    Yahoo front page change? If so I dislike it very much!

    Notice you lose all your settings such as what views we had selected and also notice now the web page just goes on for ever look at how small the scroll bar is on the new yahoo as an indication of just how large the page will now be. Also appears no way to personalize like before.

    Well damn it at least firefox still shows correctly.

    My wife's laptop also started with this new yahoo front page as well. It would have been nice to be notified b4 starting of tech trouble shooting...lol yahoo is still a work in progress.
    Lets see how many Techs have to try and fix this issue when there is nothing more than a silent upgrade? Also it seems that it is only in IE and I am using IE9 and 64bit IE9 is also doing the same as 32 bit in IE9.

    Well I ran ccleaner again this morning and that crappy front page is now back to the normal style....this may be okay for Android but not friendly for a normal PC. My Wifes laptop is back to normal now too and she didn't run ccleaner. So maybe the initial response was so poor that they changed their minds or decided to tweak it some more but what ever, I am glad it is gone!:toast: :D :rockout:

    I use My Yahoo! and it is totally unchanged. I don't know any reason to use the vanilla as a home page, it's nothing like the one I mentioned.
