    When I open my email account on my PC, it takes ages to display the page and it is not in the same format as it was the previous day.Its display has no background or pictures. Yahoo help suggests a few things but I don't think they will work.I have tried on IE and Mozilla and no change. I have tried a system recovery to a date last week and also cleared the "cache". I use a laptop on the same modem/router and that is displaying correctly.I have to guess that a setting has changed on my PC as the rest of my familes email pages are OK. Any one got a solution for this?

Tried to dowload and/or update any existing java uplett, but still shows red squares intead of images. Please note - it doesn't have any cross (X) anywhere, as some other proble comment. It's only red square intead of image. Please help. My email is as follows: MANY THANKS for any help. Happy New Year!!!

    I had the same problem with red blocks. The solution by unchecking Ad Blocker under Pop Up Blocker in Verizon Internet Security Suite fixed it. Thanks so much! I spent an hour with a Verizon tech remoting in to my laptop and he finally gave up. You'd think he'd know that!!

    There is a big red square that covers the middle of my homepage! I cant even click my mail icon, or weather icon b/c its blocked by the big red square of death. how the hell do i fix this

  • DonnaFromGa Mar 13, 2009

    I have the box with the red x in the box.. nothing shows up.. I can forward it to another email and it shows up there.. So I know something is wrong with Yahoo.. you can't just click on anything either, navigation is terrible.. Nothing works right! When you try to access Yahoo mail you will get a page that tells you that you connection has been lost, either a google page or an Internet Explorer page..Please fix it! Thanks..Donna

I was able to fix the problem. I'm running Verizon internet security suite. Under the pop up blocker section there was a second pop up blocker called ad blocker. I unchecked that one (disabled it) and the problem was resolved. No more red bars/blocks.

Open the Preferences of your Ad Blocker (should be in your AntiVirus Software) (not the pop-up blocker), scroll through the list of entries. Delete "" and you should now have pictures.

Also, you can simply uncheck the Ad Blocker box to disable the Ad Blocker.

How do I fix my yahoo email page? When it opens each email is covered about half way up by the following email, can't really be read; then the next and the next and so on...all covered by the overlaping...

1. This is how you're going to get your answer. But if you had registered, you'd get a notification.
2. Please do not use an old browser. Try Chrome or Firefox, instead.
If you're using those two: Wow. Try clearing the cache and cookies, or press Ctrl-F5 when you visit the page.

If you are unable to sign in to Yahoo! Web Messenger, you may see an error message such as "Website Blocked" or a notification explaining that your login credentials are incorrect.

If your computer does not meet the minimum system requirements, the browser may not be able to display the page at all.

Confirm that your computer meets the system requirements and that the Yahoo! Web Messenger website is not blocked on your network, and confirm that your password is correct to sign in and begin chatting online. No Account
To log in to Yahoo! Web Messenger, you must have a Yahoo! account.
This enables your friends to add you to their contact lists and chat with you.

It also gives you access to other services such as Yahoo! Mail.
To create an account from the Yahoo! Web Messenger page, click the "Get Started" button, and then click "Sign Up" on the following page.

Provide the requested basic information, including your name and birth date, and select your desired username and password.

Incorrect Password
When signing in to Yahoo! Web Messenger, you must provide the password that you selected when creating your Yahoo! account.

If you provide an incorrect password when signing in, Yahoo! Web Messenger displays the error message "Invalid ID or Password."
Click the "I can't access my account" link at the bottom of the sign-in screen.

On the following screen, click "I forgot my password" and then click "Next."
Follow the prompts to verify your identity and reset your Yahoo! password.

System Requirements
You may see errors if you attempt to use Yahoo! Web Messenger on a computer running an older operating system such as Windows 2000 or Millennium Edition, as Web Messenger requires Internet Explorer 6 or newer. Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Safari are also officially supported.

If you have confirmed that you are running a supported browser, navigate to the Adobe Flash Player page at

The screen should display the message "Adobe Flash Player Successfully Installed."
Download and install Adobe Flash if you do not see this message.

Website Blocked
If you receive an error message such as "This page has been blocked" when you attempt to access the Yahoo! Web Messenger page, your network administrator has elected to block the website in the network's firewall.

Parents can also use home routers to block websites.
Ask your parents or network administrator to remove the block so you can use Yahoo! Web Messenger.

    - You'll see a message that says "Pop-up blocked. To see this pop-up or additional options click here...".
  2. Click on that yellow bar at the top of the browser window ' select Always Allow Pop-ups from This Site ' click Yes on the confirmation dialog.
  3. Click Sign-in again.

For Safari:

The sign out area on my Yahoo email account is blocked and I can't sign out. Please assist me in correcting this problem

I'm not sure what exactly you mean by "blocked" but if the window you have opened isn't all the way maximized, then some buttons on the email page may be covered by other buttons, so just maximize the window. Or possibly you just need to refresh the page? If neither of those are the case, try switching your Yahoo page to Mail Classic by clicking on the "Options" drop-down and then Sign Out. If you want to switch back just click on "All-New Mail" in the upper left-hand corner.

Alot of red boxes on my page on yahoo

Does this happen at other sites? Is this a work account or home account? Which browser are you using?

If it is all sites and work related your employer is probably blocking photo hosting sites. These use a lot of bandwidth to load.

If it's a home account and limited to Yahoo then you need to review your browser settings under security to see how Yahoo is being treated.
