When I use my laptop to log into my Yahoo mail, I get a Yahoo screen telling me there was a problem loading the new Yahoo Mail and gives me a list of options, including view mail in Classic. That seems to be the only way I can read my e-mail on my laptop. One option is to enable ActiveX, which already is. Another is clearing the cache, which is. Somewhere I have seen something about downloading IE 8, but that is not available for XP. At least, I don't remember seeing it on the list. I don't know what else to do. If you recall, my laptop crashed and I had to re-load Windows XP. I don't know if that would have set the whole thing back or not. Has anyone else had problems like this with Yahoo mail?

I have seen that same screen on occasion, usually when my computer has been running for a long time, and normally giving it a few more tries, restarting the browser or, worst case, restarting the computer works. I have Vista (unfortunately) and have seen that screen in both IE 7 and Google Chrome (although I believe I might have seen it once or twice in my cousin's Mac). Wish I could help you more...
Read this very carefully, I shall write this only once!

This topic has been discussed at some length in Yahoo! forums. One work-around is to open your inbox in a separate tab. In Firefox you can do this by using the scroll wheel on your mouse to make links open in a new tab. I'm not sure how to do it in IE, but if you can set things up so that you can open your inbox in a new tab that almost always solves the problem.

The same in Safari as well. In IE, if you click with the scroll wheel on a link and you have tabs disabled, it will still open a new window. No idea how this works with tabs though, because I have those disabled.
