I have used this addon for quite some time now and it works great. I hope you will continue to support the Pale Moon browser since Mozilla is effectively telling all the Addon developers to F-off.
Again, Thank You
The best add-on for a Yahoo! user... no question about it.
not blocking the "ad choices" box on left side. Otherwise really good.
I really like this addon but it does not work anymore with Firefox 51, could you fix it please?
My congrats to the developer!Really concise and useful and a great replacer for the Addons in Urlbar addon.Worth it's weight in gold!!!
I downloaded this Add-On today and IMMEDIATELY the ads were all gone. My beef with Yahoo Mail is that they have the "ad manger" X on the ads you dont like- but FAIL to STOP showing them over and over after you "report" on the inappropriate content being shown.
I give it 5 stars for having worked so well for about 3 years. BUT, it suddenly stopped working recently. Hoping for a fix soon.
Thanks so much for this add on. Too bad you cannot do anything about the "Medals Count" box that was forced on to Yahoo users. I know it is only for a short while, but there will be something else after that.
Could you please make an addon to put white space on ads on TOI - no ad blocker works (not even Hostsman), so IP blocking is out. If you use noscript many features such as comments and dropdowns will not work.
I guess the only way out is to put a blank space on the ad area or shrink the size of the ad to 1 pixel.
My request is to you because, I doubt anyone else will write rules or scripts to bypass TOI ads. (or block their ads stealthlily).
Please contact the support email so that I can try helping you :).
This is a breath of fresh air after YAHOO failed to keep me as a loyal Mail Plus customer. Thank you, Piyush!
This in combination with Adblock Plus is amazing! The mails open faster now :D
This works exactly as advertised!
The videos coming up when a folder is empty only started a week or so ago for me and because I've got a fixed monthly contract (10GB a month) I'll be REALLY pleased to see your next release.
c129: In the meantime, I'd really appreciate it if you'd explain exactly how to "add the following to your hosts file".
It's a perfect addon 10/10.
Is there anyway to make it work with chromium based browsers ?
This addon is super. It does exactly waht is says it should. But now Yahoo is showing news videos in an empty folder - like when I empty my trash, it now shows news videos and other news. Can you make this addon block this so that an empty folder just shows emptiness?
EDIT: block videos from yahoo mail empty folder. stop videos playing yahoo mail empty folder:::
I did find a way to stop this behavior.
For others wanting to rid themselves of this garbage, just add the following to your hosts file. Instructions here - https://support.rackspace.com/how-to/modify-your-hosts-file/
...and bingo, videos are gone, all Yahoo mail functions stay intact.
Thank you for the appreciation! The fix for these new video ads is already in the works, and is coming soon in next release.
its blocking the header of yahoo email very effective
Always an add on of choice, but while it blocks the top panel (advertisement) on Yahoo Mail, only half of the page remains. It would be nice to be able to utilize the entire page.
Works just great. Removes all yahoo garbage...
PLEASE: incorporate removal of damn annoying yahoo videos playing in your inbox if you have no mail in it. I hate this yahoos at yahoo coming with more and more band wasters...
Thanks for the appreciation, and also for the update. I didn't know that they have another ad when you have no mails. I'll test it, and once I'm able to see that video ad will try to upload the fix as soon as possible.
Oh what a joy to find this add-on - my email provider dumped me into Yahoo mail and the adds and "spammy" emails were driving me nuts. This add-on did exactly what it promised to do. If I could award more stars I would have done - Thank-you
I now no longer have objectionable ads in my mail showing women as s*x objects (or any other kind of ad). It worked immediately without even restarting the computer.
My bad, wasn't updated. fine now. :)
Can't edit last message. This site's communication method is horrible!
OK, I see, it replaced my last comment with with new one. that's ok I guess.
The current 2.50 still does not work at all with Pale Moon. Users of Pale Moon can use Webmail Ad Blocker 4.25.1 signed which blocks all ads except the embedded inbox ad and also expands to fill full screen. The Ublock Origin 1.6.1 add-on will block the embedded inbox ad that the former add-on does not so combining both of these two add-ons will get the same result that this add-on does that only supports Firefox. (To be fair I'm giving 5-stars because the developer's intention is to only support Firefox), but thought I'd post this for the benefit of Pale Moon users. Note that the former (Webmail Ad Blocker) add-on also expands the page UI to fill full screen for not only Yahoo but also for Hotmail, Gmail and Outlook.com as well.
Great extension. Removed all my Yahoo ads without even restarting firefox. Great work!
Great add-on. However now the Yahoo mail app is a bit too wide. When I can see my folders on the left side the e-mail text runs off-screen at the right and vice versa. Is there a way to shrink the e-mail panel by a few columns so I don't have to scroll left and right continuously?
