Yahoo new home pages and how to get back to the old home page

Yahoo is testing new home pages for quite some time, these new home pages are not enabled for all Yahoo user, but only a small percentage of users will see these designs. There are two variations of the new Yahoo designs, one that is released in Sep 2008 and the other that is released in May 2009.

Update: Now there is a link at the bottom of the page that reads “back to yahoo classic”, thats it. Thanks for the tip Britaney.

Both the new designs offer clean interface and some customization to add apps, social activities etc. But some users really hate these new home pages.

How to get back your old Yahoo home page

Delete the cookies, delete cache, files and restart your browser. That’s all you need to do to get back your old Yahoo home page. If you are using IE go to Internet Options and delete browsing history that will erase, history, cookies, temporary internet files etc. If you are using Firefox go to Tools > Options > Privacy tab, click settings in Private Data and set what ever you want to remove and save, then clear private data. If this doesn’t help check here for instructions to use another method.

For the curious these are the new home pages that are being tested. The first screenshot is the latest and the second is the previous.

        I hate the new yahoo and I try to keep up with everything new!!
        So much for a good thing! I can’t even figure out how to change
        it back. I’m really ready to just go elsewhere…..
        someone (not me…already too busy as it is) should start
        an email to see just how many of us are fed up!

        • says

          I do NOT like this new homepage for Yahoo. I can’t figure out how to forward a message, and had a hard time trying to find my e-mail list. This new page doesn’t even show the address of my contacts. I want the OLD home page back. Isn’t there a simple way to get it back?
          I did a couple months ago, but have had to reformat my computer. Now there are all different places to visit, and all kinds of junk to go through. I’M TEED OFF!!!

          • Elaine Akers says

            I agree, I want my old yahoo back, I can’t get my personal portfolio now. It is to confusing now.

    • says

      Is that what that is? I was typing an email and all of a sudde my screen went white!!! If that is’nt a pain in the rear, I dont know what is!!! And the old yahoo home page is gone for good from what I read. Is Google better than yahoo??? Clue me in on it,ok? thanx!

    • Dan Lucas says

      I feel I was forced into the new e-mail because I could not use the old e-mail they would block the old e-mail. I do not know how to send mail with this new system

    • karen boll says

  1. Stacy says

  3. Chris says

    You can’t move your mouse anywhere with a huge box popping up and covering what you’re trying to see – it’s frustrating!

  4. barbara says

  5. Lois Halibuton says

    I want my old Yahoo page back! I don’t like the new one, it is useless to me, may as well go on over to Google if this is what I have to deal with in Yahoo now.

  6. jt says

    You changed my old webpage and I liked it! this is the 2nd time it’s been changed on me. Please stop changing it.

  7. ra says

    I cannot get back the old yahoo page. I cleaned cookies. If it wont work I will chose MSN as a home page. I suggest for Yahoo to get on the ball

  8. cathi wormuth says

    why can’t you guys leave well enough alone. elderly people as well are trying to get into the ways of computers and get use to where things are . Then you guys go and change stuff around. how would you like it if I got in your home and . don’t we have a say… we pay for it. new setup sucks

    • Becky says

      I agree with comment from the person who said US elderly people use Yahoo more that any other website. I want my old yahoo page back!!!

  9. barbara says

    please give me back my old yahoo home page, i don’t like the new one….
    it didn’t say change home page, just look…
    why don’t you make it easier instead of harder…

  10. Connie C says

    To get your old yahoo homepage, you may want to enter in your web browser:

    Then once at the old homepage, set it up in Internet Explorer, as your homepage.

    Worked for my boyfriend.

  11. says

    i want the old yahoo back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Gail says

      I tried deleting cookies and caches and typing in the old homepage address but it didn’t work. There used to be a note at the bottom of the page where you could click back to old Yahoo homepage, but it’s gone now. Any ideas? I really hate the new one.

  13. James Rosson says

    Dear Yahoo,
    I find this new redesigned Yahoo very difficult and it makes me want to change my homepage to Google.(Yuk!) But I want the old homepage back. I have tried to update my profile and NONE of the encrypted passwords are working. Are they case sensitive? I have tried them both ways and over and over again I am unsuccessful. I have had you for an email server and homepage for over 25 years and it would be a shame to change because the page has become so user UN-friendly. I have studied the new site and I can find many cons and few pros.
    Is there no way to get my old homepage back? You even have my age WRONG.
    Thanks,
    Bearrosson

  14. Dennis Espinosa says

    I REALLY HATE ALL THIS NEW YAHOO YOU CANT EVEN CHECK YOUR MAIL ITS TO DIFFACULT AND I CANT EVEN WRITE EMAIL LETTERS

  15. anthony says

    i like the old version best, but at the same time there was a few things i did like about the new version too. i’m not going to tell you what they are at this time.sorry

    • Internet Madman says

      You like it but won’t tell anyone what you like? You claim you are too busy… Why bother to comment.

      Gimme a break!

  16. anthony says

    i was kidding, NOW CHANGE IT BACK TO THE OLD VERSION OR I’M CANCELING YAHOO!!! NOW I’M GETTING PISSED OFF……

  17. Samantha says

    just erase all the history you had since you got the new homepage . that should do it.

    • jada says

  19. Mikey says

    I agree the new home page sucks. But it is easy to change back as the other poster states. go to the new home page and at the bottom on right click on return to old home page.

  20. Tuckere says

  24. susan r jalandoni says

    I WANT THE OLD YAHOO HOME PAGE BACK.

    I DON”T LIKE THE NEW YAHOO HOME PAGE

  25. Dee says

    I want the former Yahoo homepage back – NOW!!!
    This new page is cluttered and incovenient.
    I agree: let well enough alone!
    And find something better to do for the new Yahoo homepage designer!…rather than us wasting our time (unsucessfully) trying to revert.

  26. tadrok says

    Well……what’s done is done, the old way of clearing out history, cookies, cache, etc. DOES NOT get your old page back and, using as your home page only gives you the old page layout UNTIL you sign into your mail account, at which time you are right back to the FORCE FED newly designed page!!!! Soooooo, goodbye Yahoo and hello Google G-Mail!!!!!

  27. mayra says

    i hate the new yahoo page!!!!!!!when something is good, why change it…its stupid.

  28. C.Robison says

    About the time I got used to my new email address, everything was gonig well, but this travesty (to me) is another irritation that I am almost not willing to put u with…I will give it another week perhaps two, but I WANT MY FAMILIAR OLD YAHOO HOME PAGE BACK…Thanks.

  29. Regina says

    I really hate the new yahoo i feel like dont even know how to work it anymore and i like the old look it was way more simple and easier to understand

  30. Frustrated says

    You know, it’s not cool to just switch to a new homepage you guys are trying out on us. You should just put a link at the top of the page asking if we’d like to TRY OUT the new HP.

    I’m a big fan of Yahoo!, but this little jackass trick was an unnecessary frustration. And the link to switch back to the old page is tiny and burried at the bottom. Poor choice people!

  31. krissy says

    ok guys just press search dont type anything in the box and you will see options just click that and go down to the bottom and press reset and it will bring back the old pagee yayay!!!!! figure it out in a genius

  32. VJ says

    FEW WAYS TO RESTORE GOOD OLD YAHOO HOME-PAGE

    Method 1. Click on the link “Return to Classic Yahoo.com” at the bottom right corner of the new Yahoo homepage.

    Method 2. Set as your homepage (in Tools -> Internet Options). This way, you may not have to do anything else, until yahoo gets rid of the Classic.

    Method 3. Clear the Cookies (or Browsing History) in your internet browser program. (Technically, you only need to remove any cookies from yahoo.com, if you know how to do that). Remember that deleting Cookies will require you to re-login to websites that previously “remembered” your username & password. Advanced users may just block cookies from m.www.yahoo.com

  33. tom coyne says

    please get me back to my old home page, YAHOO SUCKS ,i’m tired of signing in and being redirected, I want my horicope and lottery numbers back again YAHOO SUCKS

  34. Sharon B says

    Spent two hours trying to get back to original Yahoo Page and have clicked on the Back to Classic Yahoo and does not work,

  35. Ted G. says

    Man please put my “OLD YAHOO PAGE BACK” .Don’t like new one and it should made more easy for us to go back to old page.OLD

  36. R Smith says

    Hi All,

    I used the tip supplied by VJ and it works great. Yahoo won’t help as I have written to their homepage support twice today. Whay a bunch of jerks.
    Why do they decide for us that the new homepage is bette than the classic.
    Make this your home page works today

  37. Charles I. Foss says

    Please change me back to the old homepage. I dislike the new one.
    If I can’t get the old one back, I’ll be forced to change the site away from Yahoo, which I have liked for many years.

  38. Kathy says

    This new yahoo is not good. I have things saved in files I created. Such as purchase confirmations and shipping dates. I keep track of these till my orders arrive. I hate to lose track of these. Also other things are saved in there that I need.

  39. Greg says

    The new yahoo home page sucks. I think I will have to go to my second choice (google) and see what I can make out of it !!!!!!!

  40. ETHEL COTTON says

    ALL I DID WAS TO LOOK AT THE NEW HOME PAGE FOR YAHOO. IT NEVER ASK IF I AGREES TO GET IT. I WANT MY OLD HOME PAGE BACK. EVEON IF I HAVE TO CALL THE INTERNET POEPLE TO GET IT. grannyc45@att.net

  41. says

    My Yahoo homepage was Hijacked!! I do not like it and thanks so much for this link!! It really works.. Now I have my “classic” Yahoo page as my homepage… I do not like the new page…

  42. c.a.wiley says

    HEY!! WHAT IS WITH YOU, YAHOO? I JUST POSTED MY OPINION, WAS ABLE TO READ IT ONCE, AND THEN POOF! IT’S GONE. I’m not the only one who resents having the new design shoved down my throat. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE COMMENT I JUST POSTED? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO, SEND THE YAHOO HIT SQUAD TO MY HOUSE? GIVE ME BACK MY ORIGINAL HOME PAGE AND DON’T ERASE MY COMMENTS.

  43. says

    @c.a.wiley
    First time commentators comments go for moderation, from next time they will appear immediately. Your first comments is here.

  44. journey says

  45. John C. Burritt says

    Please give us the option of staying with the old My Yahoo page format. I can’t get to my unique areas of interest.

  46. anne broughton says

    why did you change my homepage? i hate this new one. i was used too the other one. now it is hard too get my mail. i hate hate hate it.

  47. Brenda says

    Put my old yahoo site back!!!!!!!!!! You should let us choose if we want this new site. Not just pop it on the screen and screw me up. I hate it. I’d like a reply ASAP.

  48. townie says

    you can have your old page back if you scroll on the bottom right corner somewhere on the link

  49. rea says

    I want my old yahoo mail back. I do not like this new one at all. I cannot see in my contact area if any of my friends are online without having to log into messenger. Also, I don’t like how this big page pops up while moving mouse over something. Bring back the old………I’ve tried finding the way to switch it back and cannot find anything. So change it back for me.

  50. albert says

    I TOTALLY HATE THE NEW YAHOO PAGE. I WANT MY OLD ONE BACK. IF I DONT GET THE OLD ONE BACK, I WILL SWITCH TO GOOGLES HOMEPAGE.

  51. David Rock says

    I will start AOL or google if I can not have my old email page back. The whole reason I used yahoo was that it was easy to use.

  52. joe says

    Just go to the bottom of the new yahoo home page, on the right side click on return to yahoo classic. its that ease.

  53. kevin says

    Please allow two versions of Yahoo homepage, the better, former homepage, and the latter inferior homepage. Thanx

  54. joyce ferris says

    Please !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The new home page is the shits. Please get it
    back now. Leave well enought alone. Got it
    Thanks

  55. Katie says

    I HATE the new yahoo home page. I also HATE having to delete my entire internet history just so I can get it back. I don’t see on the bottom of yahoo where you can change back. It used to be there but is not anymore!

  56. john peterson says

    I am an old man, and wasting all this time trying to get all my old yahoo page back is really making me mad. Get it fixed. I have replaced this new version three times in 24 hours and it still comes up “new page” during restart. Cannot enter my e-mail as i cannot satisfy this security codes that it is me, the only one who lives here for 22 years, that I live alone.
    Going to have to use someone else I guess, as yo don,t respond.

  57. betty jurczyk says

    i hate the new page…and don’t know how to get my old page back…you don’t make it easy at all…you took it off why can’t you put my old page back??why don’t you ask first if we want a change!!!! now if at all possible could you PLEASE put it back!!!!

  58. sam smemo says

    Just give back what the people want.Give back the old original Yahoo Home Page. While you are at it give back the original page that had all of our contacts grouped together on a single page.

  59. scnd2nun says

    Sometimes “OLD” is better…In this case “OLD” is always better. Why fix something that isn’t broken. I really hate it when these corporate giants start to infringe on something that you are accustomed to using and force you to use what they want you to use. What they should do is everytime a user “LOGS IN” they should be able to have the option to view classic or new. Please give people these options. Its the classsic and the users that made you sho you are. So give people what they want.

  60. Anne says

    hello yahoo people, PLEASE IMPROVE if you’re creating a new homepage. this new homepage is so not cool. old one’s still A LOT better.

  61. hemppy says

  69. Lorraine T Lebel says

  70. Helga Woerner says

    please give me back my old webside . I do not like the new Yahoo. and I don’t know how to get the old one back.

  71. Jimmy says

    The new Yahoo homepage sucks. I will be going to Google if the old page isn’t returned soon. I hate the stupid pop-ups that cover the whole screen. I’m sure it really sucks for the folks on dial-up.
    It’s going to cost them a lot of revenue and lost users!! Very disgusted with Yahoo and have been every since they started this crap!!

  72. terri-angry says

    please give me my old classic yahoo homepage! this new one is hard to nacigate and i will not use. other ones are avaible.

    PLEASE GET ME BACK TO THE CLASSIC OLD YAHOO PAGE !!! I TOTALLY DISLIKE THIS NEW ONE AND
    AM READY TO GET A NEW HOME PAGE……..HELP !!!
    CATHERINE ENTENMAN

  75. Vicki Sorensen says

    I have been a loyal Yahoo customer for a long time. I can’t believe how much time I’ve wasted trying to get around the forced re-route to your terrible new home page. I tried the new one for several days (thinking maybe I could get used to it) and I absolutely despise it.

    Nothing is easy to get at, I can’t see a mail preview (in condensed mode), I hate seeing “Popular Searches” right up front (who cares?), re-sorting of Favorites doesn’t work, you can’t move widgets, etc., etc., etc.

    Why would you do this to your customers? A user’s homepage is a CRITICAL function of their everyday web usage.

    I hope you decide to change it back. The user friendly-ness of your old home page is the #1 reason I have not been a Google customer.

    That will most certainly change…

  76. graham gallard says

    the old home page is far easier to use, and the stuff you want to see is there already, dont have to go looking for it, looks like we will have to go to google!

  77. Felicia Hamilton says

    I hate the new yahoo home page.I hate yahoo now! Each time I log on I hate it more and more!

  78. Pete says

    You took my old page away, now you give me all these difficult things to do. I can not get that done. PLEASE just give it back. You took it away without my request, just put it back.
    Pete

  79. Brenda Denton says

    I hate the new home page of my e-mail . Please just put it back. If it’s not broken please don’t try to ‘fix’ it

  80. Magelene Kilton says

    I hate the new yahoo homepage. I want the old one back. I hate it more and more. Every morning when I got up the first thing I would do was check my local weather where I live,not on t.v. or radio but right there on my old homepage yahoo. Please give back to usssssssss.

  81. Travis says

    How would you like if someone came into your home and rearranged everything in your desk,garage,medicine cabinet,refrigerator or what ever?

  82. Lois Berglin says

    I want my original (OLD) Yahoo page back NOW-TODAY
    Quit messing with my computor. I am very capable of making changes IF I want them…

  83. Lois Berglin says

    I see that others have been requesting this since the first of August, So why is nothing being done?

  84. CHRISTIN WILSON says

    I HATE THIS NEW HOME PAGE I CANNOT EVER GET TO MY E-MAILS AND IT TAKES SO LONG FOR ME TO EVEN GET ON LINE TO WHERE I AM GOING. I WANT BACK WHAT I HAD BEFORE YOU MESSED IT UP.

  85. Ed says

    I want my old Yahoo back or i will be forced to change,It would be ok but I do not like the side bar of favorits,You should be able to minimize.My screen is getting smaller and smaller.
    Pleasee help

  86. Ed says

    Someone made the comment said that i said this before ,this was the first time .And i wuold like to stay with Yahoo,Just asking for help

  87. Diane Horton says

    Quit changing my web page to the new one, I don’t like it. CHANGE IT BACK NOW AND LEAVE IT ALONE. I lost things on this new one. Change NOW!!!

  88. Anne says

    I HATE this new yahoo!
    I use yahoo has my home page but I want to SIGN in every time, not have it automatically open my mailbox to anyone who happens to use my computer! I also don’t trust it because it opens my yahoo page first and I am afraid to go to any secure sites like bank or insurance sites anymore because I feel that I can be hacked if someone follows me off my e-mail page and everyone knows that e-mail isn’t secure at all and never has been. I don’t want to have to sign out every time I leave my e-mail page. I want the old way back where it automatically signs me out and I have to sign back in to whatever mail page I want when I go on line.

  89. Terry says

    I would like to get back to my old yahoo home page.I have a older computer & the new one is very small. I don’t like it.

  90. Diane Horton says

    I want my old page back. I don’t like it that they can change my page without my permission. I got it back once before,but now they have changed it so that I can’t get back on. If they don’t change back I am going back to Comcast.net. I think we should have the right to have what we want on our home page,NOT what they want.If anyone knows how to get back to the old page PLEASE e-mail me. Thanks Diane

  91. mar says

    can you ps tell me how to get back to the old yahoo page. It is tru that sometimes we need changes but it is for good not for worst. So ps change it.

  92. T says

    Stop changing my Home Page! No one likes the new one. Take a hint form all of the responses and get rid of the new page. Oh yeah. Stop changing my home page.

  93. ophelia says

    EVERYTIME I switch back to yahoo classic in the morning onces again Ihave been switched back to yahoo bete, y is being allowed to happen

  94. shirl brewer@yahoo.com says

    I WANT MY OLD YAHOO HOME PAGE BACK AND MY OLD EMAIL PAGE BACK. THANK YOU SHIRL BREWER i like the old home page and the old email be better.

  95. Vicki Sorensen says

    Someone seems to be listening.

    I just noticed that you can make the home page “Return to Classic Yahoo.com”. Not sure if it “sticks” as I haven’t tested it long enough. Hopefully it sets a cookie.

    At the bottom of the NEW (hateful) Home Page, on the lower right, under “About Yahoo!” is a link: “Return to Classic Yahoo.com”.

    Should do it. YEA! THANK YOU YAHOO!

  96. michael carter says

    i like the old yahoo fine just the way it was. i don’t like anything about the new yahoo. i want to go back to the old yahoo. use somebody else for the testing.

  97. Courtney says

    I definitely agree with Vicki. cuz i hate the new yahoo as well and i just now figured it out today.

  98. Karen says

    I am very sorry,but i really hate the new yahoo mail page.Please go back to my old homepage asap

  99. Becky Butler says

    THERE IS NO LINK TO CHANGE BACK TO CLASSIC HOME PAGE FOR YAHOO. PLEASE PUT IT BACK SO I CAN GO BACK TO CLASSIC AS THE NEW ONE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  100. ronald l lamb says

    If yuou do not change back, will have to get a grandkid to come over, and find a new site, as this money driven site STINKS

  101. Carol Timmer says

    Please give me my old home pages back. Don’t tell me about having to do all kinds of things,like something about ‘cookies’.. I don’t even know what that is. You have tried this before and people keep telling you to leave things alone. How many times do you need to hear it before you do it again? The majority rules but you don’t get it. maybe you need to get out of the business if you can’t please the majority.

  102. Serafin Avitia says

    this new yahoo sucks cant find anything in it
    I could log and find my wife in no time have
    been this stupid new one and it sucks just like the idiots that disgned it
    get me infomration as to how to get back in the old yahoo. have spent all day looking for my wife in this gto no avail,
    get it out it sucks

  103. sandy says

    Hate the new Yahoo page. How do we get the old one back. The new one is much harder to read and not as nice as the old one….

  104. Evelyn says

    I also hate the new website, why do so many people have to complain and still not get it changed back. This is a disgrace to not be able to get the old yahoo website page back. I alwas thought Yahoo was a better business than it is showing it’s customers, apparently you don’t care anymore, this makes yahoo look bad, I also agree if something isn’t done soon I will also choose another website. DO SOMETHING NOW!

  105. jeff says

    The new yahoo home page ingest copious amounts of phallus.

    The old one can be brought back though. When the new yahoo aka http://www.m.yahoo.com appears as your new home page, just scroll down to the bottom right hand corner under “about yahoo” and there is a link to return to “yahoo classic”

    However, with cash being the driving force of this new home page, I am betting this option disappears soon, and I when it does, so will I.

  106. carl riley says

    Hey, The Test Rabbits you are using for the new
    home page you are trying to force upon us are your
    customers! Your customers are very unhappy to the

    on being stupid we will all change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    set your computer to go directly to your yahoo mail or your home page and bypass yahoos new home page.set your computer to msn or google as a front page.with a mail address on your desktop you dont have to use yahoo’s crappy new front page. this works with apple also . i have a g4 book/and an dell 1501 and a compaq desk top .if you dont like there new page let them know by bypassing it because you really dont need it for your mail and the other companys home pages are good .

  108. ROY says

    TYPE IN http;www.yahoo.com/classic this should get you back on the older better front page. it worked for me andthere crappy new front page was on three of my computers .also block the

  113. Marilyn says

    Deleted cookies, history and still not able to keep the old yahoo version. Why can’t we have a choice without all this hassle?

    • says

      How long before the new yahoo home page takes effect? I’m tired of not having a straight answer, so how long before we lose the old yahoo classic email home page? Please answer instead of avoiding our questions.

  114. karen says

    hi again you read their comments as most of them want old yahoo homepages back for me i didnt copy them but i saw compare but iam still dont like new yahoo did confuse me yes maybe other want to stay new yahoo and some of us keep old yahoo. please let us choose what we want okay thanks karen and tom .

  115. catherine errico says

    i hate what you are doing with this page site why don’t you leave it alone. GIVE ME BACK MY OLD YAHOO WEBSITE PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

  116. scott alley says

    The new yahoo! home page looks childish and poorly organized.

    I don’t like the way that giant purple box covers up what I’m reading until I ‘x’ it to make it go away. If this new page is forced on us on Nov. 11 as threatened, we’ll probably move to google or somewhere else. Too bad because we really liked the incumbent page and have been with yahoo! for many years.

  117. tim says

    this new yahoo homepage and mail absolutely and without a doubt SUCKS. always somebody coming round and tryin to complicate things, make changes that r rarely needed. just to make an impression on the higher ups at their place uf employment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  118. bt says

    IF I AM FORCED TO USE THIS NEW YAHOO HOMEPAGE, I WILL ALSO REALIZE THAT I AM BEING FORCED TO GO TO ANOTHER PROVIDER

    • Anthony says

      Who-ever came up with this new yahoo yahoo page ought to have his or her ass kicked.This yahoo page sucks as its inventer.Change it back or give us the option to use either or.

  119. Annoyed says

    I hate the constant changes on the yahoo homepage. I am going to end up having to change it to another homepage because it is so annoying! When I sign in, I don’t even know how to get to my email anymore. I can’t even see how it is any better when all it does is annoy users. I want to be able to change back to my old homepage….I do NOT have a link at the bottom or anywhere else on the page for that matter to switch back. They had that before and now it’s no longer available.

  120. Bob McCutchan says

    I want my old Yahoo Homepage back. the new one sucks big time. How can i get back to the good old home page?

  121. joe sheppard says

  123. Patti Taggart says

    Get me back to the good old home page. I hate this new one. How do I go back to the old one?????????????????????????

  124. mike says

    What are they thinking, the new yahoo is so bad and unuseabal I don’t want to even use it any more what will it take to get the yo yos @ yahoo to see that we don’t like it !

  125. succy says

    You take away the link to revert to the old page..gg

    I didn’t know Sony Online Entertainment acquired Yahoo! too.

  126. Joshua says

    gee yahoo you could have atleast left the choice for those of us that dont like the new page. Arent we supposed to be living in a FREE WORLD!!!! your new page forced on us is an act of socialism, which makes you no better than a nazi ragime. no wonder you keep falling so hard in the market and are being pushed out by others we would never have formaly considered as a viable option. you have single handedly pushed away the very small amount of people that stuck by you thru all your other messenger issues, maybe you should just retire the entire yahoo corp. freakin nazi B@#%*&ds

  127. blake says

    on the new front page / switch to the narrow layout /its almost the same as the old page and those big ugly popups arent there /you may like it/good luck this is what i did.

  128. YahooLosers says

    The new yahoo page is the most annoying work of clutter I’ve ever seen. There are 5000 things going on, on what should be a simple, user friendly home page. Everytime you scroll along one of those lame categories on the lft, a massive spam-like popup window gobbles up 3/4 of your screen. How annoying. I can see why this turd company is losing market share to Google. They’ve lost me and millions of others who will now be forced to switch to Google.

  129. Joyce Crockett says

    I want my old yahoo.com back. I don’t like change. I had a lot of stuff on it and I want them back. Make it soon please. Thanks, Joyce

  130. rackemplez says

    i like the old yahoo home page better .. you cant check maps on the new one so pleaze return the 1 back …

  131. Ileen says

    Do you not know by now with all the comments that the new yahoo really sucks…and I am to busy to be bothered with all the changes..for one we did not ask for a change. Please let me go back to the old one. I would think with all the competion one would not take in consideration that folks want to keep what works better for them and simple is best.

    Ileen

    Been with yahoo.com since 1995 now I have to think I want to go elsewhere?

  132. says

    THINGS CHANGE FOR GOOD RIGHT?
    BUT THIS TIME YOU GUYS &^%#### IT UP!!!
    I DONT EVEN WANNA USE THIS NEW YAHOO NO MORE…
    WE
    WANT
    THE
    OLD
    VERSION BACK!

  133. MICHAEL MCNEAL says

    WINDOWS XP ,WAS MY WEB SSITE,INTERNET IS WHERE I LOOK THINGS UP,PUT BACK THE WAY IT WAS BEFORE YOU UPDATED ME

  134. Brody says

    If you have a ‘favorites’ toolbar you can use it to link directly to yahoo news, mail, sports, or whatever without having to visit the homepage at all. It has worked well for me. I also have google on there for when I need a search engine so I never have to be bothered cuz I really hate those rollover pop up ads too.

  135. Jennifer says

    I don’t like this new yahoo I want my old one back! How do I get it? Please won’t someone help me?

  136. nekcole says

    HEY!U PEOPLE THAT WANT YOUR OLD YAHOO BACK PROBALY NOT GETTING IT BACK FOR AWILE! I WANT MY OLD YAHOO BACK 2 BUT THE YAHOO JERKS PROBALY DONOT CARE THAT WE WANT THE OLD YAHOO BACK.THEY PROBALY DONT EVEN READ IT!

  137. atlantis says

    I AM SOOOO FREAKING FED UP WITH THE YAHOO HOME PAGE I CAN’T STAND IT!!!! JUST BECAUSE I SCROLL OVER SOMETHING DOESN’T MEAN I WANT IT TO POP UP IN MY FACE!!! ONE OF THE MANY REASONS I HATE BING!!! YOU PEOPLE CAN’T LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE. IF IT’S NOT BROKE, DON’T FIX IT!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU THINK SOME OF US WILL GET USE TO IT!!! THE ONLY THING IT’S DONE IS MAKE ME MADDER EVERYTIME I ATTEMPT TO USE THE HOME SCREEN! I DIDN’T THINK YAHOO WERE IDIOTS BUT I’M BEGINNING TO WONDER SINCE YOU GIVE YOUR CUSTOMERS NO OPTIONS AT ALL ANYMORE!!!

  138. says

    I agree that the Classic Mail is much better. I have also had a hard time downloading the new program for the attachments. I have tried attaching my resume since Thursday and keep getting an error msg.

  139. PHm says

    you know what yahoo ur innovations are okay but you dont get the heads or the tails of it please bring back the old yahoo bcos i dont understand a thing of it and i have been in since DONKEYS YEARS SO PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLD YAHOO HOMEPAGE.

  140. Aru says

    hey can anyone of u guide me as to how to change to the old yahoo page. Even i hv got bored and fed up with it.

  141. John Richard Ivens says

    You haven’t got it have you? Yahoo doesn’t give a damn. It just removes what we have all become used to, then refuses to say how we can get back to Classic.
    At the top of the page it says there is a link at the bottom of this page to get back to Classic. Like hell there is.

  142. Hummingbird says

    If you go to your inbox, at the upper right, click on options, and you can return to the old yahoo inbox.

  143. jean says

    Why did you take away the old web page? I was using it until yesterday, then I got a message saying that if I stayed at the old page it probably wouldn’t work, so I said yes to the new one. WHAT A BIT MISTAKE THAT WAS!!
    It is so hard to figure out – things pop up, things disappear. I have no idea what is going on. I WANT MY OLD PAGE BACK!!

  144. joann says

    JUST GIVE ME THE OLD PAGE BACK .,,,, NOW

  147. sandi says

    I’m with the rest of these entries – i hate the new page – i can’t find anything and can’t reorganize my messages at all. PLEASE allow your faithful users to have a choice and quit listening your page designers. If they didn’t change everything they wouldn’t have a job. Give me back my old system. I’m ready to look for another email site. But you probably don’t care!

  148. says
