    I recommend you try a different browser

    Temporary glitches do happen and most of the time Yahoo is

    aware of it and is presently trying to resolve the issue. If you have

    the patience you can wait until Yahoo corrects the problem. If you

    don't have the patience you can switch to another browser to see if it can switch back to see if the problem has corrected itself.


    This link explain what will happen to you if you do not

    have the supported browsers by Yahoo


    This Yahoo link displays the latest versions of IE and MacIntosh

    browsers that work best with Yahoo


    Some users have indicated switching to the

    BASIC format has solved many problems

    Hover your pointer over the GEAR...upper right while in the INBOX view. on SETTINGS...On the next screen place

    a check mark left of BASIC located near the

    ottom of the SAVE.


    If you decide on this format some features are missing..


    In case you are using Windows Internet Explorer 11,

    which is presently causing problems, you might consider

    disabling it and installing IE10.

    To check to see what version you have click on

    HELP....upper left...while in Internet Explorer..

    then click on ABOUT INTERNET

    EXPLORER....the next popup will show you.
