Why does Yahoo answers keep automatically taking me to the "recommended" questions!?

Yahoo Answers keeps automatically taking me to the Recommended questions for some strange reason. How do I prevent this from happening? I want to switch it back to the way it was before, when it would take you straight to the Open questions.

    The Question Recommender is a new feature that's being tried out (beta tested) off-and-on with random users.

    It might sometimes be a useful feature, but as you noted what's bad about it is that when you click on a category it defaults to the Recommended tab instead of the Open tab. Sorry, you can't turn that off, although using a different browser may help (right now I'm seeing it using IE but not using Firefox).

    I agree that I don't like it much either, at least not as a default setting, which is why I made a comment about it on the blog (well actually 2 comments because the first one didn't show up right away) and suggest you do too: http://yanswersblog.com/index.php/archives/2012/06...

    You could also post on the Suggestion Board. There are already several threads there. http://suggestions.yahoo.com/srp/?prop=answers&que...

    You might have noticed that we haven't seen the "new" ratings system for quite a while. That was because of the feedback Yahoo! got about it.

    it takes you to recommended because they think those are the questions you can answer easily and you can't change it sadly but it is very annoying i know sorry :(
