I recently bought a new computer with windows 10 and ever since, the left and right arrows are missing on the yahoo news scroll bar. So I can only read the first 5 stories and not 80 (as shown in the picture) . I checked the chrome and microsoft edge browsers but the arrows are missing there as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have been using using the "Email a link to this page" feature for a long time (previously it was Share page feature I believe) and have correctly setup the mailto: in preferences to use Yahoo Mail. Recently in Firefox 62, the feature now only starts up the Compose mail function for Yahoo Mail but the message is blank. Previously it had automatically inserted the Subject with page title and body with page url.

I've tested in both Linux and Windows, with all add-ons disabled and the behavior is the same.

My computer indicate that only Google and McAfee Secure are search options. But when I type an address into the website space, a green plus sign appears in the search bar and then the search engine being used is Yahoo,, not Google. I have used a website to remove the Yahoo search engine, and I cannot find any evidence of Yahoo on the computer (but I'm not very computer literate). Help!!!

I have a problem specific to printing a Yahoo email. I click on "MORE", then Print. Then it opens a new window. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a Print Preview available so I can see how it will print. What often happens is I get a blank last page or one with just a line of unwanted words. So I waste a sheet of paper.

With a Preview, I can see that and, instead, print a selection.

I'm wondering if there is a shortcut key to enable Print Preview? If not, dear Firefox, I wish you would add this function.

I can not log into my Yahoo accounts from Firefox. I have one open; I try to open another, and it consistently tells me my password is incorrect.

This IS NOT a Yahoo problem. I can log in just fine from Edge. I like Firefox much better than Edge, but if this isn't fixed I will permanently switch. I have uninstalled and reloaded Firefox 3 times. Once. the Norton tech did it for me. Then I did it twice. It doesn't seem to correct

Hello, Ive got Quantum 63.01 running on macbook pro. Yahoo barging in as the 'default search engine'. I go to my preference page I delete it, google is back to being my default search engine. A few days later, boom- there is yahoo again showing up as the default. This goes on several times a week, and its driving me nuts. If I didnt like yahoo before, I really hate them now. Ive gone through all of your solutions, there is nothing in my extensions or add-ons that shouldnt be there. So why does this continue to happen? I need to get rid of yahoo now. I even ran yahoo through the finder and there is nothing on my laptop for yahoo. Isnt there a script I can look for in firefox that can be deleted or something?? Any and all help is truly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I use an HP desktop PC AOI Pavilion. Windows 10 and Firefox are up to date. In addition to Yahoo Mail i use Gmail. If i send an email using Gmail all works fine. Thanks for your help.

None............and I do mean NONE of the posted solutions posted permanently resolve the problem. They will temporarily, but inevitably Yahoo rears it's ugly head again. Comically Mozilla has admitted awareness of the problem stating "it was a glitch in version 35, but it has been corrected and updating to version 36 will take care of it". So what are we on now..............version 42 and it's still ongoing. The I.T. department at the corporation I work for finally got so fed up with calls about this that we are no longer permitted to use the Firefox browser on corporate owned PC's. Unless Yahoo has a malicious hacker in their ranks or there is a "cyber browser conspiracy" between Yahoo and Mozilla I find it incredibly difficult to believe they can't resolve this!?!?!?

Hi,

Just when life was tripping along nicely and all Yahoo's videos had been prevented from auto-play, along comes the latest version of FF -- Version 66.0 which appears to have thrown AdBlock & AdBlockPlus into turmoil and released their hold on the videos.

Any knowledge about this, or should I be looking elsewhere for the cause?

Best regards,

Ian

When using Firefox, Yahoo often cuts in, usually with a DNS complaint, and won't let me connect. I don't use Yahoo. I continually strip it from the list of possible browser search choices, but it keeps coming back to the list, and makes itself my browser of choice. I keep correcting this, and it keeps coming back. It is causing me to have to use another browser most of the time, though I would prefer not to. Please tell me what I can do to prevent Yahoo from trying to control my computer!!!

My Firefox is 39.0, and my Mac 10.7.5. I believe Flash Player may be involved (maybe not) and that is version 18.0 r0, which is not allowed to act unless I tell it to.

I assume this problem is being caused by the Firefox browser, due to another browser having no problem...

So how do i fix this please?

I tried reloading Firefox and searching the registry for the Yahoo URL to no avail.

What keeps changing my home page to Yahoo? I searched my PC for SPIGOT to no avail either. Anyone else have this problem? More to the point, anyone know what causes the home page to be reset to Yahoo after it is reset in Options to the original home page? There are similar questions on htis website, but no answers to my specific problem.

Firefox v40.0.3, Win7 64-bit SP1 and up-to-date.

Somehow, probably due to a recent software install, Yahoo has hijacked my new tab behavior and I can no longer get to the New Tab tiles that I could do before when I create a new tab or new window (ctrl-t or ctrl-n). I have:

1. Changed the about:config browser.newtab.url entry to about:newtab; it was www.yahoo.com. 2. Removed Yahoo from the list of search engines and ensured that Google was at the top. 3. Followed the process at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-new-tab-page but I cannot find the cog icon on the New Tab page since I can't get a tab with the tiles (i.e. I can find the New Tab controls referred to on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/hide-or-display-sites-new-tab-page).

I would really like my tiles back.
