Every time I've recommended this solution to someone for their Yahoo Mail problem, it has worked.

The easiest way to sign into your Yahoo email account from Firefox is to download the Webmail notifier add-on. Click here to download:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4490

To add Webmail Notifier it to your toolbar:

1) Right click on your top toolbar and select, 'Customize.'

2) Locate and drag the yellow envelope icon to your toolbar and click, 'Done'.

3) Right click on the yellow envelope icon and choose, 'Options'.

4) Select, Yahoo from the drop down menu.

5) Type in your full email address in the 'User Name' box.

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

7) Click, Add

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

9) Click, OK.

When you want to go to your Yahoo email just click on the little yellow envelope icon.

If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs-up when you rate my answer. Thanks!

    I forgot to add, the envelope will be gray when you don't have any unread emails, but turns yellow when you do.

If you are using Internet Explorer: click tools at the top, then internet options, then security. Click "Custom Level" button, go to the scripting section and disable active scripting. Then Log in to your yahoo mail. Once done you can return to the previous settings.
If you are using Firefox go to tools > options > content. Click on disable Javascript. Then Log in to your yahoo mail. Once done turn it back on.

I can not get my yahoo mail to let me sign in. I will say that the email or password in not correct is correct. I have tryed the only 2 paswords that use.


Good Day Mamarose!

You should try to sign in on Yahoo Mail using a different internet browser.

From my experience, I am using Internet explorer as my internet browser, there are times it will not let me sign in at Yahoo Mail even though my user id and password was type correctly.

I usually open Mozilla Firefox and try to sign in there whenever Internet Explorer will have problems signing me in to Yahoo.

If despite changing internet browser and you still you can not sign in, maybe it is time for you to reset a new password. You can go to
https://edit.yahoo.com/forgot?stage=fe100&src=ym&intl=us&done=http://mail.yahoo.com&partner=
Follow the on screen procedure, it will verify your identity, at the end it will reset your password

Cant open my yahoo mail


Hello.
Make sure you have enter the correct email and password.
If you did, the clear all your browsing history, cookies and cache.
Try to sign-in again.
If you still can't, try to sign-in using another server (eg. if you're using Internet Explorer, then try to sign-in with a different server such as mozilla firefox or google chrome).

When I click on Yahoo Mail I get a Cant display


It sounds like you are using internet explorer. If this is correct, here are some 
troubleshooting steps you can try:

First of all, Did you check to see if you are connected to the internet? If so, try refreshing your browser.

Option 2- Close your browser and then reopen it. Type in www.yahoomail.com and see if the sign in page shows up.

If none of these options work this may be a problem that you would have to contact micosoft about. The microsoft website has trouble shooting forums, live chat with a microsoft technician, email a technician, and there  is also most recent information related to popular issues with internet explorer, specifically to "internet explorer not displaying the webpage" 

Another suggestion I have for you is that if you have another internet browser such as "Mozilla Firefox" Try accessing yahoo mail that way. 

Hope this helps!

Hi, You need to check for viruses/worms on your system and ensure there is no fault with your modem/internet band connection. Try using alternative browsers apart from Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari or Google Chrome.

Can't access yahoo from firefox but can from internet explorer


Check Preferences-> Advanced -> Network -> Connection. If you use a proxy, make sure it is set up correctly. Also clear out the cookies and the cache. If that doesn’t help you might need to reinstall Firefox.
