Solved iMac will not open Yahoo

February 27, 2018 at 13:16:06
Specs: Macintosh 10.13.3 High Sierra
Suddenly, iMac will not open Yahoo (including Yahoo mail). Safari, Chrome, Firefox; none of the browsers will open Yahoo.

PS: Same thing is happening on my other iMac as well. This is really weird. Never happened before.

Any help greatly appreciated!

✔ Best Answer
Try turning off the router power for about half a minute and see if that helps when it eventually comes back up.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Check proxy settings on both Macs. When I had similar problems with yahoo on my Macs I found that proxy settings had been changed from none to at least two types...

Derek:

Looks like it worked!! Who knew the old "turn it off and then turn it back on" strategy still works?!

Thank you SO much!!

Glad to hear that restarting the router worked for you. For future reference I have also known that to do the trick when only one computer fails to work properly online (or at all).

mmm Agree with Derek in the router reset option as first port of call; having found it useful to try first when even just one computer can't access/open a given site.

Macs (Safari especially) seem to suffer with proxy settings being changed by some means or other - at least in my experience. Yahoo is usually the site that is affected (first); then occasionally others follow...
