Yahoo homepage will not load on my PC, or takes 5-10 minutes if I decide to wait that long. Every other website loads more or less instantaneously. Been having this problem on and off for last 2-3 weeks. Any ideas?

When you say homepage I assume you don't want to load yahoo site whenever you open a web browser. TO change your web homepage you need to go to the following:
for Firefox 6.01. (Most likely all firefox ver. are similar)
- Click tools - Click Options - Go to General TAB - type the website you want to be on your homepage at HOME PAGE box or Start page for other version
For Internet explorer 8 (other version are similar but not identical. Just look for tools) - Click tools - Click Internet Options - Go to General TAB - type the website you want to be on your homepage at HOME PAGE box or Start page for other version
For Google Chrome - Click the wrench icon on the top right side - Click options - Click Basics - At the HOMEPAGE section type in the website you want to load
Basically thats all. Please note browsers has different version but always look for the tools menu
my yahoo is taking forever as well. i suggest trying two things. reboot the computer and use a differnet browser. and download from filehippo.com a program called cccleaner and run the cleaner it will remove any junk temporary internt files that may be affecting the loading of yahoo. also go to java.com to see if you need to update your java
Could be either a poor internet connection or just poor server response time from yahoo. Its probably struggling to load and just times out. This happens to me with just about any website from time to time. Try repairing your internet connection, or just waiting for another time (side note...Mozilla Firefox is the way to go)
This could be a temporary problem with Yahoo or it could be a connection issue. Make sure that you can get to other websites and that they work properly. If you can, then wait 10-15 minutes and try to access your mail again.
