* Open the Firefox browser * Click on Tools * Click on options * Click on the Advanced button * Under tabbed browsing you have three choices. o “a new window” will open a new browser window with each new link. o "a new tab in the most recent window" will open a new tab in the current browser window. o "the most recent tab/window" will open the link in the tab or window that is currently open. * To retain the window you had open before you clicked on the link you should choose either "a new window" or "a new tab…"

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:
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.

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.
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.
CLEAR YOUR BROWSER'S CACHE
1. Close all browser windows and open a new one.
2. Clear your browser's cache including temp files, cookies, and
history. If you do not know how then follow the instructions on the
help page for the specific browser and browser version you are using: LINK
3. Close that browser window and open a new browser window and sign into your Yahoo Mail here: LINK
4. Reboot if needed!
5. If you are still having a problem with the website, try an
alternative browser such as Firefox. It is always good to have an
alternative browser so you can test and check to see if your problem is
1. In you spam folder in yahoo mail-delete all spam.
2. Go to trash folder and click on empty link.
3. If you are using Internet Explorer, go to tools>option>delete browsing history. This will clear your browser cache and cookies. Then close the browser window and open a new one.
4. If you are using Firefox, click ctrl+shift+delete keys at the same time to clear your browsing history. This will clear your browser cache and cookies. Then close the browser window and open a new one.

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...
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!
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.
