    I wanted to know if anyone else is experiencing this same problem with Yahoo Mail and if anyone knows a fix?

    I'm using the latest Firefox and have still had issues when clearing cookies and using a previous version of Firefox. Another thread related the problem to IE9 but that's not the case.

    There is no problem with my connection to the internet. I've received this error before and sometimes it lasts a day, sometimes 2 or 3 days. Then it'll be fine for a month or so and suddenly the same problem again. It seems random but is very frustrating as it won't allow me to read any email. If I do manage to get into an email it doesn't recognize that I've viewed the email afterwards.


    Anyway hope someone can help?

    My guess is that it is a Yahoo! problem and there is nothing you can do about it. However, in case it is something (still thinking a Yahoo! issue) related to browser or add-on try another browser or two--IE, Chrome, etc.

    I click 'stay signed in' then navigate to another page and when I go back to yahoo email which normally will bring me back to my inbox I see this:

    note that at the top right it says I am signed in already

    It is getting really old

    sturoc1, that seems to be completely different from stevenson's problem?

    Was kinda not so much hijacking, but more tailgating since both stevenson and mine are somewhat related in that it seems to be a Yahoo problem.
    I try not to dup. post and or clog up forum topics etc. with new threads.
