Yahoo mail keeps cycling through login and will not open.

Posted

I was trying to get a picture of a plane off of the yahoo emails I was sending out. I must have done something to the security settings. I can open my yahoo, but when I click on a piece of mail I can't get into it. The http:// site cycles endlessly and won't stop. I don't know what to do.
