Ok, go to Tools->Options->Click on the Privacy tab (a cookie :P ) now in the middle box there should be a blue text link saying: 'remove individual cookies', click that, then down the bottom click "remove all cookies"-> then i think there maybe an are you sure dialog, click yes, if there isn't, you've just cleared your cookies :)

    I can not get yahoo home page to open. Have switched to Google for now. Can not even access my e-mail site from google. Is the site having problems?


    No. Yahoo Mail, Google or Gmail are accessible here in our end.

    Try to access Yahoo Mail in different internet browser (e.g. Firefox, Opera). If the Yahoo page loads up, then the problem has something to do with the current browser that you are using. You may clear the cookies and cache of your browser and see if that will work. Here's how:

    * For Internet Explorer:

    1. Run Internet Explorer and click on 'Tools' menu.
    2. Go to Internet Options and locate the Browsing History section.
    3. Click the 'Delete' button and delete the Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History.
    4. Close the Internet Explorer and re-open it.
    5. Access your e-mail.

    * For Mozilla Firefox:

    1. Run Firefox and hit 'Tools' menu.
    2. Go to 'Clear Recent History' and click the drop-down arrow for 'Time range to clear'.
    3. Select 'Everything' and then click the line beside details.
    4. Check browsing & download history, form & search history, cookies, cache.
    5. Click "Clear Now" button.
    6. Close and re-open Firefox.
    7. Access your e-mail.

    * For Safari:

    1. Open the Safari.
    2. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) and select "Empty Cache".
    3. When asked "Are you sure you want to empty the cache?", click "Empty".
    4. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) then go to "Preferences".
    5. From the security dialog box, click "Bookmarks".
    6. Click on "Show Cookies" button and then hit "Remove All" button.
    7. Select "Done".
    8. Access your email.

    Thank you and good luck!

    The entire yahoo mail seems to be very slow in opening and responding to commands. Can you help?


    First, try to access your Yahoo Mail in a different computer that is connected into different network.

    If Yahoo Mail works correctly, then the problem has something to do with your internet browser or with your network.

    Try to optimize your internet browser by clearing the cookies, cache, internet files and / or browsing history. Here's how:

    * For Internet Explorer:

    1. Run Internet Explorer and click on 'Tools' menu.
    2. Go to Internet Options and locate the Browsing History section.
    3. Click the 'Delete' button and delete the Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History.
    4. Close the Internet Explorer and re-open it.
    5. Access your e-mail.

    * For Mozilla Firefox:

    1. Run Firefox and hit 'Tools' menu.
    2. Go to 'Clear Recent History' and click the drop-down arrow for 'Time range to clear'.
    3. Select 'Everything' and then click the line beside details.
    4. Check browsing & download history, form & search history, cookies, cache.
    5. Click "Clear Now" button.
    6. Close and re-open Firefox.
    7. Access your e-mail.

    * For Safari:

    1. Open the Safari.
    2. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) and select "Empty Cache".
    3. When asked "Are you sure you want to empty the cache?", click "Empty".
    4. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) then go to "Preferences".
    5. From the security dialog box, click "Bookmarks".
    6. Click on "Show Cookies" button and then hit "Remove All" button.
    7. Select "Done".
    8. Access your email.

    If the same problem occur, then it could be a network problem. Contact your ISP to verify if they're having issues.

    Thank you and good luck!

    Yahoo mail site slow when using IE


    Hi,
    It looks as if you are using older version of IE.
    Download IE 8 and see the improvement in speeds.

    Or if you still need a faster browser, download Opera web browser.

    My_yahoo home pages displays slowly...''back'' is slow/hangs


    Try firefox for your browser...this is a option for you to use...if not happy just go back to your IE. Yahoo in the past 4 years to me has had many page loading problems for me an I think this to be server related as they do have 4 servers that have to back up one server, if that server is down...on that note: Try firefox. Also clear your cookies and your registry and Temporary Internet files. Click tools up top and check your internet options.
