Thread: Url's within yahoo email

    Url's within yahoo email

    HI

    I use yahoo mail for sending and receiving email messages and recently it so happens that a URL within the text of message does not react when I click on it. H/ever if I copy and paste the Url it works fine.
    The trouble is that this happens when I connect to yahoo using IE but if I use Firefox when I click the url it reacts without any problem.
    Hopefully what I have tried to explain makes sense and any help as to why this is happening and a possible cure appreciated

    tks

    May have an IE security setting that blocks popup's or page transitions turned off, try logging in with IE, then finding the link that you are having trouble with, then right clicking on the link and selecting "open link in new window"

    URL'S within yahoo email

    Hi

    Tried open link in new window using IE and nothing transpires. Maybe will have to use Mozilla Firefox for purposes of opening Url's within in my email in future or just copy/paste when using IE

    You can try to reset some settings in internet explorer; open internet options "right click on the desktop internet explorer icon and select properties, or click on the tool menu at the top of your current browser window and select internet options. Once you have your internet options opened, close all open browser windows, then go back to internet options, select the programs tab, then select "reset web settings" then click on OK, then try your mail links again, if they still do not work, do any of the links say javascript: in the status bar when you mouse over them? you may want to update your java plugin/runtime Sun microsystems has that. If you are using POP access yahoo mail plus, and using outlook express or messanger to download your email messages; you may have to set your default web browser via the internet options/programs tab..

    Hi Guys

    Not for want of trying but matter still unresolved. In view of that have decided to use Mozilla Firefox as my default which works with url's in my email. Pls consider this thread as closed
