Have to continually refresh, reload, clear broeser cache, force close app just to get yahoo working properly. Every other site works just fine. You try to reply or compose a message and the letters of getting mixed up as I type and even spacing goes 2 or 3 spaces out per letter even letter start going behind and in front of eachother what the heeeeeck....In any part of yahoo mail when you click to do something it will start load an 1 mil of a second it immediately get stuck or starts loading slow then goes to like a connection lost or server down page which have to refresh 30 times to bring it back up. Another example out of the many is attachments don't want to open after clicking on the paper click (PAGE TIMES OUT) amazing and will get Yahoo didn't save the draft losing everything typed yet all the sudden attachments open then the next battle is trying to get the attachment to go which takes hours just to upload attachments. This problem has been going on for years and happens to a lot of people as I see in other forums. Will continue to surch for an answer till meet a computer mastermind.

Hi

Please appreciate that you do have 46 tabs open. You may wish to close a few to help your mobile device perform better and for Firefox to find opening some heavier pages much easier.

No sir even when all tabs are closed it still happens. Thankfully though that we can save all our tabs every time open browser and I have had up to 150 tabs open at once, all working just fine. It's probably a problem with yahoo and firefox capabilities because it works just fine with the chrome browser app. Maybe something to do with extensions/plugins, javascript or the programming language, etc.. but right now (was this fixed?) am trying the Yahoo seems to be working great this whole week, you guys are truly amazing! I love firefox best browser ever, hope you stay blessed!

Amazing I hit send and it loads a half of an inch then stuck for 1-2 minutes than baaam: The connection has timed out

The server at mail.yahoo.com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your mobile device’s data or Wi-Fi connection. 

HIT THE GO BACK A PAGE: page times out HIT REFRESH PAGE: back to inbox with last massage (I learned to copy and paste) reopen mail>past>send>stuck for 5 minutes >I hit send again makes the massage duplicate and still stuck, I hit cancel, back to inbox and when go back to reply it finally send the message...

I am also having this same problem.

This only happens on the mobile version of Yahoo's mail pages, when replying to emails that have text in them.

If you request the desktop version of the mail pages, this typing problem doesn't happen.

Look Everyone Wooooow The problems with Firefox and Yahoo are not good at all. Now when I go to yahoo mail it says your browser is outdated and to download the same version again.
