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.

Also, please make sure to update your browser and if the problem still persists try to access Yahoo Mail in another browser.

When I'm trying to read an email in which the text is wider than the small box you've provided to view it in, I don't know how to see any text to the right of your border. I don't see a zoom button so I could zoom out and view all of the text. I don't see a scroll bar so that I could view the ends of the sentences. With this format, you've stolen my ability to view part of my messages.

This is enough of an issue that I am ready to abandon my 15 year old Yahoo. account. SUXXXXXXX

Bring back pages. Get rid of continuous scroll. It keeps freezing and opening the wrong email. Also Move to folders is faulty without the Action button after choosing a folder since it keeps stopping on the wrong folder when it freezes up (I guess because it is too busy trying to populate the ad space instead of continuing the action already in progress). This version SUCKS!!!! Pay for my new PC or return me to a version that works on my old machine. Thanks.

Mail crashed twice within 3 minutes after logging into new interface, when trying to read emails. Chromium on Linux. Ubuntu 18.04. Version 73.0.3683.75 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu , running on Ubuntu 18.04 (64-bit). Not easy to report crashing or feedback through other mechanism on website.
Let us scroll through the whole inbox.

The new version of Yahoo Mail slows down the response time and performance of my Mac computer, and every now and again I get a message pop up in my Yahoo Mail window that says "Closing this window will improve the responsiveness of your Mac".
The speed at which you type an email comes out on the page much slower than usual and you often hear the computer's fan's coming on, meaning it must be using a lot of energy just to use this version of Yahoo Mail.
I want to switch back to Classic Yahoo Mail to stop all these issues.
I am using the latest version of Mac Mojave OS10.14.3 in Safari. Perhaps Yahoo has only thought of Windows users when developing this new version of Yahoo mail?
I am trying to write an email and while my cursor never leaves the document I keep being redirected involuntarily to some ad site. It is not simply annoying. It feels like a privacy violation.
the new mail is painfully slow, go back to classic, I'm seriously considering switching service. I've tried to go back to classic per the instructions in the help file, but the option no longer exist

Just be able to do something!

Yahoo Mail now takes twice as long to download. I've tried all of the ideas that I have found on forums, but none work. What is the problem?
maura Patterson commented
I absolutely detest your new format. Its slower than a snail and it doesn't even look good. Why did you change it? SWITCH BACK TO CLASSIC!
just take me back to the old format that worked!
Evan Wright commented
Can you PLEASE LET ME KEEP A DIFFERENT THEME THAN THE ********** MOUNTAIN VIEW!!! And everytime I do anything it reverts back to the supper dark theme and it won't save the change
William Zarrett commented
When dragging an email from the Inbox into a folder, the folder list does not move smoothly, making it much harder and slower to get to the right folder. The old format was much better!
WTF is wrong with Yahoo Mail?? Get Yahoo Mail working well, and working consistently!!

Yahoo has become really really poor. Won't even enter letters without a lot of my effort.
NOW the "forward" an email button has been greyed out so I cannot forward an email I want to.

Notifications are "On" in Yahoo mail
Notifications are allowed in Chrome (https://mail.yahoo.com)
But nothing appears as a notification.
Could you use the built in Notifications in Windows 10 (same as Facebook etc)
