Yahoo! Complaint - Can't close Yahoo ad

Review by bob93 on 2011-12-05
I've been getting a popup screen on top of my Yahoo page trying to get me to put some Yahoo feature in my tool bar. There is an X to close the popup but it doesn't work. To get rid of the popup I have to refresh the screen, then the popup disappears. I got so tired of this I just changed my homepage to another site, bye-bye Yahoo.

Depending on what browser you use you can block pop ups. I use Firefox and I have pop ups blocked and I have the Ad Block Plus add on, so I don't even SEE ads of any kind. It's wonderful.

I also use Firefox which I find far superior to Internet Explorer. I'm assuming that the O.P. is still using I.E. Here's an easy fix to your problem.

In I.E. click tools, click privacy, click pop-up blocker, then check turn on pop-up blocker. You're done. That was easy! Problem solved.

Thanks for your responses. I have Firefox with Block Popups but Yahoo manages to get this one through. I do not get any other popups.
