Hi all.....

Got a message about javascript whilst opening yahoo - managed to click 'switch to old version' not being bothered to do anything at the time (!) and yahoo is now in such an old version its almost in stone!

Been into internet options and made sure that scripting section is all 'enabled'as was instructed to do from yahoo and it's made no difference.

I hate the old yahoo - does anyone out there know how to get back to the nice new yahoo??

Thank you!!!!

Hiya MR0624

Not sure how to explain it.. not very computer literate :tazz:

Yahoo mail page is accessible but lost all my preferences; its almost like when you're in the 'plain' text version, without colours or images, but I haven't got the option to change it in the 'options' section.

I have made sure the scripting section of internet options are all enabled but it makes no difference.

I suppose its cosmetic as I can access my messages.

Thank you!

Ok, I currently have the same thing happening in my yahoo too. I'll do some research and see if there's anything listed in yahoo help.

Not real familiar with Yahoo, but do they have an update page? Can you remove yahoo from the add/remove section and reinstall it?

yahoo isn't a program so it can't be uninstalled. I've looked for buttons that might change the mode or something but no such luck...I'll keep on researching....

I had this same problem. I use Norton Internet Security, and what I did to fix the problem was log off Yahoo mail, then momentarily turn off Norton, then log back on to Yahoo mail. Yahoo mail then apparently auto-detected that javascript was enabled because I then had the new version of Yahoo mail back. I then made sure to turn Norton right back on (I was paranoid that i'd get nailed during the momentary lapse!)

I presume Norton was blocking some attempt by Yahoo mail to check whether the browser had javascript enabled, so kept defaulting back to the old mail version when its attempts were blocked by Norton.

Hope this works for you.
