devised and then actually put in process. Who comes up with this rubbish? You want to alienate users and send a flood of us elsewhere? Oh, well, that's just the way to do it, of course.
Which one of you frickin' Einsteins came up with "Confirm Close"??? I'm typing and I stop to think, and the popup comes up and freezes everything, so I have to take my hands off the keys, find the mouse, and click Keep Writing. Then ten frickin' seconds later I have to do it again! And again! And again! WOULD ANY OF YOU YAHOO GUYS WANT TO WRITE THIS WAY? DO'H!
Please get rid of the constant pop up during email composition asking me if I would like to save the draft. It is really annoying and disruptive and will drive me to get rid of Yahoo mail.
The pop up have to go away. Who makes the stupid decision to do that?
I confirm that I'm closing my long-standing relationship with Yahoo because it's bad for my blood pressure....too frequent unnecessary changes, and the 'Confirm Close' box which makes writing an email a dreaded chore.
While writing emails, the "do you want to save as draft before you close" message appears constantly. About every 10 seconds or so. I can't find a way to turn this off and its a royal pain trying to compose email now.
I've used Yahoo Mail for many years and been through a number of upgrades. This ?upgrade? has got to be the worst perpetration of evil you have ever done to your users. I'm about to just discontinue Yahoo Email and use Gmail or Live.com as my provider. I can't stand all the **** that now has taken over Yahoo. If you can't fix this, then at least bring back the old version which worked FINE for us. From the comments I see on here, NO ONE likes this new version.
While writing mail, pop-up keeps asking if I want to save. New mail has MANY GLITCHES!!!!!!!
Ask to save as a draft maybe every 5 minutes.I didn't find an option for me to set my o wn time
Well, I'm sure you're familiar with this already. Not giving any information about it to your clients, though, as well as not acknowledging that you have a problem, not telling you are working on it and, above all, not APOLOGIZING for the inconvenience seems to me incredibly arrogant and disrespectful customer policy. Plus, the restrictions on sending feedback (you only have a certain number of 'votes') clearly tells that you really aren't as interested in hearing your user opinions as you like to claim.
Go back to the old method and let the user compose their email and decide if they want to exit without the constant "confirm close" popup. Provide the user with a way of turning the popup on or off, and the frequency.
Your latest "improvements" are just AWFUL!!! It is VERY annoying when your message asking whether I want to save the draft or continue writing. Saving drafts should ALWAYS be automatic UNLESS I want to get out of the message! Constant interrupting makes composing messages EXTREMELY difficult. How do I get rid of all those "helping" windows that pop-up?
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH THE YAHOO MAIL I USED TO LOVE?
Please get rid of this annoying distracting CONFIRM CLOSE. You're right in the middle of shaping your next sentence, and wham! This thing pops up and disrupts your thoughts.
Ye gods, folks --- what the devil is the matter over there at Yahoo mail? Didn't you ever hear the expression, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"??????
STOP the 'CONFIRM CLOSE' box CONSTANT interruption and repositioning of cursor back to beginning. STOP! Maybe once after minute inactivity, but not every time input is halted for 5 or 10 seconds!!! It is terrifically annoying -- PLEASE !!!!!
It seems like yahoo mail is getting so advanced that it is trying to guess what I want to do when writing. This is very annoying to be writing and have a popup box every 30-40 secs. I hope you can improve that feature by removing it.
In the last couple of days I've started getting an annoying popup while I'm trying to type out e-mail messages. If I pause for more than a second or two, a window pops up asking if I want to abandon the e-mail or if I want to keep typing. How do I turn this off? I like to ruminate while I type, I shouldn't have to worry that the computer thinks I'm taking too long.
When I'm writing a message, the draft is saved but in the same time, a window appears with this message : do you want to close, save the draft or cancel. It is very annoying because it appears a lot !
Could you please do something about it ?Thanks
Either get rid of the 'Confirm Close' message, or tell me how to turn it off - it serve no purpose and is irritating almost beyond words!!!!
I recently began using Yahoo mail on a regular basis after having an address on it for many years. I don't know whose brilliant idea this "confirm close" pop up message was, but it's annoying enough to drive me away. There are a lot of other mail services like Outlook, Juno, or even the one my ISP offers I can change to. If this persists I will leave Yahoo mail for good.
Stop Interrupting my composing a Email asking me if I want to save draft or cacnel or continue writing. Fix this please.
I can't even read what I wrote, that **** popup comes up every few seconds. If you are trying to drive me away from yahoo you are about there with this latest version, and now that **** popup. Keep in mind I don't really need yahoo, there are plenty of other email providers other than a screwed up mess like this.
Please don't assume I want to stop writing while I'm still writing! I thought I might have accidentally changed a setting, but it doesn't seem so. This only started happening today.
This new popup about saving drafts is horrible. My email typing is not a constant flow of characters. Sometimes I take a few minutes to think.
I do not want popups ever, but certainly not interrupting me every 30 seconds. WTF was yahoo thinking?
How about some usability testing and user feedback before implementing such an intrusive change.
Lately, as I'm writing an e-mail, this message comes up saying to "save, don't save, or continue writing" my e-mail. Fix it now, or I'm out of Yahoo, and going to Outlook.
I can't believe how many problems Yahoo has since it changed the layout. And I'm a paying member! Congratulations!!
Why does the "save to draft" dialog box come on screen every 20 seconds. I can not type or think about what I am writing with these on going interruption. Please stop it.
hi there, within a past day or so I am getting frequent "confirm close" pop ups every few moments sometimes just within seconds making any work on an email a real annoyance.
Is it just another improvement that users have to endure from now on or there is a way to turn this 'new feature' off.
Why are you ruining Yahoo mail so comprehensively? Looks like Google has planted an insider in Yahoo... First, you removed tabs and many other features; now every time I compose an email, a window keeps popping up, asking me if I want to close, keep writing or save in drafts. All the time I was simply writing the email: who on earth invoked that pop-up window?!
Every few seconds, (literally,) a "confirm close" window pops up, interrupting my train of thought, my work, and my peace.
It is a very annoying bug that makes it impossible to use yahoo mail. I have been using my alternate accounts while this is being fixed.
HOW LONG MUST WE WAIT?!
In the middle of typing emails every few minutes a box pops up asking if i want to save, don't save or continue writing. It's annoying. I don't want that feature. Make it stop please. This just started last night. And in one email I was inserting 3 links and after each the box would come up.
How do I disable the CONFIRM CLOSE box that pops up every 30 seconds while I am trying to write an email...?
Why does "Confirm Close" popup keep appearing every minute or so while I am writing Yahoo email?
A new glitch 11-23-13 where the "save draft or keep writing" message comes up every few seconds, even while I'm typing. I see I'm not the only one having this problem. Somebody seems to be doing way too much tinkering with what used to work. I don't know how much longer I will put up with this ****. You are making it very difficult to use Yahoo for email. Or is that the point? It is also still hard to save to folders. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it takes 8 attempts to get the same email to move.
why am I getting a box that pops up while I"m typing an email that says something like do I want to save the message, keep writing and something else. It keeps popping up every few seconds while I'm composing my email and is driving me CRAZY!!!
Please stop the message from trying to close while I'm in the middle of writing it.
When composing new email I am asked every 15 seconds if I want to save what I'm writing. It is annoying and makes me loose my train of thought. Honestly, I haven't found one likeable feature of this new Yahoo Mail. Put this Mail in the trash!!!
Give a little more breathing space before popping up this message. It is very annoying
Make this annoying message stop?
Typing an email message is a nightmare..You type 3 words and get a pop up notice
Your message has not been sent.
Do you want to save it in your Drafts folder? Save Draft Don't Save Keep Writing
Deciding how long our emails should be and how many words are too many, is super annoying.
Our email writing length / time should be more than 10 seconds.
How to turn that off or is this something else we have no choice about?
why can't I write until done? why is the message about saving draft, keep writing ... just the latest about this new version of Yahoo Mail that is CACA ... about to switch to GMAIL ...
When I'm writing an email, if I happen to pause for 30 secs or so to think about my next statement, a popup appears titled Confirm Close. It says:
"Your message has not been sent. Do you want to save it in your Drafts folder?"
Why am I getting that annoying popup over and over, while I'm writing? I am not closing the window or doing anything to suggest I want to close the email that I'm still writing.
I get a Confirm Close popup every 15 seconds or so when I'm writing an email. Just started today and I changed no settings. Get rid or that. It's EXTREMELY annoying!!
Get rid of that blankety blank "Confirm Close" pop-up that appears every few seconds when I am trying my absolute best to compose an email.. It is totally distracting and totally interferes with one's line of thought. TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE!!!!!! What kind of animals are you people at Yahoo! anyway??? You absolutely WILL drive everyone away with that.
Beginning today, when I am composing an e-mail message, the following dialog box frequently pops up:
Your message has not been sent. Do you want to save it in your Drafts folder?
It seems to occur when the message is performing its auto-save function.
Please fix this ASAP. It's very annoying! You've got to do a better job with this new version of Yahoo! Mail. Many people already don't like the new interface, and these problems that keep popping up are going to drive users away.
What is up with this annoying pop-up asking me if I want to save my email to draft or keep writing WHILE I'M WRITING IT!!??? It serves no purpose whatsoever, as my emailis already set to auto-save drafts. Please make it stop--forcing me to use this awful, ugly new format is bad enough, but the annoyance of a po-up every few seconds is driving me bokers.
User since the 90's
Just now was composing an email, and every time I'd stop typing to think about how to word what I wanted to say next, a message would pop up asking me to click on one of 3 options, like either "Discard message," "Save in draft folder," or "Keep writing." This happened 4 times while writing one message!!! Now you won't even let us pause for a few seconds to think! Aaaarrrgh!!!!
Received this popup several times while I was writing an email today. Please either do the save automatically or let us save ourselves with save draft button.
When trying to type an email, a stupid ''confirm close" draft notice keeps popping up every 10 seconds and you have to keep shutting it off. There needs to be a setting to shut it off completely so you can write without that constant interruption.
I keep getting this message: "Confirm Close
You still have attachments uploading. Are you sure you want to close?
Return to Message Close Without Saving" How do I stop it?
When I'm composing a message, every time it auto-saves the draft, it pops up a window that asks if I really want to leave the message. Just started doing this today.
Why all the changes? I was content with things the way they were! Now, when I'm in the middle of composing an e-mail, I get a little box that pops up asking if I want to Save, Send to Draft or Keep Writing. It happens every few seconds or so and it's getting frustrating! When I pause to compose my thoughts, I don't want to continually be interrupted by this aggravating feature. Can't it be eliminated? How do I stop it?
Well, you fixed the 'mark as read' issue, but now a new issue. While I'm composing an email, I keep getting this annoying pop up "Confirm Close" message asking if I want to delete, save, or keep writing - and I have not done anything to prompt the message, it just pops up at random and I have to select "keep writing" to get it go away. Can you PLEASE try to fix that??? I could understand if I left the draft email unattended for some period of time, but it does this if I just pause for a few seconds, multiple times before I get finished with my message.
Please stop the pop-up asking me if I'm finished composing a message. It doesn't give me time to think.
While writing emails, the message keeps trying to exit and asking me if I want to 'Save in Drafts', 'Discard', or 'Keep Writing', but I have not tried to move away from my message - this also happens when I literally do nothing but just leave the window open for more than approx 30 secs.
Watching when this occurs, it is when a new ad loads in the sidebar. I have no probs having ads in the sidebar, but I do when it continually interupts my email writing to ask if I want to exit, when I obviously don't. Please stop this from happening, since many email replies and messages do take longer than 30 secs to type! Perhaps the new ad is trying to refresh the whole page? Whatever is happening, please correct - many thanks.
This pattern of rollout of defective code/updates by providers (refer to national news for one example) has to cease.
Yahoo is now complicit in rolling out an unsolicited update to give us a "Confirm Close" screen EVERY MINUTE while typing an email.
If this is not fixed within HOURS, I will forever cease using Yahoo mail and I suggest others do the same.
I am logging out now and will try twice later today. Fair notice, Saturday or not.
Do away with the Confirm Close...Save Draft/Don't Save/Keep Writing annoying popups. Instead, do like Outlook does and automatically save not yet sent emails.
This new pop up while composing email is annoying! Please get rid of it. It comes within seconds of a pause while I re-read a sentence or think of my next sentence.
YOU (meaning Yahoo) do know there are other mail providers -- don't you? AND IT EASY TO CHANGE.
if Yahoo's goal is to drive off customers, the e-mail pop-up to confirm close showing itself during VERY short pauses in typing / editing is enough to cause it. AND it is not a method to improve customer loyalty NOR attract new users to yahoo mail... and NO i will not pay for premium email service to stop the pop-up. it can not be good for business, even if a allowed by your TOS.
When writing emails, I get the following annoying email when I stop typing for about 10 seconds. Your new email is a big step backwards! This is really obnoxious!
Confirm Close Your message has not been sent. Do you want to save it in your Drafts folder?
When I am composing e-mails, the message pops up every few seconds asking if I want to save draft, not save, or keep writing. Slows down my work to have to click that every few sentences!
Just take this message away. I really can tell when I've finished writing.
"Saving to draft" is just fine if I have to step away for too long.
Lump the confirm close dialog box complaints in one complaint
When composing I get the save, cancel or keep writing message at random times -- sometime 3-4 times in the same sentence? What causes that and how can I set the default draft save time/interval. Is it possible I am hitting a key combination that brings up that dialog box?
When writing an Email, A popup to confirm close comes up every time you pause.
This is extremely annoying. I like to look over what i wrote or have to reference an email when replying, and this popup fouls up the thought process.
Please include a way to shut this feature off
Really annoying bug - CONFIRM CLOSE: save draft blah blah blah...
Please fix ridiculous bug. For no reason Ymail keeps asking if I want to leave my email and disregard or save or keep writing....
What's wrong with this new system? Really annoying.
Thank you for trying to fix.
While writing a email, pop up appears on the screen every minute asking „Confirm Close“ giving me option to click on „Don’t save“ „Save“ and „Keep writing“ and i have to click on either one in order to continue writing. It is annoying. Is there a way to remove that message from the screen and to have email saved as a draft automatically without user’s confirmation as it used to work that way a day ago?
I hate your new feature where you keep interrupting with a pop up asking me if I want to save to draft or exit every second. I'm not even pausing very long. I like to think about what I type so I need to pause!
You've added a feature where with each auto save of the message I am writing, I get a popup message asking me if I want to continue writing. I hate this feature. I have to stop and respond to the message and then I have to reinsert the cursor to where I was interrupted in my message writing. This feature is just plain dumb and I hate it. Please remove it!
Today for some reason, when i write an email, every time a draft is saved i get the pop up window that would only appear if you hit the close buttons.
It appeared 5 times on a 3 minute email.
This better not be a feature. Please fix it asap.
Also another "fun" bug that developed about 2 weeks ago is that now i can't paste any links into an email, the ****** auto selects the last linked item from a past reply and applies the link to that, which is usually the senders email address.
So now i have to paste the link as text and then make it a link.
Why do you guys keep screwing up Yahoo Mail more and more ?
I didn't have any problems with Yahoo Mail 5-10 years ago.
My idea this should not sending this alert which very annoying.
What on earth are you people thinking? Every 15 seconds your system puts out a pop up to ask me if I want to keep writing? How funny it is used to put up a new advertisement.
I absolutely guarantee that I will drop yahoo mail if that keeps up. I can not afford to hit the wrong button and send an incomplete email to all the people in my organization.
I have email accounts with Hotmail, gmail and I own three domains that have email. I will not risk this poor excuse for free email if you do not remove that lunacy. Very bad idea !!
New problem: when writing new email, a popup warning to 'Save to Draft' - 'Continue Writing' comes up repeatedly fast and doesn't allow to write in peace with it's very annoying interruptions.
Yahoo mail repeatedly asks to save draft while writing and sometimes kicks me off the writing field
for gods sake stop fiddling with your mail. "keep writing" "save draft" you do not need to keep prompting and distracting when one is busy thinking and typing and pausing in between. The new format as it is irritating. And then as one tries to get used to it, you keep changing and adding
This happens about every 45 seconds or so and is EXTREMELY IRRITATING. If you don't click "Keep Writing", the window with the email you are writing closes and you have to go into Drafts to get it back.
Isn't it about time to admit that you have royally screwed up Yahoo! Mail? Every week it's a new bug. Well, our patience is running very thin. If you can't admit your mistakes and go back to the old Mail, at least fix these bugs quickly, or we'll all be departing for Outlook.com and Gmail. And that's coming from someone who has been loyal to Yahoo! Mail for over 15 years.
This popup comes up constantly, you can't even proof what you have written or think about what you want to type next without having to contend with this popup all the time.
This new yahoo mail is just a mess. How can you keep going backwards on your upgrades. You guys didn't work on Healthcare.gov did you. (Sorry, couldn't resist)
This is very annoying!!!
Today, while I was the process of composing an email, Yahoo interrupted every 60 seconds with a message to ask if I'd like to Save to Draft!! How annoying. This just started today. What's up, Yahoo? Why would you want to make it more difficult to write EMAILS? Isn't this what you do?
While writing an e-mail, about every 10 seconds it asks me if I want to keep writing. Does it really expect me to finish my e-mail in less than one minute? This is terribly annoying, since many e-mails take 10 or 20 minutes to write.
Do not ask to close and save messages while we are still composing them!
I have some really great news! This issue has been fixed, and writing and saving draft messages should once again be working normally.
All of us here really appreciate your patience while we corrected this problem. We know what an inconvenience something like this can be, so we are very sorry if this impacted you!
Thank you for using Yahoo Mail!

can not play spades on yahoo cuz of pop ups
Mine is losing files or unable to continue and throws you our of message writing. plus messenger still keeps forcing itself up whilst typing a normal email. Not impressed
it is NOT fixed! it keeps happening!
What has yahoo mail done now to infuriate us
I don't have a problem with the 'confirm close' notice since it never comes up... instead, the email just closes while I'm typing. I then go to the draft folder and re-open it...only to have it happen again 2 sentences later.
Wait for it.......... here comes a bu//**** response from Yahoo that it has been fixed, then they'll close this suggestion to voting, then someone else will post the exact same suggestion, which Yahoo will say is fixed.......Ad Nauseum!!!!!!
I'm calling bu//**** on Yahoo - absolutely is not fixed.
I'm calling ******** on Yahoo - absolutely is not fixed.

I don't have a problem with it!!!!
This is without question the worst "upgrade" to any software I have ever used. Everything about it is inconsistent, counter-intuitive and annoying. I can't get through an email without having to cancel the "confirm close" message every 10 seconds and chase away the ads every 5 seconds even though I have ad blocker. I even tried to pay for ad free mail out of desperation but when following the directions to "hover over settings" and choose ad free mail it didnt even exist, wasn't an option. I am now trying to figure out how to migrate to a new email service, I have had it with Yahoo.
No, it's NOT fixed!
Larry: Some things worked better (formatting, attachments), some did not work at all that way (I couldn't open 'sent' file, couldn't check 'spam' file before I deleted everything), so I had to change it back again. Oh, a pox on Yahoo!
This doesn't appear to be fixed on my end at all. In fact the messages pop up more frequently disrupting the flow of constructing an email.
Well, if Yahoo can not fix it, is time to move-on to another Email service!
I am also having problems with trying to respond to some of my letters because I can no longer drag and drop on my computer?? Don't know why. If I try to answer a letter in a different color text, it jumps to the top of the page everytime that I right click my cursor.---Very annoying because I scroll down to where I was and then the next time I right click my cursor, it goes back to the top of the page.
I got the pop-ups to stop, got my tabs back at the top, got the formatting, attachments, emoticons, everything as "normal" (whatever that means).
Go to Yahoo.com (NOT your email page). Then go up to Tools - Compatibility View Settings. You will see Yahoo.com in the box.. click "Add". Yahoo. com will then be listed in the added compatibility. Then your email should be ok. Good luck!!
This doesn't appear to be solved ... at least not for me. I continue to get these same pop-ups with Yahoo email.

Hello my e-mail acct is firstname.lastname@example.org and I can confirm that the problem is NOT resolved, the stupid "Confirm close, save draft, keep writing" keeps popping up every two seconds and it is insanely frustrating as are all the other zillion glitches in the new Yahoo that was foisted upon us.
Le me enumerate some of the other problems:
1) When replying to an e-mail, it is impossible to attach photos, adjust font, etc, because the options bar cannot be displayed, even if I scroll down all the way to the bottom. So, a new e-mail message must be started, with content copied and pasted from the previous message. Totally unacceptable and inconvenient.
2) Stationary is no longer available.
3) It is impossible to start writing one message and go back to your inbox without losing your msg and having to retrieve it in drafts. This is probably one of the most significant and seriously irritating changes. WHERE ARE THE &*& TABS AT THE TOP?????? We need to multitask, Come on Yahoo! It is totally insane that I can't check my inbox and open MULTIPLE e-mails at the same time!
4) The HORRIBLE HORRIBLE "conversations" which are totally incoherent, impossible to read, etc etc.
5) and on and on and on and on...
Same problem here with it repeatedly acting like I am exiting while I am typing an email. I also cannot open emails at times and having trouble with attachments. Hate that I am PAYING for this bad service. PLEASE FIX THIS!
