Yahoo Incompatibility with XP
Windows XP Pro / Office XP Pro

 6:23 pm on Oct 13, 2001 (gmt 0)

Never had problems with Yahoo/Yahoo mail before, but ever since I upgraded to the XP series, I have had nothing but trouble. Was unable to find any way at all to actually contact Yahoo itself for help, so here I am ..... HELP !!!!! Unless I actually type Yahoo.com in my browser, I cannot even log into yahoo at all. No shortcuts work at all no matter where I try to go in Yahoo. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to WmW, Tess. I think this is more a Microsoft issue than a Yahoo issue, possibly the way your browser and shortcuts are configured. Unless someone here is familiar with XP, you might have to contact MS support about it, or re-read the documentation that came with XP.

Tess, I just found a link to download the Yahoo browser toolbar in our Yahoo forum:


Also, there are some threads in the Yahoo forum concerning issues there that have email addresses in the messages. It wouldn't hurt to browse through and look for them. It might be that Yahoo would be interested to know if there's any incompatibility with XP; it's just a matter of finding an email address that'll get to someone.

Hope this helps out.

Could this be a cookie issue maybe?? I don't know much about xp but I do hear the privacy issues are very strict, even with cookies. Is it that you can't login directly, or the page just does not show?

HEY! I have the same problem. I just installed XP myself. I could log on to see my.yahoo homepage, but when I check the box for my computer to remember the password, it won't take the cookie! I set all the security settings on low, turned off the firewall, and adjusted the cookie settings to accept all cookies....still no luck! Looks like microsoft may be trying to steal the customers from yahoo, so they will set there homepage to msn instead of yahoo!
