have half screen when accessing my emails in yahoo.com

January 29, 2017 at 11:37:30
Specs: Windows 7

Only have half of the regular Yahoo.com email. Instead of the whole email now showing up I must scroll down to see it but only in parts. I have tried reducing the screen size with the cntrl - option but to see the entire email screen the text becomes too small and unreadable. I have tried setting the preview pane to "none" but that does not work. It appears as if the preview pane is permanently set on "Preview pane at bottom" and it cannot be changed.

Well. After clicking on most everything I did find one way to get back the full email pane. I went to the tab and did a left click. A pull down menu appeared . I then clicked on "Reload Tab". The email pane immediately went to full pane.

I think this problem has something to do with Ad Blockers which I have turned on. Because, when I have them turned off ads appear and take up that whole previously empty space above the email list.

So, it looks like this is just a band-aid fix because now I have to click on "Reload Tab" each time I want a full email pane.

Needs to be an actual fix, not a temporary one.

Looks like Yahoo is forcing those ads on us. I have noticed the full width ad appearing intermittently. There is an option to close the ad, which results in the ad closing and mail showing full screen.

Hopefully, ad blockers will find and block these new ads.

Remember, yahoo mail is free, so we must put up with the BS or switch.

Under tools> Add ons, there is a light weight ad blocker.
