From Yahoo's support page:
Switching to basic mail from the full-featured version of Yahoo Mail:
- Mouse over the Settings menu icon | select Settings.
- Click Viewing email on the left.
- Select Basic.
- Click Save.
Use a fresh link to log in to Yahoo webmail - mail.yahoo.com/
Delete your old shortcut to Yahoo and create a new shortcut. If you are relying on your browser (IE, Chrome, FireFox) autocomplete feature, this will find the old shortcut. To remove the old Yahoo address you will need to clear the link history in your browser(s).
In IE and Chrome Ctrl+Shift+Del brings up the options to clear history.
In FireFox you will go in through SETTINGS and find the Privacy icon on the OPTIONS toolbar. You will see another SETTINGS link next to “Clear history when FireFox closes”. Click the link and Clear Browsing History.
