    I totally agree. I wish the CONTACTS icon that is moved to just above the new side bar display worked by sending the user back to the full page display. And hopefully, that full page format would work like it did prior to July, 2019, when all functions worked successfully. Now, a full month after the change, my contacts are impossible to manage the way I want and all Yahoo is doing is gathering comments. I don't think the issues I have seen all over these feedbacks is a quality control issue. I think they implemented exactly what they wanted. But their motivation was to help Yahoo for some unknown internal reasons, not to make the Yahoo Email experience better for its users. When will they learn that we and the advertisers are paying their salary and it is not a good idea to make the customer experience poorer.

    Yahoo changed the way contacts are displayed and updated in July, 2019, and they crippled it to the point that it no longer works for me. Several functions have been removed that I need when composing emails. I want the full screen display to be returned AND corrections made that are documented in this feedback string and in various other referring to the July, 2019 change.

    After clicking the CONTACTS icon at the very right and bringing up the new (unusable) format, there is another trio of icons moved to the top of this display. CONTACTS, CALENDAR, and NOTEPAD. The CALENDAR and NOTEPAD icon do exactly what this user want, a return to the full page display so we can manage this topic, Clicking the CONTACTS icon does not do this. It merely closes the contacts display and returns the user to the email page. This would be the ideal place to correct this error and bring the user to the full page display. YAHOO, PLEASE CORRECT THIS BUG. Using the very narrow display not only is difficult, but Yahoo has taken away a number of functions available in the older full page display. So, Yahoo, not only am I asking you to correct the non-action of this icon, when that is fixed, please give us back the full page display that allows us to do all the things we used to do, like displaying the CATEGORY a contact belongs to, giving us the ability to add and change CATEGORIES, ability to print and export contacts with all the old fields returned to the CSV file. Right now I am crippled in how I use Yahoo mail because of what Yahoo has taken away from us in the name of efficiency and moving forward.

    Thought of one other missing feature -- Being able to sort the contact list by LAST NAME. The default by first name is terrible

    TOTALLY AGREE. Also, several features of the old format are missing or do not work as suggested by some of Yahoo's help articles. 1--cannot print emails, 2--exporting to CSV leaves out several fields such as the LIST/CATEGORY name, 3--pressing the TO, CC, or BCC link displays an EMPTY address book, 4--you cannot see, add, remove, or change the LIST/CATEGORY an entry belong to, 5--no way to import entries from a CSV file.

    The new CONTACTS format does NOT allow for printing which I really need. I do export to CSV file BUT BUT, the new format does not export all the fields that were in the old format, especially the CATEGORY field (also called LIST field). And, several others are missing. WHEN IS YAHOO GOING TO REALIZE THAT IMPROVING A FEATURE DOES NOT MEAN TO CRIPPLE IT AND REMOVE OLD FEATURES. LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS !!
