  6. REMOVE

    REMOVE suggestive, ****** ad pictures that are automatically placed onto in-box! Regardless of orientation or viewpoint, this type of ad is not welcome or appropriate.

  9. Narrow the side ad again and lose the purple-colored one at the top.

    I'd actually like to be able to see emails, rather then have them covered or scrunched up (and the flashing/animated ones have to go--very ******* the eyes), and if I get a virus or malware on my computer because I accidentally clicked on the purple one, there will be trouble.

    I understand you need ads for the revenue but this is getting ridiculous. (and I wouldn't pay $50 for the "privilege" of no ads, especially considering the feedback I've seen here. They pay and they pay and yet there are still ads)

  11. Trashy, dating, etc. sites

    For the last six months or so they all kinds of trashy sites keep coming in on my email. Got to click the box 2 times to spam them but they are right back the next day with another new one. Spam doesn't do any good. Any suggestions....deleting yahoo is my suggestion.

  14. Add Chromium as supported browser

    Chromium is a faster web browser than Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Explorer, Tor, etc. Yahoo! mail is distinguished by its lack of versatility when it comes to supporting other web browsers, it makes the platform rigid against other email providers, and ultimately it may also cost Yahoo! mail lose clients.

  19. Ads

    You charge company's to put Ads on, then you bombard us with those Ads and then you charge us for taking the Ads off but not entirely because we still see some Ads.....you act like your doing us a favor but what you forget is that we didn't ask for the Ads to begin with! Really....NOT in my world! I'll stick with Classic and that way I don't have to deal with STUPID which is most Advertising now a days!
