Does Yahoo! Mail not work on a Mac?

Hi everyone,

I'm wondering if any of you lot have had trouble using Yahoo Mail via a web browser on a Mac? I just bought a new iMac and, using both Firefox and Safari, Yahoo Mail doesn't load up and I get errors.

Aside from the 'use Gmail/get your mail through the Mail app' type of suggestions, is this a known problem or is there something hugely wrong that I'm doing?

Every other site is working perfectly so I'm sure there must be something up. Flickr is also being weird, and I know that's owned by Yahoo.

So even with the 'new version' of Yahoo Mail, rather than the 'classic'?

I am genuinely baffled. It just won't load, and this is the latest Firefox with a brand new Mac.

no issues for me whatsoever, but I'm on a G4. I have not seen or heard of similar complaints from several people I know that have newer mac pros/iMacs/MB's etc, nor on the net in general...

How weird. I guess it must be their sites and not my computer seeing every other site worked fine.

Very frustrating though!!

i am using the classic mail, as when i login it gives me where th inbox should be a blank spot. I hit refresh on my browser then it shows the inbox... I thouhgt this was just me so i never posted a problem... maybe we need to contact yahoo about this.

Been on mac since 2000 using both Safari and Firefox..... no problem.
Sometimes safari crashes but thats probably 'cos I'm running 10.3.9 and can only use older versions of safari..... Try getting rid of both browsers and then re-download...might help

I have been accessing my Yahoo! email account from my MacBook Pro since I got it back in June 2006. I started using FireFox 2.x, and when 3.x initially came out, it was not supported by the new Yahoo! mail beta, only Yahoo! mail classic, so I had to downgrade FF back to 2.x. I just upgraded to FireFox 3.0.4 last week, and now I have no issues at all with Yahoo! mail beta on my MBP.

I have actually never used Safari.

I've run Yahoo mail via Safari, Firefox, and Opera and never had an issue in 3 years of use. With Leopard, I use OSx Mail to access Yahoo and it works fine.
