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.

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?

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.

When I open an email and click view details or attachments it just scrolls and won't open
Andrea Thibeault commented
Not sure what's going on. It's the app that's giving me issues. It won't show new emails and when I try to refresh it, it just keeps thinking! I log onto my laptop and it's fine. Not sure if Yahoo is not keeping up with the IOS updates or not but it's very frustrating!!

What did YAHOO do? The response time is TERRIBLE!!!
This is on my Laptop and Cell.
Whatever changes were made have been detrimental.
I have had YAHOO for YEARS. It has NEVER been like this.
Laura Hampton commented
Why will yahoo.com not open as my home page even though I have it set as my home page? All it does is keep showing the loading thing but it never loads. Jeez, I"m sick of Yahoo.com having constant problem!!! I have tried all I know to try to fix this with, obviously, no luck.
