Did anyone else that created an e-mail account today have the problem with Yahoo! Mail constantly refreshing?

Well, I haven't created a new Yahoo! Mail account for 2 days now. :) I don't notice my Y!Mail accounts constantly refreshing. What browser are you using? When you say constantly refreshing, does it happen at an interval or are you seeing a busy indicator all of the time.

Im using Firefox 3, and the page never goes away, but as soon as the page is loaded, it loads again (as indicated by the status bar), which makes navigating menus very difficult, oddly it does not do this in classic mail.

Also, has anyone figured out how to import messages from an old yahoo account yet? Yahoo says it is easy.

Hmm, I'm not getting the page reloading as you describe. I wonder if it might be a problem between FF3 and Y!Mail, although it's not happening to me in FF3. Just for grins, try the same account in IE and see if it sill happens.

Do you by chance have the Tab Mix extension?

Well, that's a lot of extensions any one of which could be causing a problem with Y!Mail. Here's another experiment to try: run the safe mode version of FF3 and see if doesn't clear up the behavior.

I assume it is one of the extensions because it doesn't do it in Safe Mode.

Well I am almost sure it is Forecastbar Enhanced. Would someone mind installing this extension to see if it causes them the same problem?

I had the exact same problem when trying to close multiple tabs. No Yahoo mail issue but I believe my Tab Effect extension is the cause.
