My browser is FireFox, so if that's the difference, I'd suggest you try it.

Maybe it does matter. The browser versions are different on the three platforms.

I use the latest Firefox versions on whatever OS I'm using: Ubuntu / Mac / Windows. And it's only on Ubuntu that Yahoo Mail gives that message that "your OS has not been fully tested for compatibility .... yada... yada ... ". ... or something to that effect.

Then I'm given a choice whether to try the new version or stick to Yahoo Classic. I've used the new version as well as the old classic. I'm not being forced to use the new version. Yet.

The weird part is that on Ubuntu forums, there ae several posts about how slow Firefox is on Ubuntu. I'm not experiencing that.

I'm not experiencing any loss of speed, myself, though they claimed the new one would be faster. And they do have more features.

Right, but those are two different browsers. Firefox for Windows is not the same as Firefox for Ubuntu.

How do I switch back to Yahoo Classic?
Would the amount of emails on a yahoo account slow/halt opening, sending, etc?
Have you run CCleaner? Malwarebytes?

I use Yahoo Mail in IE on a 3 yr old computer and haven't noticed any speed difference, though I don't care for the new interface. But I love the Yahoo mail app on my Droid, I think it's the best out there.

Yes

If you lower your screen resolution to below what they want,YOU WILL BE GIVEN THE OPPURTUNETLY TO GO BACK TO THE BETTER VERSION

After that just put your resolution back to what you have it at


The new interface is spying garbage! (They read your email as gmail does)

If by "read your email" you mean allow their spiders to crawl it and give you user-specific ads, then yeah, practically everyone does.

I tried changing my screen resolution and that didn't get it to work. Has anyone figured out how to do this because it is really bugging me?!?

Hmmmmmm if you change your resolution it should give you a message telling you about your resolution and it allows you to go back to the better interface.. (Or used to)

Click some links on the page after changing it and see what happens
