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.

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.

I have changed my settings to download images except for spam, but no images ever download. If I can't download images, I have to get rid of my yahoo account. How do I fix this? Nothing I do seems to work? ***

wheel keeps turning but nobodys home...WHY with this dumb new yahoo can i not search the inbox or anywhere else to find emails? SEARCH does not load any results at all. this is an important feature and i see many old complaints. is nobody working to FIX this or what? now i cant post comment because it somehow automatically signed me out? i am signed in, but it canceled that. also it opens a new window every time instead of changing pages. 4 yahoo mail pages open and still cant perform? bummer

Why is mail loading so slow now? Is your new data harvesting software not working properly? What gives?
Jean Wilson commented
I have entered all the contact info, pressed save, and the software ignores me. Please fix.

It is very slow on PCs now and it's very frustrating to use. My PC is fine and everything else works smoothly exept yahoo mail. Please solve this problem, thanks

No images in emails, for at least a couple of weeks. At first I thought it was just a fluke I could wait out, but it's really become an issue. I've tried all the usual things like clearing the cache, etc.
In some emails, if you can't see the images you don't know where to click or why. I end up clicking all over the whole thing looking blindly for the coupon or whatever.
Mac/ Safari, latest versions my computer can use.

At least once a day when I open an email, the command bar with 'move', 'delete', etc disappears, the right hand 3 inches of the email page and the bottom 1.5 inches disappears. The only way I can return to normal operation is to go to the Yahoo Home Page and re-enter my email. I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser and am confident it is up to date. In fact, it seems that the programmers enjoy tinkering and it updates on startup about once every 7-10 days. This is a minor annoyance but it would be appreciated if it could be resolved.

After I open an email it remains as UNOPENED in the mailbox. Prompting me to then REOPEN IT AGAIN. What's going on??

Every time I try to open an email, I get the message that I am offline. I am not, so what gives Yahoo? Hubby is having a similar issue. Is Yahoo having server problems?
Margie Conroy commented
my yahoo.mail is EXTRMELY SLOW this last week. Is it because of the new format that I didn't sign up for???
Jeff Schafer commented
Ditto,....mail.yahoo.com has been EXCESSIVELY SLOW this past week, even after deleting Cache & Cookies, it takes many refreshes & well over 10 MINUTES just to have the Inbox update with the new incoming mail.
