Contacts hard to find, edit, alter, and delete
Since the new changes it has become much more difficult to search and edit or delete a single contact. It would be very helpful if a dropdown menu were available to search by several choices such as ending email address or last name or company. partial name, with the ability to select the item and go to edit.
Clicking "To", "CC", or "BC" takes you to the "Search for search for a contact" window.
That those contacts are in alphabetical order.
However, the "All contacts" list is not in alphabetical order.
Not being in order is a major hardship for users.
Is anything going to be done about this problem? Seems it was reported in August 2019.

Your change of contacts to right side of page reorganized, switched first and last name positions and discombobulated my list. Neither can i find where and how to alter, edit, change, add or delete contacts. Your new system is ****.
Trying to add a contact to an existing contact list is impossible.
Does ANYONE at Yahoo beta test this stuff??
I'm sure it's quite intuitive to the genies sitting at their desks conjuring up all these changes but to the average mail user it remains a joke.

I need a way to categorize my email contacts, e.g. family, friends, services, etc.

I've created a new list and added one contact however when I go to add more contacts they somehow don't exist ?!? Is it because they're related contacts? There needs to be an easier way to add contacts to lists. This used to have glitches but I was able to work around them. Now, there's no way to add contacts to a list.

I use to be able to go into one of my lists and 'edit' and then add a contact. Now it won't let me add any contacts to my existing lists. I have tried EVERYTHING!
Why has it now stopped me from adding a new contact to an existing list?

When you select the contact, it automatically tries to email them, which is annoying, but when you select "edit" and open their details, you cannot see what lists they are assigned to. The only way to check is to go through all of your lists and do a search.

The contact list worked much better before. It being at the side of the screen makes it hard to edit. I liked it full screen, or at least add that option!
Contact lists seem to lag several days behind contacts, at least as far as changes to email addresses.
If I edit the email address in a contact and save it, it seems to be several days before the contact's email address changes in any lists they're a part of. For several days inserting that contact from a list will add the old email address, not the new one. Even removing that contact from the list, saving the list, then adding the contact back in again will still somehow result in the list picking up the old email address. Despite me checking time and again that the contact has the new email address.
A second problem: When someone changes their email address I'll create a new contact "<their name> (OLD)" with their old email address, after updating the email address in the original contact. Now if I want to add the original contact, which has the new email address, to a list I can't. When searching contacts to add to the list it will only return the "John Doe (OLD)" contact, not the "John Doe" contact. I assume this is because there will be many emails with the old email address and very few with the new email address. If that is the case Yahoo is trying to be too smart. It should return ALL matching contacts for a search, not just the ones it feels I may want.

I find it difficult to edit my contacts and IMPOSSIBLE to add, delete or edit my lists within contacts.
This is unacceptable and will force me to change my email completely

All I want to do is update my contact details. Apparently I can make them all look lovely but I cant edit them. What is the matter with you people?!
MARY ANNE CONNELLY commented
Hated it. Tried to get used to, Doesn't work. Still hate it. Bring back the old contacts.
Your new email is atrocious and abhorrent. It couldn't be a worse revision. What in the world did you do.
I want to be able to add my contacts to lists in the edit process
I need to be able to arrange contacts by last name -
David Murphy commented
Many of my contacts from N through Z have vanished. I used to have 20-30 contacts under each letter of the alphabet. Suddenly starting at N I only have 3 or four, the rest are gone.
OMG what did you do... adding contacts is confusing, they do appear to be editable.... and I CANNOT EDIT / USE MY LIST..
WHAT HAPPENED Yahoo.... you will force me to GMAIL.
Michael Yee, You keep posting this to the wrong people. We do NOT work for Yahoo, (or Verizon). We are just USERS, that is 'Consumers', and not employees who can give you the answer you need. In a recent post on this Blog, the ONLY reason I listed the STEPS to handle CONTACT list -- was because I USE Yahoo Email, and I wanted to share ONE solution, Until YAHOO FIXES this!! Michael Yee, you need to contact YAHOO directly.
this. Michael Yee,
