I have a Yahoo email account that over the last week I can access and even open some emails but it freezes or acts incredibly slow with I try to compose or respond--"Loading..." message at the top of screen but nothing happens--so that I just give up.
Once I received the Error 999 message, but only once. I did contact my ISP (WOW), as Yahoo suggested, and they tell me they have no connectivity problems or problems with Yahoo.
I've tried both Firefox and Google Chrome and the same problem on both. I have a Dell laptop and use Windows Vista.
I created a Gmail account and everything works fine EXCEPT I cannot type in the message box -- I can in the address window, however. I also logged onto my husbands Hotmail account and all is okay there EXCEPT that several cursors appear in different places on the screen at once (Internet address window, email address window, and message box); I can type in the message box on Hotmail, however.
Anyone have ANY idea why these strange things are occurring? Is it the sites or my computer? All other web sites work fine. Keep in mind when you answer that I am a complete novice.
