Since the last Firefox update, I have been experiencing issues with Yahoo Mail. I am using Windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop, and my security is provided by Kaspersky, which I just recently updated as well.
At first I thought the issue was related to the Kaspersky update, but apparently not since Yahoo Mail works just fine in Internet Explorer.
I do not, however, want to use Internet Explorer; I much prefer Firefox. The problem is that when I log in to my Yahoo Mail account, the drop down menus don't work, for instance, Settings, Account, and Sign-out. Moreover, if I want to reply to an email, I have to keep clicking on "Reply" and sometimes even click "R" on the keyboard before the dialogue box opens. The same thing happens when I want to Forward an email. What's more, when I try to delete emails or empty the Spam or Trash boxes, I cannot always accomplish this by checking emails and then clicking "Delete.
Finally, when I get ready to sign-out of Yahoo Mail, I have to click on Home, go to the Yahoo homepage, and only then will the drop-down menu work so I log-out. One thing I have noticed is that there are no longer ads on the right-hand side in Yahoo Mail. I am not tech savvy, so I would greatly appreciate if someone could address this question, and if you know what's causing the problem, tell me how to resolve it but tell me in layman's terms.
Once upon a time, I was here asking questions. Now, I answer them. Some day, you can do the same. Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily turns off hardware acceleration, resets some settings, and disables add-ons extensions and themes. If the problem goes away, that tells us one thing. If it does not, Whats the word 264 yahoo dating tells us something else.
Is the problem still there? Under Advanced, Select General. Look for and turn off Use Hardware Acceleration. Thank you so much for responding.
I have cleared cookies, cache, active logins, and viewing and download history. In fact, I clear them every night as a rule. I also run CC Cleaner on a regular basis. Personally, though I could be wrong, I think the problem is related to the fact that Firefox no longer supports Java Script, and based upon all of my research, Java Script is a necessity for sites to run correctly and for certain features, like drop-down menus, to work properly, as well as for ads to show, and as I mentioned before, the ads no longer show on Yahoo Mail.
Nor, for that matter, do they show on my blog when I view it or Whats the word 264 yahoo dating most of "Whats the word 264 yahoo dating" sites I visit. It says that Java Script is no longer supported, or something to that effect. I just know that I much prefer Firefox to other browsers, but this is getting really aggravating.
Last night, in fact, it was worse. I could barely do anything in Yahoo Mail, and after a while I simply gave up, went to Internet Explorer, and did not have a problem at all. Ergo, the problem is definitely with Firefox.
Using external programs on Firefox is known to cause issues. FF settings can be set up to do this on it's own. Version 8 Update 65 Release date October 20, http: Hello Fred, and thank you for responding once again.
You are very patient, and I appreciate your help. First, since I am not especially computer proficient, how can running a program like CC Cleaner cause issues? It has been my understanding that CC Cleaner is a "good" program, and I have used it for years without problems.
Second, I know you think I'm a real "dummy," but I really don't know anything about settings for add-ons. Could you perhaps recommend a good site where I might learn about them? Third, no, I haven't run Firefox in Safe Mode, because I don't know how, and, plus, I'm afraid that something might go awry if I even attempt it. Fourth, doesn't Java automatically update or at least send those little "update now" messages? When I get one Whats the word 264 yahoo dating those messages to update something, I do.
On the other hand, Windows automatically updates, as does Kaspersky, without my having to do anything. Finally Are you breathing a sigh of relief? The drop-down menus were back, as were the ads. However, this anomaly, for want of a better word, happened a few days ago, but the next time I logged in to Yahoo Mail, nothing was working as it should.
Isn't that rather strange? Why would it suddenly be all right but then, just as suddenly, be messed up again? Do you have any ideas? Fred, I cannot thank you enough for being so patient and for taking time to respond to my questions in such detail, as well as language that a layperson like me can understand.
I truly appreciate it, and I mean that sincerely.
The strange thing is that when I logged-on tonight and went to Yahoo Mail, once again everything was working as it should. You said that a "corrupt file" could have been causing the issue, and maybe that was the case, though I can't help but wonder how the file suddenly ceased causing a problem if it was corrupt. Picture me looking befuddled. The only thing different that happened prior to Yahoo's suddenly behaving was that I received 28 updates from Windows Whats the word 264 yahoo dating Wednesday night.
Could one of those updates have resolved the issue? Then again, the next time I go to Yahoo Mail, Whats the word 264 yahoo dating could be "wacky" again, but I'm not going to allow myself to consider that possibility, and instead try to think positive.
Again, Fred, I really appreciate your help. You are very knowledgeable, and I want to thank you for being so generous as to share your knowledge with me. I hope you have a nice weekend.
