    Suddenly, Yahoo and Yahoo mail are out of whack. Everything is in a list on the left side, no pictures, all in a plain font like this:

    Search:
    Web Search



    Open Search Assist




























    When I go to yahoo/mail I get this message:
    Automatic page updates causing problems with your screen reader?

    If you are using a screen reader and having problems using Mail, it might help to disable automatic page updates. Please note, this will also disable chat and text messaging within Yahoo! Mail. You can toggle automatic updates on and off using the link below


    • And the page looks somewhat like this:
    Inbox

    Clicking the link does nothing. I can get to my email but the font is huge and everything is in a list.

    It is only happening in Yahoo and does not matter what browser I use. My son can get into my email just fine on his laptop. I've spent all day on it and have made it worse if anything. Thanks for helping!

    I finally figured out that BeSecure filter was blocking yimg.com which is yahoo images.

    I have an internet filter on my computer called BeSecure. Somehow, that filter was blocking yahoo images - it was listed as yimg.com. When I removed that yimg.com from the list of blocked websites yahoo worked fine again. So, if you have an internet filter, check to see if it is blocking yimg.com or something like that. Hope that helps.
