Annoying Things  
I hate the new Yahoo mail. In their desire to be like Gmail, they've ruined what I liked about them. For months, they gave you the option of using the old or the new, but a few weeks back, it was new or nothing. I hate that each email you click on opens in a new tab, and that my inbox/folders defaults to the first page instead of the last. So far, I haven't found a way to make it not do that.

My tags on LJ no longer autofill. Not sure if it's the new version of Firefox or the new version of LJ add-on. I was never sure where the autofill originated in the first place. But wherever it came from, I miss it.

My keyboard! The keys don't press in smoothly, they're lopsided. I'm not the best typist at the best of times, but this makes it worse. Usually Logitech makes a great product, but the keyboard keys on their newer keyboards need work.

Gmail doesn't open email in a new tab:).
Wrong keyboard annoys greatly, I know:(. Though sometimes you get used to it:).

No, I meant all the changes they seemed to think they needed to make. I think it's flash based, or something like that. Though at least Yahoo isn't doing the threaded thing. It's the reason I loathe Gmail. It just feels Gmailish.

I think you can get email to open in a window below or next to the mail list, like it does in hotmail. It's when you double click that it gets opened in a new tab - well, at least for me. I don't remember what setting I chose to get this, but I can look once I have some extra ti,e.

I've been through the options and haven't found anything I like (not that the offer many options) I'm not a fan of the preview pane, but it may be preferable to the way it is now.

I suppose I shouldn't gripe about something that's free, but I've been happy with them for 15 years - why screw it up?

I haven't checked out any of my Yahoo mail accounts in a while, so I'm not aware of how the new changes work. I do remember getting an email about the new changes and dreading them. I like gmail, even the threads, unless I don't like them. ;)

The change in tag autofill is not just Firefox. I'm having the same issue and I'm on chrome. It's annoying that it's gone.

I guess it must be LJ then. I really miss the autofill tags.

I do not like this 'upgrade,' if that's what they are calling it. Bring back our autofill tags. :/

I searched the support forums and found other people had opened tickets on the issue, so hopefully we'll get it back soon.

Same here, it just whirls away to itself and never opens the mail.

Agree about Yahoo mail.

HATE the new Yahoo mail. I have 2 yahoo accounts, but the second one hasn't been forced to switch yet. I usually check that one second, to get the bad taste of the new one out of my mouth. Also, the new one freezes on me a lot.

Yep yeppers.

Agreed. Yahell has been getting on my last nerve.

I have Yahoo mail, and I'm pretty sure I'm using the new version. Have you tried clicking on Options, and then "Show all messages in a scrolling list (with Preview Pane option)"?

I also miss the LJ autofill, and I've been having major problems with the text editor, especially when I switch back and forth from Rich Text to HTML.

Thank you for verbalizing how I feel about the new and improved Yahoo mail system.
It reminds me of dealing with the new and improved edition of PDF which I finally dumped.
I called CompuTek who built my computer and they told me I was their fifth call about it.
If it ain't broke, then you don't fix it

Finally, I love how Firefox is always blamed.
