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.

For the last several months, Yahoo Mail hasn't been able to handle downloading attachments. If I download a photo from an email, then Yahoo can't successfully a) move the email to a different folder (it says "unable to move message to the selected folder") or b) load another attachment (either to download, or to preview) until I refresh the window. What's more, if I download an attachment and then don't refresh Yahoo mail soon enough, it will just spontaneously quit. So if I have, say, ten emails with pictures attached, I have to refresh Yahoo mail after downloading each of the ten pictures, and then yet another time before I can move all the emails to a different folder -- assuming that it doesn't just quit on its own in the middle of the whole procedure. So, to improve New Mail, you should fix this.

Messages are listed as blocked but Yahoo says, "Failed to delete messages from selected senders".

When trying to switch from one account to another in order to view my email to a different address, I recently got stuck on a page that says 'continue switching to' with the second account shown. Clicking 'yes' just reloads the same page and I can't login to view my email. This happened once about a week ago and I thought it was fixed, but today it happened again. This 'continue switching to' feature is completely broken and should be turned off until it has been fixed and properly tested, so that people can access their accounts. It may be feasible to bypass this screen by editing the URL parameters but normal users should not be expected or required to do that in order to use Yahoo Mail.

Recently Yahoo mail has got worse. It has been crashing, emails not sending or saving to drafts, error messages (can't do this operation at this time). If I hadf a choice I would not sign up to a yahoo mail account now. Guys, what is happening?

Yahoo has gone down the drain and is going down the drain further with each passing day. When I draft email, the contact address does NOT autofill even though the address is saved in the Contacts. Your new email sucks each time you come out with new email. Even though I am signed in, this stupid feedback thing does NOT allow me to vote or mark other feedback as Important. Yahoo, who designs your applications? A 2 year old???
The issue is at the Folders section on the left. Thankfully the "Move' function does not have the same issue.
The issue I am experiencing now is that the scroll bar for folders section auto-scrolls itself. I do not even need to use the scroll bar, ALL folders auto-scroll and I have to chase after the folder I want to move the mail into. Suggest to make the scrolling static and users to scroll up and down manually, if dynamic scrolling is making moving mails so challenging.

not only has spam filtering not been working for, what, two months now, but the website for yahoo mail is so erratic one will open spam (THE LAST THING YOU WANT TO DO!) when you try to flag it as spam.
when you try to close the window, the website doesn't even respond.
one has to close the whole browser to do so.
i don't care what your excuse is, i have reported this problem repeatedly for weeks now.
others have too.
your site is becoming a security liability and i will have to close my account after roughly two decades if this problem is not fixed.

Within the last 2 weeks or so I've noticed my Yahoo! Mail window/tab closes itself unexpectedly. I use Firefox to browse. Very odd.

When I open a specific e-mail using Yahoo mail in the latest Firefox browser, the print icon in the upper right corner does NOT work now. It used to. There seems to be other links that do not work, like settings. I went to the Edge browser and everything works. I'm used to Firefox and I prefer it. I am still on Windows 10. Will Windows 11 make any difference.

Mail is constantly in a never ending loop of not loading mail or deleting mail. This is happening more and more frequently. More specifically, when I attempt to delete mail or empty spam or trash, I get the spinning wheel of death and it never completes. Is anyone else complaining about this? It is very frustrating.

Can I have my account restriction fixed to be able to view all my mails. Without upgrading necessarily to yahoo plus.

All those flashing ads are still working fine. Now, if you could just get the actual email pages to work, that would be great. Here is an idea, go back to the version that was working before you started messing with it.
not sure if it's you or Microsoft or other but don't understand why it keeps happening as cannot use the internet as it says I am not connected when I am.
it's happened twice I get this message and keeps me from signing into my account I have to restart my computer in order to sign in. I don't know what is going on I have a malware package so not sure why this keeps happening please investigate Yahoo.
