This can be caused by corrupted cookies.

"Clear the Cache":
  • Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"
"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:
  • Firefox > Preferences > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"
If clearing the cookies doesn't help then it is possible that the filecookies.sqlite that stores the cookies is corrupted. Rename (or delete)cookies.sqlite (cookies.sqlite.old) and delete other present cookie files like cookies.sqlite-journal in the Firefox Profile Folder in case the file cookies.sqlite got corrupted.

Hope that doesn't sound too confusing!!! Before you do that, try going though Internet Explorer and see if you can log on that way. That way you will know if its just firefox or another problem, if so than do what I wrote above!! Hope this helps you!! (*_*)

I have not been able to open the yahoo.com site at all


There are several problems that could cause you not to be able to login to your Yahoo email account. Each will be discussed below.

PHISHING or HACKING

First, have you replied to any emails that requested your Yahoo email login information? If so, your password may have been changed by someone else. If you listed an alternate email address when you signed up for Yahoo? If so, on the Yahoo sign in page you can click on 'Forgot Password' and an email can be sent to your alternate email address that will allow you to set a new password. Or - you can answer the security questions to gain access to your Yahoo account as well.

PROBLEMS WITH YAHOO MAIL AUTOMATIC SECURITY

Yahoo security programs will result in you not being able to log into your Yahoo email account. Yahoo has several security features which cause many problems.

If you know that the problem is not caused by entering an incorrect user name or password, there is a work-around to get into Yahoo mail. And, it takes less than 5 minutes to set it up. However, you must use the Firefox browser to do so.

(Note: Every time I've recommended this solution to anyone for their Yahoo Mail problem, it's worked.)

The easiest way to sign into your Yahoo email account is to use Firefox as your browser and download the Webmail notifier add-on for Firefox.

With the click of a mouse, you'll be sent directly to your Yahoo email page without having to manually sign in to Yahoo mail and it will bypass Yahoo's security features that cause login problems.

Click here to download Firefox: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4490

ADDING EMAIL NOTIFIER TO FIREFOX:

To add Webmail Notifier to your Firefox toolbar click here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4490

1) After downloading Webmail notifier and re-starting Firefox, right click in an empty area on your TOP toolbar in Firefox and select, 'Customize.' (A window with icons will open.)

2) Locate the icon of a small envelope. (This is the Webmail notifier icon.) Then, drag the 'envelope icon' to your upper toolbar and click, 'Done'.

3) Once the envelope has been placed on the top toolbar in the Firefox browser, right click on the envelope icon and choose, 'Options'. (A window will open.)

4) Select, Yahoo from the drop down menu.

5) Type in your full Yahoo email address in the 'User Name' box. (ie.: my_name@yahoo.com)

6) Type in your Yahoo mail PASSWORD in the password box.

7) Click, 'Add'

8) Make sure 'Enable Login' is checked that the bottom of the box.

9) Click, 'OK'.

Now, when you want to go to your Yahoo email just click on the little envelope icon and you'll be sent straight to your email page in Yahoo. You will never need to login to yahoo again.

Tip: The envelope icon will remain gray when you don't have any unread emails in your Yahoo mail 'In Box', but will turn yellow when you do have new emails.

It dont opening to yahoo mail


There are 2 generic solutions for these type of problems.

1) Clear all the Cookies and browsing history.

2) If 1 is of no avail, then shift to some other browser, like G-Chrome, Firefox.

And if you are still in trouble, then drop an E-Mail to Yahoo support, and wait for some time.

Regards, WAQAR.

So is there a solution?


Hello!
There was a warning on Yahoo a while back about an issue with Firefox and Flash, I believe. Just as you went to Yahoo mail this warning popped up saying you had Firefox and Flash and you may have trouble with Yahoo mail.

Let's update the software(s) in question and that should clear things up.

First, update Firefox by going to "Help" at the top right of the menu bar. You should see something about updating there. Click it and follow the prompts.

Secondly, make sure your Flash is completely updated. Go to the Adobe Flash website (Click here...) and install the latest and greatest version. Make sure you're in Firefox when you do this!

If all else fails, use Internet Explorer or some other web browser to access Yahoo mail until everything shakes out. You'll probably get updates over time that will help this problem (if we don't fix it first).

Good luck! Remember to rate the solutions!
