      OK - Neo Full Featured is the issue - my mistake. And I'm using Chrome on a superfast wifi broadband network.

      The fact remains that my Yahoo Mail keeps on hanging when I need to open Folders, viz: Drafts / Sent / Spam / Trash / private folders.

      Mike reports below that this has been an issue for about a month - with a work around that implies that it is 'cured' by deleting an 'email open tab' or two. But I rarely ever have any 'email open tabs.' I don't like them. They are unnecessary. I keep them closed. I like to have a clean display of Inbox only - with only one email open at a time either being read or composed. 

      So most of the time I only have the Inbox displayed, then I click on a Folder, and then nothing happens. 

      But I can't reset or cure the 'bug' because I have no tabs to close. I have to resort to refreshing the browser's address bar - which doesn't always work. This is all incredibly time wasting.

      BTW I have to monitor the Trash folder because I am still inadvertently 'deleting' emails that I need to keep - quite why there is a conflicting dustbin icon AND a check-box process for is a moot point. And sometimes I need to access the Sent folder to perhaps forward an email to another contact whom I had forgotten when it was first sent. I also need to access Drafts as I am researching the web for information as I build up an email to be sent later. And I need to check Spam because Yahoo tends to put some wanted emails in there - like legit. posts to / from Yahoo Groups (even ones I have sent or received as a Group 'owner.').

      But if this inability to open Folders has been an issue for over a month why hasn't Yahoo done anything about it? 

      Google Mail works perfectly - 100%. OK - so why don't I change to using that if its so much better? Well because Yahoo Classic was perfect for my needs and it would have been a pain to have to move my entire business and hobbies to another email address. But now the pain is greater in being forced to use the new Yahoo Neo - not fit for purpose - email system. So the change will have to be made - damn it.

      My email hangs up as described below and what others have reported, and I've found that if I click on a different folder and it doesn't respond, I close an email message tab and the folder's contents that I want to switch to will show up. I used to do the refresh idea thing and one day closed a tab just to see if the software might be overloaded and presto! It worked. So now all is well and this workaround has been working for about a month now.

      BUT, it would be nice for Yahoo to fix the underlying issue but have also found that this new version seems to be a work in progress and eventually they will find the bug and exterminate it.

      The biggest irritation of Neo Full Featured  is the inability to open folders - too many times. Refreshing the browser address bar seems to always display the Inbox.

      However when clicking on Drafts / Sent / Spam / Trash / or any private folders - this is simply ignored and nothing happens.

      The URL displayed at the bottom - for ALL folders is something like:


      (the rand being a temporary link to the Mail account being accessed) 

      So there is some internal dynamic process that tries to open and list the folder clicked upon.


      The only way of resetting the processes seems to be to refresh the browser's address bar - BUT THIS DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT FOLDERS WILL OPEN AFTERWARDS.

      This is simply unacceptable.
