Why does Yahoo Mail's performance slow down?

July 18, 2017 at 21:28:09
Specs: Windows 10, 4 GB
When I run Yahoo Mail in the Chrome Browser, eventually the response time slows down to the point of being unusable. Not only that but Yahoo Mail prevents me from accessing other tabs open in Chrome until whatever is happening finally goes to completion. Sometimes, I can temporarily "fix" this issue by closing the Yahoo Mail tab and then reopening it. But this fix doesn't doesn't last very long.
To the best of my knowledge, this issue does not occur if I run Yahoo Mail under another browser, such as Opera. Since Chrome is a Google product, is there any chance Chrome is sabotaging a competitor's email program? Or is there some other agenda going on, such as a hidden program extracting the content of my emails for G-d knows what purpose?
Intelligent replies appreciated.

I don't think you need worry about hidden agendas in this context, unless you have malware.

Try Chrome Repair for starters:

"Intelligent replies appreciated"
Strange thing to say.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Usually it is as simple are clearing out all of the browser's history (except passwords) which are probably bogging down your browser.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I'm curious as to whether or not howagood stumbled upon a solution. I, too, have this issue. I've been told by Yahoo that Chrome is a supported browser, but Yahoo runs terribly slow for me, even on Chrome.

And I don't think "Intelligent replies appreciated" is a strange thing to say at all. Believe me, if you'd seen some of the replies I've seen to this same dilemma on another forum, you'd understand.

The way to get replies on a forum is to not insult the helpers by asking for only intelligent replies. It's forum etiquette. In any event if there are nut cases around then why do you think that statement will stop them. By the way I've been helping on this site since mid 1999 so I've met most sorts of people.

As this was raised in July there is no certainly howagood will come back (he/she hasn't so far). The best way to contact the poster is by using the Private Message Center.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I believe you can see the replies to this post, same as I can. The only thing I tried was to update Chrome yesterday. It seems to help helped, but maybe it's too soon to draw any conclusions.
