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.

I cannot see pics or even click on messages to see atachment and Yahoo Help has no way for me to get answers

Whenever I type a message, there is a looong delay before I see what I have typed. This does not happen elsewhere in Yahoo or other apps.

When I open up my email from Medium.com, the graphics are not appearing anymore. I can see them on my iPhone when I access my email, but not on my iMac desktop.
I've already checked my settings, so please don't suggest that.

Delete not deleting, cursor jumps to address line. Fix these problems that started with your 'improvements' a year ago.

FIX IT SO THAT IT WORKS RIGHT
Paul Haviland commented
There are other posts on this but nothing that I can vote for. I can open the Yahoo email webpage fine in Chrome but many actions like changing the folder that I view causes the page to redraw incorrectly. I can reset the view for a bit by just changing the Page Zoom setting but it does not solve the problem permanently. This is making the web application unusable using Chrome. It works fine in Firefox but that is not always an option for me. Please consider expanding your list of supported/tested browser to include one of the more popular ones (Chrome).

The preview for documents is not working. I previewed a doc I had sent and it showed the original doc from 8 months ago! This is a huge security risk!

For the last two months, I cannot print any emails with photos in them. i.e. a receipt from a clothing company that has photos of what I purchased, or a receipt from an airline. It simply prints as blank. I have to forward the email to my work address to print it. I am using the most current version of Firefox 72.0.2.

Safari/Mac new bug- When I go to delete or move a message it jumps to my last sent message. Once go back to inbox then it works.
This never used to happen and now it happens all the time.

Email system crashes all the time. Annual fee is too high for such a system.

To start, i just wanted to check my ** email and my "2 factor" authentication failed three different times saying "time out" when i tried to sign in. I just opted to make my mail less secure by removing this because, being so "secure" that even i can't log in, is ridiculous.
second, after getting into my mail, i clicked to go back to "basic" version and it signed me out all over again. ANY OTHER MAIL SERVICE is starting to look way better.
third, there are broken ad's on the screen. Can't even get money grubbing right? My phone was receiving the emails i was waiting on while the inbox online was "up to date" after refreshing several times.
finally, i was thinking maybe i will leave some feedback, and as soon as i clicked on THAT, i was signed out again. You have officially failed at everything.
At this point I no longer care about my mailbox. I will be moving to gmail now.

My e-mail isn't showing up after the current date. So I can't access e-mails sent one day earlier or before. Also, I cannot delete e-mails from my inbox. What is happening to my e-mail account? If this continues, I will have to use another e-mail service.

not only ads, but also continuous scrolling could cause this. They should go back to numbered pages, if people want that. and allow us to choose the number of emails to be displayed per page. But yahoo is idiots and trying to update in ways that are just not helpful at all.

When typing a long reply to an e-mail, i lose my cursor due to the page auto-scrolling to the top every time i type, forcing me to stop and scroll down to check my typing. Even when i scroll down, as soon as i type, it pops back to the top of the page. This is a new issue. Thanks for your time.
