Yahoo mail is so slow
Yahoo mail is so so so slow on my computer. I've been using my college email address instead (gmail) because it works so much better. However, now that I am about to graduate I have been using my yahoo email more - but it's just so frustrating how glitchy and slow it is. I really do not want to have to get an entire new email address (I would definitely use gmail if I made a new one) but if this isn't fixed soon I'm not going to have a choice.
Please try clearing cookies, cache, history, and footprints. To do so, please go to https://help.yahoo.com/kb/new-mail-for-desktop/sln27197.html
Also, please make sure to update your browser and if the problem still persists try to access Yahoo Mail in another browser.

I could not able to see the picture & image with the mail. Even the image in the mail are not getting downloaded in separate tab. Please do the needful.

The delay between someone sending me an email and it being loaded into Yahoo email is interminably long. And you're soliciting us to pay for ad-free content. And then what? We get a brutally bad email system without ads? I'd rather deal with the ads and have a good email system.

Old Emails Won't Load
The Yahoo email web interface is not finding any of my old email -- older than 3 months. Neither a word search nor just scrolling the Inbox can find anything older than 3 months (mid February, 2021). I get a spinning icon, implying Yahoo is trying to load the next batch, but it never completes. Please fix.

Why my yahoo received emails doesn't open? I am very frustrated because when I call to get some help, yahoo customer service tell me that I have to pay in order to get help.

Even though my internet is active, my yahoo doesn't open some of my emails and shows me this msg: "you are offline". But I am not. Could you pplease fix this?

When I get an email from someone who's not in my contacts, the "add to contacts" hasn't functioned for over a week.
So, when I copy the email address, and do it the old-fashioned way, that's only working about 50% of the time.
OK, when it actually works...........IT DOESN'T SHOW UP in a search FOR DAYS!!!
This is just insane. WHO makes a product that we depend on AND PAY FOR, yet it such a poor product. WHEN are you guys going to fix this? Your product was working better 5 years ago than before you gave us "new and improved" It's ridiculous.

The "Scrollbar" in my messages won't let me scroll by click-dragging the scrollbar. I'm using Firefox.

No email using apps. Can receive email via webmail—Yahoo small business.

On My Yahoo webpage, I see mail icon with number of new mail,
however it's incorrect, as i see on my inbox has no new mail.
The number of new mail on icon is from Bin folder even from spam.
So it's been problem on that My Yahoo webpage for months as needs to be fixed , should show only new mail from Inbox only. Also My Yahoo, Today - there is no images showing on 1st page, only go next page, then back, will show the images...

I discovered that this is reproduced easily by downloading a file from an email
I implemented a script that prevents the webpage from reloading (It forces the "You are about to leave the page" popup to display whenever the page is going to reload or close, allowing me to cancel occurrence), and noticed that whenever I download a file that popup appears. I must tell the browser that it is okay to "leave the page" for the file to download.
That's not the issue, however. Not long after the file is downloaded another popup appears asking if I want to leave the page, and clicking yes closes the tab. If the popup did not appear the tab would close automatically.
The closure of the tab is very much unprovoked, and I'm attempting to nail down what script is closing the tab

I have no problems with speed but having extreme difficulty signing. Some say Yahoo has built in several issues in signing so people have to subscribe to paid support.

This just started today (5/12/21).
I can be doing something in a different program or typing an email and the tab will just close by itself. I can Ctrl-Shift-T the tab back open and continue where I left off.
No idea why its doing that. About:Crashes doesn't turn up any results either.
Its ONLY the Yahoo Mail tab as well. Very odd. Any ideas?

Change email provider
Steve Rogers commented
This is not an idea,,, This is a request to fix a problem between you and Apple.
Maybe you should have a better feedback mechanism.
Using Safari on mac is broken. Inline images won't show.

I am unable to send multiple files or documents in a single email. Why do I and my recipient have to download Google Classroom/Dropbox to send/receive those documents needed. Even after all the trouble downloading those apps, I am still unable to send the needed documents to my recipient.
Which MORON'S idea to make life this miserable for us users? All this while we have NO issues sending multiple documents. Why do you complicate things? You think we have the time for all this ****? We chose YOU over other mails. Change it back to the old ways where we can easily send multiple documents.

Glad to learn I am not alone but this has become very tiresome. Open a few emails then it slows down and eventually gives me the "you are offline" message.The only "hack" I have found is to switch to another browser when I get that then switch back when that one locks up.
