Tired of several things on Yahoo

  1. In general I like Yahoo and their email, and the wide variety of thngs
    available.

    A couple of things have, however, proven to be annoying and I'd sure
    like to switch them off if it's possible.

    1) Every single time I open my email, a window pops up that says
    Content is Unavailable and they're working on the problem and to
    check back later. That stays up for a short time and then the mail
    opens.

    2) On the Yahoo home page, either when I'm signed in or not, just
    moving the cursor over the Yahoo Sites menu causes whatever the
    cursor is over to open automatically. I'd so very much rather just open
    what I want by having to click on it. So many times I get all these
    windows that open and get in the way of what I'm trying to look at.
    Any way to change that to require a click to open a Yahoo site?

    More is not always better.

    Thanks

    I agree - the yahoo popups are extremely annoying. I stopped supporting yahoo and their paid email when they became overtly supportive of the democratic party. They won't get another dime out of me.

    Now that I sure wasn't aware of! I would have done the same.

    I use the free email, I'm not sure I'd ever even heard of a paid Yahoo email.
    I usually avoid paid services over the inter net unless there's a very
    compelling reason.

    The HTML pages are written to create those nasty behaviors. It would take a brilliant html filter to stop such actions;
    ie probability of stopping this is 0.000000000001
