  1. Don't like the new look at all. Too harsh on the eyes, to bright. I prefer more muted colours. Earth-tones would be nice, or subtle greys

    How about backgrounds in muted tones, like Earth-tones, chocolate, pastels etc. The harsh colours are too distracting and intimidating. Thanks.

  2. Leave my email alone! If you are going to keep changing the appearance/layout at least give me the option of permanently opting out.

  4. Return it to the way it was. I did not request this change. If this account is not restored I will move all my contacts and close this.

    Restore my account to the way it was. If not I will have to move all my business to a different carrier. I did not request a change and will not stand for you or any carrier just doing what they want.

    I strongly hope that my old account is restored some as I don't want to change but I will.

  13. SEARCH DOESN'T WORK and WHY did they make font too pale to SEE??

    SEARCH doesn't work on this horrid, faint, pale, impossible to SEE
    'new & improved' Yahoo email! We use search a LOT, have always been able to 'drill down' & get EXACTLY what we needed instantly & with PERFECT accuracy! As it SHOULD be with IS with EVERY OTHER email site, ie Gmail, Live, Outlook, Hotmail, etc...

    This "new & improved" Yahoo SEARCH feature is simply BROKEN!
    Please FIX it! **This is BASIC STUFF,** Yahoo! It's not possible to drill down with quotes & specific Folders to search and exempt certain words from the results using the Minus sign.

    We try…

  14. Need to restart browser after laptop wakes from sleep mode to reconnect to Yahoo Mail

    Whenever I have Yahoo Mail open in a Firefox (V54 x86_64 Linux) tab and I put my laptop into sleep mode, upon waking up the laptop, anything I click on in Yahoo Mail does not respond and I have to close the entire browser and open a new browser to reconnect to Yahoo Mail. Other websites do not require this browser restart on wake to continue interacting with their website already opened, and this did not used to happen with Yahoo Mail either.

  18. new email count

    New look (again) and same problem (again). Just like last time when a "new look" was needed for some unknown reason, the new email count fails. When I have a filter active that send incoming mails into another folder than the inbox, these emails are shown in the new email count of the folder, but NOT for the account. So while I think there is nothing new by looking at the account at the top, there in fact may be new ones somewhere in a folder. As with the last time, this is totally annoying.... AGAIN! Indeed, if it ain't…
