For the last ten years I have used yahoo.com for my homepage. I assume they changed it about a month ago. I tried to set it back but never could. I get these live feeds that is annoying. Well today I installed a hard drive in my wife's laptop and reloaded windows 7 with the Toshiba recovery disks. I did all the windows updates including service pack 1 and when I opened up yahoo.com it was the way it was before the change. I cannot get my desktop set like this for some reason. I will upload a picture of how it looks now on my desktop and how it looks now on the laptop with new hard drive. I just find that strange that even my wife's laptop was the same as my desktop homepage before I installed the new drive and fresh install of windows. Anyone know how to get the old yahoo page back. oldtrig

Makes no difference. How does the page look with your browser? I tried Chrome and IE9 and same way. I would like mine to look like page 2. Its no big deal but just curious on why the new formatted hard drive shows it the way I like it. Oldtrig

Well, mine looks like the top one you posted.

I use Firefox, if that makes a difference.

Using Firefox. I too don't care for the new style Yahoo home page. I logged off and on a few times this AM, and low and behold, for right now, the old style is back.

Don't know how I did it, but it's there, for now.

I too have used Yahoo for about 10 yrs as my home page. I noticed a change as well. But I still customized the way i want it to look if signed in. Granted it looks different than before but i guess this is "Progress?" The thing i notice is more pop-ups than ever before.
I didn't answer your question!! Could it be your cookies? Why not delete all cookies associated with Yahoo and see if that returns it to before.
Mine looks like this now...

I have deleted the cookies many times. It is just strange that the laptop I installed the new hard drive in yesterday shows the page like it used to be, I have closed it and restarted it many times and it still comes up the old way on the laptop. It did not before the HD and clean windows install. I have researched this for some time and I cannot really find the answer. Its never ending when you try and scroll down on the new stupid page. I also logged in to yahoo with my account and tried it that way, not much better . I loved the way it used to come up and the way the laptop comes up now. I am betting sooner or later the laptop will reset to new page but why is it bringing up yahoo like the old way now. All the windows updates were installed on the laptop and it is running IE9. Strange indeed. oldtrig

here is what I typed in the address. I will try and sign in and see if it changes
update
It stayed just like I wanted it when I sign in. Not sure why yours changed but mine is A . I would say to clean all cookies and then set it to ipv4. That's what worked for me anyway. I hope this helps someone other than me. oldtrig

Thanks oldtrig , will have to try that , i wonder if later it will change on its own again to the newer by itself


Worked being signed in was fine and faster loading up using ipv4.yahoo.com
apparently using the earlier ip protocol keeps the page from continuing to load more as
you scroll down like the new style did .
