Leave it alone
you always try to improve your and by doing so, you make it worse. Your Browser has become one of the worse browsers there is. Every page you click on, you're inundated with ads, all sorts of ads that cover most of the page. They just pop up out of nowhere. You can't just read an article on just one page, you have to look at a whole slide show to get the whole story. It really sucks. But obviously, you could care less about what people think about your programs because nothing is ever done about it. You as bad as Firefox which use to be a great browser, but not anymore.

Please make the mail search work!!!!! It is ridiculous not to be able to find what you need from previous correspondence....I am so unimpressed...
Ron McG commented
Most of the settings window is used by the LEAST USED items! How often are the color or layouts changed? The most often used settings should be at the TOP of the list. You track all moves, so see which items are USED MOST and put them at the top of the list.

It SUCKS!!!!! dCb
When ready to send a composed note the stupid advice popup overlays the send button and there is no way to clear the popup. This is with firefox and fonts magnified at least 50%. The only way to send is to go into draft folder and refresh the screen; then the send button is revealed. Otherwise can't scroll or push any button - frozen!

Unusual interface to cope with.... How to make it my previous default one? The new interface is giving so much interference. (I use both Chrome and Firefox. But in Firefox with previous/older version of windows = it is good and excellent. But in Chrome it creates so much trouble for me. Please help

Allowing the ads adds slowdown and lag spikes to my browsing experience... NO THANK YOU. Using firefox on a 4.4ghz i5, 16g ram, and GTX 760.

I'm having the same problem using Safari... there's no way to update the "your name" or "description" fields due to the "save" button being greyed out and not active. Yahoo, please help us resolve this issue. Thanks.

Save button - Bug
In: Email -> Setting -> Mailboxes -> Send-only email address
When I edit the sender name, it is not possible to save the changes.
There is a "save button" but it is disabled. It is not possible to save "Your Name" - i.e. sender name, when I edit a "Send-only email address".
I have tried both Chrome and Firefox (latest versions) on windows 10.
Both have the same bug.

Stop nagging me, I won't disable my browser extensions because there are WAY too many ads, secondly I'm sick and tired of having to reset my password when I know for a fact I get it right. I have to use the autocomplete forms function of Firefox to log in without resetting it on my main account. Get your damned act together.

I would rather not have to press an extra click and use my eyes to find the right button to click on every time I login just to ignore the nag message about updating my browser or to go for the classic Yahoo in order to get access to Yahoo Mail. Get the services to work to the lowest possible denominator to handle the greatest number of browsers, including those that are slightly older than, say, version 50 of Firefox, or using SeaMonkey or Waterfox.
NOTE: You may wish to try installing the TotalSpoof Add-On tin order to bypass this silly nag message from Yahoo on Firefox, Waterfox, and SeaMonkey.
Apart from that, getting Yahoo Mail functions to get loaded up and working is slower than before. I wonder, is Yahoo forcing us to load quietly in the background video so we can be bombarded by plenty of video in the future (bad enough the ads!)?
I have the same problem with current Firefox version 59.0 64 bit for Windows
Francine Brailsford commented
You need to at least support all major browsers - IE, Firefox and Chrome. How do you change the format to new mail but don't support the basics? This was almost as bad as when I couldn't retrieve my email on my kindle because you didn't support that!!!!
Sonia Gupta commented
The new yahoo mail is making firefox browser to really lag.
Focus randomly moves away from the current email I am reading.
Lynne Davis commented
Fix the "View raw message" button in Firefox - it doesn't work, despite all ad-blocking s/w being disabled. Works OK in Chrome though.
Secure Connection Failed
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.
(from firefox wb trying to access mail.yahoo.com)

There are advertisements in yahoo email that are redirecting my email to a new page saying security alert. This happens on firefox, chrome, and safari. I have virus software too. I now must block all advertisements.
