Yahoo Glitch or Just Me?

This is the 4th day I can't do anything on YAnswers - except ask a question here.

Can't read questions or answers (mine or others) . . .can't Comment, Can't Answer . . . . . just get "Ooops . . . there's a problem".

I guess it won't help to ask this - because if anyone else has the same problem, they can't answer !!!!!!

We've suspected for years that "they" want to drive us away - - - they are succeeding.


Being computer illiterate, have spent the past week trying everything I could think of (clearing cookies, cache, browsing history, etc etc etc) to no avail......and being on a Chromebook my options limited. Found it puzzling that I had no problem with any other site or function - including other Yahoo products - just Answers. In desperation, did a complete scrub today - and now YAnswers works as in the past. Wish I knew what "improvement" locked me out for a week.!

    It would help to know how you are accessing the site. What kind of device? What browser? Is your browser in desktop mode if you are on a mobile device?

    I access the site mostly via PC but haven't had a problem answering questions lately, with any of the browsers I have (Chrome, Firefox, and Opera). I do sometimes access the site via my Kindle Fire, and as of yesterday evening that was working as per usual as well.

    If you haven't already done so, try a different browser on your device and if that doesn't help, try using a completely different device. That'll help you figure out if the problem is related to your account (the website) or your device or the method in which you are accessing YA on that device.

    Try using another browser. I have glitches on Opera but Firefox works okay.

    So you have been here ten years and are still amazed enough when Yahoo is glitchy to ask questions about it?
