Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This add-on, which I got to replace Yahoo Messenger (which stopped this service with no warning) only works until the next reboot.
It then has to be downloaded again!
How hard would it be to stay active?
When it works, it's fine, and I have no other problems,such as are mentioned below.
A great extension gone bad .... VERY BAD! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I've used this extension for many years without any troubles but things have changed for the worse since Yahoo has become the default search engine in Firefox. Now Yahoo! Mail Notifier opens up a new tab in front of my default opening page. Before I can even use my browser I have to go through a number of questions to open a yahoo page that I don't want to view. Yahoo has hijacked my default home page! What is this nonsense? It's is so irritating having to deal with this cr_p. As soon as I found out this extension was at the root of the problem I immediately removed it. Furthermore, I'm even considering dropping Yahoo as my mail client for GMail. I think a lot of folks using this extension will dump it in order rectify this very annoying problem. The people involved in this would be well advised to change it back to the way it was.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Please fix! Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Same here. Used for years but recently it keeps opening a new tab alongside my main yahoo page and prompting me to log in every time i open the browser. :(

I finally got annoyed by this cr@##y plugin popping me up after every browser restart so I uninstalled it.
Boy was I suprised to find that it completely wiped every password in my browser.
Don't install it.
Annoying Log In Tab on Browser Boot Up Rated 2 out of 5 stars
As others have noted, each time Firefox is booted up, a log in tab appears (in addition to other home page tabs) indicating the first attempt to log into Yahoo wasn't successful. Once I reenter my log in information, all is good but having to do this each time I boot up Firefox is rather annoying. Please fix and you will again be the #1 Yahoo mail checker for Firefox.
love this addon but like others has recent issues Rated 3 out of 5 stars
if fixed i will update review. opens a new tab for the yahoo login screen every time. if i exit that tab and then click the add-on i am logged in. thus there is no need to prompt me every time i start Firefox to log in. please fix this. other than that it works.
Always a must have app for me, unfortunately it has some recent issues Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This and gmailchecker are the first addons I install on a fresh firefox. Currently this addon opens up a new tab all the time on browser start with a yahoo login page. Can we get this resolved?
Yahoo! Mail Notifier - still works for me Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I am on pale moon v25.1.0. This add-on (latest version - 1.7.4) still works. However, there is one little issue. Yahoo log in screen comes up when my browser is started. If I disable YMN, I never see that log on screen again. Right now I'm putting up with the log in screen because I like the add-on.
This issue also happens on Firefox v35.

It is/was a great add-on. Has done it's job for years. The only thing I would have liked to have seen it better account switching.
(I can confirm that yahoo has broken the add-on. Check the support/bug page for details.)

As of today, it's useless. 1.074 (or older) do not log in to yahoo.

So far working better than xnotifier Rated 4 out of 5 stars
xnotifier was bogging me down with constant captchas to access emails, was driving me nuts, so dropped it an re-added this, and working better so far, will update this review if I am wrong.

False alerts Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Since the latest round of firefox updates, I keep getting notifications of new emails when there are none. Most frustrating. I've tried logging out and deleting the cookies.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206).

Yahoo! Mail Notifier 220.127.116.11 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
For another time, Yahoo! Mail Notifier works perfectly after regular tests. Thanks for another time Michael. FYI, I use FF 24.1.1 ESR edition and my OS is WinXP SP2. NoScript is one of my "protectors".This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168). This user has 10 previous reviews of this add-on.
Doesn't pop-up anymore Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Finally stopped alerting me of new mail when there was none. But, now it doesn't do the pop-up alerts anymore or show that I have new mail on the icon.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.7). This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.
not fixed Rated 2 out of 5 stars
its still telling me I have 1 new email when I have none, really annoying, deleted all the cookies, no joy:(This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.7).
Still not working Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Really nice, when it worked. However despite saying the issues are fixed, 1.0.7 still does not function (won't check, no new mail showen, etc.) on both Mac and PC.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.7).
Try the pending 22.214.171.124 update. If it doesn't work, click the "alternate checking method" in the options. If it still doesn't work. Go to yahoo.com and sign out, then right click on the page and choose "View Page Info" and then go to the Security tab and click view cookies. Click "Remove All Cookies".
