      • Annoying and congesting floating toolbar on yahoo pages.

        Why is there no 'close' button? Hardly any of the content on the floating toolbar is useful and it takes up over 1/5th of the screen leaving a cramped feel when trying to read the news or mail or any other of yahoo's wonderful content. Get rid of the toolbar OR implement a close option to view the entire veiw of content on the page!! VERY ANNOYING

        • create an option on the toolbar to allow clients to delete all adds and popups

          why not install an option for clients like a button or a feedback option to correct technical problems etc on toolbar.

          • Remove ALL ads, especially, ones about surveys!

            Ads pop up when I am trying to log on to my email. They are annoying, because I must then begin the log in process again. I equate them to robo calls from politicians, at dinner time!

                  • How Do you contact Yahoo.. You dont because they dont care what your opinion is.. otherwise How do you contact Yahoo....

                    make a button for feedback to a real employee and not this stupid blog ****.. I absolutely hate the auto play feature on videos.. If I want to watch a video I will watch it.. Do NOT start it for me.. What happens idiots is that when you got multiple screens open and they all start playing and the same time.. You get computer freeze ups and thats not necessary to have happen.. STOP THE AUTO PLAY BACK PERIOD.. If not then you deserve to loose money.. I wont buy a product that yahoo auto starts just off of principle..…

                      Hi there,

                      We do appreciate all the feedback we receive, and we do listen to the feedback from our users on this Suggestion Board. Our Product Group checks each post on a regular basis.

                      With regards to the auto-play feature, you can turn this feature off. You’ll want to click on the menu icon when hovering your mouse over the video. Then use your mouse scroll wheel to see the bottom of the feature list, and click Preferences under Settings. Turn Autoplay Off, and click on the X in the top-right corner to close out of the options menu.

                    • Please help me, need to change my phone # to access a new password an ur advice is not working

                      Need to change my phone number or put in a gmail address to get a new password for my account and your tech support pages only allow a msg to be sent to my old #..HELP!!!

                              • Report Button

                                Articles are being posted with questionable reputability and intent.

                                Here is an example of one such article, which is advertising 3rd-party software for home router configuration:

                                https://www.yahoo.com/tech/s/now-secure-home-wi-fi-network-just-one-190600114.html

                                The article is so offensive, that it has received nothing but negative feedback in the comments section. One such statement, is that the article itself is "Dishonest and unethical."

                                This led me to realize that Yahoo! articles do not have a REPORT function. This is crucial for user feedback, and expresses a level of unprofessionalism on Yahoo! News's part. There should be no excuse not to provide users with a way to contribute…

                                  Since turbines are light and efficient. They spin fast- just what an electrical generator likes,. So then why are they not used in hybrid cars? I realize that conventional engines allow power takeoff but that alone doesn't seem to be justification.
