Too many ads!!!
Ad overload. I don't mind ads, but your interface takes it to new extremes, especially when I try check a folder with no messages in it.

Stop showing so many advertisements

Seems like yahoo mail is spending lots of time searching for ads, google.leads, vid...
This is causing performance issues like jumpy scrolling down a page and delay waiting for page to change/complete.
Is yahoo email performance tied to the speed of some other advertising servers?
I don't mind advertisements... every company chooses how to gain revenue. Got it!
My complaint about some of the advertisements is the automatic PLAY on video ads!!! (yes, THREE exclamation points)
The auto-play on video ads causes the email to freeze up, waiting for part of the ad to start. This happens irregularly, so while I am deleting emails, the ads start to run and halts my ability to click on anything. Not everyone has a supercomputer with light-speed processors.
The video ads that auto-play cause Yahoo Mail to freeze until the ad starts... which is VERY inconvenient and extremely annoying (like my use of caps and parenthesis).

Constant loading of advertising makes every other function on my computer clitch out. Time for gmail?

Please remove the constant loading of ads on the email page. Even basic email functions (inbox, deleting, composing emails) all get bogged down so bad as to be VERY frustrating! If anything, just load two ads upon startup, and then stop! You don't have to keep refreshing ads here...I highly doubt users will stop writing their email halfway to go click on an ad!
