It is working for me. Try disabling Ghostery if you have it on in Firefox.

Where is that @LuckyGuy and what is it?

You know they had a security breach at Yahoo Mail.

I just heard that. What do you think that means for us?

I can’t get in either. First it led me to a screen saying it could not connect, now it just spins around like the ouroboros trying to eat itself. In fact I forgot about it until answering this, and it’s still spinning…that’s about ten minutes, here.

Was doing this a couple of days ago, as well.

First time I got to the login page, said it couldn’t log in. Then I tried it again, and it just started spinning, then I got the same notice about not being able to connect. Now it’s spinning.
I’m sure they’re working fast and furious on it.

We can look at the Yahoo news in the meantime lol.

Same as all the other news.

Was like that for a while, all good now though.

@Dutchess_III Ghostery is an add-on that stops trackers. Unfortunately some versions interfered with Yahoo mail. If you have Firefox you can see if you have it by clicking:
“Tools”, “Add-Ons” and looking at the list for Ghostery. If it is there, click “Disable”.
If that works, I will tell you how to white list a certain tracker.
