Stop with the "Yahoo is better with the app" pop up that freezes my screen!!! I ALREADY HAVE THE APP, for starters!!
What GENIUS deployed this half page pop up add for your terrible news app that FREEZES THE WHOLE **** PAGE???? You can't kill it, if you refresh it goes back to the main page, it's a complete dead end!! What BRILLIANT PERSON came up with that???
I'm done with you stupid people.
Thank you for reporting this. Would you be able to give us some additional details to help us investigate and resolve this issue:
1. Does this happen on a desktop or mobile device?
2. What browser are you using?
3. Is the ad for the Yahoo News app or the Yahoo App?
Why ius this still not fixed???
It's about the most ridiculous thing I've ever encountered online. I can't believe it's taking this long to fix.
I open a news article. 5-10 seconds later a HUGE pop up from YOU GUYS covers 2/3rd of the screen and freezes everything. I can't read the article, or close the pop up. If I refresh it just starts all over again.
MAKE IT STOP!!
Also, I already have the stupid App, and it is TERRIBLE! STOP TRYING TO MAKE ME USE IT!!!
This should never happen.

Add an "opt out" button at least. Sheesh.
The pop up covers the full page and won't let you past it, meaning it's time to give up on Yahoo! as a news source, which I don't think was the intent. Please fix this

Not sure you did this intentionally, but your 'pop-up' add to install the yahoo app on my tablet renders most of your news articles unreadable and there is no way to close it except abandon the page.
If this was intentional, what a train wreck. Imagine all the advertisers that paid for impressions that are not seen, but that look like they are seen. Imagine the irate users. The poor customer experience. I cannot see supporting a company that would do that to its users.
If it was an accident, wow... what a mess up. It works 'OK' on Android phones... still kinds of a poor experience that does not set a good example of what to expect if I installed the app.
Either way... wow... that product manager should consider a new career... in say ... I have no idea where you put a person like that... i was going to say landscaping but they would probably build a brick wall in front of a window.
