  1. Get rid of ads showing up in my list of files. There is no way to unsubscribe from BrightRoll, even on their website! Very annoying.

    Don't tell us we can unsubscribe from BrightRoll when in actuality, you can't. On BrightRoll there is no unsubscribe area.

  6. Yahoo email Ads redirecting to suspicious websites despite no virus or malware on host machine

    Recently since April-2017 I am seeing that whenever I login into yahoo email (through my home internet service provider) and keep tab open for few minutes, I am redirected to fake survey websites: Shaw Survey website. It seems to happen via javascript. There has been lot of frustration on yahoo website forums on this topic as the ads seem to inject a site redirection javascript which is allowed on yahoo mail only and no other email provider is doing that: See below

  7. Before placeing popp up ads make sure they pass security setings, keeps locking mail up

    before popping up ads, make sure they pass security settings. Otherwise the security system locks up the system and you have to click accept or decline about 10 times before a 2 second break to select what you want to do in your mail account before it post at least 10 more security notices.

  8. No videos in empty mail boxes

    I think Yahoo powers that be need to understand how serious a problem the videos in empty mail, and other, boxes could be to people. It's not just that they're annoying, although they are, but that they can trigger seizures and migraines in people who suffer from those. As soon as I empty my inbox on the actual Yahoo site, and my Sky email inbox too, I have to look away while I click off of the site or I feel light headed and unwell. It's a very serious problem. I have no problem with static ads, which Yahoo used…

  10. Allow users to opt in or out of ads on yahoo mail.

    Users should be allowed to opt in or out of yahoo ads. If, as you allege, ads are for the benefit of the users, then we should choose. After having Yahoo as my main email acct for close to 20 years, I am seriously considering using my Gmail account. All of these constant ads are annoying, practically abusive. Make money some other way!

  11. Money for no ads

    Repeatedly you have sent me emails reminding me to pay so I do not receive ads. I have done everything as instructed in the email and repeatedly get sent to sign and over and over and that's all it does.

  14. Ads on my email are way over the line. I've hung in with Yahoo through all the challenges of the past year. Gmail, here I come.

    I get free email and you get all my information, all my contacts to drive your advertising revenue. Now, you're putting ads for products I don't support and find embarassing (adderall, really) and include it in emails I send to friends and family and my peers. It totally ruins any messages I'm trying to send. If this continues, I will need to leave. And no, I'm not paying for a product that is poorly designed and maintained. Yahoo has been behind for many years now.

  15. Vertical ads cutting off my email when printing

    On many occasions, when I try to print a received e-mail, the long, vertical add to the right cuts off much of the right side of my email.

  16. Please... is there anyway to be not hounded constantly about uber? it is so irritating!!!

    Please make the omnipresent uber banner/static link/harassment end! it started before signup even was done and it refused to believe i may not want contribute to a dangerous 'let us do away with employment, legal liability, stability, fairness, *actual* self-employment, etc' scam that protects and makes a few people rich by removing responsibility or social contracts and labor laws (and you know who needs safety or whatever but i digress) and now its right there on top of the mail page. no matter how you avoid at signup for yahoo mail it just thinks it is awesome. like all those…
