Why doesn't the Yahoo Web Messenger launch?
When I click on the "Launch Web Messenger" link at http://messenger.yahoo.com/, it no longer launches. Is there a way I can fix this?

quite a few ppl seem to be having problems accessing Yahoo's official web (browser) based IM: http://messenger.yahoo.com/webmsgr/fmsgr.php
perhaps while your waiting for the issue to be resolved you could look at trying another web based IM service, all the below are multi network web based IMs, which allow you to log onto Yahoo's network via your browser (no download required)...
meebo is excellent, reliable and very user friendly, it's recently been updated and is just perfect for web IMing
if it doesn't appeal you could also try...
