    I'm having the same problem. After login, when I try to go to my mail, I get

    Yahoo Mail experienced a login error:



    name: TypeError

    message: 'gExtContent' is undefined

    number: -2146823279

    description: 'gExtContent is undefined



    Then I click OK and the same windows comes back, click OK again it just goes to Loading.... and nothing happens. I think when I was in my Inbox, I accidently clicked on that "Upgrade to the all new Yahoo Mail" and then I hit stop (X) and this is now what I get everytime I try to go into my Inbox.



    Any solutions?

    I have the exact same problem. I've tried disabling add-ons and returning IE 7 to factory settings but nothing seems to work. It looks like there was an anwer at some point in Yahoo Answers but the entry has been deleted. Here's hoping someone will come up with a solution soon.

  • michaelwigle Nov 27, 2008

    I can procide a little more information. When I access my account from another machine Running Ubuntu and Firefox I have no problem getting in. The problem machine has Norton Anti-Virus running but disabling it doesn't seem to help. I've found a few different articles saying Ad Blockers can cause problems but the problem machine doesn't have that. It's definitely a client-side issue but I'm not sure what the source problem is. Problem PC running IE 7 on Windows XP. Let's list our system specs and software that could interfere.

This is not a complete or ideal solution. However, after testing a variety of combinations I found that the only solution to this problem was to completely disable Norton's Internet Security. This allowed me to log into the mail without any problems. I can't find a setting to mark Yahoo as a safe site and to ignore any blocking on it. If anyone knows where to find that option that would be the ideal solution. The problem PC is running Norton Internet Security 2005 AntiSpyware Edition.

    My final answer:



    OK, after some more poking around Norton's IS 2005 I found that if I turn on the NIS toolbar in IE then a dropdown appears. In there was checked an option to block ads on this site. I unchecked that box and everything worked. So, I still have NIS running at full steam but I have disabled it's ad blocking feature for Yahoo and that seems to have fixed the problem completely!

Dear Friends, I have a yahoo mail account registered at uk and ireland location. Since yesterday cannot check my mails as it throws error message as given below: yahoo mail experienced a login error: name:...


Have either of you tried a DIFFERENT computer. Since most likely it's your computer and not Yahoo.

Or install firefox or chrome and try with a different browser.

Not able to open Yahoo


Try clearing your browser cache.

Also, try turning your firewall off, see if you can get through, then turn it back on and try again.

Yahoo mail error


This is quite unusual and there is nothing you can do about this except to report this error to the Yahoo mail technical support team.

Go to the following page

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/forms_index.html

and from it select the form (click the page to get it), that is proper for your report.

Don't send any login information unless they ask for it (they will likely NOT ask for a password, but can ask you for your username).

This error information shows that their mail login processing scripts and possibly their database interface have been corrupted or coded incorrectly, and this is something that only they can fix, not you, the mailbox user. HTH

Yahoo mail login errors


It is pssible to get to your mail by changing your account to Yahoo Classic. To do this you will need to go to Yahoo's home page and click on the 'Mail' link. When the "Error" 1st message comes up click OK. When the 2nd messgae appears move the "Error" message over the "having trouble loggin on" message located in the top right of the of the screen. Locate the OK button over this message. Very quickly, and I mean rapid, click the OK button twice. You may need to do this several times to time it right - it took me three times, When Yahoo's solutions appear just click in the Classic option. I am now back in touch witth the world and although it hasn't resolved Yahoo's problem yoou will, at long last be in touch. I'm not claiming to be a problem solver, I found this in Yahoo's answers.

Hope this resolves your problem. Good Luck
