I'm not sure how Yahoo works, but I think you can import your bookmarked sites to Firefox. Otherwise, you just type in the address of any site you want and Firefox will still get you there. Right now, I am using Firefox for this site, but using Chrome for hotmail... because... it seems hotmail changed something that just doesn't work with Firefox anymore.
Is there a reason you want to switch?

yes, i dislike the new inbox very much, and a few other things as well.
i won't put eveything on (in?) f/fox because in the past it played havoc with some of the groups i was with.
so i consider something new and different.

Inbox... Roxanna, that is Yahoo mail. Are you looking just for a new browser or a new email place?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Hi, Roxanna!
I have Firefox (it's a Browser - it lets us go on-line)
and I have Yapoo for email.
It's VERY CONFUSING on Yahoo!'s "HELP page - it pitches FIREFOX
and then - directly! under that it lists email :
Get the Latest Firefox



  • Mail
  • My Y!
  • Yahoo!

Then/But - If you "clck" on "Mail" it takes you to your INBOX... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I also have Gmail, Hotmail, People PC email - etc. etc etc.
for email - I just don't USE them much. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] And - since Yahoo!
didn't insist ! (thank God!) that I switch to their * [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] * new email
I probably still won't use them much. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

You do not need to change your Browser
(Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc.)
to change your email provider - or add one.
(I know you have email accounts with Yahoo! and Gmail)
IF... you go to Yahoo!'s mail "HELP" and choose "LIVE CHAT"
- it is very possible that you can "persuade" the Yahoo! Rep
you speak with to switch you BACK to the "Classic" (old) email you had previously. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] GOOD LUCK!
AND...
If this isn't what you were asking -
(and with my 'expertise' it is very likely that is isn't [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.])
I'm sorry [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] - and someone who knows something will be
along shortly, I betcha. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

If they switch me over to Beta, I will become unglued. Multitudes of people absolutely hate it and there are many problems with it locking up computers. If that happens, I sure don't want to lose Answers or the 3 Yahoo groups I'm in....so, I don't know.......

JaaJ and breezey,thanks for the clear and precise info, ok, this is what's happening.
the farm town I'm playing is jumping around all over the place for a quite few weeks now,i accidentally discovered it's not f/t fault but Internet explorer, because when f/fox was reinstated the earlier f/t works perfectly ,(for the sake of clarity,IE's is roxy , f/f's is mary) so i need to have another browser for roxy , (the diference between rox and mary is about 130 levels) and i want to keep both,but it may not work having both on f/fox .
mail box:
dislike new yahoo enough to drop it all together, but first will try to get the old one back.
internode has a few things i need to sort out before i use it exclusively.if ever !
gmail is never used.
may be i should just get somebody to do it for me, incase i wreck the whole kaboodle I\'m okay that's just how i feel rollonfloor

Rox yes morning .i didn't get up untill 8 am,but then i was up till midnight cause i kept staring at this computer screen. My computer will freeze up at times and have to wait for it to get into 2nd gear. It won't scrool or i even have been typing and it will stop working . Sometimes i may type a bunch & not notice it froze,then all the sudden the words i typed will just pop up on the screen . WIERD!

Sneaky, you need a complete computer scan to get rid of the cookies hanging in there. Also, when it freezes, something is stopping the move, so ......

press down the Ctrl and Alt and the delete key all at the same time quickly and a screen will pop up, click on 'start task manager.'

Another screen will come on showing what it is that is stuck and running. Click on end task and clear it out. Voila!!

I use Chrome for just about everything. I use Firefox for odds and ends. lol

Ja'aj, I could be wrong, but I believe eventually Yahoo will switch everyone over and you will no longer be allowed a choice. For now, it's not a big deal, until they decided to do away with the old email.

I "think" Safari is for Mac, isn't it?
I have used "Chrome".
I don't like it. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
PJ loves it - and it's all he uses.
As my Grandmother always said, "That's what makes a horse race." [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Bree...
I WILL have a choice.
I will have GMail, Hotmail, PeoplePC Mail, etc, etc., etc. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
(and you are a kill-sport and a spoil-joy.) [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] . [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I sooo hope you're wrong. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
If not... some lucky! ... 'something' ... will get MEEE! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
