    • Put login and password back on same page, single click please.

      Put login page back the way it was. Single click for login. NOT one for id another for password. Every extra key stroke is a major pain **********!

                • I can't read my emails. For more than 2 days every time I click on a message it tells me "temporary problem" and try later. It is later!

                  I can't read my emails. For more than 2 days every time I click on a message it tells me "temporary problem" and try later. It is later! This miserable help desk doesn't even have a way to identify the problem I'm having. As a paying customer, I expect better from Yahoo. I'm forced to use my back up hotmail address instead of mcgayhey@yahoo.com

                          • Something has happened to your site in the last few days.

                            It is becoming completely unworkable. One or two pages will work, and then the small rotating circle will just sit there doing nothing, with the page frozen. Restarts and subsequent restarts are required to get pages to work, before freezing up again. I hope you are looking into this problem,,, It's getting very frustrating.

                                • Why can I not contact you other than through existing threads that do not cover my problem?

                                  Why has my emails not been restored, I have sent three requests all of which have been responded to with an action number, or is it an inaction number.
                                  Similar to your 7th and 394th ranked problem.
                                  Why are you hiding?
