Email Hyperlinks problem in Yahoo Mail


The Teacher

Likes # 0

For some reason I now cannot click a hyperlink when they appear in e-mails, either in text or graphic form.

I can hover over the link but I do not get the cursor to change into a "fist" it remains as it would if writing a Word document.

I cannot recall changing settings and I have searched through Yahoo help but cannot seem to find a solution. I though perhaps that it could be that I have e-mails in plain text not html, but cannot find where to check. However I do get images in e-mails and so don't think it is plain text.

How can I restore the function to be able to click hyperlinks? I am running Windows 7, 64 bit version, and Yahoo Mail classic.

Please help, it is driving me mad!!!

Hi,

Not using IE, using Waterfox, the 64bit version of Firefox. It is only recently that it has happened but I cannot find anything in settings or whatever to help.

I have also tried this in IE and I still cannot open hyperlinks in mail. Hyperlinks seem to work on webpages OK but as above with Waterfox IE does the same, gives me the cursor as I would have in Word when typing. It doesn't even give me the URL of the page it is trying to link to.
