Hi tlk2012, I think yours is the third problem posted today with Yahoo as the home page. I'll link to the other threads for reference and commiseration, but there isn't a solution in them yet:
Maybe the three of you can recognize some common factor that might be causing this?
You can check the Web Console and Network Monitor for possible reported errors.
- "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Web Developer
You can check the Network Monitor to see if content is blocked or otherwise fails to load.
If necessary use "Ctrl+F5" or "Ctrl+Shift+R" (Mac: Command+Shift+R) to reload the page and bypass the cache to generate a fresh log.
