An ad-free experience
Yahoo is too anti-Trump. There are 2 sides, I want/need to hear BOTH. I don't care your OPINION, I want facts. I don't find it at Yahoo.

Your ad "The Biggest Deal In Dragons' Den History"
(healthierpatriot Sponsored) is a scam. Google "Bitcoin Trader scam" and you will see that this Dragons' Den deal is fake. It didn't happen.
Mark Roberts commented
Your ad "Bill Reveals Reason For Microsoft Exit" redirects to a blatantly fraudulent webpage that promotes Bitcoin Trader. Bitcoin Trader is a scam. You are losing credibility when you run ads for scams.
Free financial news feed built on my personal watchlist.

I agree with the comment from Anonymous from March 23rd. I get the red screen redirect when just reading the main finance.yahoo.com - even if I'm not clicking on anything. It takes over Chrome and doesn't let you even close the window. It's annoying to the point where I'll stop visiting finance.yahoo.com.
Limit sponsored ads to the right side of the page, the way they used to be

Get rid of ads that make noise without being asked. I open several portfolio screens at once, and each one has an ad with sound. Tracking them down - thanks, Tiffany's, could you be less upscale if you tried? - is a nuisance.
I can accept that my eyeballs are you deliverable. But must you take my ears, too?
possibly publish interviews of well known wall street analyst
Need to cut down on ads on the home page. I am looking for news articles and it is too difficult to filter out the ****** ads that are in the way.
When a stock splits, the chart should reflect a zero sum change meaning that, if it is a 2-1 split, it should not show the stock going down 50% and if it is a reverse 1-10 split, it should not show a 100% gain.
I often get the malware popup both in Chrome and Firefox. It doesn't seem to be a particular ad and can occur even when the page is sitting idle for a few minutes. I enjoy your content but I rarely visit because of this issue.

I forgot to mention that the problem I described in previous post occurs on the "finance.yahoo.com" page. That's the only Yahoo page that I visit.

I got the red malware screen 4 times in the last 2 weeks on my Windows 10 desktop. I noticed that it happened when I was just scrolling over the stories and I think one time when I opened one of the sponsored links. I know some of your sponsored links are dodgy. Just scrolling over them prompts McAfee to give me a warning - Do you really want to go there?. Unfortunately I cant remember which ads they were and frankly I am not going to go back there to find out. Now I just use my ipad and safari on your website seems to have no issues at all. But you should fix this ASAP. Use McAfee equipped Windows computer and you should be able to spot the bad sponsored links fairly quickly.

either post dollar signs on article/provider that require sign up or require the provider to allow reading of entire artcle then ask for sign up. market realist and others let you go through 1/2 the article then deny further till sign up. there are only so many signups one can handle. capital cube the same way.

It suddenly appears when i pull up yahoo mail or My yahoo with my stock portofilo under finance.
it is getting more aggressive...several times a day and hard to x out!!!
When I am in my portfolio or getting stock quotes, Yahoo sometimes disappears and is replaced by an all red malware screen that scams me that a Microsoft Windows error has occurred and I should call the number on the screen. This doesn't happen anywhere else on Yahoo or other websites, but it happens regularly in Yahoo Finance's portfolio and stock quotes.
I use Chrome with Avast extensions and scan regularly to assure my computer is not infected. I am convinced that the problem is a defect in Yahoo Finance -- it needs to be fixed!
YOU can better control the source of these ads, they are starting up as per 2016 when yahoo and aol background ads contained phishing and malware redirects. It's happening again. Legitimate adverts are affected because I'm blocking those external links.

I HACE SCOURED YAHOO HELP AND CONTACT AND SECURITY TIPS AND EEEVVVVVVEEEEEERRRRRYYYYY USELESS PAGE THAT GIVE NO WAY TO ACTUALLY CONTACT A HUMAN BEING AT CORPORATE WHEN THE SITE GETS BUGGY IN SUPER DANGEROUS WAYS!!!
After YEARS off and on with a dozen or more different phones and 4 different browsers on each, privacy tabs, regular, cookies, cache, Java, desktop, mobile, McAfee, Kaspersky, Avast, AVG, Cheetah, Safe Mode, BitMobile, nothing has ever STOPPED that rerouted spam/phish/virus/whatever-techie-name-for-the-hack-bug-thing -- I finally FINALLY figured out IT IS ONLY YAHOO FINANCE THAT IS AFFECTED
oh, and that when I try to use the Help/ Contact Us FAIL [page reads : "Need assistance with a Yahoo product? Let's see how we can help.
Tell us your Yahoo email address and product." With dropdown menu and text box to enter yahoo id email address, and then a Verify I Am Not A Robot box to loop a mini-game of hidden pictures or I Spy or whatever...
Well, THAT page DOES NOT WORK EITHER!!! Do all that correct in full and click Continue or Submit or whatever, and (again, regardless of which of the above-mentioned variables is active or not, applied, not, permissioned, not, etc.) regardless of what option is picked from the dropdown limited and inapplicable choices for what Help is Needed With or What Do You Need To Contact Us About or whatever the lingo, doesn't matter, not one choice changes the outcome over the others, no matter what I only get a white blank page that has the Yahoo logo in the corner and bold-type "Ooops!" ]
THANK YOU SWEET WONDERFUL STRANGER, YOU POOR DEAR FOR YOUR HEADACHE AND AFFLICTION, SUFFERING THE SAME B***S*** WITH YAHOO FINANCE AS I HAVR BEEN PLAGUED WITG AND FELT TERRIFIED AND THREATENED BY --- BUT THANK YOU, Maurice Robichaud FOR BEING MY ONLY VERIFICATION, THAT IT ****IS**** INDEED STRICTLY EVERY PAGE AND ARTICLE AND EVERY BIT YAHOO FINANCE SOLELY AND DISCRIMINATELY AND NOT ANYTHING ELSE ON MY DEVICES!!!
THANK YOU, YAHOO USER WHO POSTED THIS FOR HELPING TO EASE THE CRAZY THIS HAS BEEN DRIVING ME!!!
THANK YOU FOR THIS POST BEING THE CLOSEST THING I HAVE FOUND TO AN ANSWER
sad, that your post is the only solace and closest thing to an answer I feel I'll ever find, but I take comfort in knowing IT IS YAHOO FINANCE THAT IS THE PROBLEM
Depressingly, as TERRIFYING as that whole crazy Facebook-virus-warning-contest-scam looking buggy page is -
AND the fact that IT IS NOW SOOOOOOOK BAD I CANNOT VIEW OR EVEN HAVE OPEN ONE SINGLE YAHOO FINANCE PAGE FOR EVEN 2 MINUTES BEFORE GOING VIRUS-WARNING-BUGGY-RE-RE-ROUTED-BROWSER-PAGE-TAKEOVER-SPASTIC
... it was only made ALL THE WORSE by bugs and fails that makes Yahoo Help utterly useless
Maurice Robichaud commented
When I have a number of browser tabs open only Yahoo pages jump by themselves to dangerous websites!!! NO OTHER SITES DO THIS!!! ONLY YAHOO.
I am running McAfee and I have no viruses or malware as was suggested the last time I reported this. This is a problem specific to Yahoo.
You are under attack again and you are putting customers at risk.
I now avoid Yahoo pages and have found alternate financial sites.
This is sad because Yahoo Finance used to be my favorite. I would recommend it to others.
NOT ANY MORE, BECAUSE YAHOO IS COMPROMISED.
Again, no other pages do this ever, only Yahoo.
