When i click on a link in an email and a new browser window opens & I try to close that browser window only, it shuts down my inbox and returns to the yahoo homepage. Is there a way to prevent that from happening so I can just return to my inbox?

Crome not opening


There can be several reasons why Google Chrome may be crashing on your computer. One of the main reasons can be your browser user profile is corrupted. You can try creating a new browser user profile and see if that resolves the issue. To do this, you can follow the steps below:
1. Exit Google Chrome completely.
2. Open Windows Explorer by pressing Windows key + E simultaneously.
3. Go to the address bar of Windows Explorer and enter the following address:
For Windows XP users:
%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\
For Windows Vista/ 7/ 8 users:
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\
4. Locate the folder called "Default" in the directory window that opens and rename it as "Backup default."
5. Try opening Google Chrome again. A new "Default" folder is automatically created as you start using the browser.

Window Tab Flashing


I would scan for virsus first. Then a malware scan second. In all likely hood you have picked up a bug somewere. If this does not work, you might try resetting your internet browser. In Internet Explorer (IE), click on tools, internet options, the advance tab, click on reset and then restore advance settings. You will have to close IE and reopen it for the changes to take affect.

The browser you're using refuses to sign in. (cookies rejected) How do I fix this problem when I try to login to my yahoo emails


Hello jwjrhaami jo,
Does it work when you use another browser? What you need to do clear your cookies, your cache, and your browser history. If you are using firefox, go to tools at the top. If you do not see tools at the top of the firefox, then click F10 on your keyboard. Go to tools>options. Then click on privacy tab, from there click on remove individual cookies. A new window should open up, click on remove all cookies then click close. Then click on clear your recent history, again a new window should open up. At the top it should say time range to clear: select everything. under details, make sure the first four are selected (Browsing & Download History, Form & Search history, cookies, and cache). then click clear now. Then click ok and close down firefox. Open it up again and see if you can sign in to Yahoo Mail. Good luck.

When i launch browser a tab appears with a firefox icon saying do you want to restore last session or start new session, Click on either one of these and then it says it cant connect because firefox is...


hi,

Its because the browser that you are you using is not your default browser, I believe that your default browser is Firefox, You can try to restart the computer then open up the other browser that you have which is not Firefox, there will be a message there if you want to make that as your default browser, just click on yes, in that way, it will stopped Firefox to appear everytime you open up a tab.

Note: If nothing happens and still the same, you can uninstall firefox by going to the Control Panel then click on Uninstall a Program ( Windows Vista/ Windows 7 ) Add and Remove Programs ( windows XP ) then look for Mozilla Firefox and then uninstall it.


hope this will help... your response is very much appreciated...

Cannot get to my email vie IE8 or chrome, this started in feb.


you have stated the exact problem but try this one:

(this applies to all windows OS)
after opening the internet explorer,
click tools
click internet options
click advance tab
click reset (not the reset advance. you should also close any program, application or browser except the ie that you opened up for the reset)
after that close the browser and open it up again, try to access your email.

if that doesnt work, if you are using windows XP you could try to uninstall the IE8 so you can go back to IE7.

click start
click control panel
click add/remove program
find the IE8 then click uninstall after that restart computer>

try again access your email
i hope this helps.
Pls rate my resolution thanks!

Problem getting netzero download to download computer says need to close i need to close explorer browser sites but none are open


Please note that I am using Windows XP so Vista may be slightly different but mostly similar.

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and open the "Task Manager". Click "Processes" tab and check the box next to "Show processes from all users". Look for the file name of the web browser you are using and here are two common web browsers.

Microsoft Internet Explorer - iexplorer.exe (If you close explorer.exe by mistake, Windows XP users can go to "Applications", "New Task", and type in "C:/WINDOWS/explorer.exe" or Vista users can simply log out and log in through the task manager.)
Mozilla Firefox - firefox.exe

If you use a different web browser, right click the shortcut for your web browser and click "Properties". The file name will be after the last slash ( \ ) in the target box. File names usually end with ".exe".

Click the file name when you find it and click "End Process" but before you do, you are most likely viewing this with a web browser so this window (and all other windows for your web browser) will close as soon you end the proccess. This means make sure you finish what you are doing and be ready for it to close.
