How can we improve New Mail?

Ad blocker is for my protection, not to deny you ad revenue

Until third-party ads stop being a significant source of malware, using an ad blocker is a smart, even necessary, protective measure. When you can assure me that it's not possible for a malicious ad to make its way into my browser via Yahoo or any ad network is uses, I'll be happy to add Yahoo to my whitelist.

    We LOVE ads. But TRUE ads, the ones who want to SELL, hence to PLEASE, hence who will NEVER place them in the way of what I am doing.
    I don't accept any more to disable my Adblocker temporarily for a site: when I did, I was immediately assaulted by EVEN MORE of those FALSE ads with AUTOPLAY, OVERLAY, and other deliberate offense: FALSE ads because they NEVER HAS any intent or chance to sell anything to anyone, their ONLY effect (if not intent) is to destroy the web

    I agree. When Yahoo can guarantee mail won't be infected Ill consider pausing m,y Ad blocker. I sure we all know this won't happen just like me pausing my blocks won't happen. Too many bad people out there. I will always protect myself as well as I can.

    Stop with the pop up asking me to turn off ad blocker. Not going to do it.

    Stop ads in Email, email is all one wants, so stop asking to turn off ad block

    Every time I see the stupid ad blocker pop up, I want to say the following:

    I've noticed you're still not serving ads without tracking. I've configured my ad blocker to allow ads from ad networks that do not track. Please serve ads without tracking so you can maximize your revenue potential from my account.

    The ads eat screen space, The ads eat bandwidth. On a mobile device the bandwidth & screen hogging of these ads cripple the mobile device. The ads can't be guaranteed to be malware free. The ads are selected from spying on the customer. The scanning/reading of the email violates privacy. I've stopped using the account for anything new. In 2016 I got an email from yahoo talking about the hacking.

    How can anybody trust this company anymore with anything remotely private?

    Yahoo, what does - I DO NOT WANT TO SEE ANY POP-UP ADS don't you understand!! I use adblocker because I AM SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING POP-UP ADS and a automatic WINDOWS media screen when I view e-mail.

    Give rid of the pop-up ads I DO NOT NEED TO SEE THEM!

    reminder that using ublock origin allows one to block ad domains in such a way that the pop up never appears because the domain is never resolved on your machine. Why use Adblock or adblock plus when you can block domains by domain name, ensuring they never are able to process that annoying check for ad blocking?
    source code and download for a better ad blocker: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock

    Yep, im going to continue using my ad blocker too. ******** yahoo. why is it that everytime you ******** 'update' ****, it looks, feels, and operates like a piece of 90's ****? I get it that you need to make money, but you dont do that by ******* your customers overt and doing **** that doesnt help any of your customers, it just makes some yahoo employee look good. customer service used to mean something. Now it means you take a **** on your customers.

    Your popup makes me feel that I use my account in an unsecure or bad way. However, I do the opposite, since I qualify ads as malware! This popup with the sad emoji icon is ridiculous!

  • Ryan Lannom commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Pleas yahoo your ads are giving out malware please fix or i wont use your services

    I have been a faithful Yahoo customer for many years, through tough times and good times. This new pop up to go add free is so annoying. I find it very disruptive. I will switch if it stays. We need a way to say "no thank you" to the add free pop up and make it go away.

    I specifically pay for an Ad Blocker because I DO NOT WANT TO SEE ADVERTISING in my EMAIL INBOX.
    Since the main Yahoo site is FILLED with advertising - don't tell me that filling my Yahoo Mail site with annoying adverts is going to generate ONE PENNY of revenue for Yahoo.
    It will, instead, have the direct opposite effect - I WILL DELETE EVERY SINGLE YAHOO MAIL COUNT I HAVE.

    I don't use an ad blocker, I use a virus protection program. Seems to work just fine. If you want to pay for the service Yahoo gives without ads, get Pro. It's $3 a month, cheap.

    I already deleted yahoo from one of my browsers because of all of the 3rd party cookies and the ad tracking. I can easily do it from google , too. I don't have to use yahoo. There are many other choices out there for email. many do not have the adware/cookies etc. that you do. You do not need to know what I do on other sites. It's none of your business.

    Your stupid pop up when I try reading my email is getting old. I don't need to White List any site including Yahoo! I have no issue with dropping my Yahoo email account and using my MSN account, if you want to play this game you all can kiss my A$$!

    I installed Ad Blocker because I DON'T WANT TO SEE ADS. Your site is filled with malware ads. Can't you make sure your ads don't leave malware in the first place? Till then, never turning off adblocker.
